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.
Known as the San Fernando Theatre from 1935 through 1961 at least.
This theatre, restored and now operated by Metropolitan, reopens today with a screening of “Chicken Little” – replete with Dolby Digital, cup holders and 209 seats.
It must be the same theatre, Ken.
Now that CompUSA is closing all GoodGuys stores in California, this building is soon to be vacant.
The address of this was 448 West Baseline. As of early 1980, The Meralta, Criterion, Norwalk Twin and Holiday Theatres became 49Â¢ 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.
This theatre was located at 1020 South Gallatin Pike.
This was known as the Solari Theatre as of February 5, 1980.
The Continental (formerly the Encore) was a Laemmle theatre as of July 4, 1980.
The Carriage Square was an SRO theatre as of May 18, 1980.
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?
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.
Further Villa Glen confusion here: /theaters/2182/
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.
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.
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.
