Acadia NB new cinemas:

Ciné-Centre Caraquet 3:
http://www.radio-canada.ca/regions/atlantique/2005/10/28/001-cinemas.shtml
This cinema is owned by the Cine-Centre circuit, which has cinemas in Baie Comeau and Sept Iles QC.

also this new one:
the Cinema Peninsule
http://www.cinemapeninsule.ca/cinema.htm

These articles are in French. Text below:
Tout est prêt pour accueillir vendredi soir les premiers clients du Ciné-Centre annexé au Centre culturel de Caraquet. Depuis la démolition du théâtre Bellevue en 2002, les cinéphiles devaient se déplacer à Bathurst, à près d'une heure de Caraquet, pour voir des films sur grand écran.

« Les Nord-Américains en général sont friands de cinéma. La région ici en a été privée pendant plusieurs années », a rappelé le promoteur Claude Rémillard.

Le complexe compte trois salles équipées à la fine pointe de la technologie. Elles peuvent accueillir au total 280 personnes. La programmation sera variée.

« On va offrir des films en français, en anglais, des films pour enfants, des films plus pour les adolescents, des films d'horreur, d'action », a précisé M. Rémillard.


Claude Rémillard

Les amateurs de films de répertoire auront aussi leur place. Le promoteur, qui exploite déjà deux cinémas sur la Côte-Nord du Québec, prévoit déjà la tenue d'événements spéciaux comme un festival de films étrangers.

« On a déjà un festival à Baie-Comeau dont c'est la dix-huitième année cette année. Puis, celui de Sept-Îles, on est à la quinzième année. Alors, on a du métier dans ce domaine-là, puis on va probablement organiser des soirées d'horreur, des événements plus spéciaux pour les jeunes, des visionnements de nuit ou des choses comme ça au fil des semaines », a expliqué M. Rémillard.

La concurrence n'est pas loin

En janvier 2006, le Ciné-Centre ne sera plus seul dans la Péninsule acadienne. Un autre complexe de trois salles, le Cinéma Péninsule, ouvrira ses portes à Tracadie-Sheila.


Ronald Losier

Les cinéphiles seront donc comblés après des années de disette. Selon Ronald Losier, président du Cinéma Péninsule, plus de divertissement rime avec meilleure qualité de vie pour les habitants de la région.

« Ça veut dire que ces personnes-là, comme à la grandeur du Nouveau-Brunswick, vont avoir accès à un cinéma et à des films de qualité en français et en version originale », a souligné M. Losier.

« L'offre de films va être encore plus grande. C'est certain que ça va arriver que nous aurons les mêmes films, mais probablement que chacun de notre côté on va essayer de se distinguer en présentant des films différents. Le grand gagnant va être le spectateur qui va voir une plus grande variété », a ajouté M. Rémillard.

La population de la Péninsule acadienne aura donc le choix. Un engouement pour le septième art est prévisible. Les promoteurs souhaitent que l'attrait envers la nouveauté se transforme en une réelle habitude de fréquenter les salles de cinéma.

I looked at the movie listings for Harkins. They are showing some really good older movies too. All the Spiderman movies, Batman Begins, Superman, Superman Returns, and all the X-Men movies!

Has anyone gone there yet? I wonder if it is a nice place.

I'm pretty sure it looks just like all the other newer Harkins. Check out the Northfield 18 photos that were just posted for Colorado.

That Cine-Capri is a thing of beauty. With CURTAINS to boot!

The Chino Hills is a smaller complex. I interviewed for it and they told me the largest theatre was to be no bigger than 300 seats. I will have to check it out myself.

Just add or subtract 12. [Smile]

But I can imagine how much fun that Cicero theatre would be to manage. Not for me thanks.

The new AMC Rockaway 16 in New Jersey is set to officially open Friday November 17.

It was planned and designed by Loews but it opens with AMC signage. The design is identical to Loews Alderwood 16 Lynnwood, WA (minus the front staircases). Notice the Loews Search Light Logos on the front of the concession stands and on the outside of the building. It has stadium seating and Dolby Digital (since SDDS is no longer installed in any new theaters).

Really Long Link

I think the final Loews-designed theatre will be the AMC Atlantic Times Square 14 in Monterey Park. It just broke ground. It will be interesting to see it when it opens in 2008.

AMC Westgate 20 in Glendale, AZ also opens today according the AMC website. It also is a Loews Design with AMC signage. It looks very much like the other AMC opening today. The construction schematics list the building as Loews Flagship Cinema. There is a construction slideshow at http://www.westgateaz.com and you can see the theater in Image 3.

All the new AMC Theatres seem like they now exclusively use Dolby Digital EX in all auditoriums.

Will this theater kill the Century Drive-In in Glendale?

Actually, the theatre is showing in Images 4 & 8...not 3.

No. I doubt it. Drive-Ins can play the same movies as walk-ins and most people come to the drive-in for a value and to enjoy a film in the privacy of their car without bothering or being bothered by other customers.
