Most of the theaters within this Cinema are unusually small. Found the noise from the project to be extremely distracting while watching a film.
JohnRice, I am sad to hear that Cinemark has bought out the megaplex.
Before it’s demise, the Birdcage theater showed movies on the cheap. Something like $1 if I remember for movies that had been out for a long time. My dad would take my brother and I when we weren’t in school all the time.
I grew up in the suburbs and only enjoyed watching movies in the megaplex’s. Now that I’m a little older and have moved into midtown Sac, I have found a deep place in my heart for theaters like the Tower, Crest and Guild. If there is a movie out and I want to see it. The first place I look is at the Tower. Yes it’s old and run down and most of the employee’s there have no appreciation for what the theater is to this town but It’s a theater with history.
Maybe one day I will have the funds to purchase this theater and restore it to it’s former beauty. Until then, I will enjoy it for what it is and give it as much business as possible.
