I think the sign referred to in some of the above comments can be seen on this theater’s page at CinemaTour.

CSWalczak commented about Cary Theater on Dec 2, 2012 at 10:30 am

This webpage describes the plans for the new Cary arts complex, including an architectural drawing of the new facility showing the former Cary Theater as the right-hand part of the building. There is also a photo of the building when it was an auto parts store. There is also this drawing of what the new marquee might look like.

CSWalczak commented about Nevada Theatre on Dec 2, 2012 at 8:59 am

This theater apparently runs as both a movie theater with a film series operated by the small Sierra Theaters chain, but it also is home to a number of live theater groups. Hence it has two official websites. The one for the theater groups staging productions there is: http://www.nevadatheatre.com/ and the one for the film series is http://sierracinemas.com/nevada.asp. {The current official website listed is a dead link).

Soon there shall be very little of Rave left; over the last month, the company has deals-in-progress to sell sixteen sites to Carmike, thirty-two to Cinemark, and four to AMC. Regulators will have to approve all the deals, but this would not leave Rave with much.

Even stranger: the slideshow is now of eleven pictures and now includes the Brentwood. Perhaps there was a problem at the site housing the pictures.

Here is an aerial view of the mall right after the fire; the damaged Cinema IV is at the top center.

CSWalczak commented about Uptown Cinema Centre on Dec 1, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Is it certain that it was demolished? If you click on the compass in the Google street view to see more of the building to the right, you can see the Living Faith Miracle Center which is what is located at the former theatre’s address, and it does look like a former 1970’s era cement block theatre.

This article about the theater’s opening includes two pictures.

Yes, it is working, but all I get is a slideshow of ten pictures, none of which is the Brentwood 14.

Although there are several pictures of theaters at the above link, none of them appear to be of the Brentwood 14.

CSWalczak commented about Tivoli Theatre on Dec 1, 2012 at 7:09 am

If you look at the Google street view, you can see the red brick section of the theater that survives and the back (if you swing around to Hughson Street). It looks to me that the auditorium portion of the building is intact, but, like you, I am also skeptical about the lobby’s survival, as the theater’s frontage would presumably have occupied the vacant lot next to the payday loan center.

And here, indeed, here is another story about the Cedar Lane’s closing that confirms that the closing was due, at least in part, to the cost of going digital: View article.

At least thee appears to some hope that the theater may survive as a performing arts center.

An article about the closing can be read here.

It would hardly be surprising if another reason for the theater’s closing was the high costs of going to digital projection.
