I fail to see how this and the rest of your trip along Hollywood Blvd today is really “contributing something to the conversation” and “staying on topic”
yeah, I fail to understand what that even is supposed to mean.
it’s a shame it is no longer there. Green Acres seemed to be the place to be!
without question, as I commented about a multiplex still using film in this day and age.
I find it hard to believe that a multiplex showing a wide release in IMAX 3D is hardly noteworthy or any of the comments on this multiplex, which is why I think the Facebook page is more the place for them.
good that they’ve got a facebook page, perhaps your comments are better suited for that, since that’s been the level of them. Hardly a historic/informational comment that you’ve seen a movie there.
if everyone posted up when they saw a movie at a particular theatre or had a bowel movement there in, this site would crash.
A much needed update required here. After some “unpleasantness” the Pink Diamonds closed.
The Power Exchange sex club (formerly from Otis Street in SOMA) now makes it’s ‘home’ here. I’d guess it has been doing so since sometime in 2010. Seems to be still going strong today, as there was a Yelp review posted up on 5/30/13.
I’ve not been there since the Campus days- partly due to it’s location and it’s newer incarnations aren’t my “thing”
quite a historic venue this. The GEVI lists this venue as the first to show “softcore gay porn” back in 1968.
Yankee Stadium is 6 miles away. I guess that qualifies as close
Demolition date 5/8/13
Yup, it is closed. The website now goes to a splash page for something called “G-string Horror”, a ‘horror’ movie with ties to that theatre and also the “ghosts” alleged to be there in.
I too hope it’s able to find some new life- as a theatre.
Might it be time for the Alamo Drafthouse people to start looking at a 2nd location for San Francisco? This location being right in the thick of downtown would be perfect than the Mission location of the proposed venue and light a fire under the Metreon and Van Ness.
Only if someone out there knew someone with that company. Maybe next time some photos?
a half cent price increase seems a bit strange. How does that work out really?
The man’s last name is “Letterman”. With his first name being “David”, having a gay porn theatre bearing that name close to where you’re doing the show would be a good thing.
Thanks Joe, but I think you’re about 30 blocks off!
so is it for just this theater or for all of the AMC?
Again, your lack of linkage and citing sources is confusing.
Please in the future, show your work.
google it and find out.
umm, ok- so the link to that NJ.com article about this is where please?
AMC should be embarrassed to have their name on this third world complex. I attended a morning presentation of “Jurassic Park” in Digital IMAX 3D on 4.6.13
I’ve got no idea where to begin on how appalling the conditions there are or how misbehaved the patrons are.
Starting with the ticket girl having her back to people entering so she can do busy work, to both registers not cooperating with cards holding up concession lines. The red circle logo morphing into various expressions being stuck in an endless loop because the computer to start the show misfired. No “warning” to put on your 3D glasses. No messages about keeping it down during the show. Not that this mattered as I was physically threatened twice by patrons when I politely requested that they put the phone away. Elevators that take you to a different part of the complex because the 2nd floor bathrooms are locked.
Then the main floor bathrooms are in the most deplorable conditions. Graffiti, names scratched into walls and urinals. When I needed to use those bathrooms, one of the workers decided to put the 3D glasses recycle bin right in the way of the doors. How about whenever anyone gets up to use the rest room the door opens up and then the bottom right hand corner of the screen gets bright.
I attended a 10am screening. I can’t even wrap my head around what this bleephole is like in the evening. Unfortunately due to my schedule today, I had to go to this one to see the movie I have been waiting to see again for years. Tell ya folks, avoid this place at all costs. Yes, I’ve contacted AMC corporate about my displeasure.
Needless to say, I’ll never be back here again. I’d rather miss a movie than put up with that nonsense again.
huh? I read that a few times and it didn’t make sense, which is this other theater you’re referring to please and where is it located in regards to this one?
Outstanding photos, Ian. Well done!
Early shows are $10 here, just checked this morning for the weekend.
Will there be a parade? Plaque erected when they break a record. I mean, wow 17 weeks for a movie that is obviously making them money being allowed to continue playing there. Such an amazing accomplishment. Maybe they can get Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence for the parade. Please please take photos and post them here. This is so mindboggling. 17 WEEKS!!! WOW!!!!
Is that a record of some kind? If so please cite more about this amazing accomplishment.
oh I found the link with the photo I referenced.
and more copy righted images on this theatre’s photo page as well.
