CINERAMA PART III (1984 to 1988): SATURATION AND GÖTTERDÄMERUNG

As the release patterns of movies changed, the Cinerama lost its distinguished role as being one of the few theaters that offered exclusive engagements in San Diego. Films would no longer open at one theater for their premiere run. Instead, they would open at several theaters on their opening day. Despite this, the Cinerama would continue to host significant runs for such films as Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Amadeus, and Top Gun. In 1988, against the wishes of its parent, the Cinerama was closed and demolished by the land owner, the Douglas Allred Company.

CINERAMA PART II (1970 to 1984): SAN DIEGO EXCLUSIVE ENGAGEMENT ERA

5889 University Ave
San Diego, CA 92115

Films that played during these years often premiered and remained at the Cinerama exclusively during their run. While this was represented by extended runs of films like Deliverance or One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, on many occasions, films that didn’t perform well were paired with a second feature for the last part of their runs. Return Engagements of other popular hits were even returned to the Cinerama when even those pairings proved to be of limited appeal.

Are we sure the entire building was completely demolished? The presence of the “hut” on top of both buildings would indicate extensive remodeling, but total demolition seems a stretch.

Does anyone have pictures of the demolition?

Amazon is getting ready to buy 3 blocks (yes, blocks) in Downtown Seattle to build office towers. The King is on one of those blocks.

Is 63 weeks really the length-of-run record for a Seattle theatre?

The first run of WEST SIDE STORY was at the Capri (aka Park) in 1962.

KING OF KINGS had its 70mm run at the California in Downtown San Diego.

MUSIC MAN didn’t have a 70mm run, but its first run was at the Fox (aka Copley Symphony Hall), also in Downtown.

@kagemusha98 OLIVER wasn’t 70mm?! Oh man… I have to go check the ads because I think it was advertised as 70mm! I’ve been toying with a cleaned up version of the playlist so this is invaluable. Thanks!

I bought the ticket a day or two in advance, so the computer probably thought I was buying a HORSE WHISPERER ticket.

Is a good place to start. It’s not exhaustive, but if it was in 70mm, it was big.
