Google Earth imagery would suggest that this 16-plex is an entirely new building.

If the information on Mike Rivest’s site for this theater is accurate, it went to nine screens in 1990 and to sixteen in 1999; both expansions apparently during the time when it was under ACT III management.

According to this article and the comments that follow, Regal has installed one of those IMAX-lite screens in this theater: View link

And I don’t really understand what is really meant by the line in the article that reads: “…and the movie is projected beyond the edges of the screen to make it appear as if the movie surrounds the viewer.” That sounds more like poor projection and/or bad masking to me.

Does anyone have a timeline of when this theater went from 2 to 7 and 7 to 16?

Remember how nice and modern this theater seemed in rustic Fairbanks … Saw “Freddy’s Dead” and “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle” here …
