Minaret Cinemas is D'Place

The Minaret Cinemas opened in 1994. This two screen cinema is located in a strip mall in Mammoth Lakes, California. It used to be a flat floor cinema many years ago when it opened; not sure if it has been upgraded or not as I have not been back in several years. On March 1, 2019 it was taken over by D'Place Entertainment and still plays first run movies.

Could this be the cinema that opened as a single-screen house called the Plaza Theatre on Thanksgiving Day, 1978? The Plaza was the subject of a brief article in Boxoffice Magazine’s issue of February 5, 1979.

Located in a newly-developed shopping center called Sherman Plaza, the 300-seat Plaza Theatre was designed by the center’s architect, Bruce Kassler, with some input from the design department of the Filbert Company, a Glendale, California, theater services company that outfitted the new house.

I’ve been unable to find any later issues of Boxoffice mentioning a theater at Mammoth Lakes, so I don’t know if the Plaza was twinned and became the Minaret or not.

The Minaret Cinemas were opened in 1994 by Bill Walters, owner and operator of the Plaza Theatre since 1989. Walters retired in 2019, selling the house to D'Place Entertainment, who officially took over operation on March 1. A lengthy article about Walters' three decades in the local theater business published at the time of his retirement can be found on this page of the web site of the local newspaper, The Sheet.
