totoroisacinephile commented about Regal UA Colorado Center Stadium 9 & IMAX on Feb 14, 2024 at 1:53 pm

Opened sometime in 1998 by United Artists Theatres. Taken over by Regal in late 2002 when Regal, UA and Edwards merged to form the Regal Entertainment Group. The theater began showing THEATRICAL feature films in their IMAX auditorium in 2003. Goes by “Regal UA Colorado Center” on the Regal website and many other websites, but is referred to as “Colorado Center Stm 9 & IMAX” on the Regal app. Additionally, each auditorium has…

Auditorium 1 - 221 seats | Auditorium 2 - 236 seats | Auditorium 3 - 416 seats | Auditorium 4 - 102 seats | Auditorium 5 - 97 seats | Auditorium 6 - 433 seats | Auditorium 7 - 228 seats | Auditorium 8 - 205 seats | Auditorium 9 (IMAX) - 363 seats

In general, there are about 2,301 seats in the theater.

Showtime listings on the day of closure, my guess is that Wonka had the latest showtime at the theater before it closed.

totoroisacinephile commented about Regal UA Denver Pavilions & RPX on Feb 13, 2024 at 9:58 am

Opened sometime in November 1998 by United Artists Theatres. Taken over by Regal in late 2002 when Regal, UA and Edwards merged to form the Regal Entertainment Group. Retrofitted in the mid-2010s to include recliners in all auditoriums, alongside an RPX. In 2019, a 4DX was added.

Additionally, it now goes by “Denver Pavilions Stadium 15 & RPX” according to the Regal app, but the Regal website and Fandango (alongside many other websites) refer it to as “Regal UA Denver Pavilions & RPX”. So, choose wisely!

totoroisacinephile commented about Regal Fiesta Stadium 16 on Feb 12, 2024 at 11:04 am

Actually opened on May 31st, 1996 by Act III-Santikos Theatres, and was originally called “Fiesta Trails Theatres”. The theater was taken over by Regal in 1998 when Act III was folded into Regal. This was initially supposed a 12 screen multiplex, but AMC had opened a location nearby and in retaliation, Act III/Santikos raised the screen count to 16.

And no, for those wondering what the theater is in the background, it is NOT the Gateway, but rather the Lloyd Center, up in Portland, Oregon.

totoroisacinephile commented about Sunset Station Stadium 13 & IMAX on Feb 12, 2024 at 9:00 am

Actually opened on May 10th, 1996 by Act III Theatres. Alongside other Act III properties at the time, it was taken over by Regal in 1998 when Act III and Regal merged. Renovated somewhere in the mid-2000s to include stadium seating in all auditoriums and a more modern look for the lobby and concession stand, with an IMAX screen being installed on December 19th, 2008. In the mid-2010s (early-2016, perhaps?), the auditoriums were retrofitted for recliners.

totoroisacinephile commented about Brenden Theatres Las Vegas 14 & IMAX at the Palms Casino Resort on Feb 12, 2024 at 8:52 am

The IMAX screen at this theater is the only theater in Vegas to have a 1.43 IMAX screen, but problem is, the projectors are STILL xenons, therefore it can only open up to 1.90 and unfortunately enough, go up to 2K resolution. Not sure if Brenden will ever plan to replace the projectors for laser capabilities anytime soon.

totoroisacinephile commented about Alderwood Stadium 7 & RPX on Feb 12, 2024 at 8:37 am

Forgot to add on, the theater (alongside other operating Act IIIs at the time) was taken over by Regal Cinemas in 1998 when Act III and Regal merged, with Regal phrasing out the Act III name and rebranding Act III’s locations to Regals instead.

totoroisacinephile commented about Alderwood Stadium 7 & RPX on Feb 9, 2024 at 9:23 pm

Opened in 1986 by Luxury Theatres, and was taken over in 1989 by Act III Theatres when they acquired Luxury. The theater underwent extensive remodeling in 2004 to include a new entrance, look, and stadium seating (in all of the auditoriums). In 2010, the Alderwood became one of the first Regal locations to feature an RPX when auditorium 1 was retrofitted for it, and in 2016, was retrofitted once more, now including recliners in all the auditoriums.

Oh, and the theater now goes by “Alderwood Stadium 7 & RPX”, according to the Regal app.

Originally a United Artists theatre, and was taken over by Regal when Regal, UA and Edwards merged to form Regal Entertainment Group in late 2002. Regal sold it off to AMC in June 2010, and was later renovated in 2014 with recliners, digital projection, and a new “look” (that’s just the same as the others).

Yes, plans emerged back in July. The theater and casino site, alongside the Fiesta Rancho site adjacent to the Texas Station are looking to be redeveloped into a mix of commercial and residential uses, such as housing, a sports complex, a shopping center and a hotel.

totoroisacinephile commented about Beverly Theater on Jan 29, 2024 at 8:44 pm

It’s about time Vegas finally got a proper indie theater (rest in peace to the Village Square). The Beverly is a great addition, but it’s few downsides are a huge turn off for me. For example, the rereleases and indie content the Beverly gets are one of the main reasons to go, not to mention the phenomenal 4K (laser, I assume) projector they use, the 7.1 sound system, and the snack assortments they feature. However, a huge turn off for me are the flimsy armrests on the seats, the stale and WAY too salty popcorn, and the smaller than average screen. It’s a great theater, but a few adjustments could easily skyrocket it to even higher levels. I’d definitely recommend going if they’re showing a once in a lifetime film. If not, and if they are showing something else that is also being shown at another theater in the city, I’d rather just go over there instead.

Remodeled and rebranded into a Regal Cinemas location sometime in the early 2020s not long after Cineworld acquired Regal and gave their flagship theatres a makeover.
