CSWalczak commented about Digital projectors for sale for $35K! on Nov 20, 2012 at 6:05 pm

I hope these end up in a small, independent theater that is struggling to survive in the face of the need to convert to digital instead of being acquired by one of the big chains for use in one of their smaller screening rooms.

CSWalczak commented about Cinemark signs deal to buy Rave Cinemas on Nov 20, 2012 at 5:41 pm

My take on Cinemark is that they have evolved; their theaters built in the early 1990’s (many of them discount multiplexes with garish interiors – for example was the Willoughby Hills 10 in Ohio had headache-inducing chartreuse walls with checkerboard tile floors with video games all over the place) had then-common shoebox auditoria often with mono sound and undistinguished projection.

But by the beginning of the new century, and especially after the company became a major player and it acquired the Century and CineArts brands, their theaters became far more luxurious and comparable to any of the best of the recently-built megaplexes. My most recent visit to a Cinemark-owned theater was at their Century 9 in San Francisco and it was a first-class experience.

It looks like Fort Sill has had three theaters over the years; already listed here on CT are the Liberty Theater which would appear to pre-date this theater and the current Sheridan Theater.

CSWalczak commented about Majestic Theatre on Nov 19, 2012 at 12:11 am

I too love the Majestic, but it is tied in my affections with the equally incredible Aztec; I worry even more about the Aztec’s long term prospects because all they have come up with since its restoration in terms of programming has been crappy touristy-oriented stuff.
