Battlefield Mall 6 - Springfield, MO

The Battlefield Mall Cinema 6 opened December 16, 1982 and was originally operated by General Cinemas Corporation. In Late-1989 it was purchased by Wehrenberg Theatres. There were six auditoriums with two larger auditoriums seating around 450 each. The smaller auditoriums seated from about 295 to 350.

It opened slow but picked up steam quick and became the busiest theater in town for sometime. It was opened during the "blue law" where everything else in the mall was closed on Sundays, which changed within a year. It was closed on January 7, 2001.

When did the change in ownership from GCC to Wehrenberg take place?

Wehrenberg took over GCC theatres in Missouri in October 1989.

I remember seeing Return of the Jedi there twice in 1983 & Ghostbusters in 1984. Too bad they closed it

Also Batman in 1989 and Batman Forever in 1995

I worked at this theater the 1st day that it opened. Later became the assistant manager. It was fun to work there and be in the mall. I met a lot of people.

What took this theater’s place after closing?

50sSNIPES on May 5, 2024 at 6:20 am

It closed because of the Wehrenberg chain’s bankruptcy. Wehrenberg Theatres began operating the Battlefield Mall 6 in late-1989 after General Cinema operated the theater for its first seven years of operation.
