Some records I have from General Cinema show they stopped running this on June 10, 1982. Is it possible somebody else took it over?

General Cinema operated this until November 20, 1986.

An internal document from GCC puts the opening date of this theatre as 5/20/1983

The theatre is not demolished.

I don’t think Mann ever operated this one — they operated the Oracle View nearby.

Does anybody have any data to back up that this was a GCC theatre? On some of the documents recently posted to the GCC Memories FB group, this theatre is not listed as one of theirs.

Is the original GCC 6-plex part of the new 14-plex or is the 14-plex an entirely new build?

Scott Neff commented about Yorktown 18 Cinema on May 27, 2014 at 6:40 pm

An old internal document from GCC shows that they operated three Yorktown Cinemas in Lombard, IL.

Yorktown Cinema 6 at 80 Yorktown Shopping Center 7/3/70-4/6/97

Yorktown Cinema at 97 Yorktown Shopping Center 8/13/76-10/31/92 –

Yorktown Cinema 18 at 80 Yorktwon Shopping Center Opening on 11/7/96.

I assume that perhaps the 97 Yorktown address was inside the mall and the 80 was outside?

Does anybody know if the GCC two-sreener was a separate theatre in the mall, or did Regal make use of it when building their six-plex at the mall?

From General Cinema internal documents, they show that they operated a theatre at 5757 Pacific Ave from 12/20/1968 until 03/17/1983.

Scott Neff commented about West Wind Drive-In on May 14, 2014 at 8:53 pm

It hasn’t been renamed officially… it’s still the Las Vegas drive-in — dunno who insisted it become the All Digital Drive-In… it would be the equivalent of naming every Cinemark “Best Seat in Town Cinemas”.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Interchange 30 on May 11, 2014 at 10:16 am

30-plexes have proven too large even for America. Most companies have agreed that anything over 20 is too much, and even then 20 is pushing it. So AMC’s 30-plex building wasn’t a failure only in Canada.

And in many places that AMC put down their 30-plexes, it drove other smaller theatres out of business so it’s not wholly unreasonable for them to think it might’ve done that in this instance. And who knows if it even cost them one cent to build the theatre there, my guess is that developers wanted theatres and may have built the entire thing for them… many chains give it a shot when the deal is sweet enough.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Interchange 30 on May 10, 2014 at 1:00 pm

I’m sure AMC selling off the Canadian theatres had more to do with the Wanda Corporation not wanting to deal with regulations of buying theatres in TWO separate countries. Didn’t they start selling them BEFORE Wanda bought AMC?

Also — how are theatres in Canada built differently than in America? What would make AMC arrogant about building the same theatre there as in the states? Cineplex Odeon did it for years…

This isn’t a renovation — it’s an entirely new building.

Scott Neff commented about Century Riverside 12 on Apr 11, 2014 at 10:42 am

Did this actually open as a Regal? One of those pictures at Benson & Bohl makes it look as though perhaps it did. I remember interviewing at Century’s Home Office in September 2000 and seeing plans for changing the signage, but I was under the impression that it never actually opened as Regal.

Scott Neff commented about Cinemark Brassfield Cinemas 10 on Mar 28, 2014 at 3:33 pm

I believe this was one of Mike Campbell’s original Premiere Cinemas that he sold to Cinemark prior to founding Regal.

Seen this picture all over the internet — glad somebody knew to which theatre it belongs.

Replaced… in 2013…

The Logo you’re thinking of is GCC.

Mr. Mann? Why I don’t think there’s been a Mr. Mann since… hmm… when? The 80’s?

That’s the Valley-Drive In at 340 Mission Ave.

Again — same architects between the UA 150 and this building.

I believe this was previously a General Cinema Theatre.
