FoxFan commented about Theater For Sale? on Jun 18, 2005 at 11:49 am

Vandalia, IL has a new 4 screen FIRST RUN CINEMA getting built very soon which will effect the availability of film for the older LIBERTY THEATRE. Consequently, the price and value of that building
is now considerably less than the current owner has offered.
With a major lack of film – the venues chances of survival are almost non-existant. I would recommend a sale of $25,000 tops for
this older house considering whats coming down the street in a few
short months.

FoxFan commented about Paramount Theatre on Jun 3, 2005 at 7:28 am

A friend of mine said that these seats cannot be the Paramount’s
due to color. I would be very suspicious at this point folks.

a friend of mine told me there will be new condo’s built here on the old site – and the front will remain the same – as of a movie theatre!

The 14 Plex going into Downtown Oxnard CA is the reason the LEASE SIGN dictates “CHURCH USE ONLY!”

To my knowledge all of the Ellis Chain was sold off twenty years ago.

FoxFan commented about Cinema 150 on May 21, 2005 at 10:47 am

Behind the MOONLITE SHOPPING CENTER was the UA REGENCY (which resorted to soft-core porn films) in its last few years to survive.
In addition the UA MOONLITE AUTO MOVIE which was only $1.50 per car load – and it had 1200 stalls! Triple Features packed the place!
The CINEMA 150 could not get many first run films as they were cleared by then CENTURY DOMES ON WINCHESTER BLVD. Now – when AMC
MERCADO opened – CENTURY could NOT STOP THE INEVITABLE and AMC got
to play day and date with CENTURY while the poor 150 died a bleak
death due to SYUFY’S OUTRAGEOUS CLEARANCES!

FoxFan commented about Camera 3 on May 21, 2005 at 10:44 am

Yes, Camera 3 will be back! It’s true!
But someone told me it will be EXCUSIVE INDIAN FILM-FARE -
not really what I envisioned.

Does anyone know who to contact regarding this theater?
I have a movie theater owner who would love to reopen
the house.

FoxFan commented about Historic Roxie Theatre Faces Possible Closure on May 19, 2005 at 11:36 am

This theater has potential but needs alot of work.
I recently saw a film there and it smelled badly.
The neighborhood leaves little to be desired and there is no
safe place to park one’s automobile. I think there’s a reason
why the poor owner has no money to pay his bills. Cake sales
and the like don’t support an ongoing movie theater – patrons
need to buy tickets and lots of them. Maybe someone can buy
the property? Then it would be worth an investors time, trouble
and money to save the old ‘once porn’ theatre.

Is this theater for sale or lease?

FoxFan commented about Park Theater For Sale on May 3, 2005 at 6:10 pm

Don’t you folks know that CENTURY THEATRES owns the shopping center that their old Pleasant Hill domes reside? Surprise! Surprise!
They are putting indies out of business all over the United States.
The Justice Dept is in the process of investigating them now.
Its true! Do a google search and see all the articles ranging from
Sacramento, San Jose down to Palm Springs!

I saw 3 women and 2 guys wandering around inside last week. They looked like homeless. Unreal.

FoxFan commented about Richelieu Cinema on Apr 23, 2005 at 3:42 pm

This theater was an experience to say the least!
Can’t remember what we saw – but we enjoyed ourselves.
Rear Projection was not as clear as regular shot booths but
nevertheless – the movie house was a treat to visit.

FoxFan commented about Loew's Paradise Theatre on Mar 2, 2005 at 5:57 am

Many of us had hoped for films. I wonder if the Paradise will ever have its silver screen revived again?

FoxFan commented about Coronet Theatre Will Close On Feb 10th on Feb 26, 2005 at 2:56 pm

THE GOLDMAN INSTITUTE HAS LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY TO SPEND AND THEY DIDN’T BUY THE BUILDING TO SIT ON IT AND LOSE MONEY. THIS IS SO SAD. THE CORONET SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN SOLD TO THESE PEOPLE. IT WILL GO DOWN and MONEY TALKS IN SAN FRANCISCO. FACT. IS SOMEONE TRYING TO SAVE THE “HARDING THEATRE” in SAN FRANCISCO – THAT ONE TOO IS ON
THE WAY TO CONDOMINIUMS I HEARD. YOU CAN THANK REGAL CINEMAS FOR SELLING THE CORONET – THEY HAVE ONLY ONE THING IN MIND –> $$$$
