Now that the National is closed (RIP), does anyone know what is going to happen to the Regent?
The Campus Theatre is now closed. If you call the theatre, you get a forwarding number for the Park Theatre in Huntington Beach.
What a bummer.
I went to the Campus twice in the past month and saw two first-run Hollywood films with Spanish subtitles. The interior is very nice and well-kept. I had no idea it was twinned, because it has 400+ seats, and looks to be in original condition. The marquee is deceptive in that it says they are showing two movies, but there is only one theatre and they alternate the showtimes.
It is also the best movie deal in Hollywood: $5 for the matinee and $7.50 for the evening shows!
I was lucky enough to catch the 4:30 show of Napoleon Dynamite at The Plaza during its last day, Thursday 10/21/04. I just moved to Los Angeles, so it was my first and only visit. I got to sit by myself in a very awesome balcony and watch the Norelco humming away in the booth project one last time. The setup and presentation were great; unfortunately it is situated next to a quite large vacant lot. Construction is supposed to begin soon on a retail/ condo complex on the site. I walked by it on Monday, and they were taking the poppers out of the stand.
