This theatre, the UA Valley Plaza 6, was known as UA Movies from 1979 to 1995 and was located at 6355 Bellingham Avenue, Valley Plaza, North Hollywood CA 91606. It was equipped to show 70mm films as well.

Lawrence Tierney could be found in the center of the very back row whenever they’d do midnight screenings of “Reservoir Dogs” (a habit he kept until his death).

Theatre still abandoned – stuck behind lots of plywood boards currently and unless one does one’s Human Fly thing, impossible to see into.

A long time ago: “plinfesty > Jun 5, 2003 9:28 PM EDT
The first 70mm attraction at the Village was "2001: A Space Odyssey” in the fall of 1974."

Seating 2400, this theatre was also known at alternate points as the AMC Hollywood Galaxy 6 and the GCC Galaxy 6. I saw “Billy Madison” here when it first opened.

It’s next to the Knitting Factory in that ill-fated complex (which isn’t doing too well itself) – are the fitness branch and pharmacy actually in the physical space of the theatre itself?

Initially a silent film theatre, this theatre was also known as the Chinese Theatre, and Novelty Theatre (both mid-1940s). It sat 248 as the Novelty.

As you walk into this theatre, look up and you can see where they knocked out the projection booth – the door leading to it is still there!

Will someone please settle the “which theatre was the X Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard” debate once and for all?

MagicLantern commented about Highland Theatre on Sep 22, 2004 at 3:36 pm

Slightly Moorish in style, this theatre seated 1450 before its triplexing. If you go past the projection rooms (which are nearly always open due to how hot they get) and up the stairs to the second-story bathrooms, there’s a doorway leading into what must have been the balcony, which may be used as storage space or some other such.

MagicLantern commented about Grand Theater on Sep 22, 2004 at 3:03 pm

This theatre was located at 6177 Beach Boulevard and may have been called the Valuskis Theatre at one point. A long time ago on a Cinema Treasures board far far away, someone wrote: “manwithnoname > May 27, 2003 8:33 PM EDT
The theatre was demolished some years ago. Another reason for its demise was competition from the Studio Adult Theatre just down the street. Where the Pussycat was dirty and staff unfriendly, the Studio was just the opposite. It, too, has closed and is now a retail store. ”

The building still stands but it’s currently being gutted and repurposed for something vaguely religious.
