Coate commented about Sherwood Plaza Cinema I & II on Aug 25, 2016 at 10:45 am

There is a lot of confusion over the two similarly-named theaters in Stockton. Scott Neff is correct that this was a General Cinema location, whereas Joe Vogel appears to be conflating the details of the GCC and ABC/Plitt houses.

The best I can tell by going through my research notes compiled for various projects is that the venue located at 5757 Pacific was the one opened by General Cinema and later twinned. The one at 5308 Pacific (or 321 Yokuts depending on the source) was the single-screener opened by ABC and later run by Plitt. The key distinguishing detail is that the General Cinema venue included “Plaza” in the name (i.e. “Sherwood Plaza”) while the ABC/Plitt one didn’t (i.e. “Sherwood”).

So in summary, this page (43018) is for the GCC house. The other one was the ABC/Plitt house.

I think the Cinema Treasures editor should consider revising/updating the name of this venue to Sherwood Plaza Cinema I & II to ease up some of the confusion.

BrockKing13… Regarding your “Gone with the Wind” comment from July 15th, 2013, it would appear you’re confusing the original run with the film’s 1941 general release or a later re-release. While I was researching the original release of “GWTW” for this retrospective article I found the first run in Hamilton was actually at the Capitol in February 1940. And it was a roadshow (reserved seats) and so the cost of admission was more than the 35 cents you’re recalling (much closer to a dollar). It ran for two weeks followed by a one-week moveover run at the Savoy.

Not to nitpick, but this theater opened June 20th, 1975 (not the 19th). The grand opening newspaper ad posted by rivest266 is from the June 19th, 1975, issue of the Green Bay newspaper, and it clearly includes a “premiere opening tomorrow” blurb.

Coate commented about Manor East 3 on Aug 10, 2016 at 12:12 pm

Mark Brack…. I’m intrigued by your claim that the Manor East was the 8th theater in the world to have a Dolby CP50 installed. What is your source of that figure? I ask because by the time “Star Wars” opened in Bryan in July of 1977, I estimate there were over 50 Dolby units in use nationwide. If the Dolby unit was installed at Manor East for “Star Wars,” then the timeline for it being installation #8 doesn’t seem to fit a plausible timeline.

What booking followed the spring/summer 1962 roadshow run of “West Side Story”?

Was the Route 59 ever twinned? (Contradictory info exists in the overview and comments.)

Local619… Sorry to drag this out, but your latest reply prompts more questions than it answers. Any chance you made (or can make) a copy of the ad and can email to me (michaelcoate[at]thedigitalbits[dot]com)or post it in the Photos section for this theater?

Coate commented about Regal Bethesda 10 on Jun 29, 2016 at 1:43 pm

JodarMovieFan…. Can you offer a clarification, please? In a 2009 comment, you recalled seeing a CDS presentation of “Terminator 2” here and mentioned that it “did not better the 70mm THX engagement.” Were you referring to “70mm THX” presentations in general, or were you referring to a “70mm THX” presentation of “T2” at another Washington, DC area theater?

Coate commented about Wisconsin Avenue Cinemas on Jun 29, 2016 at 1:38 pm

Thank you, Local619. I don’t suppose you made a note of any of these being shown in 70mm and/or digital sound?

Does anyone recall/know in which DC theater “Terminator 2” played first run? Was it here?

“In the 1980’s, the Sameric Corporation added three smaller auditoriums to land west of the theatre and the theatre became known as the Sameric 4.”

When, specifically, in the 1980s did these additional screens open?

Coate commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on May 10, 2016 at 11:16 am

As requested, I’m re-posting the list of films that played here since the website redesign a few years ago has caused the original formatting to go haywire and because the original list is now buried among several pages of comments and because other, similar lists are less-detailed. So here’s a fresh version with improved layout and formatting. The 2000-2016 period is a work-in-progress and requires additional research/vetting and so for now only the titles are listed without any supporting details.

On a related note, I’ve also recently posted revised-and-updated listings for the Astor Plaza as well as San Francisco’s Northpoint and Phoenix’s Cine Capri.
