Opened as the Courtyard 6, and attended by Victoria Principle and Jim & Tammy Faye Bakker. Within three years after opening, an additional four screens were added, making it the Courtyard 10. It then became the Signature 10. In 2004, Signature Theatres remodeled the cinema, bringing the screen count down to nine. The 10th theatre is apparently now used as a meeting room. The Stadium 9 is one of the homes of the annual Palm Springs Film Festival, held every January.
Currently it is run by Regal Entertainment. The remodel on the cinema was amazing. It brought a simple unassuming cinema from the early-1990’s up to date, with new stadium seating, digital sound, and wide leather seats. The two largest auditoriums (#1 & #15), seat about 350 each, and have huge tall 50 foot screens with side masking. It is truly fantastic to watch a widescreen film in a way it was supposed to be presented.
There are five theatres that are anywhere from 140 to 250 seats each. Those auditoriums have top masking and the screens are anywhere from 30-40 feet each, although all those fantastic wide leather seats.
The remaining two theatres (#8 and #9), are small intimate cinemas with large leather chairs set up with tables as well. It is a very nice screening room type. Even though the screens in these two theatres are on the small side, the presentation is always fantastic, and the intimacy of the theatre really works with those numbers of seats.
Last shows at the theatre tend to be at 7:30pm or earlier, but there are later performances on Friday & Saturday evenings.
