this was a General Cinema Theater I was the Manager for a day Didn’t Like Stockton, at all, When I was there they had triplexed it
this theatre reminded me of Larry’s favorite theatre The FOX SKYLINE sharp parks blvd in San Bruno, After NGC, Mann Closed it David Cooper ran it as a dollar theatre until he closed it and GCC tore it down, I liked the concession stand in the round.
Yes Chuck, I agree when I ran the Coronet and the Northpoint and The Millbrae all were Single screens I loved it!
This was a hard theater to keep a Manager in because when the built the other 4 screens upstairs, One Manager for both houses and 1 projectionest for both locations Scheduling showtimes was hell, because you had to leave enough time for the projectionest to get back and forth without killing him, always the downstairs played the move over from the new theatre upstairs, We discounted the downstairs theater after the first year. they had to do 2 seperate inventories payrolls and split the booth hours also we hired many house Managers for the lower theater , It was a very seedy customer base after dark
when you were Manager if you could not get through the mall after closing you had to walk around the outside to get back and forth taking every risk of getting shot at
I was the District Manager for this Theatre and I was shot at one evening when doing a theatre visit walking outside to the other theater, That ended my night visits for that location
there was also Moon Light bowling lanes
what a great idea but it sounds like a scam to me whom ever owns the organ,should be donating it to the Castro, they will have no use for it any where else!
Eric So well Put I was thinking about you and Mr Albert and Birdy, and Dudley and Tim and Kathy, These were sun Fun Days that i had the pleasure of being there and having so many times that, I was so bored and couldn’t wait to get the hell out of there . And yes you did a Great Job in the booth. you didnt mention my favorite projectionest was Jim Dixon. email me sum time
IS MY FRIEND MR. BILL WILLIAMS STILL MANAGING THIS LOCATION? I have too say this man was the best District Manager in the Theater Business. He knew people and the business so well he could handle anything!
I WORKED WITH BILL TANNEHILL THERE TRAINING TO OPEN mANN’S FASHION ISLAND 6 IN FOSTER CITY AND I REMEMBER WHEN SCRAPPY MOVED TO THE FOX T AND C WHEN THEY SOLD THE SAN MATEO BEVERLY ALSO TRANSFERED THERE AND SLEPT IN THE JANITORS CLOSET.
yeah Ed Congelli was at the Northpoint and the District Office in San Francisco when it ABC Plitt. Jackie was his Assistant
This was a nice theatre I grew up at this theater My Mom was the first Woman manager for NGC theatres and this was the 2nd theatre, She Managed First she was at the FOX in redwood city then she took over the Carlos from there she went to The FOX Stanford, then Mann Closed all the Fox Theaters on the Peninsula. I loved the Carlos it was a very busy theater when it was booked. I remember we played WILLARD to packed houses daily. then Eureka Federal Savings bought the property and tore the teater down and built the entire corner downtown with office buildings and the bank and a penthouse living space.
they dont run this cinema i looked at there website they have nothing in AZ
yes,the Theatre was on the same side as Gold Mine you came in the entrance and it was the first space on the left!
who’s taking over this one Cinemark? or Carmikele? it’s has to BE Cinemark….
The Theater is completely restored and is open now
I managed this place for about six months, after Neil Stoleberg went to work for General Cinmea, It was a busy theatre and all of the Film Companies EXC. children wanted to work there. So in order for UA to play the game and get film they made the Manager hire these lazy useless people that couldn’t even sweep the floor.
I was reading on Loop Net that the Hyatt is Now For Lease, the only thing missing is the seats they have put in folding chairs. It’s AVA starting May 30 th, 2012
i figured that out by looking at there website
i don’t think there still open, there website says coming in 2011 , that’s gone! lol and there are no features or showtimes for this location
PAT, GO AHEAD AND CHANGE IT USE THE CUROSER AND GOOGLE IT TO THE RIGHT ADDRESS
I was the District Manager for this Theatre from 1989 thru 1992, I also Managed the St Francis and the Northpoint from Dec 1985 to April of 87. Then I left and went Mann theatres to open Fashion Island 6 in San Mateo ,returned to Cineplex as District Manager for the San Francisco Bay Area, Running the Northpoint was a piece of cake It rarely was busy and when it was you always had 2 hours after each show to relax, The only problem was the Parking Garage was a pain in the ass with giving out tokens for the parking. It was a Union house and I had the BEST of I A T S E projectionist at the Northpoint! also had the best at the Coronet when I was there. Good Old Henry Meyers always took care of me from when I was trained BY Al Levin, He was the Best in Theatre Management,Anyone who could work with him learned the business and its peoples very well.
Does Anyone From The Plitt Days such as Irwin Cohen, Les Jacobs have pictures to post? Even the carry over to CinePlex Odeon, they were the last of the Theatre landlords for this Theatre.
Janis 9 must be closed already or sold to someone the only advertising there doing is for Westlake 8
