I used to work here at the Holiday Village, so feel free to ask any questions. The renovation was definetly helpful: the old one was very old and dirty: nothing was ever clean, and the heatres had poor sound and screens. I had to go a year and a half without a movie theatre in town, but it was well worth it!
I work here at the Redstone 8, so if anyone has any questions about this place, feel free to ask!
I am really going to this miss this place. I am only 18 years old, and I feel so priveleged to have been there. I used to go there with my dad all the time. I don’t believe I have seen a movie there in a number of years. I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard this was becoming 24 Hour Fitness! Ever since Larry H. Miller put in his ridiculous “Megaplex” theatres, people have been straying from one of the main points of going to the cinema: the theatre itself. I am really afraid that by the time I am 30 there will be no theatres left like this in the country.
It is such a catch-22…on one hand, I am glad that the current owner preserved the original architecture, but furious and upset that he turned it into a goddamn rug showroom! At the same time, though, it would be probabl be even worse to see it totally demolished, gone forever. So it’s a toss up between gone forever emotionally, or gone forever physically. I am just so sad that there is really no turning it back to a theater again. The seats were torn out and sold to other theatres, the projectors were taken apart and sold by part…It’s just so terrible!
Those new photos want to make me cry! I am only 18 yrs. old but I saw many movies at this theatre with my dad. Good Times! Yeah i just CANNOT believe that they did this to this amazing place! I am writing this at the movie theatre I currently work at and both my managers took part in closing it down. If you want details…emial me…its too sad and graphic to talk about here! No joke!
