Opened July 3, 1998 by Muvico, this megaplex has 20 ‘regular’ screens and an IMAX-equipped auditorium. Located in the Pointe Orlando outdoor mall, the box office is on the ground level. A long escalator ride takes patrons to the theater’s entrance.
Once inside, visitors are in the middle of a large round lobby with plenty of hangout room, benches and video games. The auditoriums are in two sections with each having ten screens with a total seating capacity of 3,800. All screens are large even in the small auditoriums with 95 seats. The largest non-IMAX screen has 298 seats. The IMAX screen located in the middle of the two sections is six stories tall and has about 450 seats.
This theater is now operated by Regal Cinemas. Recliner seating was installed in the mid-2010’s resulting in the total seating capacity being reduced to 1,269.

The Imax screen was removed a few years ago.
I was visiting Orlando and emailed Muvico to find out what they were showing and got an email back saying it had been removed.
The Pointe 21 was purchased by Regal Entertainment Group. I think they’re refurbishing it as such.
They’re also painting it white as part of the uglifying of Pointe Orlando.
Well Regal added back in that Imax…
I remember a “Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland” theme at the theater that was very pleasant & soothing to the eyes. Muvico is known to have “themes” at their theaters & was wondering if the whole themeing was removed when Regal took it over! I recall seeing the 1st Charlie’s Angels movie at this theater & the “big thing” at the theater during my visit was Star Wars Episode I in IMAX, “50,000 watts of sound”, etc, etc…
I stayed at a hotel across the street from The Pointe last month & the shopping center is looking a little “dead”…lots of empty shops & not many people walking around…& this was a FRIDAY NIGHT, signs of the economy I’m sure. Wondering if the theater can stay afloat in that shopping center.
This opened on July 3rd, 1998. Grand opening ad in the photo section.
For the record this is one of many full-sized IMAX auditoriums which is now, unfortunately, only showing 2K digital projection that cannot fill the screen. Hopefully they upgrade to laser soon.
Please update 1269 seats (recliners were installed a few years ago)
This theatre’s opening movies include Armageddon (on four screens), Dr. Dolittle, Out of Sight, The X-Files, Mulan, Can’t Hardly Wait, The Truman Show, A Perfect Murder, Godzilla, Hope Floats, Deep Impact, The Horse Whisperer, Titanic, Six Days Seven Nights, Into the Deep in IMAX 3D, and Super Speedway in IMAX.
Seating capacities at this theater, post-recliner conversion (via Fandango’s reserved seating service):
Curious to what the original capacities were before the recliner conversion, and how they went from 298 to 80/87.
