Cinerama closes in August for 60 days of Upgrades…


Paul Allen will close his Cinerama Theatre for two months beginning Aug. 30 to add 3-D capability and digital sound upgrades.

Allen bought the historic movie theater at 2100 Fourth Ave. in downtown Seattle 12 years ago. Officials at Allen’s Vulcan Inc. management firm wouldn’t give an exact cost for the upgrades, but according to spokesman David Postman, “the entire project, which includes technical upgrades, some refurbishing of interior and exterior, etc., is a multimillion-dollar project.”
