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.

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 commented about Singing River Cinema 5-9 on Sep 30, 2011 at 7:27 pm

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.

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 24, 2011 at 8:16 pm

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.

It’s being used for live shows as well as banquets.

Scott Neff commented about Cinemark Hollywood USA Movies 15 on Sep 16, 2011 at 2:26 am

They’re all over every Cinemark of a certain era, probably starting with the Hollywood concept.

Well likely their first ground up build of the multiplex era…?

An article in the San Dimas Press from March 27, 1969 says that the theatre would be opening April 2, 1969.

Scott Neff commented about CineLux Tennant Station Stadium 11 on Aug 22, 2011 at 7:52 pm

The theatre was originally a 3-screen theatre, operated by West Side Valley Theatres. It was at some point turned into a 6-plex and operated by Cinemacal Enterprises which closed the theatre in August of 2003.

Cinelux Theatres later remodelled the theatre into an 8-screen theatre with stadium seating, later adding three screens for the current total of eleven.

Where were UA’s offices before they were at the Greenwood Plaza?

Twin = more rent. Two screens just means you have more time to play your worst two movies. Cut your losses.

Scott Neff commented about Century Park 12 on Aug 19, 2011 at 2:49 pm

At one point this was the busiest Century Theatre, even busier than the Mountain View 10/16.

To save on taxes the projection booth consisted of 10 huts on the roof, connected by catwalks. Was absolutely bizarre.

Architect was Vincent Raney

All that will be left is to make a list which theatres are still open and who is running them. The last trace of the mighty empire.

Best I can tell Essaness/Excellence took over in June of 1988.

Who owned this theatre? The design looks a little familiar.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Loews Broadway 4 on Aug 3, 2011 at 8:52 pm

I think I posted it on the Santa Monica 7’s page… but why do city councils think a reduction in seats will mean a reduction in traffic? All those old tired regulations about X parking spaces per seat make no sense in a day where people are coming to see a convenient showtime. If anything it’s the number of screens that dictates traffic.

With the AMC 7 and the Criterion 6 closing, the new 12-plex would be one less screen and one less convenient showtime that would get people into their cars and into a parking space.

The Drive-Ins have Technalight and the Solano in Concord has one digital screen.

Syufy MANAGES the Domes. Decisions about their maintenance and upkeep don’t necessarily come from California if you catch my drift.

The managers there at the location care very much about their theatres but there’s only so much you can do when you’re not quite a Cinemark and not quite a Century.
