Appears that General Cinema is closing in Southeast? Is this "another one bites the dust"?

General Cinemas did close all their Florida locations. Yesterday it was announced in the Tacoma News Tribune and on local television that General Cinemas is closing today the Lincoln Plaza 8 in Tacoma, Washington. Last week they closed the Gateway Center 8 in Federal Way, Wash.

The Lincoln Plaza was only 6 years old and was a nice, clean theater with good sound (including THX) and projection. They got killed when Regal opened a 15 plex down the street a year ago.

Wouldn't be great if we could implement some kind of freeze on the big guys. Sure, if they want to build a 15 plex in some area where there isn't any theatres in a certain radius okay. But it really sucks putting the little guys out of business for their own inflated gains. I wish people would wake up and boycott or something. The big companies may have the bucks but we,THE PEOPLE, decide weather they make it or not. I see all my movies at a privately owned 3 screen theatre. Not very far away there is a big UA Theatre. I choose the little guy. I think its the right thing to do!

Word has it that GC is closing their Mayfair MAll plex in Milwaukee WI too! Its brand new, luxury auditoriums, etc. My co-worker went there about a month ago and said the auditorium he was in was filthy and had pools of soda running down the floors. I have yet to check the place out. The multiplex is at a swanky upscale shopping mall. Theatre looks beautiful outside.

It's official, GC is closing its 2 Luxury Auditoriums at Mayfair Mall. What's weird is they still are keeping the other 16 screens open. This location is less than 1.5 years old and doing great business, from what the media says.
