Cinema West Clover Cinema 4
Cloverdale, CA, USA
The newly remodeled marquee and front entrance of the Clover.
Looking good with the neon working!
The lobby here is a bit cramped for a 4-plex, but it gets the job done.
Another view of the lobby.
The Snack Bar at the Clover.
The #1 booth: Simplex 1050 and 5-Star on CFS SX2000 console.
Due to a design error with the stadium seating, the projector had to be
elevated almost two feet higher to allow the projection beam to clear patron's
heads in the back three rows.
Another view of the #1 console showing the hole that was cut into the
ceiling to allow the console to elevate.
Another view of #1. This machine is a bear to thread, as stepladders
are required as well as a couple of helper rollers between the platter
and the top reel arm.
Back view of #1 and its CFS Super Platter. Note the original portholes
from the single screen's booth on the left wall.
The rewind benches and platter in #1.
