Update: The new seats that were put into the auditoriums that were being redone last time I was there are plush and the rows are spaced wide apart. Not so great for those of us who like to put their feet up — even the longest legs won’t reach — but very comfortable and the public seems to appreciate them. Attendance was decidedly up from what it’s been previously. Maybe this theater has a future after all.

The last time I was there (March 2016) they had torn the seats out of all the older “flat” auditoriums and were in the process of putting in new seats. If the two auditoriums where the process has been completed are any guide, the new seats will not be as comfortable as the old. The newer stadium-style auditoriums aren’t bad, but except for one or two they are on the smallish side. At least Regency seems to be trying to make a go of this theater, which is encouraging.

“The Rocketeer” was presented at Pacific’s Commerce Theatres in 35mm Dolby Stereo beginning on Friday June 21, 1991.

Pacific’s Commerce Theatre opened as a fourplex on March 23, 1980. It was remodelled and expanded to a sevenplex opening on April 26, 1991. Today it is a 14 plex operated by Regency Theatres. The Commerce was the first new multiplex theatre designed and built in the United States to serve the Hispanic Community.

The Rivest website is being corrected to show it to open in 1977. The infomation that I had was not as accurate as it is now.

From the looks of it, Pacific is still running it for the rest of the week. Regency takes over Friday.

Chuck1231, not much info on CT I would stake my life on, except for Michael Coate! Some folks really throw some garbage on when they add a theater, they are not very careful at all. Even stuff found in Boxoffice, Ads etc. sometimes has mistakes in it. What can you expect when sometimes you go back 100 years.

As for me, I try to straighten things out and add stuff I find all over. Most of the time I add a question mark at the end cause I’m not sure, but I guess it’s better to post than not to. Sometimes it gets other people to comment. If nothing else it gives a general idea and is beter than nothing, which is what my wife says about me!

1984 opened with 4 screens?

Early 1990’s expanded to 7 screens?

1998 14 screens?

More info and photos?

The newer screens are “sort of” stadium seating — not banked quite as steeply as your run-of-the-mill stadium seating. I prefer the older auditoriums myself; they have not been retrofitted.

Its an old theater. I don’t know when it opened but I know it was a 7 plex for a long time. Around the mid 90’s it expanded to 14 screens to try and draw crowds that went to Montebello, Norwalk and surrounding areas

The 7 new screens do have stadium seating. I do not know if the old 7 were retrofitted. They do show a lot of movies with Spanish subtitles.
