Landmark Theatres’ Embacadero Center Cinemas will be temporarily closed beginning June 28 to undergo massive renovations.
Beginning on Friday, June 28 Embarcadero Center Cinemas will be closed as renovations begin on the location. While some specifics of the renovations are still murky, like the re-opening date which is expected to be around mid-November, what is known is that the indie film hub will be fully brought into the new century. It’s biggest theater will be converted into stadium seating (whether other theaters receive the same treatment remains to be seen) but all seating will be upgraded regardless.
Steve Indig, Senior Regional Publicist for Landmark Theatres in the Bay Area, says that they will obtain a beer and wine license and that the ticket booth will be knocked out to make room for a wine lounge. In addition to a complete cosmetic makeover, set to include an updated concession stand with LED screens as well as print-at-home and mobile ticketing, he also notes “as construction approaches, some plans are still in flux.” The specifics of the upgrades will be updated as they become available but hurry up for one last experience at the old theater– their final normally scheduled day will be this Thursday, June 27.
