Rumor has it that Edwards “stole” this five screen complex from Mann Theatres just before it officially opened on February 8, 1980. Edwards added Dolby Stereo to all 5 screens in the 1990’s. The total seating capacity was 1,200-seats.
Todd Blood, of Captain Blood’s Village Theatre fame, took over the lease in 2001 after Edwards shuttered it as part of their bankruptcy. Todd Blood added digital sound in all but one screen, and the lobby got a make-over. All five screens remained at a fixed 2:1 aspect ratio, which crops movies (1.85:1 is overly cropped top and bottom, and 2.35:1 is severely cropped on the left and right.
In the Spring of 2005, Captain Blood lost the lease. Starplex Cinemas renovated the theatre and operated it as a second run theatre. It was taken over by AMC in January 2016. It was closed for renovations in late-July 2022 and reopened on September 9, 2022. The total seating capacity has been reduced to 354-seats. One screen has 80-seats, there are 3 screens each with 70-seats and the fifth screen has 64-seats.
