Scott Neff commented about City Center Theatres on Apr 21, 2010 at 10:58 pm

February 6, 1978 issue of Boxoffice has an article about the location installing Christie AW3’s for their March 25, 1977 opening of Star Wars. Article says the theatre was seven years old at the time.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Santa Monica 7 on Apr 14, 2010 at 10:06 pm

Sadly I think it has something to do with antiquated laws/regulations concerning parking:seat ratios. Back in the days of singles and twins it was fairly predictable to say a city needs X spaces to accomodate Y seats. Now this predictability is gone since theatres have learned to minimize downtime and ensure a constant steady stream of customers. It’s just my guess but I think the city is probably bound to operate under the outdated regulations and the theatres take advantage of that.

At least I hope so because if politicians can’t understand that twice as many choices might draw twice as many customers then we truly do elect some strange individuals.

I love that city councils think that keeping the number of seats the same means the same amount of traffic… don’t they understand that half those seats are empty anyway? If they spread the same seats out over 14 screens there will be TWICE the traffic regardless.

I enjoy that the building owner wants the tennant to make a capital investment in their property. In my experience in the theatre business that’s not usually how it works. If the landlord wants AMC to stay, he needs to make a capital investment.

Scott Neff commented about Sundance Kabuki on Apr 5, 2010 at 3:59 am

The photo Chuck posted on 5/22/09 is NOT the Sundance Kabuki. The Kabuki was originally built by AMC and looks very much like a multiplex.

Scott Neff commented about Pollock Theater needs 35mm projectors on Mar 26, 2010 at 5:58 pm

If you haven’t already, try contacting Metropolitan Theatres. If they’re doing any sort of switch to digital any time soon they may have some old projectors they’d like to get rid of. Also you never know if they have any old projectors in storage from locations that they closed down in the SB area.

Scott Neff commented about Century 8 Oakland on Mar 24, 2010 at 9:30 pm

This was actually an 8-plex when it closed and was called simply Century 8 Oakland. Century 21 & 22 should be an AKA.

The Newpark 20 has been on the books for years.

Scott Neff commented about Cinedome 8 on Mar 24, 2010 at 7:34 pm

The domes at the Cinedome are much smaller than the domes in San Jose. Also according to their website Cinemark still plans on building a theatre in Napa to replace the Cinedome.

Scott Neff commented about Montclair Cinemas on Mar 24, 2010 at 6:23 am

So was this technically two separate theatres? (ie. separate entrances/lobbies?)

Can anybody explain these theatres in greater detail? Where around the mall were the two complexes?

Google street view shows that this theatre has been demolished.

We’ll be deleting the listing at Cinematour this evening to help end the confusion. :o)

The theatre referenced in the article is Cinemark’s Cinema 6 at 291 Highway 65 N. Carmike’s website shows that the Faulkner 6 is still open.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Fork & Screen on Mar 18, 2010 at 8:17 pm

I don’t know where the information came from originally. We have it listed at that addres over at Cinematour as well… perhaps a bad listing somewhere back in the day?

Such passionate descriptions.

Scott Neff commented about Cinedome 8 Fremont on Mar 11, 2010 at 7:35 am

The 4th dome was split in half to make the eighth theatre. The domes at these locations were not as big as the free standing ones in San Jose, Sacramento and Pleasant Hill.

Scott Neff commented about Valley Theatre on Mar 11, 2010 at 6:29 am

Does anybody know if this theatre is standing or if it’s been demolished? Based on the name change of the street metioned on the El Monte’s page, this theatre would have been six blocks west of the El Monte.

I’d rather have an aerial vs no photo at all.
