The AMC Alondra 6 – or the Alondra 6, as it was sometimes known – was open in 1974 and through 1990 at least. The address was 10802 Alondra Boulevard (at the 605 Freeway), Cerritos CA 90703-1502 and it had six screens.

Yes, that’s the building, LM. The acoustics in the rear of the building are still the same as they were during its time as a cinema.

Old comment from the Keystone Theatre entry that was retconned: Tom Jurado > Jan 2, 2004 13:33:16 AM EST
I talked to my dad yesterday and he said the Keystone Theater was located a half block west of Gless. That would put it between Gless and Clarence. He also said his sister Dora worked there and would sometimes get him and some of this brothers and sisters in free. He said sometimes Mr. Jones, the theater manager, would stop them and ask them where they were going and they would tell him that Dora said it was okay for them to go in (he’s got a million stories). The Keystone Theatre was located on 1st Street about a quarter mile west of Boyle Avenue. I believe the cross street was Clarence or Utah. The area was known as “The Flats” way back then. I think the theater was demolished years ago, but I can remember passing it everyday when I delivered papers in Boyle Heights back around 1956.

The sign for this theatre now rests at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas. Possibly there are other theatre marquees and signs, too.

The address is actually 5607 West Century Boulevard. It’s now known as the Century Theatre, although it’s uncertain the last time they actually showed films there.

Zip code on this should be 91106, not 91101. Well, 91106-2310 to be precise, but you get the gist.

There’s a nice old photograph of the Esquire at the very back of Canter’s if you want to know what it looked like. Canter’s kept the structure of the marquee, and you can still see where the ticket booth use to be, even though it’s now bricked up completely.

This theatre is in the process of being demolished, as is the entire block of business of which it once formed a major part.

Very, VERY sad.

Not sure if this is the same theatre, but I think it is – it features prominently in this music video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgRxF9_SlkA
