The former SoCal/Movie Experience and Krikorian twelve plex, in Chino, has apparently reopened as the Chino Cinema$aver 12. They look to be operating as a mid run discount ($4.00), but I haven't been able to find any information on who is behind the theatre now or when it reopened.

Krikorian is running it apparently. I found this:

Even though you cannot find the location on the top as a choice. Interesting.

I wonder if Krikorian reopened it and is trying to operate the theatre as a seperate brand (i.e. they don't list the theatre on their site to avoid mixing discount with their "Premiere" brand); or, if they sublet to someone, who is paying to continue using Krikorian's infrastructure. Then again, the change might be so new that there are still some links and accouts that haven't been turned over.

In any case, it appears Krikorian has officially abandoned their long promoted plans to renovate and upgrade the theatre. I had expected their plans to change after Harkins opened, but I thought the Cinemark would make a discount move and Krikorian would close or limp along as yet another underperforming site in the chain.

And this theatre will be the first discount house in the LA area that has stadium seating.

So I had felt like going to the theater this week for a cheap film. Apparently they closed down back on the 31st of May.

From what I've heard, it's going to be converted in to a sporting goods store.

WOW! This brings back memories. The only house I ever owned was in Chino (residence not theatre) and at that time there were only two theatres in Chino - the Chino, a single screener on Central Avenue owned by the Anderson brothers out of Ontario, and a small Mexican theatre in the heart of town. I worked as a relief projectionist for IATSE Local 577 at the Chino.
