Page Manor is got it’s 5th web site.
Page Manor Cinema.com it is weak having not been updated since last year. They now having what starts Friday listed but it is very plain. Page Manor Cinemas.com just talks about “Rocky Horror”. I’ll give a $1 for a movie but $20 if they would get the lead out and run even a web site right!!1
I would but the owner Joe is always drunk.
I cannot speak for everyone but for me you donâ€™t need to be a â€œpast employee who got firedâ€ to know that the way this great treasure is being operated like a piece of crap.
Harsh? Harsh is not the right word for the emotions and feelings that one has when they see the Page Manor and feels they should have pride that it was reopened after six years.
There are not words to describe those feelings. I know everyone and everything has a story and skeletons can be found in everyoneâ€™s closets if looked for but let us make this site not about those.
And as for me being a past employee? Am afraid you are wrong my friend. In todayâ€™s world Americans need job security and Page Manor will be gone next year.

reichspot The Flicker Palace history of the Huber Heights Flicker Palace is not flawed. It opened as Jerry Lewis Cinema. The theater was within a few years was the Huber Heights Cinema. Barry Weaver later operated the cinema and changed the name in last 1970’s to Flicker Palace. Weaver operated it throughout the 1980’s playing midnight movies like “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes”. Go to the library in the ads from 1980’s you see “Weaver Cinemas” starting in 1980. Movie Palace name came in 1996 when it was reopened.
Classic movies would not work at the Chakeres Sidney. The town would not support that, as it also did not support a first run cinema by not allowing kids to be out past 10pm forcing Chakeres to have no late shows even on Fr & Sa. All movies had to be let out by 10:pm everyday! Sidney is a two-week town for movies. The biggest hits drop after the second weekend. The Sidney was the OHIO THEATRE before Chakeres Theatres purchased to cinema. The Sidney played X-Rated movies at midnight on Fri & Sat and mainstream Hollywood fare the remaining time. That was also the policy at the Elder through the 70’s in Jackson Center (Chakeres Never Owned The Elder).
veyoung Page Manor’s screen 1 is a massive 50ft curved screen. The management likes to book flat movies in this house leaving the picture in the center with big dark ends of each side of the screen.
The second screen is “smaller” but still is big for a twin. If however is a flat screen and the use scope movie which would look better on the “BIG CURVED JOB”. Plus the ‘smaller screen" the picture jumps. With that said “the big screen” is not the best anymore because the picture is off center because the “management team” or as I like to call them lackeys or simply a bunch of jokers don’t now how to operate of fix anything.
The projection is horrible. They play flat movies on the big curved screen and scope movies on the small flat screen. They are backwards. The sound is stereo but is hard to hear with all the loud kids. The smaller screen is a nightmare. The sound is awful and the picture jumps. You can see were they spliced the movie when watching. They are untrained and unaware of what they need to do inside the booth right down to the concession stand and box office. I have seen several times were they do not even give out tickets! I even once came out and reading the above statement did talk to a â€œJoeâ€ about the kids being too loud. He did apologize and send an usher in with me to show where the kids were. He smelled like he had been drinking all day and decided to come to work. I donâ€™t if it was the Joe who owns the Cinema. I do sometimes see a van out front with â€œJoeâ€™s Heat & Airâ€ on the side of it
Village Entrainment is the biggest dumb as*es working in the theater exhibitor business today. Village has no public relations first of all. They do no advertising what so ever. There are no newspaper ads and not even the Village Entrainment web site works anymore
http://www.villagetheatres.com The Webmaster had some kind of falling out with Village, which am sure was over money. Village has grown over the years but does not have the money to keep theatres running, either because they donâ€™t have the financial backing or they simply donâ€™t want to spend the money. Biograph Theater was sentence to death under Villageâ€™s name. Village sentenced Water Tower Theatre to death. That is just to name a few. Note to big chains if you want to destroy a theatre without a bad mark on your name sell it to Village Entertainment. Landlords want a reason to use a theatre space for other use rent it to Village! At Village Entertainment will kill them all!! No theatre is too big! 1,2,3, 4 screens even 5. Heck give us 20 we kill them too!
This Danbarry is open! :–)
The Green Valley is CLOSED for ever.

Movie theater closes
Regal Entertainment Group closed its UA Green Valley 8 movie theater on Sunset Road near Green Valley Parkway in Henderson on Sunday. Regal continues to operate eight theaters in the Las Vegas Valley and has plans for a ninth theater at Interstate 215 and Charleston Boulevard, to open in conjunction with Red Rock casino.
The UA Green Valley 8 theater was identified as an underperforming location, said Dick Westerling, senior vice president of marketing for Regal Entertainment, based in Knoxville, Tenn. Employees were offered jobs at other Las Vegas locations, he said.
John Kilduff, president of American Nevada Company, the company that owns Green Valley Town Center, said a new theater will not be put in its place. He said the company is working on rejuvenating the retail center and a theater does not work into those plans.
American Nevada is owned by the Greenspun family, publishers of the Las Vegas Sun

The thing I canâ€™t understand is how can 3 Penny keep surviving but Biograph seemed unable to stay afloat? It is not like I want 3 Penny to close anything but the Biograph is across the street and people seemed like they just didnâ€™t want to go to Biograph .
