News About This Theater
- Jul 14, 2009 — Cary’s first movie theater now community space
Opening on July 20, 1973, the South Hills Twin Cinema was Cary’s first ever twin theatre. It was located on Buck Jones Road across the street from the South Hills Shopping Center, near the Raleigh Beltline. The total seating capacity was 950. Screen One had 500 seats, and Screen two had 450 seats. It was also known as the Regency Theatres 1 & 2 on June 10, 1977. On January 26, 1979 it was taken over by Martin Theatres. By the mid-1980’s this theatre went from showing first-run features to becoming a second-run discout house under Carmike Cinemas, before it closed its doors in 1994. It was converted into a fitness gym in 1995.
The Beyond Fitness gym closed in 2006, and the building lay empty until 2008, when it was taken over by the Connections Church, which opened in 2009. The main hall can now seat 250 and has been equipped with projection facilities.
