Run by Neighborhood Theatres of Virginia.
Was only in the Marumsco once.. as I remember.. Booth had Simplex XLs (with drive-in mod, picture was projected up to the screen (like a drive-in) not down) with Peerless MagnArc lamps.. huge screen that was slightly higher then the booth, and much higher than the audience.

Kailua will lose its last movie theater at the end of the month when the Keolu Center Cinemas close down.
Hollywood Theaters made the decision last year that it would close the four-screen theater at the Keolu Shopping Center when the lease expired on April 30.
It will be the company’s third theater in Kailua to close. Portland, Ore.-based Hollywood Theaters closed the three-screen Enchanted Lake Cinemas in the Enchanted Lake Shopping Center in 2003, and the
two-screen Kailua Theatres on Hahani Street two years later.
