Olympic Cinemas

The four-screen Olympic Cinemas opened in early June of 2006. The theaters were completely renovated and updated when Far Away Entertainment assumed ownership.

The Port Orchard Independent noted that the theater was originally called the Redwood Cinema when it operated under different management from August of 2002 until 2005.

In May of 2013 the Kitsap Peninsula Business Journal reported that the Olympic Cinemas had installed four all-new digital projectors. Far Away Entertainment has seven other locations in Washington.

Originally opened in the early 1980’s by Tom Moyer Theatres.

Original projection booth equipment was Ballantyne Pro-35 projector heads on top of Ballantyne Model VII soundheads (all mono sound in all houses). All those were mounted on Ballantyne “VIP” pedestals. Sound was mono Ballantyne model T-25 tube amplifiers mounted in each VIP pedestal. These were all two projector changeover houses running large reels. Auditoriums were done in Tom Moyer’s usual color scheme of yellow-orange-brown pleated drapes.

As an addendum to Ken’s notes: to supply projectors to the Silverdale 4 Cinemas, the “slave” projectors were removed and platter film transports were added in 1986.
