News About This Theater
- Jun 14, 2012 — REMEMBERING CINERAMA (Part 53: San Jose)
The Cinema 150 opened in August 1966 in Santa Clara’s Moonlite Shopping Center. The exterior was a giant square building with a metal escutcheon around the perimeter of the building. Inside, the spacious 901-seat theater had a curved 85 by 32 foot curved screen for the Dimension 150 process. The glass-enclosed lobby had a very tall ceiling that conformed to the open feeling of the cinema. The theater opened with the film, “How To Steal A Million” starring Audrey Hepburn.
The cinema closed down in 1991 and the rocking seats were removed by UA and installed in a Santa Rosa, CA theater.
The theater, like most D-150 houses, was later demolished and a medical center was built on the former site.
