Barry, if you decide to write about the theatres ; cinema treasures has all the GCC theatres listed under chains,But i never noticed Regency 1.2.3. listed. I could have overlooked it.There are so many. You might tell Charles that GEORGIA SQUARE CINEMAS are listed.I hope he could add more to Zack’s memory.We owe him that much for being a hell of a theatre manager and close friend. My son Sean has his middle name Craig!

Southeast Cinema Entertainment of Charlotte, NC acquired the Citadel Mall Cinema 6 from AMC and reopened it. They operated it until Labor Day 2008 at which point they closed and demolished it, replacing it with a 16-screen IMAX cinema. It reopened as “Citadel Mall IMAX Stadium 16” on October 2, 2009.

Well,I give up trying to get Barry on. He did pass on this story for CT readers. “One afternoon i was standing in the lobby and noticed a rather tall fellow.He caught my attention and as i looked harder it was the actor GEORGE KENNEDY who was standing in line to see a movie.Well, i had my doorman walk out and bring him to a side door. He told me he came to see a friend’s new movie.Well, it turned out CLINT EASTWOOD was his friend and he came to see "SUDDEN IMPACT” No charge enjoy the show.On the way out Mr.Kennedy autographed a “SUDDEN IMPACT” one sheet writing “LOVED THE MOVIE CLINT, GEORGE KENNEDY” Barry treasures that one sheet.

Dec.1 1985 Movies NOW SHOWING. “PLENTY"
And sharing one screen was the G rated “RAINBOW BRITE” and the evening show was “JAGGED EDGE”.Pity there is no interest from Charleston on her theatres.
