Will be interesting to see if they play same day and date as the Pacific 18 like Mann does or if they will opt for different programming.

I hope they can co-exist. I kind of wish Regency had taken over the Chinese…

Brad – are you saying that out of factual knowledge or just a hunch?

I think beyond ticket sales, Disney uses the El Capitan like a giant billboard to advertise its films. Millions see it on as tourists or on TV (Jimmy Kimmel?) etc.

What the Chinese needs is a lesson in showmanship and showcasing a film from the folks at the El Capitan. They need to lure a studio, WB, Paramount, Universal whoever into partnering with the venue to showcase studio product. Plus they could have the added feature of the Chinese 6 as a move-over house as new product is showcased at the Chinese.

Does Mann own any of these remaining theaters or are they leased?

I would think Regency would be too small potatoes to be a booker for the Chinese, especially if Mann can’t fight the Arclight. Would need to be somebody big.

Can they just move a 3D projector theatre to theatre?

Bet they can’t wait to get rid of “Arthur”. I hope that film helps put the brakes on lame remakes of great movies.

Does that setup require a different concessions stand?

Very nice. I wish there were photos out there of the auditoriums after the split. That would bring back memories.

People have to remember the El Cap is also a tourist destination…

Mann got rid of the Criterion in Santa Monica as well which wasn’t a loser at all, but something must have been up for renewal and they opted not to continue. Truly shows they are slowly closing down by letting things fall away as they leases are up etc. The whole chain must not have been attractive enough to unloaded as a whole to another exhibitor.

Does anyone know if the theatre is turn-key or did AMC take all the equipment with them?

My last film at the Vista was “There will be Blood” and presentation and sound were flawless and comparable to the Chinese and Arclight.

I would have to say that 95 percent of my movie-going experiences at this and other theatres are just fine. When it is not it is usually at some American Pie type film that attracts teens who feel the need to augment the film by pointing their laser pointers at on-screen cleavage. My biggest problems with movie going: crowds and parking. My other biggest problem is that we have a 2 year old and have no time to go to the movies. Ah Netflix…

That being said I think you two should stop your argument on this forum because it is getting more annoying than those dang Facebooking iPhone totin' teens.

Would make a great Landmark Theatre. Or… Regency, want to move into Seattle?
