Solano Drive-In in Concord has a similar building, as does the Santa Barbara Drive-In. The less stylish dome snack bars still exist in Sacramento, San Jose and Glendale (AZ).
Scares me that Radio City Music Hall had ORC consoles… I was never a fan.
Photos of both can be found on Cinematour.
Beautiful photo. Where did you find it?
The drive-in is no longer seasonal (hasn’t been since it reopened). It runs year round!
Was this a GCC Theatre?
Wasn’t this theatre originally called Criterion? If so — that should be noted somewhere.
It was the logo for Consolidated Theatres.
Judging by photos I’ve seen (even the one on Carmike’s website) it was definitely an AMC. The signage and snack bar are definite give aways.
The theatres aren’t actually side by side; they are down the street from each other. Whatever the case it is an impressive sight to see.
This actually never opened as a Century, it was always operated by Cinemark. It is just branded as a Century Theatre to keep in line with all the other properties in the Tucson area.
Chris — what do you mean by down vs. up sloping?
Is down where you enter at the top of the stadium and step down? And up where you enter at the bottom and walk up?
Lippert Theatres also ran this theatre, prior to AMC.
You’ll notice that’s because there’s no address listed.
Cause GCC knew how to build em! :) Unfortunately didn’t know how to keep em. That theatre was GCC, AMC, Kerasotes, AMC and then a forced sell to Regal. Poor latchkey theatre.
Also similar to the City North in Chicago.
(click on the photos box in the upper right corner of the street view)
By the looks of the lobby and auditorium this was a Regal Cinema at some point?
And that would be East Shelby Dr.
Address according to an old Rentrak listing I found is 1260 Shelby Dr.
Does the outside still look like a GCC or are those old photos?
Who ran this before Flagship?
Oooooh offers air conditioning. How modern!
I doubt they’re paying rent. Landlord probably found them to keep the space from remaining vacant.
So is Galaxy operating both plexes or just the four? And somebody else is operating the other?
There are many many many photos at Cinematour.
It condenses a night out at the movies. Combining the two allows people to go see the 7:00 show and be out by 9. Many people don’t want to stay out until 11 just to see a movie. So if it puts more butts in the seats then I’m all for it.
Also — if you don’t want to eat during a movie (or have others around you eating) don’t go to a dining theatre.
