EAGLE ROCK, CA — According to the newsletter from TERA (The Eagle Rock Association), Eagle Rock’s historic movie house, the Eagle Theater, is for sale. It is located at the southeast corner of Eagle Rock Boulevard and Yosemite Drive and is adjacent to several relatively new, thriving businesses such as Ballroom Blitz, Curves, The Blissful Soul, and the Oxy Cafe.
Eagle Rock is a district of L.A. situated right between Pasadena and Glendale, full of carefully tended homes from the ‘20s, '30s, '40s, and '50s that have doubled in value in the past few years. It’s a very tightknit community that is extremely supportive of all the restaurants and coffeehouses that seem to be opening on an almost weekly basis; there would be huge community support for this theater’s reopening.
“We Eagle Rockers would love to have our neighborhood movie house back,” says the newsletter. “It’s a great theater with newer seats, a big screen, and a sizeable stage for live productions. It is listed (we hear) for about $1.5 million. The listing agent is Scott Howard, and he can be reached at (323) 871-8585 for more details.”
