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.

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

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.

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 11:43 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.

Scott Neff commented about Century Aurora on Jul 20, 2012 at 12:11 pm

well.. it is about its exhibition history. There have been similar comments made about shootings on other theatre pages, the only difference is that those happened 10 years ago and not this morning.

As for the theatre recovering — though it will forever have the stigma attached to it — the more important question is how will this effect theatres in general? People are already asking why bother go to a movie when they can get them at home. Now they can add that they don’t get shot at home as another reason to stop going.

Suspend comments — not a bad idea.

The crazy guy reportedly came in through the emergency exit door.

And where was security? Many theatres don’t have security, or if they do it’s only on weekends or during particularly volatile films. Asking where was security is almost like asking the question “Why wasn’t there an usher sitting in each theatre to make sure the temperature doesn’t get too hot?” It’s just not realistic, especially when you see the quality of some security firms out there. Now had it been an off-duty police officer I think that’d be different story.

Scott Neff commented about Valley Cinemas on Jul 17, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Central Valley Cinemas turned into Silver Screen Amusements. The theatre shut down in 1995 when Silver Screen went bankrupt.

I believe there was also a similar cinema in Gilroy, which to my knowledge still stands vacant since 1995.

Looks like they took advantage of the hill sloping for stadium seating.

New competition? You mean Cinemark’s own 16-plex one exit down?

Scott Neff commented about Noyo Theatre on Jun 22, 2012 at 10:57 pm

Cinema West recently sold this theatre to a local couple. I helped remodel this theatre from one to three screens and now it’s being handed off. I used to drive there to teach the managers to build up movies on Thursday nights. Took them forever to get the hang of it. I remember driving home to Petaluma at 2:00am. Anybody who knows the area knows that Petaluma is a long way from Willits.

Scott Neff commented about Century 21 on Jun 11, 2012 at 8:38 pm

Though the signs still say Century 21, the name on this page should probably reflect Winchester 21.

Scott Neff commented about Century 22 on Jun 11, 2012 at 8:37 pm

Though the sign on the building says Century 22, the name should probably be changed to Winchester 22.

Scott Neff commented about Century 23 on Jun 11, 2012 at 8:36 pm

It is most certainly a Vincent Raney theatre.

Additional info needs to be changed. It’s not operated by Cinemark. The Century 21, 22 and 23 were left out of that deal.

Scott Neff commented about Dutch Square 14 on May 29, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Having walked through the theatre yesterday I have to assume this is an entirely new build. A perfectly symetrical 14 plex with 7 screens to the left and 7 to the right.
