At one point, did this use to be an AMC theater in the late 80’s early 90’s? I remember the name you mentioned, “pacific 6 theaters” but from my memory, it was a lot bigger. Any thought(s)? Thanks in Advance :)

No, this was NEVER an AMC Theater. It was Pacific 6 as it started with six screens. Then three more were added during its final years.

I saw Return of the Jedi four times in that theater! Twice in the first year of its initial release (August 1983 and January 1984); during its 1985 re-release; and the Special Edition in 1997!

I can’t believe the not-too-far-away single screen Vogue theater (opened in 1945) outlived the Sweetwater Theater (opened in 1983) in business.

I remember watching Return Of The Jedi here. I was 12 years old. I remember during the scene in Jabba’s palace, the film burned and we had to continue the movie in another theater. I also remember this theater played Return Of The Jedi for more than a year.
