40 minutes - A Parting View
The last of the exterior walls will come down over the next 40 minutes. This was the last still shot I took before filming the final demolition. The last wall of the former Mann/Carmike Alameda Plaza Triplex came down at 6:47PM, Mountain Standard Time, August 15, 2012. It will be greatly missed.
For what it’s worth, about 2 years before this theatre was torn down, I unsuccessfully tried to convince the owners of the local Reel Theatre to purchase this building and expand their operation. Unfortunately, they hadn’t the resources to do so, but loved the idea, if it were feasible. Too bad this building couldn’t see life as a second-run cinema.
