In January 2011,Regal will sign a deal to take over the theatre.

It will lose six of the twenty screens to make way for other uses such as restaurants,etc.

It’s actually called CASE 39,not 49. I hope they get LET ME IN.

Theatre 9,which seemed to be the largest of the 20 auds,had wheelchair seating in the back which was accessible via elevator.

Let’s pray Carmike doesn’t commit the cardinal sin of ‘plexing the place sometime down the road.

I believe “The Gambler”,starring James Caan,played here in 1974. Or was it in the mall? I know i saw it in one of the two.

Rainbow Promenade was never a Kerasotes. It opened as a UA in the ‘80s. Regal/UA sold it to AMC.

One more question:in 1980,was the five screen building new or had it been previously occupied and then converted into a theatre?

This theatre can be seen during the “Lights and the Smiles” number in the movie “The First Nudie Musical”.(originally released by Paramount in 1975,rereleased by World-Northal in ‘77)

“The Reincarnation of Peter Proud” is the movie on the marquee.

I didn’t see Jaws in its original theatrical run in 1975.

My dad took my older sister,who was 7 at the time,to the Rosecrans Drive in to see it. I first saw it on tv in 1979.

I read(in the LA Times,i think)that the mall where the MJ Theatres are is going to be renovated/updated and,if the theatres are closed,a new theatre will replace it.

Was it a single or a twin when it opened? Because,again i can’t see why they would cut up that big auditorium. They could have been add-ons.

Does anyone know when TESB opened @ Plitt Parkway 3 in Las Vegas,NV?

I think it was in 70mm. I do remember seeing it in the original big auditorium and it was quite loud. The line was literally around the building.

My first ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW experience was here Halloween 1987. I became of the performing cast a week later. Several months later,without warning,we were homeless until we started performing @ GCC Montcair Plaza 8.

Last movies i remember seeing there was a double feature of “SEE NO EVIL,HEAR NO EVIL” & “SCENES FROM THE CLASS STRUGGLE IN BEVERLY HILLS” That was in 1989.

It’s true! I saw SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER & LOOKING FOR MR. GOODBAR(both rated R)here with my folks in early 1978. I was 8 and LFMG scared the hell out of me. I think it was still this way when we moved to Las Vegas in March of 1979.

richjr37 commented about National Hills Theatre on Jan 16, 2010 at 1:56 pm

According to imdb.com,The Good,The Bad & The Ugly was originally released in 1967,just a few months before the MPAA rating system took place. Upon its reissue in 1969,it was resubmitted and given an M rating.(precursor to the GP/PG ratings)
When it came to video in the ‘80s(presumably 1989),the rating was changed to an R due to violence. Today,it plays more like a PG-13,if anything.

MikeRogers,DOC SAVAGE was rated G. I have the one sheet poster autographed by Ron Ely,himself. I saw it at the South Gate drive-in in South Gate,California. The second feature was WHAT’S UP,DOC? with Barbara Streisand & Ryan O'Neal. Also G rated.

According to IMDB.com,THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME was presented in 35mm 4-track stereo(magnetic prints) and Dolby Stereo(optical prints). Never in 70mm or with 6-track stereo.

richjr37 commented about Fox Cineplex Theatres on Jan 2, 2010 at 12:07 pm

Went here on New Years Day to see SHERLOCK HOLMES. The lobby and arcade areas are quite nice but the new rocking chair seats in the auditorium we were in(#2 in the front of the building)are highly uncomfortable(so said my mom)and the handicapped stall was too narrow for my wheelchair. Presentation is still just ok.

Still a bargain,though,for first run movies @ $5.00,half off all day Wednesday.
