Alameda is an Island in the San Francisco Bay.

The theatre is built on the site of the Moffet Drive-In which explains its isolation. I went there a few years ago on the weekend and it was still fairly crowded.

In looking at the 1980 aerial view it appears you may be correct. Have never seen ads for it in any old newspapers though. Quite curious.

Yeah — seems odd that the entrance was not included.

Nice that they replaced the seats in recent years. I expected to see some really old low back Irwins.

While I’m usually a fan of any photo vs. none, the picture that is currently attached to this entry (the side of the building?) really doesn’t do much for me… was the front of the building unavailable?

It should be noted that the Cineplex that operated this theatre is not the same as the Cineplex of Cineplex Odeon/Loews Cineplex. This company appears to have operated only in Texas and built a number of similar 6-8 plexes in and around Houston and Dallas.

So many were operated by Cineplex then Cinemark that I wonder if Cineplex was an earlier incarnation of Cinemark.

Big places like this aren’t going to go away. People need to start finding the beauty in what theatres have become.

Though I agree — most theatre patrons nowadays are idiots. Though napalm is extreme.

Scott Neff commented about AMC The Regency 20 on Nov 20, 2011 at 6:59 am

If you could find the ORIGINAL grand opening ad, that would be nice. This theatre did not open as a 20-plex in 1986.

I assume that it opened as an 8 plex similar to the Seminole, Tri-City and other AMC 8’s in the surrounding area.

If you look at the second picture in the Cinematour link, the “Guest Services” window is the original box office and entrance, complete with the AMC door panels.

It’s the benefit of living in/near a major metropolitan area. Also — having to travel and join others who’ve gone to great lengths to see the film adds to the enjoyment.

The theatre opened with Volcano on April 25, 1997.

Scott Neff commented about Cinemark Reno Summit Sierra on Nov 11, 2011 at 7:49 pm

This was the first Century Theatre that Cinemark completed after their purchase of Century in 2006. For this reason the interior is an interesting hybrid between the Century and Cinemark designs at the time.

Scott Neff commented about Century Park Lane 16 on Nov 11, 2011 at 7:47 pm

Opened during Century’s big expansion push in 1996, this theatre’s layout and color scheme is nearly identical to the Century 16’s in Anchorage, AK; Aurora, CO; Salt Lake City, UT and Portland, OR.

Scott Neff commented about Century Riverside 12 on Nov 11, 2011 at 7:45 pm

Theatre project was started and nearly completed by Regal Cinemas. Before opening the project was taken over by Century Theatres. Most every aspect of the interior is a Regal Cinema; seats, carpets, curtains, snack bar etc.

The Regal design include an exterior box office that was accessible through the snack bar and kitchen. While the box office was completed it was never used; Century built an interior box office instead.

It appears that Google Earth shows this location is demolished.

Scott Neff commented about Marin Theatre on Nov 7, 2011 at 9:12 pm

Theatre is actually a 3-screen.

This theatre is being run by TouchStar Cinemas as a part discount and part first run theatre.

Scott Neff commented about Carmike Cinema 6 on Nov 2, 2011 at 3:50 am

Ummm — Just about every Century Theatre built has a self serve snack bar.

At any rate — the theatre closed in August of 2011.

The theatre is currently undergoing new construction of a sixth theatre.

Scott Neff commented about Marina Theatre on Oct 19, 2011 at 10:24 pm

I believe it is also a single screen — not a twin.

Does anybody have more details as to where specifically this theatre was located?

Scott Neff
Scott Neff commented about Singing River Cinema 5-9 on Oct 1, 2011 at 12:27 am

The 5-9 would be the theatre inside the mall, which to my understanding is still operating. The 1-4 would be the building referred to above.

Scott Neff commented about Green Acres Cinemas on Sep 25, 2011 at 2:01 am

Having never gone inside, I didn’t realize it was all Cineplex Odeon-ey still. I would have assumed National would have Showcased it up a bit.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Starplex Forney 12 on Sep 25, 2011 at 1:16 am

Starplex has close ties to Cinemark (I think it’s Lee Roy Mitchell’s brother?). It’s not cooincidence that many Starplex built theatres are extremely similar to a Cinemark theatre of the same era.
