According to Landmark Theatres the theatre is no longer owned by Samuel Goldwyn and is now part of the Landmark chain.
Yes it is now open as the Kirk Douglas Theatre.
Thank you Ed Mirvish.
Everytime I’m having a burger at “The Apple Pan” I think of how it used to taste better after watching a movie in those rocking seats.
The Aero was such a great theatre until the Northridge earthquake, and they did renovations, putting in new seats that were so awful – They were too small and extremely uncomfortable… especially for a double-bill. I used to check their listings first and after they messed it up I rarely went… and I noticed I never saw it full anymore. I’m happy it’s being rejuvenated and looking forward to it.
This is such a well run theatre. They have a very spirited staff who are always pleasant, efficient, courteous and often fun, sometimes with adornments to match the movie as they did with “Blair Witch”.
I was so afraid when it closed that it would be gone but Culver City is amazing at keeping their history intact. We are grateful. In the 80s I loved going there mostly for horror and cheesy faire and was sure to wear shoes and never put your popcorn on the floor, ‘cause it was so scuzzy that I was sure cockroaches ran across your feet while watching “Chucky” kill. Fond memories.
There was a time during the 80s when they were showing the double bill for 49 cents and on Tuesdays Free Popcorn. I wondered how the hell they could do that. I went.
