AMC closed the AMC Classic Plaza 8 on March 16, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The circuit made the closure permanent that summer becoming one of many theatres closed by a circuit during the pandemic.

True, but even that GKC facade was an improvement over the original theater’s appearance. Those 70s-era Butterfield-built theaters were little more than cement block bunkers. The interiors were very plain.

You have to admit that Carmike did a nice job in renovating this theater after looking at old photos from the GKC era.

Back in 2005, I wrote a piece online devoted to the sale of the GKC theater chain to Carmike called “Death of a Theater Chain.” The article also sums up the ownership history of the Plaza Cinemas. You can see it at http://home.comcast.net/~steelbeard1/flinn070505.htm
