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.
I’m sure they had to have been off limits. That part of town has always been rowdy so I imagine during drive-in business the rowdiness just got worse.
The sixth screen at this location as been rebuilt and is currently up and running. Should now be the Las Vegas 6 Drive-In.
Digital projection to be installed before the end of April 2013.
There is also a duplicate listing of this as the West Wind Drive-In (which it is operated by).
Does this mean we’ll get at least one year where the media stops saying that tv, cable, internet and pirated movies are going to end the movie going world as we know it?!
Naw. Regal has enough of a presence in the area to negate that. Though the Rave is usually the highest grossing theatre in Vegas, Regal has a number of strong competitors against existing Century locations.
From what I hear, this and a few other locations will NOT go to Cinemark. They were once branded as “Rave Digital Media” theatres on their website, so likely as another company. So unless there’s another announcement I think this and a few others won’t be Cinemark.
Basically = Old National Amusements site = Cinemark+The Rave in Baldwin Hills, L.A.
How was the masking Chris? :P
All the photos listed here are from the Showcase Orange 1-2-3 that was located across the highway from the 8-plex. Shouldn’t these be separate from each other?
Judging by the grand opening ads for screens four and five, it looks like it was a separate out building that was not actually attached to the other three. Can anybody confirm?
These theatres closed on 10/26/2012 so that a new 13-screen Carmike could be constructed at the mall.
Carmike’s presentation has actually been decent since they went all digital. And Carmike seems to be making an effort to update what I’m sure they consider to be their profitable properties. When I was in PA recently I was surprised to see some recently remodelled buildings.
I always thought this was supposed to be an Edwards, then they went under and then it was Crown and then they went under…
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?!
