The AMC Tri-City 8 officially opened on July 18, 1986. (There was a benefit premiere the day before with $1.00 admission and free popcorn.)

The debut presentations were:
Aliens (in 70mm)
Club Paradise
American Anthem
The Patriot
The Karate Kid Part II

There is some question as to whether this theater is located in Largo or Clearwater.

MajorMajor, I wonder why I couldn’t get the theater to come up on the AMC web page?

When you go to the map, which uses the 5140 address, and go to the satellite photo, it shows no building. I haven’t been to Largo for a few years, but I found the 5100 address somewhere and if you change the address to 5100 it zooms into a building. Do you know if that is the theater?

When you type in 5100, the marker pops up between two buildings. The theater is the larger on to the north, rather than the narrow one.

I was able to find the theater on AMC’s website:

The theater is located in Largo.

The theatre is closed and the marquee on the road has been stripped.

Judging from on site view, it is fenced off and appears to being prepared for demolition.

Please change the status to ‘demolished’.
