Only Close Encounters is incorrect. The others did play there. Close Encounters played at the Deauville Twin for a week.

Scott,you’re correct. “Police Academy 5” was the last movie to play there when it closed on March 30,1988.

This was five minutes from where I lived as a kid. Of course,it opened just over four years after we left. Our old go to drive-in,the Airline,was fifteen minutes away going down the I-45 Freeway towards the downtown area.

So it closed in 1986? Because I’ve been trying to find out when it closed.

The owner/operatorship is only slightly correct. In the mid ‘70s,the Loews theatres that didn’t go to General Cinema went to the short lived Century Cinema Circuit. In 1976,Seattle Washington based SRO Theatres took over until Pacific acquired most of the lot in late 1983.

Pacific Theatres kept it as a triplex for a little while before turning it into a five screen multiplex until they eventually closed it.

Opening day ads of its expansion to a triplex on March 25,1977 posted in the photo section. Taken from the Los Angeles Times:

Los Angeles Times once listed the theatre in its independent theatre section as shown by the photo in the photo section.

richjr37 commented about Del Mar Theatre on Mar 25, 2017 at 2:47 pm

It closed as a Pussycat in 1974(The Los Angeles Times and San Bernardino Sun newspapers can prove this)as a result of pressure from the neighbors. It operated under various names before closing as the Delmar in the late ‘80s after switching to Spanish films for a short time.

It actually opened in December 1980 as a sixplex. It wasn’t expanded until the early ‘90s. I remember reading the ads in the Review-Journal and seeing “Popeye” as one of the opening features. I no longer live in the area,but a quick search at the archives of both the R-J and Las Vegas Sun newspapers would confirm this.

Apparently,it has as of Tuesday night. I wonder if the lease ran out and Landmark decided not renew it. In any case,another L.A. single screen gem gone.
