AMC Classic East Towne 10

Opened December 17, 1993. Carmike’s Millertown Pike 10 is something of a standard issue multi-plex with plenty of parking, near the interstate and a shopping mall. The lobby is spacious with candy counters at each side. The ten auditoria are arranged on either side of a transverse center corridor. The hall is distinctive only for it’s having been hurriedly remodeled within a couple of years of its original opening.

When Regal’s competing first run theatre was expanded from four to nine screens, all with stadium seating, Carmike quickly closed half of the Millertown Pike 10, rebuilt those auditoria with stadium seats, reopened those, then closed the other half and built stadium seats there.

The Millertown Pike 10 had six halls equipped with digital projection. Picture quality and sound were quite good in all halls. It was closed on June 25, 2023.

To follow up on the above, what makes a Cinema Treasure? If it’s only architecture, then this certainly isn’t it. The MT10 is clean enough, and has a bit of decor to it, but it certainly is no Rapp & Rapp jewel.

If I have one REAL complaint about the MT10 it is related to the retro-fit installation of the concrete risers to provide stadium seats. The original floors followed the practice of sloped floors. When the forms for the new risers were built, the contractor DID NOT verify that the new floors and steps would be level. The result is that the risers and steps pitch forward noticably. As the seats are built with a backward tilt, it isn’t noticable when seated, and it isn’t really a problem when entering / moving up the steps. But heaven help you walking down the steps to leave. It might be appropriate after seeing Titanic, but the list toward the bow always makes me uncomfortable when leaving the show.

Good question as to what constitutes a classic and as with all other forms of art, the standards are subjective. This is not to give credence to the architectural design of the Millertown or to disparage the works of Rapp & Rapp. Evidence by your excellent report on the Millertown, such a venue might be worthy of being defined as an odd treasure.
Thanks for bringing this topic to the forum.
