News About This Theater

Triangle Cinemas at Six Forks

Opened on August 1, 1986 under Cineplex Odeon Corporation and Plitt Southern Theatres. This 1,650-seat capacity multiplex cinema was complete with six state of the art widescreen auditoriums, with full widescreen projection that was capable of showing larger presentations in Dolby Stereo Sound. Luxurious plush seating in all auditoriums throughout, with advance ticket sales available for same day presentations and coming attractions. The theatre had its own front door parking. Cineplex Odeon operated this theatre until 1991 when Carmike Cinemas took over, and they closed it in 2000.

Doug Cooper and Bill Peebles, company manager of Ambassador Entertainment reopened the theatre in 2003 and had major renovations done. It played a variety of films that included first run features as well as foreign and independent films. It was closed on March 16, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

It was reopened on April 13, 2023 as the Triangle Cinemas at Six Forks.

Mike Rogers: This was one of the theatres CARMIKE abandon and left it for a dump when they closed it in 2000. Bill Peebles of Ambassador Entertainment basically saved this theatre from the wrecking ball and did a million dollar restoration and reopened in 2003.

I was in Durham N. C. the day this Cineplex Odeon theatre opened. Garth Drabinsky the Cineplex Odeon founder and President opened two theatres in Raleigh that day! He arrived by helicopter and descended on the parking lot. It was like a god arriving from Heaven! They were extremely nice theatres for their day (1986) and I was damn proud to see the Cineplex Odeon from across the parking lot. It was absolutely GROSS to see that CARMIKE took over these theatres!!

Just because it annoys me to hear otherwise, I must point out that Six Forks' majority owner is Doug Cooper, a longtime cinema fixture in Raleigh. Peebles is a minority partner there. Cooper is wholly responsible for reopening Six Forks. The theater is operated under the Ambassador umbrella almost entirely for reasons of film booking and economies of scale involving vendors.

Also, the theater was shuttered when it closed in 2000 until it was reopened in 2003.

This theatre’s old marquee is almost the same as Cinémas Place Charest in Quebec City, another Cineplex Odeon theatre. It was changed later.

I drove by it recently. Sadly, this did not survive the pandemic. It closed a couple of years ago.
