Treadwell, the old building was torn down and replaced by the office supply store.
If memory serves that old building housing the three movie theaters was oblong. I remember going by the demolition sight one afternoon. The building was completely demolish except the back wall. Hanging on the wall was the screen from what was the largest of the three theater. Its reflective quality made it glisten in the afternoon sun. In this mist of ruble and decay was a luminous white canvas. It was a surreal sight.
If I remember correctly, the Office Depot used the existing building and did not demolish it.
This was another venue our UF Sci-Fi club did a lobby display for: 1989’s Batman. I was disappointed that the house had mono sound!
Ann Dunbar was managing this theatre June 3 1983.
I think it was triple before 1982,Chuck. I have it playing July 1 1981 “FOR YOUR EYES ONLY” “DRAGONSLAYER” and “RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK”.
