You know,Tim the day is coming and really here, when 35mm movies will be like silent films.While i was never a projectionist.I just knew when the film cans came in Thursdays i Picked up the film can and toted the lastest Eastwood up the booth i had a film in my hands. I COULD pick up and many times did clips on the cutting room floor.Yeah, things are better,but i do miss our old theatres in AUGUSTA; just like you in your city.

I grew up in the 60’s, in the era of reserved seat, roadshows, single screen movie palaces and all the old bells and whistles. I sure do miss those days, when a movie would play out it’s run downtown before even coming to the suburbs. However I must say that I DO like today’s multiplexes for the simple reason of stadium seating, wide curved screens and superior sound. Reminds me of my younger days sitting up in the balconies of all the old theatres, which were just like todays stadium seating. One of my favourite theatres here in the Toronto area is the AMC Interchange with 30 screens. Lots of choice and often holdovers from a couple of months or more….sort of like the old double bills and neighbourhood runs of my youth.

CHUCK 1231.. I Guess you are right;my oldest son worked at a 14 plex here and understood my love of the old theatres,but you cannot even think of 20 plexs as treasures.We have one here in Augusta and i have never been to.Did go to a 24 PLEX at UNIVERSAL Studio’s in Orlando,and i just was not impressed.

From the old school i hardly find this worthy to be on CINEMA TREASURES. This is what the business has become. HEARD them in like cattle and heard them out. NO SHOWMANSHIP. I was so fortunate to get in on the tail days of going to the movies as being an event!

Like three of the other four current locations of the Megaplex Theatres chain, the Megaplex 20 at The District was designed by FFKR Architects of Salt Lake City.
