Walked by the theatre the other day and they were hard at work installing new carpet in the lobby, and possibly throughout.
The 1956 city guide for the area lists it at 3089 Ventura Boulevard.
Some old crotchety crank confirms the theory that Thousand Oaks Boulevard used to be called Ventura Boulevard: View link
Current GoogleMaps puts the address where the entrance to a shopping complex is now. I think it’s safe to say that the Acorn has gone to the old oak grove in the sky.
I wondered when this one would show up in the index. As listed in the city directory, the Acorn was supposedly located on Ventura Boulevard in Thousand Oaks but there is no Ventura Boulevard that I could find. It’s an entirely different theatre from the Melody. I’ll get the street address when I’m back in my office. I’ve been wondering where the building is for a long time now.
Just another parking lot now.
I read a post on a Facebook profile reminiscing about the Santa Ynez area and it stated that the “movie theatre, bowling alley and gas station were on Alisal starting from the Bit-O-Denmark going toward Mission Drive.” Looking at GoogleMaps, the bowling alley is definitely gone, as is the gas station, so I think the Mission was demolished. However, since it’s such a tiny theatre, it could be something like the Alpine Theatre in similarly-Eurocentric Alpine Village in Torrance – not demolished, just hidden.
The Conejo Village Shopping Center is now known as Janss Marketplace. Its theatre is the Mann 9 – possibly built within the old Fox Conejo Twin? The Janss address is 275 North Moorpark Road East.
Nice. Throwing someone’s momentary confusion back in their face with a lame imitation of their post. You stay classy, hdtv267!
Operating at LACMA since May of 1965 at least.
Opened August 19, 1992. Originally announced as an AMC Theatre.
“Born to Raise Hell,” one of the most violent gay roughies, had its West Coast premiere here on November 26, 1975.
So what’s the latest, RevDORK?
Theatre’s all boarded up now.
Built in 1991 and operated by Landmark ever since.
Judging from that photograph, the address is 16856 C Street.
Opened 1959, accordingly to this rather informative 2005 article: View link
Any idea what year this theatre opened?
