My all-time favorite experience here was watching Scream 2 opening night. I guess that was their picture project so they had someone dressed as Ghostface taking pictures with customers. It was crazy having a packed house, just like in the opening scene of the movie.

I used to work there in 1997 and the people I worked with made the experience amazing. It was real cool to watch Scream 2 a couple of days before release but working the opening night was a nightmare. I’ll always remember everyone I worked with and I miss the theater.

This opened as UA The Movies on June 12th, 1987. Grand opening ad in the photo section. More to come.

I used to go to this theater a lot as a kid. The final movies i can remember watching here were Resident Evil and Spider-Man both in spring 2002. This theater closed right around the time Century 20 Daly City was opening.

Nice enough theater. I hated the management, tho.

This theater was short lived if I remember correctly. It was built in the late 80’s and was closed in 2002.

When I was a manager with UATC in Santa Cruz and San Jose the late 80s, this was where we had to go for our manager meetings. I hated going there for a variety of reasons, mostly because the theatre had no soul. The only thing I remotely liked about the place was those long hallways that separated the lobby from the auditoriums. It wasn’t done for aesthetic reasons, I know, but they did drown out the cacophony from the hub.

I knew this theatre wouldn’t last when the district offices moved from the Metro Center to the theatre in Emeryville, which also robbed me of my nice drive up Highway 1 from Santa Cruz into the city.
