Opened during Century’s big expansion push in 1996, this theatre’s layout and color scheme is nearly identical to the Century 16’s in Anchorage, AK; Aurora, CO; Salt Lake City, UT and Portland, OR.
Theatre project was started and nearly completed by Regal Cinemas. Before opening the project was taken over by Century Theatres. Most every aspect of the interior is a Regal Cinema; seats, carpets, curtains, snack bar etc.
The Regal design include an exterior box office that was accessible through the snack bar and kitchen. While the box office was completed it was never used; Century built an interior box office instead.
It appears that Google Earth shows this location is demolished.
Theatre is actually a 3-screen.
This theatre is being run by TouchStar Cinemas as a part discount and part first run theatre.
Ummm — Just about every Century Theatre built has a self serve snack bar.
At any rate — the theatre closed in August of 2011.
The theatre is currently undergoing new construction of a sixth theatre.
I believe it is also a single screen — not a twin.
You mean people saw Star Wars in that teeeeny tiny bowling alley theatre???
Does anybody have more details as to where specifically this theatre was located?
The 5-9 would be the theatre inside the mall, which to my understanding is still operating. The 1-4 would be the building referred to above.
Having never gone inside, I didn’t realize it was all Cineplex Odeon-ey still. I would have assumed National would have Showcased it up a bit.
Starplex has close ties to Cinemark (I think it’s Lee Roy Mitchell’s brother?). It’s not cooincidence that many Starplex built theatres are extremely similar to a Cinemark theatre of the same era.
It’s being used for live shows as well as banquets.
They’re all over every Cinemark of a certain era, probably starting with the Hollywood concept.
Well likely their first ground up build of the multiplex era…?
An article in the San Dimas Press from March 27, 1969 says that the theatre would be opening April 2, 1969.
The theatre was originally a 3-screen theatre, operated by West Side Valley Theatres. It was at some point turned into a 6-plex and operated by Cinemacal Enterprises which closed the theatre in August of 2003.
Cinelux Theatres later remodelled the theatre into an 8-screen theatre with stadium seating, later adding three screens for the current total of eleven.
Where were UA’s offices before they were at the Greenwood Plaza?
Theatre opened in July of 1988.
Theatre opened 9/19/1986 by Cate Enterprises.
Twin = more rent. Two screens just means you have more time to play your worst two movies. Cut your losses.
At one point this was the busiest Century Theatre, even busier than the Mountain View 10/16.
To save on taxes the projection booth consisted of 10 huts on the roof, connected by catwalks. Was absolutely bizarre.
Architect was Vincent Raney
All that will be left is to make a list which theatres are still open and who is running them. The last trace of the mighty empire.
