you have one specific theatre in mind- there are 25 of them.
Can you please be exact with your request?
Do you mean the current incarnation of the venue as operated by AMC or of the older Empire before it’s moved.
Circling back to Rick B’s post and link of 8/22/14- yes. There shall be a Planet Fitness built here. While some were hopeful that at least a community centre might rise from this, the place is going to be used and refurbished. Bringing life into the neighborhood & jobs.
Wow- that’s a great blog. Thanks so much for sharing it.
what would bring you to this complexes page to ask as it might get buried amongst other well thought out comments as your own.
did you think that a query to AMC via their website or social media outlets might be helpful than coming here constantly
Thanks to a blurb on the website “in70mm.com”, learned that the upcoming movie “ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” shall be playing in 70mm, when it opens on 11/18/16.
Bay Area residents can plan accordingly.
where the link or scan of the advert?
maybe he was upset it didn’t have reclining seats.
I used IMDB for my information.
Perhaps wish to share where you learned of this “correction”.
anyone attending looking for a good place to eat- let me recommend the Boston Burger Company, located across the street. If it wouldn’t get me heat with my cardiologist, I’d recommend the Mac N Cheese Bacon Burger.
tragically there’s no photos of the venue in the placeholder. Pity there’s no great “buff” of movies who is obsessed with North Jersey cinema to take care of that….
AMC is 15 minutes from this location, CineArts at Santana Row is 12.
As far as rent money not coming in- this is the South Bay. I highly doubt it will remain dormant for long.
There’s alot of fine photos that R8teco contributed. Can those be in the place holder?
Thanks Kevin for the photo.
Now if that would be the main photo for this page than some random hallway picture.
maybe next time you’d be able to snag a couple pictures right quick. That’d be awesome
most importantly – did Eliot Ness stop Al Capone?
Unfortunately this theatre will be closing this coming Friday, September the 9th.– another local theatre chain suffering loss in the ever changing South Bay.
Season 1 Episode 14 of “The Streets of San Francisco” – entitled “ A Trout in the Milk”, the marquee for the Grandview is given a quick glimpse. The episode aired in 1972.
thanks for the legwork steven.
It would have been nice if terry provided that information when he made his original post on this.
of course Bow Tie cinemas are going to be called bow-tie? what are they supposed to be called? Windsor Knot?
I’m sure the new ownership will do a tribute to this amazing venue, which I actually set foot in an enjoyed many films in, both good or bad.
When I care that much about a place or a movie, I support it at the box office, spending the money, not posting inane, annoying speculative drivel on a message board, the theme of which has long outlived it’s usefulness #jokesover
yes, people know the IMAX is under renovation.
What purpose are you trying to serve with this post other than talking to yourself.
Also if you insist on these run on sentences, have consideration for the other readers on this board and use your spacebar.
This coming September offers the usual eclectic fare .
Sept 10th is the SF premiere of “King Cobra” starring Christian Slater, James Franco and Garrett Clayton as Brent Corrigan.
Sept 11th is a 4K restoration of “Howard’s End”
Sept 17th & 18th a “Grease” Sing-a-long
Sept 20th a screening and q/a with Bianca DelRio and “Hurricane Bianca”
Sept 21st premiere of the Amazon series “Transparent” season 3
Sept 22nd a night with Alan Cumming
October kicks off with a 70mm screening of “Vertigo”
certain events where needed offer reserved seating, but in general this is and always will be first come, first served seating. The experience of this amazing theatre is added with queing up on Castro Street.
better late than never dave.
At least someone’s coming on and owning up to and fixing their mistakes.
For someone who didn’t like reserved seating at the Lincoln Square, you’re sure obsessed with it.
Not only did the Capri host a premiere of “the Wackiest Ship in the Army” but more notably hosted the premiere for “Manos, the Hands of Fate”. Filmmaker Harold Warren arranged for big “Hollywood” premiere on 11/15/66 complete with spotlight. However being able to only afford one limo for the “stars” and had to send it back around the street to pick up the next. Following the premiere, Manos, the Hands of Fate had a small run at this theatre.
I highly doubt anyone at Turner Classic Movies has that much free time.
But it would be an interesting series for them. Showing a truly classic theatre, illustrating the history and then showing that feature.
