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?
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?
