When this theatre was built by GCC, it was a replacement for their damaged Sherman Oaks 3,4,5 complex. Because of zoning in the area they only could build on the former site of the old triplex and only could seat the same amount of people. So they built four high ceiling little balcony theaters and a small little auditorium upstairs.

This theater is currently operated by Pacific Theatres, but was operated by AMC after the merger of GCC and AMC Theatres.

It was torn down a month or two ago. Pacific did not pick those 2 screens up when they took over operations from AMC.

Roark, During that time this was not the only theatre that the projectionist could get run over during work. The Mann Westwood Theatres, Hollywood Pacific Theatre & Vine Theatre, Roxy-Alex-Regency 1 in Glendale, Studio Drive-In & Centinela Drive-In. To name afew that had the projectionist walk or drive between locations to start shows.

This theatre must be doing OK business at the moment has the Sherman Oaks Galleria is closed for renovations to be turned into an Arclight. Question is: What are Pacific’s plans for theatre after the Galleria has become an Arclight?

Maybe Art or Move-over till something else gets built. During the GCC days it did some nice business.

The theater never seems to be too crowded and it has ample free parking. Regardless of the smallness of the auditoriums and the closeness of the rows of seats, it is nice to still have theaters with balconies.

No, the theatre that was in FAST TIMES was the previous AMC complex at the old Galleria mall, before the whole thing was torn down and rebuilts as the current open-air shopping district with the Arclight Cinema.

This was, however, the theatre that appeared in “ENTOURAGE” when the ficticious AQUAMAN movie had it’s well-received premiere.

The theater in the Galleria that was featured in “Fast Times At Ridgemont High” was run by Pacific, not AMC.

Sat in the balcony for the XMAS Eve showing of the new Mission Impossible movie. I like the free parking, easy accessibility and $8.75 senior price. New Years Eve I will see the 8:10P showing of “Shame.” Surprised they got that limited release Oscar buzz movie and hope they get more special movies in the future. One can easily combine a movie with shopping at Gelson’s and Best Buy or one of many local restaurants.
