Such passionate descriptions.
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.
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.
According to this theatre from American Classic images
This was also at one time the Valley 4-5-6.
I’d rather have an aerial vs no photo at all.
Checking through Google Earth addresses it appears that the shopping center this was may have been demolished. Was this theatre on the east or west side of N. Azusa?
I believe this theatre was in Rohnert Park, CA – and the it is entirely demolished now.
This is not being operated by Rennaisance Rialto. Rennaisance operates the Grand Lake and formerly the Park, Orinda and Oaks. Rialto Cinemas is a completely different guy.
Out west we use Vistar/VSA or Sysco. Check them out.
Still on AMCs website.
The original West Mall theatre was located elsewhere in the mall. The current seven screens is an entirely different theatre than the original single.
American Classic Images has aphoto of the Arlington after the 60’s remodel.
American Classic Images shows this picture of this Arlington Theatre as Arlington Heights, IL. I see no reference to another theatre in Arlington Heights, IL either here or on Cinematour.
The Boulevard has now expanded to have 15-screens.
Does anybody know if Cinemark ever operated this place?
Starplex now lists this theatre as the Stadium 12.
I’d like to say that perhaps if people STOPPED sneaking food in that perhaps prices would come down, however at this point I’m sure the big chains would just see it as increased profit and think they had done something right and wouldn’t change a thing.
However — if perhaps people stopped sneaking in food the prices wouldn’t go up too much more.
This was opened as the Jerry Lewis Twin Cinema.
Regal Entertainment — meet Chicago. Chicago, meet Regal Entertainment. Although I bet Cinemark has an interest in strengthening their presence in Chicago…
Does the theatre still stand?
I want to say that I have early newspaper history I did a LOONG time ago that had this theatre originally as a Mann I-II-III… I need to find that.
I believe the IMC6 was the name of a previous 6 screen theatre the company ran. I’ve seen it happen a few times with the Bollywood Theatres where they change venues but keep the same name because it became so identified with the original theatre. Perhaps it’s a way of saying “Hey – it’s still us – not some other people – you can trust us!”.
The NAZ8 (at the old GCC Fremont Hub 8) kept their name NAZ8 even when they moved to an old Super Saver 7 down the road in Fremont, CA. I think the IMC6 comes from an old UA house in Lakewood, CA.
So is AMC still operating this theatre?
This link to this 1991 NY Times article is the most in depth I’ve read about the shootings. (apologies if it’s linked above and I missed it) I enjoy that it seems to convey that National Amusements put the metal detectors in out of public pressure than of their own choice. A lot of times I hear people talking about the metal detectors they make it seem like it was a choice when in fact it sounds as though it was necessary to allay the fears after the shooting.
When will the public understand that snack bar is the only way theatre makes money and that the majority of the $9-15 ticket goes to the distributor?
