To where was the projector sold to, Sarah?
The Saginaw News link includes a rendering of the new theater which will be called the Quality 10.
They did the same thing with the State Theatre in Ann Arbor MI. ( http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/2765
The Argus-Press has a more detailed story about the interior work which will give the inside a more modern appearance. The story is at http://www.argus-press.com/news/article_ff5bf678-9d36-11e2-98a9-0019bb2963f4.html
Reconstruction of the theater’s interior is finally underway.
PLEASE DELETE. If you look at the cinema’s page, it is NOT closing, but is instead being taken over to another outfit which is converting it to an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
Goodrich Quality Theatres is replacing the Saginaw 12 with the state of the art Quality 10 this year which will be located next to this cinema which was be torn down after the Quality 10 is completed.
There is another news story about the replacement of the Saginaw 12 with the state-of-the-art Quality 10 from WJRT at http://www.abc12.com/story/21579383/historic-movie-theater-will-soon-be-torn-down
This cinema will be reopened by the Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas chain. ( http://www.mlive.com/news/kalamazoo/index.ssf/2013/02/alamo_drafthouse_taking_over_r.html )
This closed cinema is now boarded up.
Now that this cinema has reopened after extensive renovations, can the overview photo be changed to one of the new photos of the renovated cinema?
The official name of the theater is now simply “Century Aurora” so please make the corresponding changes. News story at http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_22368053/vacant-since-mass-shooting-renewed-aurora-theater-reopen
The 1940 Mickey Rooney film “Young Tom Edison” had its world premiere at the Desmond. A photo of the event as well as what the Huron looks like today can be found at http://www.classcreator.com/Port-Huron-MI-1961/class_custom3.cfm
This cinema was sold to Cinemark. http://www.mlive.com/news/kalamazoo/index.ssf/2012/11/kalamazoos_rave_cityplace_14_n.html
It’s been confirmed by WKZO that Cinemark will NOT take over the soon to close Rave in Kalamazoo. ( http://wkzo.com/news/articles/2012/nov/19/the-rave-may-close-but-something-is-waiting-to-take-its-place/ )
Any word on which Rave Cinemas are on the list? In Michigan, Rave operates cinemas in Ann Arbor, Flint and Kalamazoo, but they earlier announced that their Kalamazoo location will close and be taken over by another operator early next year after renovations.
Cinemark has stated that it will reopen the Century 16 after making renovations. http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnews/ci_21601901/cinemark-will-reopen-century-aurora-16-letter-mayor?IADID=Search-www.denverpost.com-www.denverpost.com
