Hmmmmm,feel free to correct me but wasn’t the SRO Montclair Triplex(California)engagement in 70mm? I could have sworn that’s how i saw it.
GCC never left the west coast. They went bankrupt and started closing theatres. Those that didn’t close became part of the AMC chain when they bought GCC.
Although,i’m liking the design,everytime i go to a new page….this pops up:“This site needs a different Google Maps API key. A new one can be found at..” then it gives an address.
Is there something you can do? I can email you the addy offlist,if you prefer.
“Tree of Life” at The Arclight Hollywod,The Dome @ Arclight and The Landmark.
In case no one has noticed,the LA Times is listing it as “The Chinese Theatre & Chinese 6 Theatres” with only nighttime shows for both venues shown. Truly sad,indeed.
oops,clearly,i meant theatre,not thatre.
In an October 1968 issue of Box Office Magazine,it was noted that French director Claude LeLouch’s classic,“A Man and A Woman”,had just begun it’s third year playing at this thatre. It originally opened at The Crest,a few blocks away.
This place ran alot of second/third runs triple features in its last 15+ years
Congrats,gents,on 10 years. Here’s to ten more. Thanks for all your hard work in putting such an ambitious site together.
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.
nope,there isn’t. Don’t know who added that because it wasn’t me.
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?
Thank you and i stand corrected,kind sir.
Ron,i asked this earlier but i hope you can answer:when was the left side of the original twin turned into a triplex? Also,when did the five screens in the back open?
Pacific is converting this venue into an Arclight venue.
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.
