Macerich: Don't demolish the Camelview Theater

      Tempe, AZ, United States

This theater is an architectural, cultural, and social monument to great movies in the Phoenix area.  I started this petition because I love seeing movies, and I love the movies they show at Camelview Theater.  By signing this petition, you support the continued existence of Camelview as an institution serving the Phoenix area. 

Steve Helm, Assistant Vice President, Property Management at Macerich
Don't demolish the Camelview Theater! It's a cultural and architectural icon and the Phoenix area would lose a great piece of its past if it was demolished.

      The Camelview is the ONLY theatre where I can guarantee finding a wonderful British/European film to see - where art, architecture and grand acting are available for the price of a movie ticket. This would be a terrible loss for a multitude of people. It's the last bastion of movie culture in our desert paradise. Please don't let it go.

      There's nothing like it! It's what movie theaters used to be and I miss that. The indie selection is part of it but it's a landmark.

      It's an important, historic part of Scottsdale!!!

      Because it's important to have a place that shows movies that aren't really available at the multiplex. Independent films are worth while and this theatre is a lovely place to showcase them.

      I've been watching indie and art house films here since I was in high school. Scottsdale and other cities in the area really need to do a better job of preserving historic buildings and venues. When tourists or new people come to down, do they say, "Hey, take me to the shiniest new mall with the biggest parking lot!"? No. Please don't be short-sighted about this.
