Aero Theatre Reopens Tonight!
SANTA MONICA, CA — The Aero Theatre reopens tonight! Closed since April 2003, the Aero has undergone a $1 million renovation effort by its new operators, the American Cinematheque, who will bring their programming prowess to this popular Santa Monica staple.
According to Variety, “Besides renewing the projection and sound systems, the single-screen theater’s capacity was reduced from 600 seats to 400 in order to install bigger, more comfortable seats. The new screen, which is 44 feet wide and 17 feet high, is three times the size of the original. A new concession stand was also installed.”
Director Paul Weitz will be on hand tonight for the theater’s first show: a screening of Weitz’s new film, “In Good Company,” starring Dennis Quaid, Topher Grace, and Scarlett Johansson.
