Owner William E. Baldridge of this place should be put in jail!!! instead of putting the money where it was suppose to go he blew it. maybe next time investors will give the owner a drug test to make sure their investment is not disapearing with the use of drugs and cockyness.

Bill Baldridge asked me to invest with him and he basically stold over $100,000 dollars. Said he would pay me back with interest. I never saw my money again. He took my life savings. I am having to spend money on attornies trying to get him to pay me back. I have no retirement because of my trusting him and he saying he would treat me like his own mother. Poor mother. He continues to avoid being responsible or a man with any integrity. He should go to jail.

I'd like to make a prediction. This guy will not serve one day. He will not loose his Infinity and Jaguar. He will not loose his home. Why? Because he will receive the best justice money can buy, even if that money is ill gotten.

If you steal from one person, or shop lift, you may go to jail. Steal from many, under the veil of bad business judgement, and you can continue to live the lifestyle to which you are accustomed. Of course, you'll need some high dollar attorneys on your side. And why can't the money needed to pay the legal bills pay some of the creditors? Like I said, it's the best justice money can buy. I'm sure there will be many civil suits. But I'll bet this carbuncle will never see the inside of a criminal courtroom.

Not so fast, ambrose. He is bankrupt now. Broke and financially ruined, he cannot afford any high-dollar lawyers. Not at all. As a former employee of this man, I can say first hand he is like a small-potatoes version of Enron. He basically did what the mafia would do with their business if it fails, gut it from the inside out until it's dead. He just isn't as smart as the mafia, because he won't get away with it. This miserable "human being" once came up to speak to me, and I saw blood and white powder running down his nose. It was all I could do to keep from vomiting.

Mr. Broke is forgettable unfortunately. I'm sorry to those who lost money with him. Any prospects of a new owner? Selfishly, I just want someone smart enough and nice enough to come along, reopen and offer to honor any previously purchased tickets/gift cards/discounts.
What's the buzz?

I really dont care about this dude but more than anything I want my Colleyville IMAX!!!

Does anyone have any new information on what exact day is this theater going to reopen besides mid August?

Also I am hoping to see the new Batman movie on the Imax at this location and there isnt much new releases for August at the Imax theaters.

Does anyone know if the new Batman movie will be the reopen feature once it reopens in August?

I would really like to wait and see Batman at this Imax location otherwise guess I will have to see it at Cinemark Web Chappel Imax.

Any info would be greatly appreciated including a new theater phone # for info.

Thanks.

Great News for Colleyville IMAX fans like myself!!! New website www.colleyvillecinema.com
They are also taking apps for employment at the website.
Here is a email response I got from one of the new partners July 24th.
RM,
I am one of the partners re-opening the Colleyville Cinema Grille.
We will open on August 15 with The Dark Knight on IMAX.
The theatre phone line is eight one seven,six five six 4600 and the website is www.ColleyvilleCinema.com .
Both are under construction at the moment, so they are not exactly refined yet. Either of these venues are great ways to keep informed.
Also, we’ll be at the theatre Mon-Fri until we open, so come by if you’d like.

This guy is a major crook. I use to work for him. I discovered he was making deductions from his employees paychecks for health insurance but he wasn't making the premium payments. All the employees thought they had health insurance but they didn't. That's when I left, in a hurry. He does not pay his contractors either. I saw many contractors go belly up because he refused to pay them after the job was done. I believe in karma and Baldridge drips with bad karma. What goes around comes around dude!

He's not a human being, he's a liar, a cheat, a deceiver, a thief, cheated on his pregant wife with his secretary, gambles away the money he owes his contractors and now a drug abuser. He is mean, vicious, bad tempered, controlling, violent tendancies, and totally untrustworthy. I use to work for him so I know first hand how underhanded this guy is.

JUST SOLD HIS HOUSE ON LOVINGTON FOR $300,000- WISH THE IRS AND ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE HE CHEATED WOULD GO AFTER HIM. He is now living in the Park Cities driving a new BMW and a truck.

This guy is major trouble - stay away from him. Major drug user that spent time at the former Esparanza sober living house Dallas and was basically kicked out because he could not follow the rules. He left owing them money. This human waste is the poster child for sociopath. He owes everybody money including his former M I L. Drunk driving arrest, theft of 401k funds, fraud, owes child support and is a fat fat slob. He owes the IRS millions and still is left to do business? It makes no sense. Rumor has it that a major market magazine is going to do a cover piece on this POS. Be careful, as he brags that he carries a 9mm at all times. Tell everyone you know to stay away from anything to do with William E. "Bill" Baldridge, Web Properties and Hurricane Properties.
