BIG Cinemas Towne 3
BIG Cinemas Towne 3 in San Jose
The Towne 3 Theatre was opened in 1990 by the Camera Cinemas chain after an extensive renovation of an earlier 1920's movie house. The restoration created a 600 seat, three-screen theatre.

The main theater, which seats over 300, houses a Grand Wurlitzer organ which, until recently, was used for showings of silent films.

Sadly, the screenings were a financial dissappointment for Camera Cinemas and were shuttered with the final screening of Fitz Lang's "Metropolis" on New Year's Eve 2000. The theater is currenly looking for a white knight to save the film series. The Towne 3 Theatre has urged patrons and donors to email them with any knowledge of someone who may be interested in donating money to their cause.

Despite that setback, the Towne 3 Theatre continues to show movies and is a small, but elegant venue. In late-2009 it was taken over by BIG Cinemas San Jose.
