Recollection and memories vs. a photo of the 4-plex being at the other end of the shopping center than the current 10-plex.
Whatever keeps you warm.
Lee Roy Mitchell (founder of Cinemark) did operate theatres before naming the company Cinemark. So it’s possible his company ran it before officially becoming Cinemark.
A 3/21/1966 issue if Boxoffice referenced that this theatre actually opened 10/21/1965.
So helpful of a response.
Check out the pictures of the 4-plex at Cinematour — in a totally different spot than the 10-plex.
And then if you go check Google Earth/Historic Aerials you’ll see that the corner of the shopping center where the current 10-plex is was not there prior to 1995.
So I’m going to go with YEP.
From what I can gather from old pictures, the AMC Woodhaven 4 was a in the space that is now the Pet Store right next to, and butting up to Home Depot. The AMC 10 appears to be an altogether new build, separate from the 4-plex.
Thanks. Then this should have the “Previously Operated by General Cinema” removed and have UA and Santikos added?
Theatre closed on or around 8/23/2005 and has since been demolished.
Also — you sure it was ever actually a GCC? I have an internal list from GCC showing just about every modern theatre they operated and this is not on there.
This is now an AMC Theatre.
This location was not opened by Cineplex Odeon — the other location was (the 7-12). This location was opened by Loews Theatres.
Nice. A Bel Air parked in front of the Belair.
Historic Aerials show that the theatre was torn down and has been replaced with a gym.
The 7/26/1985 edition of Santa Fe’s “The New Mexican” featured articles touting Commonwealth building the Cinema 6 at the DeVargas Mall.
I could not find anything in the articles that called out whether this was an entirely new build separate from the Movies 1 & 2, or if it was a 4-screen addition.
This was opened by Essaness Theatres, which Cineplex Odeon purchased in 1986.
The frequency of showtimes in the grand opening ad would suggest Benji was actually on two screens.
I don’t think these were ever General Cinema Theatres, but just designed by the same architect. The evolution of the complex here is similar to how many other Redstone/National Amusement “CINEMA I-II” evolved. (West Springfield, MA; Louisville, KY; Toledo, OH; to name a few)
Also – while not 100% reliable, this does not appear on an internal list of GCC locations that was posted to a General Cinema group on Facebook that appeared to contain all GCC locations since the 1950’s.
This was originally a Cobb Theatre.
The 4-screen addition opened on 12/25/1973
This is a picture of Santikos Emabassy, not Northwest 14.
I was there today and on their evacuation plans that are posted on the back of each auditorium door it shows only 13 screens. Is this the “Mayan 14” just to avoid advertising a superstitious 13? Or did this have an annex building once upon a time similar to the Rialto Piccolo or the annex at Northwest 10/14?
Does anybody know whether this theatre was ever operated by ACT III before it got to Regal? From the research I’ve done about REG’s business unit numbers (usually featured at the top of the ticket stubs), this location falls in line with the numbers all the ACT III theatres receives, not the numbers that all the UA locations received.
Any input is welcome.
This theatre was built outside the Parklane Mall which was torn down a number of years ago. I’ve heard rumors that the site is finally being redeveloped which will no doubt help this theatre thrive.
This was originally the General Cinema Deebrook Commons 6. Opened on 8/16/1984. After it’s closure it was converted into a Movie Tavern.
It’s somewhat strange that Cinemark owns the Rave brand, took all the time to include in under their Cinemark/Century/Tinseltown logo, but are not rebranding many of the buildings. Did they just get a good deal on Cinemark logo signs?
