That grand opening add is such a lie. There is nothing magnificent about this theatre. While it has its charm, it may be one of the worst places to see a movie in northern California. That being said, I love it for what it is.

Can we reset the map to not be centered on the Century Hilltop 16 which is on the entire opposite side of the freeway from where this theatre was?

Scott Neff commented about Pinole 10 Cinemas on Aug 17, 2018 at 10:19 am

This theatre though similar to the Century SSF in layout is more similar to the Century Ventura as it had the corrugated metal roofing/octagonal domes whereas SSF had the more rounded shingle domes. Otherwise, all three theatres were nearly identical and all three started out as 8-plexes that were added onto. (Pinole & SSF to 10 buy adding a 2-screen box to the end of the building, and Ventura to 16 by adding an 8-screen stadium addition).

It’s on the border of Sonoma and Marin counties. A lot of stuff in Petaluma was Sonomarin because of this.

Surprisingly, AMC operated this theatre after Weis and likely did so until it closed in the mid/late 80’s.

Do you mean Redwood Highway? That was the “locals” name for Hwy 101.

No. But it was right off Highway 101.

Scott Neff commented about Showcase 1 & 2 on Aug 6, 2018 at 4:06 pm

This theatre was not operated by National Amusements. Bob Lippert’s Transcontinental Theatres built and operated this at opening and they named a number of their theatres Showcase.

This was part of the Mike Campbell’s Premiere Cinemas, the precursor to Regal, which was sold to Cinemark in 1989.

According to the LA Times display ads, Krikorian Theatres reopened this location on 1/31/1992 appeared to operate this until 9/4/1997. This and the La Mirada 7 were not sold to Regal when Regal bought the other Krikorian Theatres.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Fiesta Square 12 on Jul 3, 2018 at 4:09 pm

In 2017 AMC remodeled this from top to bottom, installing recliners, and reduced the screen count from 16 to 12.

Scott Neff commented about Cinemark Movies 16 on Jun 28, 2018 at 3:57 pm

Interesting. Photos on Google image search confirm that after the remodel the directional signs in the lobby say Theatres 1-9 that way, 10-15 that way. No mention of screen 16. You’d think Cinemark would stop calling it “Movies 16” and just call it Cinemark Grand Prairie now.

How long until Cinemark retires Tinseltown as a brand altogether. It seems most are being renovated out of existence.

Scott Neff commented about Auditorium on Jun 6, 2018 at 12:59 pm

This appears to have been one of the theatres on the west side of the building, one of the two screens that were added after originally opening as an 8-plex.

This is confirmed, not Courtyard. Likely the Regal 8 in Chattanooga. Pics of Courtyard at Cinematour:
