Moviebuff82 – It was called “A & B” instead of 1 and 2 because theatres 1 and 2 (along with 3 and 4) were located inside Westminster Mall (that separate fourplex is listed above under “Nearby” Theatres).

Why was it called theaters A and B instead of I and II?

Saw a ton of films here. Empire Strikes Back a bunch of times. The Shining, Bear Island, GhostBusters. I think the first film I saw here was shortly after it opened was a double feature of Bambi and The Apple Dumpling Gang. Great times here.

This was a cool theater back in the day. Saw ET and Jedi there. Jedi was 70mm. The building now houses a BABY’S R US. You can see it from the 405.

Status should be closed/demolished, as noted on ¼/06.

I think I went to this theatre only once. It was bigger and nicer than the crummy little place inside the mall. I saw some sort of crappy family movie about a kid’s dad who dies and his soul ends up in a toy robot the kid builds. I had very poor taste in movies at this time, as you can clearly see.

One of the last things I remember about this place is that they showed “Showgirls” on both screens at once, probably to combat the problems of kids paying to get into a G rated flick and sneaking into the other screen for some low-grade smut. The place sat empty for years until the offensivly massive Babies-R-Us was built in it’s place. Why does a store that sells nothing but baby clothes and accesories need to be several cubic miles in size?

Oh, and by the way, this should be listed as closed/demolished, as the theatre was completely torn down and its structure was not used for the above monstrosity.
