I loooooove this place…..
I caught a few awesome flicks there!
The Cinema is surrounded in a great place to browse/shop or get a snack/bite to each before and after seeing a movie there….

One correction—-Embarcadero Center Cinema is on the top (Promenade, or third) level of One Embarcadero Center, not the ground level.

According to signs beside the various theaters, Embarcadero Center Cinema seats a total of 953 people (which, come to think of it, comes rather close to the popularly-stated 1000).

Ive just seen the Julie Christie ‘Away From Her’ in theatre 4. Its not my first visit and wont be my last. The auditoriums are of a decent size and the presentation is great and very art housey. The staff are all very polite and helpful. If you dont know exactly where it is in the shopping centre it can be a bit of a hurdle race to get to it! My only gripe is why the screens are so small on such a large space of wall behind them. The already great presentation would be made even better with larger screens also they are high up too. Dont let any of this put you off cos they show brilliant movies in a briliant set up. Theatre 4 had 113 seats but it felt bigger.

I’ve posted information and photos from a recent visit here.

The address needs tobe changed to what lostmemory posted in his Sept. 18th 2008 post, so Google map tracks it right. Right now it tracks from Van Ness and Market Street area which is way wrong. The picture is right.

I went last night and took quite a few photos. I’ll post here when they’re up at Cinematour.

In my head — Cinematreasures = stories and anecdotes

Cinematour = photos.


Also — I have enough of a headache trying to keep Cinematour information up to date. If I spend too much energy getting photos to both sites I’ll go mad.
