Marcel commented about Will South Pasadena's Rialto Theatre rise again? on Jul 16, 2014 at 12:48 am

It would be great to have this theatre back in it’s original venue. Just went by and took pictures a few months ago!

Marcel commented about Curtains for the Prince Music Theater? on Jul 16, 2014 at 12:47 am

That’s a shame… is this the former Midtown theatre? I remember walking by there in 1994 they had The Lion King.

Nice theatre! Stopped in Ardmore once to go antiquing when I was coming back from Oklahoma City to Dallas.

Marcel commented about Santa Monica theater upgrades could touch Laemmle too on May 11, 2014 at 5:06 pm

SAD TO HEAR… I like how Santa Monica still has the theatres on the Promenade and the Broadway marquee looks nice there…giving it the old downtown feel. The Laemmle there is nice also. Soon it will be one big ugly multiplex and a movie will be $16-20.

Marcel commented about Baltimore's last adult movie theater closes on Dec 31, 2013 at 7:36 pm

Two remain in Los Angeles- the Tiki and the Studs. I lived n Baltimore in 2001 and remember hearing about the Apex but didn’t know anyone who went.

I always loved this theatre in the 90’s- saw tons of great art house films here while I was in college. Sundance renovated it and made it even better-glad it’s back. Great theatre.

Resembles the Jerry Lewis theatres or a General Cinema.

Marcel commented about Santa Monica Place plans for new movie theater on Oct 19, 2013 at 10:19 pm

I hope a new theatre won’t close the Broadway or the current AMC…Santa Monica Promenade is one of the few places that still has this main street movie theatre effect. Do we really need another movie theatre in a mall?

Marcel commented about TCL Chinese Theatre on Nov 8, 2012 at 3:42 pm

I hope you’re right Robert and I agree- it’s a shame Arclight snags everything from them-sure would be nice to see Skyfall there. I’ve seen many Bond films there!

Only if the theatre owners have the thousands of dollars to convert. It’s very costly.

Marcel commented about Pearl Stadium 8 on Jul 6, 2012 at 8:14 pm

One of the last remaining “in the corner of the mall” theatres…hope the renovations bring some much needed business back to this mall. I remember how nice it was in the nineties…anybody remember Hess’s Dept. Store??

Marcel commented about Sundance Cinemas Sunset 5 on Apr 28, 2012 at 5:29 pm

I agree dtrigubetz. Good news socal09. So glad someone saved it. Great memories here. Saw tons of great arthouse films here in the 90’s during college, then hung out downstairs at Virgin Megastore and eating at Wolfgang Pucks! The Archlight is nice, but seriously, $16.00 for a movie?

Marcel commented about New Port Theatre on Apr 28, 2012 at 5:14 pm

Glad to hear it’s being used again. It’s in such a beautiful area. I used to pass this theatre on the way to Laguna Beach in the 90’s.

Marcel commented about Allen Theatre on Apr 20, 2012 at 5:35 pm

A beautiful theatre inside and out. Glad to see it’s still open. Went to the movies here alot when I lived in the area in the early 2000’s. Nice area too…near Hershey and lot’s of antiquing. Cant ever imagine it being an x rated theater…a very nice community.

A_Mclean/Stan Malone, according to my film ad archives, the Buckhead Art Cinema was located at 3073 Peachtree Road at Corner of E. Paces Ferry. I have ads from 1990.

Anyone have photos looking up or down Broadway when the Ritz Theatre was Cinema I and II? Thanks

Marcel commented about Sundance Cinemas Sunset 5 on Jan 10, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Glad Sundance Cinemas is taking over. Hopefully they have decent prices. I like to see two to three movies a week and can’t afford $16.00 a pop at Archlight. I don’t care how great the projection is.

Marcel commented about AMC Empire 25 on Jan 9, 2012 at 8:08 pm

I’ve been here and it’s ok, it takes just as long to get in and out of here as it does to see the movie (I don’t like escalators). I miss Times Square when it was marquee after marquee and competitive competition and prices.

A true Cinema Treasure.

Marcel commented about New Beverly Cinema on Sep 27, 2011 at 8:10 pm

SO GLAD this gem was saved and still going strong. Went here every week when I was in college from 1995-1999. I remember they even showed old trailers for the upcoming films!

Marcel commented about York Theatre on Sep 20, 2011 at 3:24 pm

I added a photo and article from the York newspaper from October 11, 1969 with the razing of the Holiday Theater. Some other theater ads on bottom.

Marcel commented about Hiway Theater on Sep 20, 2011 at 3:15 pm

Thanks John! For several years I wanted to know more about this theater.I have several ads for the Hiway from the late thirties till 1970. Great photo. I have photos of the York Cinema but I see it hasn’t been added yet.

Marcel commented about Neptune grand re-opening on Sep 18, 2011 at 1:24 pm

Such Great News!!!! When other cities are falling to one huge boring multiplex, Seattle seems to want to preserve their theatres. As an Actor, I want to see my name in lights on a marquee the it was meant to be!

Marcel commented about Capitol Theatre on Sep 10, 2011 at 6:00 pm

Thanks Dennis. From the various ads I have from the 60’s,they had a very unusual booking system. They would go from a huge hit movie to a grade b to a more artsy picture to a porno and back again.
