There are a couple of photo tours posted at http://www.cinematour.com/tour.php?db=us&id=7236 AMC assumed control of the Beverly Connection after the Pacific Theatres at The Grove had opened – the titles in the marquee shot consisting of move-overs or films Pacific Theatres took a pass on. It’s unclear when the General Cinemas photos were taken – both those and the AMC shots were most likely snapped on weekday afternoons – but, and absolutely no offense intended towards Scott Neff who snapped the GC-era images and for which we’d otherwise have no photographic images online from those years (and who has done tireless work taking pictures of cinemas across the US), they don’t capture the electric atmosphere of the Beverly Connection during its best times.

BevCon was a fun theatre to work. I got to work the relief shifts in the booth for a few years.

I know it’s happened to hundreds of multiplexes since the stadium-seating trend took hold, but I really felt sad when this particular theatre closed. I had only been there twice – on consecutive nights in March of 1996 to see ‘Flirting with Disaster’ and ‘Girl 6’ – but there was a vibe of excitement surrounding the theatre and the near-capacity crowds I saw those films with were really into them; I especially remember people roaring with laughter at ‘Flirting’ – a great comedy and the kind of audience that made the experience all that much more memorable.

Yes, it was. It was the nice one across from the Beverly Center.

This was the one across the street from the Beverly Center, wasn’t it?

Three of the theatres were equipped with 70MM projectors.
