I think Touchstar still owns this one. It was a Cineplex Oden, but closed before the merger. Touchstar runs it as a discounted first run theatre (tickets are 5.75 for adults and 3.50 for children and seniors). The touchstar organization also runs the Southcase 7, down the street, a former Regal and even before that part of the first fleet of the Cobb chain, as well as a former General Cinema in Altamante Springs.

Strange, the theatre is still in good repair, they added LED displays above the theateres (Cineplex Oden theatres of this era ussually had a number and the poster of what was playing). It hasn’t been updated much, it has two snack bars, the right one is closed. The cinema has 3 theatres to the right, and 4 to the left. I doubt its seats were updated, but last time I visited it (to see 40 Year Old Virgin opening weekend) the signage as well as the staff uniforms all read “Touchstar Cinemas”. Zola could have aquired it in that time, after searching through their website I discovered the company, like Touchstar, that aquires Florida cinemas left over from before the mega-plex boom (these theatres have a loyal following all their own). A few of Zota’s cinemas look like they were from Regal, one even looks to be from Cobb Cinemas (before Regal aquired the chain). They also have partnership with two other chains (although the website doesn’t give much information about the nature of the partnership). does not list the Sand Lake as theirs.

On my last visit to this area this theatre had been demolished! A gap where the ticket office entrance was it has been surgically removed, a great loss as This had a nice THX screen if look on google maps you can see the results
