Zedfla, heartfelt thanks for maintaining it and making it available for a public who appreciates and enjoys it as much as your congregation does.

They’re screening films now, with some amount of renovations going on inside. So, it’s open again.

It must be the same theatre, Ken.

Now that CompUSA is closing all GoodGuys stores in California, this building is soon to be vacant.

MagicLantern commented about Studio Theatre on Nov 2, 2005 at 5:28 pm

The address of this was 448 West Baseline. As of early 1980, The Meralta, Criterion, Norwalk Twin and Holiday Theatres became 49¢ theatres; by mid-March of that year, the Uptown in Pasadena and Studio Theatre did, too.

lostmemory, that photograph must’ve been taken many years ago – the conquistador/native mural is long-gone, and someone had installed a window about halfway up the left side of the marquee. Additionally, the Oxnard Theatre was known as the Fox Oxnard from 1969 to 1980. I was vaguely aware of it being in downtown Oxnard but never went inside before it was demolished.

They absolutely did show Spanish porn, as of the early 1980s. So there.

The one that’s now a market / swap meet is the one whose tower can be seen from the highway. It’s a Quonset hut structure.

Is this the theatre that’s now a market / swap meet?

MagicLantern commented about Alpine Theatre on Sep 7, 2005 at 11:16 pm

This should just be listed as “closed”, because it’s certainly still there – booth, screen, auditorium and all.

This theatre features prominently in the film “Fade to Black” (1980).

The Berry Gordy film in question is “The Last Dragon”.

Incredibly small screens and extortionately high ticket prices. The GCC Beverly Connection across the street is completely gone now, too.

For the record, I drove past this building on Saturday and there was no fence around it or any other sign demolition was to begin today.

MagicLantern commented about Cine Coliseum on Aug 19, 2005 at 7:40 pm

This is a huge, gorgeous cinema right off Las Ramblas heading north on the way to Casa-Museu Gaudi. The marquee covers the breadth of the building outside and it looks very, very old. We were there in April and, while we never got the chance to see what was playing at the time, we knew that it would’ve been a total experience.

Was this theatre known at one point as the Alpine Theatre? The Kim Sing is at the corner of Alpine and Figueroa.

MagicLantern commented about Kim Sing Theatre on Jul 17, 2005 at 2:58 pm

It’s a smaller sign, and they’re up to “im Sing Theatre” now, but there’s now way they’re going to make this into a single-family residence – unless that family happens to be the Manson Family; it’s terribly tacky and drab, with security gates where the walls use to be.
