Walterboro, SC: Ireland Creek Cinemas Opening May 5, 2017

Posted on Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017 4:46 PM

The Ireland Creek Cinemas in Walterboro, South Carolina is set to open on Friday, May 5, 2017.

According to a recent article published in The Press and Standard, owner Rob McHone plans to open two of the theater's four screens initially:

Rob McHone faces a busy week as he strives to see the Ireland Creek Cinemas come to life this Friday.

Before the movie screens light up on Friday night, McHone has a myriad of things drawing his attention, including the final painting of the renovated lobby and hiring the staff.

McHone said the theater building in the Ireland Creek Shopping Center has four existing auditoriums for movie viewing. He will only open two initially. “The other two are not the way that I want them. I’ll have them come on line as soon as they get finished.”


His primary focus has been improving “everything that has to do with the movie: we have new projectors, new sound systems, new screens, new servers.

The newly renovated auditoriums now employ 5.1 stereo, with the capability to providing 7.1 stereo. The new systems, he said, “offers better quality of sound. If a plane (is flying across the screen), the sound moves with it.”

About the only thing McHone hasn’t changed in the movie auditoriums are the seats. He looked at replacing them with newer seats but found that the new ones didn’t match the comfort level of the ones already in place. “The seats that are in there are pretty darn comfortable. I like those seats.”

McHone said the renovation of the lobby areas is “a work in progress. The wallpaper is gone and the walls have been primed for new paint. By Friday, he said, the walls will be painted and the carpet cleaned.

The theater was formerly the Ivanhoe Cinema Four, which closed in July 2014. The theater's reopening is probably welcome news to moviegoers in the Walterboro area, as the next closest theaters are the Highway 21 Drive-In in Beaufort and the Cinemark Movies 8 in Summerville. Both are 30 miles away from the Ireland Creek Cinemas.

We're hoping to get showtimes soon, so keep an eye on the Showtimes page for the Ireland Creek Cinemas for updates! Until then, the following schedule was posted on the theater's Facebook page:
