Tavernier Cinema 5

The 544-seat Tavernier Twin Cinema was opened in 1980. From 2000 to 2002 it was operating as the Tavernier Towne Cinemas. It was closed and expanded by Sam & Ayman Nekhaila, reopening as a 5-screener from July 2003. It was taken over by B&B Theatres on December 13, 2014.

After the ownership change, B&B spent $150,00 on technical and cosmetic upgrades including a digital 3D projector to showcase “Avatar” on December 18. B&B pulled out on February 20, 2022 and it is now operated as an independent movie theatre by Sean & Sam Nekhaila since March 1, 2022.

The Tavernier Twin Cinema launched in 1980 just a year after the shopping center housing the venue was established as the Tavernier Towne Mall. The complex, however, was most commonly referred to as a “shopping center” and its genesis was as a shopping center in 1976. The venue operated from 1980 to 2000, assuming, on a 20-year lease as the Tavernier Twin Cinema and then as the Tavernier Towne Cinemas from 2000 into 2002 when it closed to expand on July, 2002 by operators - then Sam and Ayman Nekhaila.

After its almost 22 years as a twin cinema, the venue re-emerged in July of 2003 as a five-screen operation retaining the Tavernier Towne Cinemas moniker. On December 13, 2014, it was called the B&B Tavernier Cinema 5 operated by the B&B Circuit.

B&B closed it and the rest of its operation on March 16, 2020 for the COVID-19 pandemic. It reopened but purportedly did not ever reconnect with its audience closing at the end of its showtime schedule on February 20, 2022. It soon continued as an independent thereafter taken on by Sean and Sam Nekhaila who returned to the venue. They reopened on March 1, 2022 as the Tavernier Cinema 5.
