UA Market Place 6

The Cinemas I-II-III was the best theatre in town for a number of years. It got the best of the first-run movies and had the best sound. It opened on June 3, 1976. It was operated by Fairlane-Litchfield. Soon after opening it was renamed Market Place Cinemas and a fourth screen was added on May 18, 1979. On July 1, 1983 another 2-screens were added. It was taken over by United Artists in the late-1980’s. It closed on September 28, 2000 after the Amstar 14 and the Starlight opened. The theatre was converted into a senior services building.

This was a Fairlane-Litchfield theater during the late ‘70s and most of the '80s.

This was first opened as Cinemas I-II-III on June 3, 1976, and was operated by Fairlane-Litchfield. The theater opened with “Ode To Billy Joe” (just a day after it premiered at the Paramount Theatre in Jackson, Mississippi, and was one out of 550 theaters who ran the film the day after Jackson’s world premiere) at Screen 1, “Whale Of A Tale” at Screen 2 and “Eat My Dust” at Screen 3. A short time later, the theater was renamed the Market Place Cinemas to give full detail.

Three more screens were added in the early 1980s while remaining its ownership with Fairlane-Litchfield, bringing a total to six screens in total.

Taken over by United Artists in the late 1980s, United Artists successfully operated the theater for more than a decade until closure due to UA’s bankruptcy on June 4, 2000, and was last known as the UA Market Place 6.
