Pretty neat that they show classic movies, but at full matinee price? Not sure I'd be willing to payRead More almost $8/person for the big screen experience.

Are you sure of the date and day of the free concert on the plaza

I am a senior citizen Gregory Gardener. I remember and miss the days when the Dome and the mallRead More were great places to go. The holiday mall was filled with artists and vendors, from whom I bought many a gift at Christmastime. I regularly shopped the other businesses attached to the mall. I do not drive to Berkeley anymore, and will really miss the ease of attending great movies in the Dome. I will not restate my belief that we DO NOT need another sporting goods store.

I agree with B.J. I have used the old inside passage which was cool in the summer and bought itemsRead More from the Christmas time fair. I miss the religious goods place and the restaurant with the live fish. The dome was my place to see a movie without being crowded. I saw many movies there the last of which was "Milk".

People defending SyWest as property owners--they did not take care of their property. CineArts madeRead More sure the interior of the building was taken care of, comfortable, clean, aesthetically pleasing, and running properly. SyWest let the exterior fall apart so that people would find it an eye-sore and wouldn't care when it was torn down. And it worked. The majority of comments here are defending the actions of SyWest, which did not meet the needs of the community. The community doesn't need a big-box sporting-goods store, having more than 30 within a five-mile radius of the theater. SyWest needs that. It's speedy money for them. The City Council did not inform the public adequately about the demolition of the Dome. The agendas for those planning meetings were vague and did not even mention the Dome, or demolition. And further, the Domes that are located in San Jose are now going through a similar process, but San Jose has a very active and effective historical society, so their fight is starting early. They want to preserve historical buildings that reflect the character and growth of their city--something Pleasant Hill can barely do now, having maybe three buildings or sites (at best) left to preserve. Don't think that just because a building was built in your lifetime that it isn't historic. It's not like anyone is building domed theaters now or in the future. They were truly of their time and increasingly rare. It was our movie palace, and it was worth fighting for. If you don't think it was and you welcome Dick's, then I don't expect you to understand.
