The news release at UEC’s website says this theatre was operated by a gentleman named Jack Lowrey. Though not certain, my guess it was not operated by Jack Loeks Theatres.
While I’m sure there are some legalities involved, I believe that Grand/Southern and AmStar are all the same company, but just different brands. I’d be curious to know any details you might have.
At least they didn’t put the marquee from the Holladay 6 to waste.
Built on the site of the Albuquerque 6 Drive-In.
This theatre closed in 2013 and was demolished in the same year. Replaced by a new build Winrock 16.
It’s been somewhat common for these AMC 30-plexes to have one wing blocked off leaving only the 13-screens in one wing and the large four screens in the lobby. 30-screens is just too much to program; not enough butts in the seats.
Judging by available showtimes on their website it seems this has happened also at the Deer Valley 30 in Phoenix, AZ. I know when Regal took over AMC’s Cantera 30 in Warrenville, IL they did the same.
Those that remain 30-screens have been turned into a hybrid of regular and Dine-In theatres.
If I recall, there was discussion at the time for Regal to bow out of Northern California by selling the Natomas 16 and Deer Valley 16 to Century as well. My guess would be that the May 2000 opening of Hacienda Crossings 20+IMAX helped Regal decide to stay.
When I say photos of both can be found at Cinematour, that means if you’re going to pull them off Cinematour, at least give us credit when you upload them here. ;)
These poor latchkey theatres that get shuffled back and forth during acquisitions…
This is not a picture of this theatre. This is an advertisement for the Regal mobile app.
Cinemark will be closing this theatre at the end of business Sunday January 24, 2016.
As of today, this theatre is not listed in AMC’s FAQ about the Starplex takeover, nor is the location listed on Starplex’s site.
Rentrak shows that the theatre closed 9/25/15.
Former grocery store… you don’t say. ;)
If I had known this picture of mine was going to be the only “modern” picture of this theatre, I would’ve taken a better one.
This is not a picture of the Arizona Mills cinema. Arizona Mills is entirely inside a mall and does not have a Cine Capri.
This is the best I can do.
Well I’ll be…
This is a picture of the interior of a typical Century Theatre c2003… not the Fox Theatre in Mdawaska, ME.
You’d think they would have repaired the glass block while they were at it… right?
This was the original entrance to this building when it was just three domes (prior to the late 90’s remodel). Box offices would have flanked the doors, similar to that of the Century 22 in San Jose.
Sad that AMC couldn’t find some of their old logos to stick up there and make it look original. Instead, #AMCAmazing
AMC is just doing that to all of their non-stadium locations with competition. Don’t know that it matters if that competition was Alamo or not.
The entrance to the Edward’s Westminster Mall Cinemas in Westminster, CA looked similar to the box office/entrance area of Tanforan. Both built by UA, but the only two I’ve seen that looked so similar.
You can see a little of the big green number 4 in this picture:
Theatre is closed. Now a gym as of Feb 2015.
