News About This Theater
The Wescove Cine 1 & Cine 2 was opened August 20, 1969. This was the movie theatre to go to back in the early-1970’s up till the late-1990’s.
Theater one: Seating 900, according to the newspaper it was one of the largest screens in the San Gabrial valley. Every new movie that came out was shown there. The first time I ever heard Dolby 6 track sound was there. It also had a giant curtain that was working the last time I saw a movie there, which was 1992.
Theater two, originally seating 450 was later twinned making very small box like theatres. The main screen was the atraction at this theatre.
One thing that really sticks out was that the inside of the main lobby was always dark. Execept for the snack bar area. That was brightly lit up. The ticket booth was located outside away from the building. You would buy your ticket and then turn and walk inside the building. The Westcove Cinemas closed on April 5, 1997.
