Cinemark recently acquired this theatre.
I visited the Rave in Las Vegas which is now operated by AMC. It still is very much RAVE all over the place. I’m surprised since Carmike has already rebranded, I thought AMC would be more anxious to do so.
I’m pretty sure that whatever project they’re planning, it would be smart to include a theatre as an anchor.
The theatre building was torn down in late 2012. There will be a health club taking its place.
If I’m not mistaken, this theatre opened as a discount theatre.
Is the stadium seating used by Loews any different than what any other theatre chain was already building? What do you mean by “credited itself”?
I never knew that to be a UA practice.
What does this photo have to do with this theatre?
I know of many many many supermarkets that became a theatre. Was probably more common before stadium seating though.
The six was in the mall. The 4 was next door and is listed on this site as the Gator Cinemas.
Bill is still there.
I don’t see why not. :P
Three screens are under construction to bring the total to eleven.
I don’t know that this was the last theatre Rainey designed, as Century Folsom, Roseville and Rancho Santa Fe opened after the Capitol 16 — all VERY similar in design.
Capitol 16 was demolished in February of 2013.
I thought that Metropolitan Theatres built this location.
What caused this theatre to close?
I would agree — Google Earth images seem to show a consistent building.
But cameras don’t matter if nobody is watching them. All cameras would provide in a situation like Aurora is the ability to go back and have footage for the news of the gunman walking out, in, out, and being apprehended. It wouldn’t have stopped anything.
I never ventured inside, but I imagine this theatre was similar to the UA Tanforan 4 in San Bruno, CA. Had the same sort of box office entrance with the giant color coded 1-2-3-4 next to the poster frames.
I’m sure they had to have been off limits. That part of town has always been rowdy so I imagine during drive-in business the rowdiness just got worse.
The sixth screen at this location as been rebuilt and is currently up and running. Should now be the Las Vegas 6 Drive-In.
Digital projection to be installed before the end of April 2013.
There is also a duplicate listing of this as the West Wind Drive-In (which it is operated by).
Does this mean we’ll get at least one year where the media stops saying that tv, cable, internet and pirated movies are going to end the movie going world as we know it?!
Naw. Regal has enough of a presence in the area to negate that. Though the Rave is usually the highest grossing theatre in Vegas, Regal has a number of strong competitors against existing Century locations.
From what I hear, this and a few other locations will NOT go to Cinemark. They were once branded as “Rave Digital Media” theatres on their website, so likely as another company. So unless there’s another announcement I think this and a few others won’t be Cinemark.
Basically = Old National Amusements site = Cinemark+The Rave in Baldwin Hills, L.A.
