hdtv267 commented about Century Aurora on Jan 18, 2013 at 8:57 am

Well I was incorrect.

The name is remaining a “Century” The venue re-opened last night 1/17/13

The governor of Colorado had a great quote, that I personally agree with…

“"We certainly recognize all the different paths that people take to mourn, the different paths that people take to recover from unimaginable, incomprehensible loss,” Gov. John Hickenlooper said at the ceremony. “Some wanted this theater to reopen. Some didn’t. Certainly both answers are correct,” Hickenlooper said.

oh great, then since you agree you’ll be contacting AMC and or the theatre complex itself and checking Fandango for ticket information instead of coming here.

maybe you should. I contact AMC regularly about my concerns and they are very receptive to it. Especially if its a theatre I visit often and have a connection to.

Coming onto a message board and prattling on without something really getting done, doesn’t help anyone, does it?

I recall seeing in a few of the stories ( which unfortunately I can not show work for) that the “Century” name was being removed and it was being re-branded as a Cinemark.

Sir, they don’t have to do anything. They own the buildings and can choose to present any way to see fit. The public will decide how they accept the changes and as they always do, pay with their wallets.

Have you contacted them directly with a letter with your suggestions?

Still hasn’t been changed when I was out there. But with it being San Francisco there’s this thing called the internet that provide whats playing when.

I was walking past there with a friend, we wanted to go to a movie and walked up to the theatre to see what was playing and when, the showtimes and posters are prominently displayed.

Yup, approval came through and it looks to be 10-12 months for the renovations.

Here’s hoping it’s open in November for my annual birthday visit.

SocketSite has the info as well

Sounded like an ugly situation. But I’d like suggest that perhaps in the future you might provide a link or other info as to what went on instead of just dumping those 2 lines here.

Back to socketsite and the news that this week (1/7/13)the plans for the New Mission/Alamo renovation come up before the San Francisco Planning Commission. Here’s hoping all goes well.

You mentioned this last February.

Im flabbergasted that you haven’t taken the time of the year to not only find out the exact date of the opening, but also to re-centre the google map image above.

That and also help out figure out a better parking scheme for them. Apparently you’ve got a lot of time on your hands.

wow, its been closed for over 2 years and you’re just coming here to pay “your respects”.

I sincerely hope you’re more respectful to family members when they pass.

have you contacted AMC about this? I’m not sure what purpose it is serving here.

I’m wondering the same thing.

hdtv267 commented about AMC Loews Metreon 16 on Jan 6, 2013 at 11:20 am

yes, the entrance for this venue is over on 4th street, getting to the theaters up the elevators, escalators and/or stairs. I enjoyed my visits there back in November

hdtv267 commented about Embassy Theatre on Jan 2, 2013 at 6:42 am

The space that housed the Embassy is going to be a 12 story apartment building.

So for the time being this should have been demolished ( not closed- the building was demolished after the Loma Prieta Earthquake) then changed to residential.

Always wondered why there’s no showtimes here late at night on New Years Eve?

Well it’s because they turn it into a huge nightclub party space to give people VIP access to the ball drop and a different place to ring in the new year.

you need to get around more. I’ve been in quite a few theaters in which i’ve had to go up and down stairs to use the facilities.

hdtv267 commented about Bridge Theatre on Dec 28, 2012 at 9:48 am

Here’s hoping. But nothing I’ve heard as yet. I’ll do my best to give any updates with evidence and citing my work.

As mentioned, I was unable to attend last evening. However, report came from Brian Darr who writes the fine blog “Hell on Frisco Bay” whom reported on the Twitter that before the final showing that former Bridge manager Joshua Grannell (who’s alter-ego Peaches Christ held “MIdnight Mass” at the Bridge for so many years) gave a very moving speech.

hdtv267 commented about Bridge Theatre on Dec 27, 2012 at 2:59 pm

Following this evening’s (12/27/12) screening of “Perks of a Wallflower” which begins at 9:30pm Pacific time, the Bridge theatre will be closing it’s doors.

The great city of San Francisco will be losing yet another movie theatre. This time one of it’s grandest single screen venues..

“ Built in 1939. Operated by Landmark since 1991. Only one mile west of Japan Town and one mile south of the Presidio, the Bridge Theatre is conveniently and centrally located in the Inner Richmond District. Named after the Golden Gate bridge which was built two years before, it is one of San Francisco’s most beloved single-screen movie palaces, featuring independent films and foreign language cinema since the 1950s.”

I had great opportunity to visit the Bridge on my trips to SF, it was a grand venue and I’m sad to see it go.

This 73 year old defined what it means to be a cinema treasure. Such a shame it only received 25 comments and will be forgotten, where nondescript complexes are allowed to have thousands of senseless comments with meaning to only one person.

hdtv267 commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Dec 26, 2012 at 10:57 am

of course they were.

It’s got more to do with it being around Rockefeller Center and that is where the Christmas Tree, skating rink, etc.

see I can speculate too.

hdtv267 commented about Paramount Theater on Dec 21, 2012 at 4:27 am

Why does it amaze you or anyone?

To the developers and those whom own the buildings it’s just a piece of real estate.

and c'mon it’s downtown Newark NJ. People need police escorts to get from the train and or parking lots to the Prudential Center.

Do you really think that a single screen theatre in Newark NJ would be a profitable venue?
