The Bell Tower West would have its own CinemaTreasures page soon, as this is the original Bell Tower East/Bell Tower North before being bridged together on May 23, 1997. The Bell Tower East opened as the Bell Tower 6 on December 17, 1982, and the Bell Tower North 18 opened on June 25, 1993.
Does anyone remember the name of the 6 screen Theatre that Eastern Federal Theatres opened in Ft. Myers in the early 1980’s? Is so, what was the name of it and address? Whatever happened to it?
December 17th, 1982 grand opening also posted online.

I know the original Cobb Theaters built some of their early multiplexes in pairs (Jupiter, Kissimmee), but I never knew that they had a “triplet” property. From what I understand, they knocked down BT West 6 and put a Saks 5th Avenue store in its place.
