With the coming of the Providence Place Mall in 1999 and the opening of this cinema complex by Hoyts Cinema, movies once again returned to downtown Providence after decades of absence, and with a vengeance. Located on the floor overlooking the third floor food court, the cinema entrance faces the one for the Feinstein IMAX Theatre, which opened in 2000 (and has now been incorporated into the complex since it was taken over by Showcase Cinemas). The auditoriums vary in size and are situated off a substantially sized lobby.
The theatre is annoying to try to get to if you are walking in from street level, since the various escalators and elevators don’t ascend with any logical continuity but force you to walk all over the place in order to get to where you’re headed. It’s a bit easier if you park in the vast adjacent garage.
Most of the programming duplicates what is shown at the two Showcase Cinemas in nearby Seekonk, Massachusetts as well as the two in Warwick. Shoppers at the large and often trendy mall (boasting a Nordstrom’s) can conveniently take in a movie before or after their material quests. Substantial parking discounts are given for purchases (including film tickets) totaling over $10.
