Century Riverpark 16 To Open

Construction on a movie theatre by Riverpark was put on hold when the recession hit. But Centura Riverpark 16's opening is a sign of better economic times to come. Century Riverpark 16 is located at The Collection on Seaglass Way. Other shops and restaurants are slated to follow next month and next year. James Meredeth, the Vice President of Marketing and Communications calls it a "next gen" theatre. Meredeth says that's another way of saying that it has the latest technology. Meredeth took KEYT on a private behind the scenes tour. The films arrive on hard drives in protective cases. I-T employees have replaced traditional projectionists. And move over IMAX, the theatre has an XD Extreme Digital Auditorium. For a few dollars more you can see 007 and other new releases in comfortable love seats. The experience will be difficult to duplicate in at home. And besides going to the movies is half the fun. The grand opening is Friday. And there is a cafeteria that is high tech too. A smart phone app will help you pay and receive discounts. It will also silence your phone before the movie begins. KEY News will have more details at 6:30 p.m. <a href="http://www.cinemark.com" target="_blank">Cinemark Century Theatres</a> Share your comments about this story with us on the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/KEY3News" target="_blank"> KEY News Facebook page.</a> <a href=" https://twitter.com/KEY3News" target="_blank">Connect with KEY News on Twitter</a>

    Orcutt Family Starts Petition to Change County Ordinance

    An Orcutt family is fighting to keep their dogs from being euthanized, and is now trying to change a county ordinance on aggressive dogs. The family has an online petition spreading their message on the internet in an effort to get the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisor's attention.

    Peggy Henning remembers the day her family welcomed Daisy and Duke into their family like it was yesterday.

    "They immediately just became part of the family," said Henning. "They were very friendly with all the guests we had coming over."

    But things changed when Daisy and Duke got loose. They liked chasing cats.

    "Dogs are pack animals and that is their default instinct," said Henning. "If they are bonded or litter mates, it intensifies that. They would get out of the confines of our house or yard and this instinct would come to the surface."
