Litchfield Theatres opened the Hickory Hill in March 10, 1978 as a three screen venue. On March 2, 1979 a fourth screen was added.

The theatre went through another renovation on July 19, 1985 and two more screens were added. Stereo sound was added to the auditoriums at this time. United Artists took over operations at this time. Carmike theatres took over in 1989 and operated the Hickory Hills until it closed in January 2008.

Does not show up on searches for Florence, AL, so it must be still closed. Only one showing up is the 12 plex…

I was in Florence, AL this weekend and snapped these two pictures. From the road, I could ascertain what looked like a quad configuration (sorry I couldn’t get that picture).

The Litchfield Hickory Hills Cinemas, a once-vibrant hub of cinematic entertainment, first illuminated its screens on March 10th, 1978. With an initial trio of screens, it beckoned moviegoers to immerse themselves in the magic of film.

As time unfolded, the cinema expanded its repertoire. Screen 4 joined the ensemble on March 2nd, 1979, enhancing the variety of cinematic experiences available to patrons. The anticipation of new releases and the thrill of shared laughter or tears filled the air.

But the story didn’t end there. On a warm summer day, specifically July 19th, 1985, screens 5 and 6 made their grand debut. The theater complex now boasted six screens, each a canvas for storytelling, adventure, and emotion.

However, the winds of change swept through the theater industry. On December 4th, 1987, the baton passed to United Artists, a new steward for the cinematic legacy. The curtains continued to rise, and the flicker of projectors danced across the screens.

In the mid-1990s, the theater found a new home within the Carmike Cinemas family. The familiar aroma of popcorn, the hushed whispers of anticipation, and the glow of the silver screen remained constants, even as ownership shifted.

Yet, like all tales, this one had its twists. By 2004, the Litchfield Hickory Hills Cinemas transformed into a discount cinema, welcoming budget-conscious movie enthusiasts. The allure of affordable tickets and the promise of cinematic escape drew crowds once more.

Alas, every reel has its final frame. In January 2008, the lights dimmed for the last time. The Litchfield Hickory Hills Cinemas, once a beacon of entertainment, closed its doors. Memories lingered—the echoes of laughter, the gasps of suspense, and the shared moments etched into the fabric of time. (AI rewritten).
