I remember seeing a Woody Allen DF (I believe at this theatre) back in 1987. The description seems accurate.
I always thought of that walk up type of seating as a balcony. There were a couple theatres I grew up with; Cinema on the Mall (SM) and Plitt Century Plaza (Century City) that had that type of seating. I’m pretty sure they considered them balconies, but I guess I am wrong.
Was there a theatre in the same area at one time called the Plaza? I remember seeing ‘ROUND MIDNIGHT in '86 at a theatre near the Paris which was showing A ROOM WITH A VIEW at the same time.
Great photos, glad to see the theatre still open and doing business. I remember seeing WHITE NIGHTS at the Ziegfield back in November 1985 and thought it was a great theatre then. I love walk up balconies like the Ziegfield has and the Plitt Century Plaza had. Most of the theatres I visited in my visits in ‘85, '86 and '87 in NYC are now sadly gone. Hopefully it will remain. L.A. has so few big screen single houses, but I guess I have no room to complain since NYC only has this screen remaining.
I’m happy to hear the positive comments. I hope to make it this weekend to see X MEN. I’ve actually been trying to get to the 6 Plex to see TRUE LEGEND. I don’t think the trailers being shown mean they are booking the films. Studios attach trailers to high profile films to be seen. My weekend visit to Arclight I noticed both GREEN LANTERN and HP7 are booked to show there.
I changed my profile from BRADE41 to BRADE48.
On Movie Tickets.com it is listed as The Chinese Theatre. Wouldn’t it be better to still call it Grauman’s Chinese? What else other than X-MEN is booked for this Summer? I’d like to go but not really into comic book movies. I feel I should go as much as possible before they change it to EVENT Center.
