National Amusements parking lots are truly a sight to behold. I can never get a picture of them that truly captures their unnecessary vastness.

We have a boat load of photos at Cinematour.com

This looks to be originally built and operated by Hoyts Cinemas.

Their information phone line is still active with showtimes good for 11/8/13-11/14/13. Weird it’s still active and says Frank Theatres, but not updated. Even weirder that if you do an internet search, it has Hobbit showtimes.

And while I’m at it — what can we do about people uploading thumbnails as photos? Don’t they get that it’s going to pixelate and look awful? And dare I mention people who are clearly taking pics from Cinematour and posting them here? (I don’t care if they’re mine, but if you’re gonna post them, give the same people credit for them).

While I agree the name-calling and nit-picking can get out of hand, I’m going to throw my two cents into the ring and leave it there. (I know what it’s like to deal with this stuff over at Cinematour)

But at what point does it become a detriment to THIS site to have people regularly posting inaccurate information as fact? I agree that sometimes those taking issue with the inaccuracy could mellow out, but I can see how disheartening it can be to repeatedly see people come in and start posting inaccuracies about their pet theatres.

It’s such a tough line to walk since we rely upon others with our cinema fascination to continue filling in the blanks – but I find it most frustrating to think that some blanks are repeatedly filled in wrong. If anything, I feel sorriest for Ken who has to sort out and continually update based on good and bad information alike.

My major concern about inaccuracies is that between this site, Cinematour, Mike Rivest’s lists, and some of the other places with similar information; if enough of us pickup on one piece of information we can MAKE it fact. All of our geeky cinema sources have their strengths and weaknesses (which is why I enjoy visiting them) But if we’re not careful we can end up changing history because we’re the only people keeping track of it.

So back to my two cents — while it’s easy to do something about the mean people. What can we do about the stupid people? Myself included… I’m sure I’ve caused an entire theatre to be operated by General Cinema by mistake. :)

Was this always an AMC? The small logo is kinda creepy.

Theatre is actually six screens now.

If they’re still running 35mm, then I assume the Opera Plaza’s days are numbered.

By Multi-Cinemas — do you mean American Multi-Cinemas (AMC) operated this theatre for a time?

Looks like it was a Mann Theatre and NOT a GCC? the CINEMA I-II-III lettering confuses me!

Scott Neff commented about Crown Cinemas at Hickory Plaza on Nov 25, 2013 at 5:44 pm

This theatre makes me sad. I had emailed the shopping center owner to see if I could get in to take pictures the week we went there for Cinematour. Turns out they had just demolished the theatre two weeks before my email. So sad. Could have been inside taking pictures of what I’m sure was a time capsule of a theatre.

I couldn’t find the one you’re thinking of.

The marquee is actually still standing, proclaiming MQ6 Theatre… but the building is long gone.

Heh — I forgot that IL is east of the Mississippi. I used to audit those theatres all the time. :)

Scott Neff commented about Cinemark Blackhawk Plaza 7 on Sep 20, 2013 at 11:22 am

Two things: This theatre was never operated by Century Theatres, it was always a Cinemark but was rebranded a Century after Cinemark purchased that company.

Secondly — many of the Century Theatres (of California) are being marked as operated by “Century Circuit Inc.” which if I understand correctly, represents the circuit from the 1960’s that operated on the east coast. These are two very separate companies. A good rule of thumb is that the modern company never operated a theatre east of the Mississippi (and the east coast chain operated very few west of the Mississippi).

The photo pictured above is NOT the Hollywood Tyler Rose. If I recall that’s the Cinemark Hollywood 15 in Garland, TX.

Scott Neff commented about Ultrastar Chula Vista 10 on Sep 11, 2013 at 9:17 am

You are correct. This was originally called the Nickelodeon. In fact I think that CinemaStar (the folks that built it) were originally called Nickelodeon… not entirely sure though.

There is an article in an early 90’s Boxoffice magazine about the opening of this theatre, I forget which though.

Regal Entertainment opened this theatre, it was never part of the original Edwards Theater Circuit.

Most of the fields have been resealed in 2013.

I believe this theatre is now closed.

Was this originally a Regal? What’s with the jaunty “Regal Cinemas” with the circle 16??

Probably.
