Did you go out each time and buy a ticket,or hang around inside until the next show started up.

I saw more movies at the old Aurora Cinema than any other theater in Seattle! Back in 1981 (when movies were still worth going to) I must have seen 10 movies that year alone at the AC! It’s funny some people don’t care for this theater because I thought it was a COOL theater! In 1987, I saw PREDATOR 3 times there!

The cinema was demolished in 2006 and is the site of a big condo project. It was a pretty dreadful theater even when it was new. No masking, so flat films showed centered on a wide, white screen. (Masking was added in its final years). The design was so poor that when GCC was forced to add stereo to its one remaining large house in order to play “Return of the Jedi” it had to position the left and right speakers outside the perimeter of the screen (as it also did at Everett Mall).

I think the theatre has been razed.

After General Cinema put the Aurora Cinema I II III out of its misery in 2000, the Cinema Grill operation did a cosmetic remodel and operated it for a short time as a cinema/restaurant. The theater still remains vacant and is for sale.
