Nice little multiplex. Saw almost every movie from “Ace Ventura” to “The Mask of Zorro” here.

The sound in some of the theaters was better than others.

Turned into an indie theater but, lo and behold, the snobs of Pleasanton weren’t into that and liked Regal in the new Dublin location a lot better. Besides, who wants to see indie stuff when you can travel 30 minutes on BART to SFO or 30 minutes in a car to San Jose and see that stuff?

One update: the theater was completely demolished a few years ago and a new furniture store was put up (1 of the 1,000’s in Pleasanton).

One of my top ten favorite theaters of all-time.

I lived in San Luis for two years and I caught many a show here, my most favorite screening being “The Fifth Element”, a GREAT movie to see on a screen like this with beautiful sound.

Downside: the cheap owner either has no A/C and won’t pony up the cash for it or he won’t turn it on. The theater gets VERY warm, especially in the summer. Of course, I haven’t been there in about ten years, so perhaps, it’s changed. Anybody know?
