I watched a million movies here in the late 70’s and early 80’s, including my first 3D flick: “Comin' at Ya”. I definitely remember it being low rent even as a kid; the snack bar was to the immediate right as you walked in the front door. I remember a lot of burnt orange tile and small screens, with the two auditoriums flanking the snack bar as being larger perhaps?

This location should be marked as demolished.

I worked at this theater – it was my first “real” job after high school. I started as concession, then did usher, box office and finally projectionist.

I used to love cleaning up the booths and finding 10+ year old trailers, posters and other stuff.

Some of the managers I had were Kathy Dominguez, Bill Fair and Don Lane – all great people.

Wonderful memories of this ‘tacky’ little movie theater. It was a tight-knit group of employees. Lots of fun.

…and yes, the building was demolished and is now an LA Fitness. :(

Saw many movies here in the early 80’s. Worked here from 1989 to 1991. Great place. I miss it.

Note: Questionable AMC Eastmont 4 in Oakland and the original AMC Hilltop 4 in Richmond were quaint comparison to the atrocity. I’m being nice here. AMC in the 70’s were boxy, unkempt and flat out grungy. As far as old time multiplexes, Century, some United Artists and General Cinemas were the way to go back then. My family avoided AMC theatres like the plague. Some of the newer properties are not much better (I’m talking to you Mercado, Fashion Valley and Fullerton!). Just saying.
