All the Brenden Theatres I can find photos of (including this one) have the name Brenden Theatres on their marquee, rather than the names of the towns in which they are located. The local names appear to be used only in advertising and on the company web site, to differentiate between the various Brenden Theatres locations. For example, the Modesto Bee lists this theater under the name Brenden Modesto 18.

This theatre was designed by the Westlake, California firm Behr Browers Architects. The firm also designed the Brenden Theatres in Las Vegas and the Brenden Theatres in Vacaville, California. They may have designed other Brenden multiplexes as well, but I’ve been unable to confirm this. This page says that the project architect for the Brenden Modesto 18 was Andrew E. Althaus. I don’t know if that means he was the lead designer, or just the project manager, though.

Photos of the Brenden Modesto 18 and the Brenden Theatres in Las Vegas are featured in the portfolio on display at the Behr Browers Architects web site. Behr Browers also designed the six screen addition to the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, and the renovation of the Criterion Theatre in Santa Monica, California, among other cinema projects.

Very nice Brenden cinema with huge curved screens and the proper masking that works in this Modesto CA site. Great neon outside and some of the best sound you will ever find in a theatre. The help was over the top and very well trained and the people cleaning screen #16 before I saw a movie this past weekend came out with their brooms and trash cans and thanked everyone for waiting and hope they enjoy the movie. Just another nice touch you won’t find at other big theatre groups these days. Check It out If you are ever in Modesto along with the State Theatre a few blocks away.
