Those pictures made me cringe. I recognize theater 1 and the hallway leading from the stairs, the area where the old second stand used to be, and I think one is the lobby hall over by theaters 5-6-7 and that area where the booth came around the tall ceiling. I want to go just check out the store to see how much of the cinema still remains..
Status should be updated to closed.
Also there is an article on how the theater is in the process of being gutted. TOBY KEITHS restaurant chain is opening a location in 30,000 sq feet of the building.
Due to declining business, AMC has apparently closed one wing of the the theater and currently running it as a 17 plex. No plans on what they plan to do with the closed wing. This theater has suffered attendance decline since AMC opened their Glendora 12 a few miles away.
From the looks of it, Pacific is still running it for the rest of the week. Regency takes over Friday.
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.
ken its great what you do. I enjoyed meeting you in Los Angeles a few years back and can’t wait for you to come back here. Thanks fir all you do.
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.
