Yes — it opened with Volcano and was the FIRST “Grand Opening” event I got to attend without having to work. I should have taken more photos when I toured during the opening but I was just so AMAZED to be in a brand new theatre that all I could do was marvel.
The original Northgate (operated by Blumenfeld) theatre wasn’t in this development. If I recall it was in one of the other outlying shopping centers.
Are you sure about that? It’s identical to every other Showcase Cinema of the era.
I see now that Cinemark operates this theatre.
Century Circuit Inc and Century Theatres are two entirely different companies. Somebody may want to go through the links for both and make sure of that.
Cinemark recently acquired this theatre.
I visited the Rave in Las Vegas which is now operated by AMC. It still is very much RAVE all over the place. I’m surprised since Carmike has already rebranded, I thought AMC would be more anxious to do so.
I’m pretty sure that whatever project they’re planning, it would be smart to include a theatre as an anchor.
The theatre building was torn down in late 2012. There will be a health club taking its place.
If I’m not mistaken, this theatre opened as a discount theatre.
Is the stadium seating used by Loews any different than what any other theatre chain was already building? What do you mean by “credited itself”?
I never knew that to be a UA practice.
What does this photo have to do with this theatre?
I know of many many many supermarkets that became a theatre. Was probably more common before stadium seating though.
The six was in the mall. The 4 was next door and is listed on this site as the Gator Cinemas.
Bill is still there.
I don’t see why not. :P
Three screens are under construction to bring the total to eleven.
I don’t know that this was the last theatre Rainey designed, as Century Folsom, Roseville and Rancho Santa Fe opened after the Capitol 16 — all VERY similar in design.
Capitol 16 was demolished in February of 2013.
I thought that Metropolitan Theatres built this location.
What caused this theatre to close?
I would agree — Google Earth images seem to show a consistent building.
But cameras don’t matter if nobody is watching them. All cameras would provide in a situation like Aurora is the ability to go back and have footage for the news of the gunman walking out, in, out, and being apprehended. It wouldn’t have stopped anything.
I never ventured inside, but I imagine this theatre was similar to the UA Tanforan 4 in San Bruno, CA. Had the same sort of box office entrance with the giant color coded 1-2-3-4 next to the poster frames.
