On April 22, 2011, a 33-year-old man from Winter Haven was found unconscious in front of the Universal Cineplex after being tased by an off-duty Orange County Sheriff officer due to disorderly conduct. The man was then taken to Dr. P. Phillips Hospital and later died.

Over my visits to the theatre during different years, never saw the theatre at Universal crowded, usually empty. My guess AMC didn’t want to spend money on upgrading the Orlando location. They did a renovation in the Universal Hollywood location. Downtown Disney Springs AMC is much more busier than Orlando, They now have reserved seating in all auditoriums.

There is a 20 screen Cinemark across the highway. I wonder if they will close that location once this one reopens. The mall it was attached to has closed. Because of that I doubt it’s due to anti trust as the Disney location is far enough away that it does not compete directly.

I don’t really know if that would be competition with the Disney multiplex as many guests stay on site at Disney, (or in the area of Universal), that both theaters could easily survive seperately. The only way they “compete” would be in terms of locals, but there are plenty of tourists at either location.

Was this an antitrust issue and why Cinemark is taking over moviebuff82?

Now they’ll compete against the AMC in Disney World!!! This is going to be interesting…

I thought parking was free after 6, if you go out to eat at City Walk a restaurant might validate. When we went many years ago before City Walk opened I remember hating having to walk from the garage to the studios with nothing along the way and no monorail, now with other stuff including Islands of Adventure its bearable. Also they offer Valet Parking next to the theater, which I remember was only a few bucks more than the regular parking and therefore seemed worth it since you were much closer to the gates to the parks.

City Walk has two floors, I don’t remember the divide, but I do remember they have a huge theater upstairs with seating right outside the doors (sort of a mini-lobby, reminds me for all you NJ movie goers of theaters 6 and 7 at the old Route 4 Tenplex). They also have a “party pass” I remember where for $20 bucks or so you can get dinner and a movie at certain restaurants (of coarse Emril’s wasn’t one of them), it was a great value. I hadn’t been there since AMC took over, but it suffered from the same issues as other Loews Cineplex sites, in that that chain had horrible operations, for that reason I preferred Muvico/now Regal down the street at Pointe Orlando (also why this theater won’t get an IMAX). I also remember this theater serving beer at the main concession stand as well.

Still, it’s worth noting this was intended to be a Cineplex Odoen theater before the merger happened, I also think it was intended to have 16 screens, but later was upgrade to 20. Fondest movie memory here: Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, the late show opening night – fun crowd.

Do you have to pay for CityWalk parking to park here?

The only bad thing about this theater is that I believe you have to pay the Universal Studios parking to go to this theater.

Universal probably built this I guess to compete with Disney’s AMC Pleasue Island 24 Theatres in Downtown Disney, just like the whole City Walk thing is to have a Universal version of Pleasure Island and Downtown Disney. They really did a nice job at rebuilding Universal Studios over the last 5 years.
