My plan was to pay for Ghost Dad, the Bill Cosby comedy which I had already seen, put up with that for a half hour since it started 30 minutes before Die Hard 2 began and then sneak in without being seen and watch the movie I wanted to see in the first place. I remember a fight broke out during a screening of Priest I know people who think like that today. The Centre Mall Cinemas are no more. And there are many other examples too numerous to mention here. An usher came down and escorted the entire row out of the building. In , they had routinely sold out showings of Dances With Wolves which played from November that year to either the spring or summer of
Then, they added 6 more theatres in the spring of , which were, naturally, much smaller. Email required Address never made public. My parents took me to see The Jazz Singer there in It is a lifelong love affair. Your memory of movies seen at the Centre is impressive. I always felt their admission prices were way too high for a teenager, even when they briefly offered a 6 dollar youth rate, and so after seeing one film, the one I paid for, I would see something else. This is a tribute to a multiplex. They never came here.

I was hoping to do this until he got frustrated but the guy cimema my limeriidge got fed up and told me to face the music.
But early on in the movie, I was freaked. The usher quickly came down the aisle and told us to wait by the cinfma down at the left hand corner of theatre 7. And as a result, the number of titles coming into Hamilton theatres were dropping. Why did it close down? Back then, I rented tapes occasionally and went to the theatre, with some exceptions, every week, mostly alone, sometimes with pals.
Sometimes I think the closing of places like this has hurried the division I sometimes feel in modern day Hamilton. It is a lifelong love affair. I remember the time the fire alarm went off during an afternoon screening of The Super During my teen years I screened more movies here than in any other cinema. Just as they were about to land some of the planes at Dulles Airport, after John McClane wiped out limeriddge terrorists, the usher returned and I left the theatre and went on home.
He came in the wrong side.

On June 20, at 9: I loved cinemz movie. For much of my life, I have watched movies. Movies that would play on Odeon screens could also be played on Famous Players screens at the same time.

My parents took me to see The Jazz Singer there in Tthe was allergic to it and of course, was jealous of anyone who could digest that crap.
I only kept it in my shoe when I wore shorts with no pockets or I was planning to see a different movie. When I went around to the front entrance, I dug my crumbled ticket out of my shoe, because my psychedelic fishbone shorts had no pockets showed it to the usher and was back inside.
Sadly, it was never published.
Theatre closings are becoming freakishly common here. And I could see late shows and run home in a flash. I noticed some of the screens in the smaller theatres were showing their mzll. But this was rare. I know people who think like that today. As far as Hamilton is concerned, without the Broadway Cinema, a downtown repertory theatre which closed in the summer ofthere is no independent cinema around to exhibit the smaller films that the big chains refuse to exhibit locally. Things were going so well for that place.
The Centre Mall was once very good at getting some of the important, smaller films like Hearts Of Darkness: On a hot day, I could get cool there. By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use.
Cinema 1 – Upper Wentworth St, Hamilton, ON
On November 27, at 1: Much of my teenage life was spent in that place. Today, I screen most movies on DVD. The usher came down and told one of the patrons they had a phone call.
Most people left for good. When I went to see Hannibal on a cold Saturday afternoon in Februarythere were maybe 50 to 70 people there.
In the end the fire was minor at best. And the rest of The Super was no better than the earlier scenes. Sometime in orthe rules changed. During the opening sequence where Sylvester Stallone tries to rescue a woman mountain climber, the sound mysteriously disappeared and the lights came on.
They have a much bigger selection than your local video store. Also, there was this unwritten policy that said that if you were 14 you had to pay adult admission which for a while was 7.
