Does anyone know of any theaters of the design still existing? I would love to get some photos of them. The Tara in Atlanta, GA. is a variation on this theme.
How was the interior reconfigured when the auditorium when from having one screen to five?Does anyone have any interior shots of the theater?
Apparently at least one of the original auditoria still remains relatively intact as a conference/screening room.
The last time I patronized this cinema, which was in 2011, it had conventional, not stadium, seating. The venue is clean, some of the screens are of good size, but over all it is just a bland 90s multiplex.
It is looking great and am appreciative of all of the money and effort put forth in restoring it!
To be clear, nothing of the original interior remains in place. The theater was completely gutted, top to bottom. The four conventional auditoriums on the second level are architecturally on par with just about every mall multiplex designed between the late 1970s and early 1980s. It is a rather basic venue at best and a real shame nothing could have been done to keep the place intact. Still, it does have a nice exterior.
The theatre had a seating capacity of around 1200. The two auditoriums were split in half in 1986 to make it a four screen complex. The architect was Victor Smolen.
The Mercado was the work of the architectural firm of MacDonald & Englhart with a seating capacity of 820.
There are currently only two auditoriums in operation. Is the complex being retrofitted for stadium seating?
This was the standard design of just about every eightplex AMC built during the 1980s. from The Northlake 8 in Tucker, GA was identical to the Fashion Village.
The Edna has a remarkable resemblance to the Alabama Theater in Houston, TX. By chance, does anyone have any interior shots of the Edna or know who the architect was?
This cinema was initially part of the Jerry Lewis Cinema chain and opened in 1972.
This cinema has re-opened under the banner of the Denver Film Society

The Henry no longer exist.
AKA Camelot 1 & 2
This cinema opened sometime during the mid to late 1970s. The auditoriums are back to back both sharing the same projection booth and both seating around 240 each. Very large screens and excellect sight lines throughout.
As of January 2012 this property was vacant and up for sale.
This is also listed as the Village Theatre
Is this what is now called the new Warner Brothers Theatre?
check the top floor of the main branch of the fulton county library. you will have to look around a bit but there is a wealth of material there literally rotting away.
The Holiday is a prime example of circa late 1960s cinema architecture and has most of its original features still intact most notably the main auditorium which has not be divided up into several small screening rooms as was the fate of most cinemas of that era. For anyone who was a kid during this period it is like taking a step back in time. Both auditoriums feature screens larger than those used for IMAX presentations in most multiplexes. The cinema is a family run operation. It is very clean, affordable and unique.
A plan to expand to use the existing lobby space as a pawn shop was nixed by the Las Vegas planning commission on January 10, 2012.
This is a beautiful and architecturally significant building but with only two screens it does represent a challenge on how to keep it running as a cinema. Since Orlando does not have dedicated venue for independent and foreign films the Celebration could possibly fill this void.
