I’ve learned that UA operated this theatre up until the Cortlandt Town Center 11 opened. GCC stopped running it around 1994, UA around 1998.
Previously operated by Sameric Theatres and United Artists.
Previously operated by United Artists, until 7/27/2000.
Their current showtimes appear to suggest they’re back up above five screens.
Photos on Marcus' website show they’ve further remodeled this place to look even less like a Cinemark. Wacky.
Information available to me suggests this theatre closed 9/16/1998.
I believe this theatre was originally operated by the Theatre Development Corporation (TDC) which built a number of similar theatres throughout Northern California. I suspect this theatre was similar to the Valley-Lodi, CA; Valley-Gilroy, CA; Valley-Manteca, CA and a few others that are escaping me right now.
I no longer see this as open on Marquee Cinemas website, and with the Lewisburg 8 opening, I would have to imagine that nailed the coffin for this one.
I think the two photos in the photo section are of two separate theatres. One is brick, the other is not.
This was originally the General Cinema Point Nasa Cinema 6, opened 8/29/1986.
Originally a Mann Theatre
With the longevity of films it’s fairly unnecessary to advertise what’s playing. If it’s a first run theatre they’re playing all the new movies. Granted at an 8-plex they may not have ALL the new movies, they have most of them.
Besides — most people don’t just show up without already knowing what’s playing. They’ve checked showtimes on the internet and decided that this theatre is the one they’re going to at a certain time.
Was this ever operated by Carmike?
This is now part of the Premiere Cinema chain out of Texas.
Cinepolis has some good photoshop skills to get those signs up over the theatres on their website.
The news release at UEC’s website says this theatre was operated by a gentleman named Jack Lowrey. Though not certain, my guess it was not operated by Jack Loeks Theatres.
While I’m sure there are some legalities involved, I believe that Grand/Southern and AmStar are all the same company, but just different brands. I’d be curious to know any details you might have.
At least they didn’t put the marquee from the Holladay 6 to waste.
Built on the site of the Albuquerque 6 Drive-In.
This theatre closed in 2013 and was demolished in the same year. Replaced by a new build Winrock 16.
It’s been somewhat common for these AMC 30-plexes to have one wing blocked off leaving only the 13-screens in one wing and the large four screens in the lobby. 30-screens is just too much to program; not enough butts in the seats.
Judging by available showtimes on their website it seems this has happened also at the Deer Valley 30 in Phoenix, AZ. I know when Regal took over AMC’s Cantera 30 in Warrenville, IL they did the same.
Those that remain 30-screens have been turned into a hybrid of regular and Dine-In theatres.
If I recall, there was discussion at the time for Regal to bow out of Northern California by selling the Natomas 16 and Deer Valley 16 to Century as well. My guess would be that the May 2000 opening of Hacienda Crossings 20+IMAX helped Regal decide to stay.
When I say photos of both can be found at Cinematour, that means if you’re going to pull them off Cinematour, at least give us credit when you upload them here. ;)
These poor latchkey theatres that get shuffled back and forth during acquisitions…
