The Marketplace 6 Cinemas was Winston-Salem’s second multiplex theatre that opened on May 31, 1985 under Plitt Southern Theatres with a seating capacity of 1,700. At the time of its opening, the complex housed two 350-seat auditoriums, two 275-seat auditoriums, and two 200-seat auditoriums. Features included expanded concession stand, restroom facilities for those with wheelchairs and extending parking in front and on the sides of the cinema. The opening attraction for its grand opening was Chevy Chase in “Fletch” that played on two screens! The coming attractions were “Back To The Future”, and “The Goonies”. Lots of great memories!!! A lot of movie blockbusters got first-run billing here ranging from “Top Gun”, “Batman”, “Jurassic Park” and others.
By 1988, Cineplex Odeon purchased this theater from Plitt until 1990, when Carmike Cinemas got a hold of this cinema from both Cineplex Odeon and Plitt Southern Theatres, but it was still a cash money making cow showing first-run films.
Carmike closed this theatre in 1999, but it has reopened as a second-run discount movie house under an independent chain.
