What awesome signage and to think now how AMC makes the outside of their locations dark and marqueeless.

I believe the church added a balcony that the theater never had

The theatre stopped showing movies in the 50’s and the place sat empty 20 years.

I don’t know if others feel like I do but the number one thing for me would be a massive screen. Something so big you can’t duplicate it at home. There was a reason in the 50’s for Cinemascope & Cinerama. Even IMAX is tiny now.

Nyer OMG you took the words out of my mouth. I said the same thing about GWTW 75th anniversary. Ho hoopla, no big celebration like for the 50th. I have been trying to find out if the showing yesterday was like the Wizard of Oz showings where all they did was project a DVD. The movie theatre business is DEAD and buried, any theatrical showings are just adertisement for the home DVD release.

The marquee is lit up with a for lease sign but I guess this is going to go retail :(

To me not advertising movies on the marquee is the stupidest idea I have ever heard. Why give up free advertising?

Any theatre no matter how much business it does is in danger if the landlord has someone willing to pay more then a theatre can. The Pacific-City Cinemas people DROOL over the money to be made for Cinema 1-2-3 it will happen as soon as the right offer comes along.

The East side used to be a BOOMING movie area. Other then the 3 films playing at Cinema 1-2-3 couldn’t this theatre have its pick of releases?
