In case you didn’t know, this weekend’s wildfires could pose a serious threat to that area’s movie theaters. If you have a report of a theater that was damaged by those fires, please comment.

I live in downtown San Diego, actually.

To my knowledge, no theaters in San Diego have been damaged. Most, including the Balboa, California, Spreckels, North Park, and Copley Symphony Hall, are located miles from the fire.

that’s good news. At least most of the evacuees went to a football/baseball stadium rather than the city’s cinema treasures. This is not as severe as what happened during Katrina, when a lot of old movie theaters in New Orleans were hit hard by the storms. In my area, the only theater that was hit hard by weather of this type was the floods that damaged a movie theater in Bound Brook, and that theater is still being renovated.

Perhaps the theater closest to a fire was Hollywood Theaters' Malibu Cinemas.
