Yes, the theaters were boxes, but I saw E.T., A Nightmare on Elm Street 1, The Breakfast Club, Boyz N' The Hood, and many other great movies at the BC Cineplex. Wouldn’t trade those experiences for the world. And god, the BC used to be SUCH a great place to meet women in the 80’s, especially if you were a teenager. There were more gorgeous women in BH/West L.A. in the 80’s than any decade. I once saw Sharon Stone walking there in about 1986-7, drooled over her but was too shy about talking to such a cool older female (I was 16-17), and then recognized her onscreen (not at the Cineplex) when I saw her in Total Recall! Crazy L.A.! Plus, there is something inherently fun about seeing a movie in a mall – you can hang out before and/or after it. End of an era, I guess. Onward!
