The 5 plex is still open and operated by Pacific as either a move over theatre from their Galleria 16 about a mile away, or art product does open here as well.

This theatre was operated by AMC when GCC was sold to AMC. AMC closed the theatre when they sold the 5-plex to Pacific Theatres.

Tina, show schedules are only made at AMC about a week in advance. You wouldnt know till usually the Thursday before the the weekend.
Also, look at a site that has a list of release dates to give you an idea of what is opening that weekend you will be there.

The Kwo-Hwa 2 was located on Valley Blvd and not Las Tunas. Today the site is a lot.

Im pretty sure that the empty lot is where this theatre would have been if you look on terraserver.

ezfave, when did you work at this theatre? I was working there for about 2 years, from 1998-2000. I put a lot into the theatre and still have a picture of the Opening day staff.

Thanks Ken. Mind you this is less than a mile from the west theatres on Hollywood Blvd (El Capitan / Chinese / Hollywood)

Also, go to www.terraserver.microsoft.com

Enter 7425 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA

The Oriental would be where the big red canopy over the sidewalk is.

There is another building just two over, would be about 7415 Sunset that looks like it could be a theatre. When visiting, it has something that looks like it could be a stagehouse, but is shorter and a wee bit wider.

Also, when they retro'ed the building for quakes, they did such a bad job that there are several Bolts and Rods that go from one wall to another to support it.

Ken, I drove around to the back of the store. And I saw what looked like it could be a theatre. I was like, hmm…..I took some crappy pics on my cell phone if you would like to see, just email me.

So when I walked in the store I saw the shape and was like…hmm.

When my friend walked to the back room where the vintage guitars are, I was awestruck. Its the full screen area, from floor to ceiling.

What they did was add two side rooms next to the theatre to make the guitar center building bigger. I wonder what is behind all the fake wall in front. Unfortunately we may never know,

But definitely, this theatre is still existant.

I went into Guitar Center today. If you go in the store down a level to the acoustic room, and into the vintage room, not only can you see where the screen was located, but there is still some ornamental moulding on the ceiling. this is the only room where you can see this at, since drop ceilings were added to the other part.

Oddly enough, if you go upstairs in the Drum Store area, it takes you in part of what was the projection room.

Definitely a site to see.

The theatre was pristine when AMC ran it and was their Orange County flagship. I sat in numerous presentations there, even as a dollar house, that were tip top and great to watch. If I remember correctly, THX was in one of the auditoriums.

I took a tour of this theatre. The basement level (yes basement) holds the receiving room for the kitchen and offices. There is a huge employee breakroom down there with a private bathroom.

There are two elevators down to the basement, either through the regular lobby elevator or by the freight elevator in the kitchen.

Third level mezzanie has the entrance for handicapped to the big houses as well as the two side projection rooms.

There is a fourth level where the upper projection room is for the two main houses.

Driving by, construction crews are starting to gut out the theatre. Is demolition soon?
