VIP Shadowood 16

While eightplexes were the norm for new builds at the time, Wometco upped the ante with 12 screens at Shadowood Square which opened on November 20, 1987. Along with mainstream first-run fare, the Shadowood 12 made an early commitment to alternative/international releases, which continues to this day. When first opened, each auditorium was not only numbered but named after one of Wometco’s past theatres. Two larger 200-seat auditoriums included 70MM capabilities.

Cobb Theatres inherited the Shadowood 12 after acquiring Wometco’s remaining facilities in 1994, constructing four more small screens before Regal took ownership. It was closed on February 12, 2023. It was reopened by VIP Cinemas on March 15, 2024.

The building seems very large for a total seat count of 1004.

The new seats cut down seating tremendously; they’re recliners.
