I lived near Oakland from mid to late 2001 to mid 2004 and I have seen some movies here but I can´t name them.
01261967 I saw The Incredibile Hulk there in June of 2008 too I have seen many if not many movies here back when it was a Pacific and an Arclight it is sad to see it go but I hope that at least Regal Cinemas will do a major renovation to this theater with adding Premium Formats like RPX Screen X and 4DX.
Like I said before Heartbreaking! but this theater has had a good run.
@jwmovies This theater just got a nice remodel and now this location is set to close permanently after 26 years Heartbreaking.
They added an Screen X screen 6 months ago and now 6 months later it closed what a waste of money.
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/business/business-news/amc-theatres-nears-deal-to-operate-prime-l-a-pacific-cinema-locations-1234968531/ It turns out that AMC is about to take over I hope it will have Dolby Cinema or AMC Prime
That is great news I hope it will have RPX, 4DX and ScreenX
That is so sad I sure hope AMC, Regal, or Cinemark will at least take over those theaters I hope.
Whoops! I should start embedding things like that.
News about the theater´s grand opening back when it was an AMC
This theater was used as an stand in for a 7 screen movie theater in the Diane Lane movie ¨The Glass House¨ where Leelee Sobieski was seeing an slasher movie.
This is my 100th Comment on this site
This theater is Permanently closed according to this
This theater was seen on an AMC Theatres Employee Training video from 1997 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzGwS-yFXXQ&ab_channel=200710
And there’s another thing the theater is not on the website.
That is the 3rd time this theater closed well there is always the AMC Northpark 15 and Cinemark 17 since I have to say are better theatres since I don’t see the point of The Grand being opened again since Northpark and Cinemark 17 both have IMAX (Northpark has IMAX Laser) and Northpark has Dolby Cinema.
Well Jason Whyte I guess that’s reasonable

Here’s some good news Phoenix Theatres will be taking over this theater and possibly keeping the IMAX screen and converting the Dolby Cinema into a PTX Screen
No It’s AMC’s money that is being flushed down the toilet thanks to the pandemic.
This theatre has just added Dolby Cinema and upgrade their IMAX screen to laser What a waste of screens and money.
This was one of the only movie theatres that showed the god awful movie “Manos The Hands of Fate”
Another Movie Theatre victim of COVID 19 https://fox42kptm.com/news/local/omahas-amc-oakview-theater-has-closed
Very sad news https://preview.houstonchronicle.com/movies-tv/amc-studio-30-multiplex-closes-15712465
Closed a year after updating to IMAX Laser and Dolby Cinema What a Waste Maybe Cinemark Will Take over this theatre and keep the IMAX Screen And Convert The Dolby Cinema Screen to XD
But anyways About 3 months ago I found the actual Grand Opening ad
