Final Maruqee

The Beaucatcher Cinemas 7 is located in Asheville on Haw Creek Lane, directly off South Tunnel Road and across the street from the Asheville Mall. It originally opened as a five-screen theatre under Litchfield Theatres on December 13, 1985. By the time United Artists Theatres took over the Beaucatcher Cinemas in 1988 it expanded from five screens to seven screens, with auditoriums 1 & 7 being the largest. All auditoriums are equipped with the latest Dolby Digital stereo systems and astounding large screens. All auditoriums are lined with drapes.

The Beaucatcher Cinemas 7 remained one of the best theatres in Asheville, to see all the latest Hollywood releases, where it has been in operation for more than 30 years. It was closed by Regal on January 16, 2017. It was soon demolished.

The developer has put up a sign saying land redevelopment so I called him and asked will this theater get to stay or possible a rebuild or a new modern theater and I was told no. The plans are retail shops which really pisses me off more than you can imagine. We need more retail like a hole in the head. I can only hope that the city council denies there plans for redevelopment. According to the man I spoke with the theate will be gone by early 2017. UGH :(

Thank you rivest 266 for all the Asheville theater pics. So sad this theater is going to close by the end of the year.

The official closing is Monday January 16. The theater will be demolished to make way for a strip plaza, a Panera Bread and a Chipotle. Just what Asheville needs another strip plaza and more restaurants. We have very limited theaters here. UGH

The walls of what was once a landmark movie theater in Asheville are starting to come down.
Demolition begins at Beaucatcher Cinemas

Demolition has begun on the old Beaucatcher Cinemas on Tunnel Road. The theater has been there for decades.
