Scott Neff commented about Stadium 8 Drive-In on Jul 18, 2014 at 1:20 am

I know Syufy built most the drive-ins the same, but the building here looks I-DENT-I-CAL to the Sacramento 6. The Capitol 6 in San Jose doesn’t look as big as either Sac or Stadium.

Scott Neff commented about Glynn Place Stadium Cinemas 11 on Jul 15, 2014 at 8:29 pm

From the photos I’ve seen it looks like they used “UA the Movies” signage. Was this originally a UA theatre?

Syufy/Century operated it for a bit after Mann pulled out.

That’s right — was never been — I talk good.

Scott Neff commented about Cinemark Tinseltown USA Cinema 14 on Jul 15, 2014 at 8:02 pm

Judging by other photos I’ve seen of this — it was never been Carmike. Looks like a fresh Cinemark build.

Weren’t we just reading a deluge of articles last month saying ticket sales were UP?? The media loves to exaggerate the rollercoaster that is US box office.

I’m not one to usually say this about multi-plexes, but this one ACTUALLY looks like a Kohl’s if you take the marquee down.

Scott Neff commented about Redeveloping Woodland's State Theatre on Jul 3, 2014 at 9:59 pm

My understanding is that the single screen WOULD be kept intact and a complex built next door.

Scott Neff commented about Baytown Premiere Cinema 11 on Jun 19, 2014 at 3:06 am

Was this theatre an entirely new build or did it make use of one of the existing cinemas?

Scott Neff commented about Ingram Mall 6 on Jun 19, 2014 at 2:58 am

Was this theatre the one that was built by General Cinema in 1981? Or perhaps the Ingram Square 8 was built off the GCC?

Scott Neff commented about Westgate Cinema I & II on Jun 19, 2014 at 12:16 am

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

Scott Neff commented about Great Western Cinema on Jun 17, 2014 at 2:49 am

General Cinema operated this until November 20, 1986.

Scott Neff commented about GCC Citadel Mall Cinemas on Jun 16, 2014 at 11:57 pm

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

The theatre is not demolished.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Oracle 4 on Jun 14, 2014 at 12:16 am

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

Scott Neff commented about Overlake Cinema I & II on Jun 3, 2014 at 2:10 am

The address was 14505 NE 20th St

Scott Neff commented about Herndon Dulles Twin on Jun 3, 2014 at 1:59 am

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.

Scott Neff commented about Mid Rivers 14 Cine' on Jun 3, 2014 at 12:53 am

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 28, 2014 at 2:40 am

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?

Scott Neff commented about Southpark Mall Cinemas on May 23, 2014 at 8:15 am

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?

Scott Neff
Scott Neff commented about Cinema I & II on May 22, 2014 at 8:04 am

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 15, 2014 at 4:53 am

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 6:16 pm

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 9:00 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.
