The cinema is a scaled-down version of the Hollywood Pacific Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. Located next to the glamourous Oriental Theater, a Blazing Tattoo shop and Vinewood's Von Crastenburg Hotel, the Doppler is contrastingly unremarkable and has obviously fallen on hard times.
It is available for purchase by Michael for $10,000,000 after the mission Nervous Ron, and generates a weekly profit of $132,200. Once bought, the player has the option to participate in side missions, including stopping an armed robbery and dropping leaflets across the city via airplane.
Welcome to the historic Doppler Cinema
Dear Mr. De Santa,
Please come in soon and catch a movie. On the house, of course!
- Once bought, the manager says that the player can watch movies for free now. However, no movies can actually be seen there (they can, however, be seen at the Oriental Theatre next door, though Michael still has to pay).
