Cinemark plans on closing this theatre on 10/25/2012 the day prior to opening its new Century Riverpark 16 in nearby Oxnard.

Seriously — half the theatres I worked in probably had mold in the ceiling tiles and curtains anyway. That’s what makes it smell like a good old theatre!

With the remodel happening it’s a bit frustrating that there aren’t any pictures posted of the theatre in it’s Cineplex Odeon state.

I think the marquee is probably been redone by now. I know when I was in Cincinnati for Cinematour the managers at one of the theatres said that they were taking down/covering all the marquees. When you think about it people don’t really look at them anymore because they 1) expect every theatre is showing every movie regardless of the zone they’re in and 2) they used the internet instead.

Probably time to update the summary above as a new theatre was not built in its place, the same one was renovated.

Colorado Cinemas did not operate this theatre nor did it open the Bowles Crossing. Mann closed this theatre and opened Bowles Crossing. Where on earth are you getting your information!?

I don’t think this was ever owned by Colorado Cinemas or Kerasotes. Mann closed it in 2003.

Of course it is. Why do drive-ins turn into trailer parks or Wal-Marts?!

That’s not confusing in a land full of Century Theatres.

Not surprising at all. San Francisco is probably extremely difficult to build in, let alone an historic building.

Way cool. I bet a bowling alley under the domes will be pretty fun.

No good reason to develop land right now if there are no retail tenants to fill it or people buying houses.

Chuck — all of the opening dates listed for Century Theatres on Cinematour are 99.99999% correct. I’m sure you’re finding newspaper references but if you’d rather you can use the dates there. I used to work for Century and had very detailed records about the openings and closings of most theatres.

Yes — this was operated by National Amusements when it closed.

Scott Neff commented about Meadowview Theater on Aug 30, 2012 at 10:27 am

Did AMC run this at some point or did classic just borrow the “Theatre” sign from another site?

Scott Neff commented about Cinepolis opening eight-screen, 600 seat luxury-plex at Westlake Promenade at end of September on Aug 28, 2012 at 10:46 am

So is it all new construction or just a remodel of the Mann?

Yeah — these “good as thumbnail” photos really gotta stop. If they aren’t good blown up — don’t post em.

Looks like a sister to the Maya theatre in Dinuba.

Also — I think this picture is actually the Hemet 12.

I don’t recall this theatre having been sold to Signature, nutty.

It appears not to be operated by Phoenix, it is not listed on their website.

Scott Neff commented about Cineplex Cinemas Winston Churchill 24 on Jul 31, 2012 at 5:17 pm

I don’t think it’s “zone” that has anything to do with it. Many theatre chains have multiple theatres in the same booking zones. I think it’s a matter of whether or not competition would be prohibited by Cineplex owning two theatres in the same area. At least — that’s how it would be in the US. I don’t know about Canada.

Scott Neff commented about Century Aurora on Jul 23, 2012 at 8:43 am

I’m pretty darn sure Cinemark will remodel the whole place. I think they HAVE to. How else will people get over going back there? #9 will probably be turned into an XD theatre with leather seats and huge screen.

I used to do audits at this theatre every chance I could. (I love Denver). I can close my eyes and see exactly what things look like. I used to spend hours at that theatre early in the morning and late at night. What’s also creepy is that the theatre is nearly identical to four other Centurys so I’m sure people working at those can imagine as well.

Here’s a good link to a blog about the incident. It really hit the nail on the head for me.

I always wanted to see a movie here but sadly I stopped working in Chicago for I got the chance.

Just looking at the pictures makes me wish there was a good old slope seated theatre I could see a movie at around San Francisco.
