- Mar 10, 2011 — San Jose tries throw ailing Camera 12 Theater a lifeline
The Pavilion Theatre 8 was intended to boost revenue in downtown San Jose. It was built using funds from the redevelopment agency and opened February 1, 1996 by United Artists. Seating was provided for 3,700, The theatre was not as successful as anticipated. After six months of operation, the United Artists chain announced they wanted to vacate the property. Three years later, with no warning, UA packed up all the equipment (in the middle of the night) and closed the theatre.
A May 2002 article in the San Jose Mercury news indicated that San Jose based Cinelux Theatres was interested in re-opening the theatre.
It was reopened as Camera 12 Cinemas on June 18, 2004 with a reduced seating capacity of 2,100. It was closed September 9, 2016 and converted into office & retail use with a miniature golf course.
