The Sebastopol 9 Cinemas in Sebastopol, California was opened in 1995 by the Cinema West chain, but the theater now has a new owner and a new name to go with it. The Rialto Cinemas - Sebastopol appears to have opened to the public under its new owner and name on May 4, 2012.
Moviegoers who enjoy independent movies may recognize the new owner Rialto Cinema's name, as it owned the Rialto Cinemas Lakeside (now the Summerfield Cinemas) on the other side of Santa Rosa until 2010 (read the related Journal Article).
The Press Democrat in Santa Rosa published an article on April 28th about the transition of the theater's ownership and what kind of fare audiences can expect:
Almost two years after Ky Boyd surrendered the lease to his Rialto Cinemas Lakeside independent-film theater in Santa Rosa and vowed to find another venue, he is purchasing the Sebastopol Cinemas.
“We're going to present a full spectrum of cinema” at what will become the reborn Rialto Cinemas in downtown Sebastopol, Boyd said.
The nine-screen theater will offer the sorts of art, foreign, classic and documentary films he showed for a decade on five screens in the theater on Santa Rosa's Summerfield Road, across from Howarth Park. He'll add mainstream and family movies in the league of “Moneyball,” “The Help” and “The Ides of March.”
