Pollack Tempe Cinemas It’s hard to believe that Pollack Tempe Cinemas was once just another small, drab movie theater in danger of replaced by the newest megaplex. What a difference a few years make. Once Pollack management took over, they completely redesigned the theater to better reflect the Golden Age of Hollywood cinema. Autographed headshots, life-size cutouts of celebrities, and vintage movie posters all contribute to the classical vibe that permeates the theater today. Though most theaters with this sort of eclectic flair survive on a steady diet of indie and foreign flicks, Pollack’s movies are generally blockbusters and other films with mainstream appeal. On any given weekend, the theater attracts thousands of guests eager to enjoy second-run films at steep discounts and pose for pictures next to life-sized models of their favorite movie stars or second favorite key grips.
