Neuse Boulevard Cinema

This theater opened about 1971 as the Neuse Village Cinema, owned by Stewart and Everett Theatres of Charlotte. Originally a single screen theater, a second screen was added by 1975 in order to compete with the newly opened Southgate Cinema 1 & 2. A third screen was added by 1979.

Carmike Cinemas acquired the Neuse Village Cinema in 1986, renaming it the Cinema Triple. Carmike operated the Cinema Triple until 2001, when they closed the theater due to their Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

By 2004 the theater was reopened by an independent operator under the name Neuse Boulevard Cinema.

This theatre was a “Rocking Chair Theatre” when it first opened, and still had rocking chairs under Carmike. I haven’t been to the Neuse Cinema since the present owners took over, so I’m not sure if they still have rockers in the auditoriums.

The third auditorium was not added until the eighties. The theatre is currently owned by an old time Stewart &Everett theatre manager. Good luck.

Built about 1970 and operated by Stewart & Everett Theatres corp until that entity was purchased by Carmike Cinemas in 1987.

A second screen was opened in late 1977 and the cinema was renamed “Neuse Village Cinemas”. A third screen was added about 1983. The original was a rocking chair cinema. the two additions were standard Irwin theater seats.

It now operates as an independent, with digital cinemas.

This “rocking chair” cinema was where “I guess” I saw JAWS in the summer of 1975. I had to have seen it here, no other theater in the area had the rocking chairs. I’m very glad to see it is still opened. Going in the water after seeing JAWS was very different than prior to seeing the movie.
