I deleted many of my (argumentative) comments since they added no merit to the actual theatre pages. I’m much too old for pissing contests.
Blog was always a good space to get the latest heads-up on theatres across the nation. Hate to see it go.
This theatre is reopened and renamed AMC Marina Marketplace 6. It reopened on 10/10 and is still 6 screens. The auditorium sizes are from 217 to 89. The seats are all leather rockers (non-reclining) and the concessions are mid-range (Mozzarella Sticks & Chicken Tenders along with the popcorn).
I’m inside the largest auditorium as I type this. Pretty nice!
Joe: The 2 upstairs screening rooms are 63 seats according to the article.
Wow. The room where I saw Jedi, Superman II, and Die Hard in 70MM is now only 270 seats. Just…wow!
Take tons of pics & post ‘em when they reopen! God only knows when I’ll get back home to see the redo for myself!
They need to do it in the adjacent building next door (the one where all the auditoriums are on the lower level). The big house in there is an easy fit for an IMAX conversion.
Looks like they’re building apartments or offices on the lot where this theatre once was.
Dolby Atmos is now running in this theatre – alongside THX. And BOY OH BOY does it rumble in there. FANTASTIC sound!
Wow…that is ONE GNARLY SOUND SYSTEM! Very impressed with this XD room! Surely all the XD’s aren’t this good!
I am sitting inside the XD auditorium as I type this. In a nutshell, it’s the same IMAX screen with updated decor. Better seats, snazzier side paneling, in line with Cinemark’s color scheme. They’re running Barco’s Aura 11.1 sound. I’ll report on how it sounds when the movie’s done. So far, pretty good.
I live in LA – so no I haven’t driven by there! Wow…one of the last links to my childhood in St L is gone now, I guess.
Theatre is currently closed for renovations.
Goofy rename (no offense, Scott!).
Mark: They’ve been double booking ArcLight & Chinese since “Gravity” opened. Surreal, I know.
Gonna be difficult to focus on the movie due to…DDistractions. :)
I stopped buying the LA Times a couple of years ago. The legendary Calendar section is a pale imitation of its former self. I now get my showtimes and whatnot via the internet like everyone else.
7 days a week. All the LA accessible D/I’s run 7 days a week.
First time visit was last night (where I was welcomed with a TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR in the middle of the flick!). Considerably smaller than the other 4 LA area accessible D/I’s, but clean, well staffed and yummy popcorn. Digital projection is nice and bright and no static interference from the FM radio sound.
Once more folks realize that this spot has reopened, it’s going to be a MONSTER! Heck, with a little reconstruction of their surrounding perimeter walls, they can fit another screen! Maybe 2 more!
Showtimes indicate that this is their soft opening.
Please update the theatre name w/the new info. As Brad said, it’s now named iPIC Westwood.
(Re)Opening Day: Friday April 18, 2014. They announced it today on their FB page.
It’s Mann Theatres that is extinct, not Pacific.
That makes sense since ArcLight books them.
Screens are up! Facebook page is up! Website is up! Looks like they’re going with the name Paramount Drive-In Theatres. Still no official opening date, but their Facebook page indicates that they will announce that in a week or so.
Their FB page has pictures of the screens and a local news report showing the screens being mounted on the site. Pretty spiffy!
