This theatre was just renovated to include recliner seating in all theatres, one screen retrofit to be stadium seating, as well as a two screen stadium seating addition. Total screens now equal nine.

Ultimated eh? Good work Cinemark. :)

This is also not Cinedome Newark. Newark closed with the original seats in place. This is likely Cinedome Napa.

This is not a picture of Cinedome Newark. 1) Newark never had digital signage over the door, 2) Newark had the original red/orange carpet until it closed and 3) the snack bar in the distance appears to be newer/remodeled and Newark closed with the original snack bar.

I believe this is a picture of Cinedome Napa.

What is the purpose of this picture being associated with this Drive-in?

Scott Neff commented about Carmike 10 on Nov 21, 2016 at 10:00 am

The AMC/Carmike merger still has to be approved by Carmike shareholders and then undergo review by the Department of Justice. Unless AMC is able to acquire Carmike locations by way of landlords or expiring leases, I doubt any Carmike Cinemas will be changing hands until the merger is complete.

Recollection and memories vs. a photo of the 4-plex being at the other end of the shopping center than the current 10-plex.

Whatever keeps you warm.

Lee Roy Mitchell (founder of Cinemark) did operate theatres before naming the company Cinemark. So it’s possible his company ran it before officially becoming Cinemark.

A 3/21/1966 issue if Boxoffice referenced that this theatre actually opened 10/21/1965.

So helpful of a response.

Check out the pictures of the 4-plex at Cinematour — in a totally different spot than the 10-plex.

And then if you go check Google Earth/Historic Aerials you’ll see that the corner of the shopping center where the current 10-plex is was not there prior to 1995.

So I’m going to go with YEP.

From what I can gather from old pictures, the AMC Woodhaven 4 was a in the space that is now the Pet Store right next to, and butting up to Home Depot. The AMC 10 appears to be an altogether new build, separate from the 4-plex.

Thanks. Then this should have the “Previously Operated by General Cinema” removed and have UA and Santikos added?

Theatre closed on or around 8/23/2005 and has since been demolished.

Scott Neff commented about Regal Burleson Movies Stadium 14 on Nov 11, 2016 at 1:37 pm

Also — you sure it was ever actually a GCC? I have an internal list from GCC showing just about every modern theatre they operated and this is not on there.

Scott Neff commented about Regal Burleson Movies Stadium 14 on Nov 11, 2016 at 1:27 pm

This is now an AMC Theatre.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Loews Gardens Cinemas at Old Orchard 1-6 on Nov 10, 2016 at 5:27 pm

This location was not opened by Cineplex Odeon — the other location was (the 7-12). This location was opened by Loews Theatres.

Nice. A Bel Air parked in front of the Belair.

Historic Aerials show that the theatre was torn down and has been replaced with a gym.

Scott Neff commented about UA DeVargas Mall Cinema 6 on Nov 4, 2016 at 7:21 pm

The 7/26/1985 edition of Santa Fe’s “The New Mexican” featured articles touting Commonwealth building the Cinema 6 at the DeVargas Mall.

I could not find anything in the articles that called out whether this was an entirely new build separate from the Movies 1 & 2, or if it was a 4-screen addition.

Scott Neff commented about Chestnut Station Cinemas on Nov 1, 2016 at 5:05 pm

This was opened by Essaness Theatres, which Cineplex Odeon purchased in 1986.

Scott Neff commented about Park Mall Theatres 1,2,3, 4 on Oct 27, 2016 at 12:03 pm

The frequency of showtimes in the grand opening ad would suggest Benji was actually on two screens.

Scott Neff commented about Cinema 7 on Oct 25, 2016 at 4:47 pm

I don’t think these were ever General Cinema Theatres, but just designed by the same architect. The evolution of the complex here is similar to how many other Redstone/National Amusement “CINEMA I-II” evolved. (West Springfield, MA; Louisville, KY; Toledo, OH; to name a few)

Also – while not 100% reliable, this does not appear on an internal list of GCC locations that was posted to a General Cinema group on Facebook that appeared to contain all GCC locations since the 1950’s.

This was originally a Cobb Theatre.

The 4-screen addition opened on 12/25/1973
