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.

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

ajtarantex commented about Carlos Theatre on Jan 6, 2013 at 8:18 am

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.

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.
