Did Cobb ever operate this theatre?
It was the extensive gameroom/family fun center was actually called “FunScape”. Regal attempted to make this concept work at four other locations in the US.
Try as hard as they did to get rid of this, AMC has it back again after the purchase of Carmike. :)
This theatre is now branded as one of Carmike’s BigD theatres and operated as the 17th screen of the nearby Broadway Cinemas.
So Kerasotes got this from Goodrich not from Carmike? Any idea when Goodrich got it from Carmike then?
I’m thinking this picture is not of the Fox Theatre that was built/opened in 1970.
You’d have to think that if Regal pulled out, a company like Regency Theatres would go in.
Who opened this originally?
I have information that suggests this theatre closed in September of 2016. Does anybody have anything that suggests it actually closed January 2017?
When I was updating all the Carmikes to be AMCs on Cinematour I noticed that this was not part of the list on AMC’s website, so I think this closed before December 2016.
This always puzzled me too. While I’ve never been inside either theatre here, I think it’s strange that the other theatre is the more modern one (didn’t somebody else build it?) and that this one that National built is the less modern. You’d think they would have done something to fix that if they could.
I’m not positive if this is still the case, but my understanding is that BCG would offer loans to theatre operators in exchange for a cut of their concessions profits until the loan was repaid. If this is the case, then it is in the interest of both companies to promote the theatre. The more money Entertainment Cinemas makes, the quicker their loan is repaid.
It’s strange because I have information that suggests the day that this theatre opened Regal acquired a string of theatres from UA (Knoxville Center 10, Capri Cinema 4, Northgate Crossing, Jackson Cinema 10, Southbrook Cinema 7). They didn’t get the 9-plex until almost a year and a half later.
This building appears to have been built by Carmike. Does anybody know if Carmike operated it before Regal acquired it or did Regal do some fancy dealing to get it before it opened?
Previous operators included Martin Theatres and Regal Cinemas.
Did UA ever operate this theatre, or the 9-plex inside the mall?
An article in the August 1990 issue of Boxoffice stated that Litchfield opened this sixplex in May of 1990.
Interesting that these theatres were GCC/Mann. A joint venture I assume. Was this the Mann Theatres of California or Mann Theatres of Minnesota?
If you zoom in the upper right corner of the grand opening ad, it says GCC Mann.
I believe that the entire city is “Santa Clarita” which consists of the four previously unincorporated areas of Valencia, Canyon Country, Newhall, and Saugus. This area has always been confusing as far as city/theatre names.
You really shouldn’t rely on showtimes from any source other than the theatre’s own website. Newspapers and other free sources have a knack for being inaccurate with showtimes.
Cinebarre was a joint venture between Regal Entertainment and one of the original founders of Alamo Drafthouse. Late last year Regal announced in their internal newsletter that it was no longer a joint venture and Cinebarre is now wholly owned by REG.
This theatre did not reopen for the 2016 season. Venturing a guess that it is closed as other Google searches returned articles about the property being for sale.
Interesting development. I always liked the weird over-screening between the Cinemark and Cineplex Odeon/AMC there.
You’re thinking of the Cinedome Las Vegas. Henderson opened as 12-plex in 1993 as stated above.
This may be one of the best examples of what I love about chain theatres from the 80’s.
This theatre was just renovated to include recliner seating in all theatres, one screen retrofit to be stadium seating, as well as a two screen stadium seating addition. Total screens now equal nine.
