Does anyone remember the hot girl that worked there with the super-long nails? She used to work the box office

This was an okay theater. It was convenient to get to and never really crowded. I saw numerous films there including Spiderman, Batman Begins, etc. My wife, son and I went to see Polar Express there during the holidaay season with snow on the ground when the heat went out. It was as cold as the North Pole featured in the film. The employees weren’t that bright and I once had an incident with an obnoxious security guard and a not too bright assistant manager. I eventually complained to the United Artists Regional Manager and got some free tickets and a letter of apology from the manager of this theater. As stated, it was never all that crowded and I’m sure that there were many performances after 10PM where there was no one or one or two people in the theater. When the UA Regal 16 opened a few miles away, this theater’s days were numbered. I think there is a gym there now.

There a health and fitness club where the theater once stood.

Back in the 80’s, I knew one of the security guys. I would get on line for tickets and he would come over and ask what we were seeing. Unless it was opening weekend for a blockbuster, we were all escorted in, no charge.

The description says that this theater opened around 1980. That’s not correct; it opened on July 1, 1987. I should know; like I wrote on 11/15/07, I saw “Innerspace” there on the film’s opening day.

Please update, expanded to 14 screens on September 15, 1995. No official ad of the expansion. The September 22, 1995, the ad said it additional 4 screens. Updated ads posted.

I remember this theatre policy trailer running when it first opened before the movie played. Does anyone know if this also ran at the UA Island Twin?

That one started in 1984, lasted until 1989
