It was known as ‘Greenville’s Luxurious New Twin Theatres’ when it opened on June 16, 1977 as the Buccaneer Movies 1 & 2 under Charlotte-based Consolidated Theatres. It had a seating capacity of 600 (300 in each auditorium that were divided by a concession stand in the middle). The Buccaneer Movies 1 & 2 was Greenville’s second twin theatre that was located in the Greenville Square Shopping Center on Arlington Boulevard.
By December of 1978, a third auditorium was added which split the second auditorium into two sections with 150 seats in each). It was renamed Buccaneer Movies 1-2-3.
Carmike Cinemas acquired the Buccaneer Movies 1-2-3 after its acquisition of Consolidated Theatres in 1989 and it was renamed Buccaneer Triple Theatres. By 1998, Carmike Cinemas opened a 12-screen multiplex theatre that closed the Park Theatre and the Plaza Cinema 3, and the Buccaneer Triple Theatres went from showing first-run features to becoming a second-run dollar theatre.
The Buccaneer Triple Theatres was closed by Carmike Cinemas in 2000 due to Carmike’s bankruptcy, along with all other Carmike cinemas and their discount grindhouses that were east of Raleigh.
