Getting pictures may require two trips to this theater since two auditoriums are in a seperate building across from the orginal 8.

For the record they had a former IMAX screen they needed to fill… they went this route.

They are also not charging extra for the upgraded auditorium .. something other chains should follow suit doing.

Does anyone know if the theaters have been demolished or are still there. I visited this location a few years back and it still was there but hidden in the back of the center.

This theater recently has been upgraded to all digital projection. Not too shabby for an almost 20 year old theater that has had a ton of competition open.

it is still listed on the Mariner Mall website. It seems to have been expanded at some point to 7 screens. it seems to be an independent.

It is an amc design. Identical to all mid 90’s megas. This particular unit is a direct clone of Puente 20, sans the large lobby due to Puente being inside a mall.

I took my first trip to the ATS and its amazing. Its so Loews, yet so AMC. It has the Loews spotlight design on the outside design and inside the carpet has the loews spotlights. Three auditoriums (1, 2 and 14) are handicap accesible on the top. Definity you don’t see that much anymore. It is an odd design as its all one long hallway with 12 theaters and 2 in the main corridor. Stairs take you from the lobby to the theaters and a ramp hidden behind a false wall for handicap. The theaters are also numbered counter clockwise which is rare.. Especially for AMC. It has large screens even in the smaller auditoriums. It took a step away from AMC in the auditorium design.

Pictures have been sent to cinematour.

Currently the only new theater that is truly a treasure is the AMC Atlantic Times Square as this is the last Loews theater ever built. Its opening marks the end of a storied and historic chain.

Wasn’t that a Sony design, Chris?

No photos yet. I’m too busy to go over there and nothing I want to see. I live in the city of Monterey Park. Once I do have any they will be sent to Cinematour for archive.

According to the sgvtribune:
theater is the newest in the AMC chain and features four 3D auditoriums and 10 digital-projection auditoriums.

It is all digital projection.

The employees, even though they dont know much about older chains, work in a cinema treasure of its own. The last theater by the largest name in exibition at one point. This 14 plex represents the end of Loews, with its spotlights.

There are some pictures of it here a few months ago:

One picture that I took on page 19 you can see the Loews spotlight logo in the purple paint.

jmarellano commented about AMC Rainbow Promenade 10 on Aug 11, 2010 at 6:06 pm

This theater was acquired by AMC following their purchase of Kerasotes. It is the first AMC to be located in the Las Vegas area, which is dominated by Regal and cinemark. It is a standard 10 plex with no digital screens and I believe no stadium seating.
