Looks like the building is being maintained and kept clean.
Looks like the building is being kept up.
I didn’t know that Far Away Entertainment had gotten rid of this theater. The Bremerton area is way over-screened now.
I’ve heard the mall itself has structural problems.
1924 - 1977 Zabel Theatre Company (Ed Zabel, Hobe Zabel, and Art Zabel).
1977 - 1982 Crow-Woodbridge Enterprises (Andy Crow and Marshall Woodbridge).
1982 Theater leased to Gary Fine for one year.
1983 - 1985 Theater leased to Tom Moyer’s Luxury Theatres of Portland, Oregon (Tom Moyer, senior).
1985 - 1990 Theater is co-owned by Tom Moyer, junior and Andy Crow.
1990 - 2010 Theater leased to Olympia Film Society.
2010 Olympia Film Society buys the theater from Andy Crow.
The neon arrow at the bottom of the sign was saved by the late Andy Crow. The current whereabouts of it is unknown.
A new canopy is being built over the sidewalk in front of the theater. A new framework and drainage is being erected right now. This new canopy will match as closely as possible, the original 1924 canopy.
Looks like a nice theater. I hope it can reopen.
The entire town of Greenville, California was destroyed by a wildfire on August 4, 2021.
2013 was the year of the big push to convert theaters from film to video projection. It cost the exhibitors very big money to convert to video. At the time it was around $150,000 per screen. Nowadays, plenty of used video projectors for theaters are on the used equipment market for around $20,000 to $30,000. If only this theater could have held out a while longer. It still seems to be in excellent condition aside from some landscaping/brush cutting work.
Apparently, Regal leases/rents many of their theaters and does not own them outright.
Asbestos has since been removed throughout the building. The lower booth had an Altec-Lansing sound system.
This sign was on the exterior doors to the boiler room.
Anyone have pictures of the theater interior?
When did this theater close? This was a nice theater and located right next to the freeway with easy access.
Originally was going to have stadium seating, but opened with conventional sloped floor seating.
This is an excellent theater to see a movie at. Excellent picture and sound.
The lobby has a portion of an actual Boeing airplane suspended from the ceiling. This is definitely an Act 3 Theaters design.
While there was certainly plenty of room on the property to expand the theater, it never happened.
This was Regal Cinemas' first theater in Washington state.
Yes, it did start as an Act 3 Theaters design/layout.
I wish there were more pictures of this theater.
It had the typical Tom Moyer Luxury Theatres motif inside. Yellow, orange, and brown Soundfold drapes on the walls of the “auditoriums”.
Looks like RCA “Old Style” junction boxes on the speaker poles.
Anything happen with the Lakewood Historical Society and them moving into this theater?
