Camera Cinemas was thrilled in 2008 to re-open Camera 3 with a new concept that combines innovative specialized cinema, live comedy, and a contemporary urban eatery. We have partnered with ComedySportz and our new partners, Psycho Donuts, to reinvent the space into a truly unique entertainment destination unlike any other in the South Bay, mixing spunk, humor, resourcefulness, and great relationships in a hiply renovated downtown setting.
Camera 3 Cinema, known as the premiere South Bay venue for independent and foreign film for more than 20 years, temporarily closed in 2004 with the opening of our Camera 12 Cinema down the street. Continuing the tradition of providing unique and independent programming, Camera 3 re-opened in February 2008 with new Dolby Stereo SR sound systems in screens one and three, and pillow back chairs with upholstered arms and cup holders in screens two and three.
ON-SITE PARKING: Camera 3 is conveniently located on the first level of the Second & San Carlos Street Garage, located between S. Second and S. Third on E. San Carlos (entrances on both S. Second and S. Third sides). Bring your parking ticket with you to the box office to receive validation when you purchase a movie ticket.
