Kingsport, TN: Fort Henry Mall Cinema Reopening May 17, 2013

Posted on Monday, April 15th, 2013 by Scott Jentsch

Frank Theatres logoThe theater formerly known as the Marquee Cinemas - Fort Henry Mall 11 in Kingsport, Tennessee will be re-opening May 17, 2013, according to an article published in the Kingsport Times News last week:

The theater was closed on February 4, 2013 by Marquee Cinemas, which is opening a new location in the area later this year.

As was rumored back in February, the new Frank Theatres-run location will have an IMAX screen that the article says will be 85 feet tall. For a traditional IMAX screen, that means the width will be over 120 feet, and if it were the newer/wider screens, the width would be Both of which would be enormous! It's far more likely that the IMAX screen will be 85 feet wide and 45 feet tall, which is still very large by today's standards. It's also possible that the article is mistaken about the screen's height altogether.

There's no information on the Frank Theatres web site about the new theater, except a brief mention in a rotating graphic on their home page. More information will become available as we approach their planned opening date.
