The Sacramento Inn Cinemas opened in 1973. General Cinema Corp. (GCC) operated it for 20 years until their lease ran out in 1993.

Landmark Theatres purchased the property and began showing art house films until they re-sold the property in 1999.

The theater was demolished in 2003.

The ‘Village Cinema’ in Town & Country area (Northwest corner of Fulton & Marconi) hasn’t been torn down…yet. /theaters/6552/ It’s hiding behind the gas station. I snapped a photo of it a couple months back and if this site would open photo submissions again I will submit it.

I do recall the Studio did show porn in the 1970’s before closing.

The Studio closed I sometime in 1975 or 1976 and became a restaurant.

As of September 2005, only the parking lot lights and the marquee holder remain on the site.

I miss the Sacramento Inn. I used to perform in a cast at the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW which ran there for many years. I remember seeing “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” there as a kid. The last film I saw there was the “Mystery Science Theatre 3000” movie. I drive past where it was everyday and get bummed out. Along with other suburb theatres like the Birdcage Walk, the Sac Inn is just a part of my past I can’t go visit anymore.

Unfortunately (in the 70s), the most painful theater seats in Sacto. Even as a kid, had a hard time sitting for a double feature. Quit going there once I got a driver’s license.

I never found this theatre uncomfortable. Perhaps the seats were improved after the 1970s. Saw my first indoor movie at age 5 there: MARY POPPINS. In the 1990s I was there all the time to see Indy and foreign films. Loved this place and it had a nice mid-century modern feel to it. It seemed a lot more 1958 than 1968 to me. One of the two screens was split and although it wasn’t so bad, it was always nicer to be in the big screen auditorium.

I also remember going to see Rocky Horror there. The other screens would be showing Heavy Metal, Fire and Ice and Pink Floyd the Wall. Also remember seeing Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and The Pirate Movie there. Great memories of that theater.

I saw Problem Child here when I was, maybe, 7 years old. Even at that age I knew what an annoying piece of garbage that movie was.
