I remember seeing Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Batman Returns (1992) there. On both trips we ate at the Ponderosa Steakhouse nextdoor. The last film I saw there was Titanic (1997) in 1998.

It was in the big auditorium but sound system was shot.

Too bad, it was a nice movie trip on the weekends.

I worked at this theatre from 1983 – 1990. It was run by mid-america when I started and I would say around 1985 it was bought by AMC.

The Truman Corners Cinemas quad was opened in 1972 by Mid-America Cinema Corp., and was a slightly larger version of the same company’s Blue Ridge Cinemas opened at Independence, Missouri, the previous year. The December 18, 1972, issue of Boxoffice said that the opening of the Truman Corners Cinemas was set for December 22.

The new house had 1,280 seats, divided 430, 430, 210, and 210. The Boxoffice item did not name the architects, but an item about the Blue Ridge Cinemas in the December 20, 1971, issue had named that four-plex’s architects as Fullerton, Carey, Kaster & Oman.

Mid-America was still operating this theater as late as 1979. I’ve been unable to discover when it was taken over by AMC.

Was this one of the last theatres AMC opened when they were still known as Durwood Theatres?
