Status should be now closed. Its last day of business was yesterday.
I read that the closure will happen in January.
A new three story county office building is going to be constructed on the site with an opening in 2012 according to the SGV Tribune.
Its official: This theater will close next year:
I wonder what condition the theater was in when the reacquired it.
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.
Also seat counts need to be updated above.
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.
Its now run by Marcus.
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.
After 19 years of playing first run movies, the Edwards Atlantic Palace has been demoted to a discount house. It now shows all features any show for $3.
The closing date has been pushed back to the end of the year from whht has been told.
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.
Wonder if Carmike has any other plans for California.. Specifically Mann Theater locations
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.
Theater has a twitter: @ultrastargw14
Opening weekend features:
Charlie St. Cloud
Into the Fire
Step Up 3D
The Kids Are All Right
The Last Exorcism
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.
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.
This theater has slowly been transformed into a second run house with one or two first run films. Driving by all the time there is never anyone at the box office, a sad end to what used to be the prime theater in the west San Gabriel Valley. Sad to think it may not hit its 20th anniversary.
It has been rumored that this theater will close along with the Edwards West Covina 18 after the summer.
The Levitz / Toys R Us was not torn down. It is the same building. The front of the building is the same as the Toys R Us when it was remodeled prior to closing.
Exterior photos are now on Cinematour. I took them two days ago on my way to San Diego. An interior lobby photo is on the Big Cinemas website. Its your typical Krikorian interior for their new theaters.
