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. It opened on December 15, 1995.

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

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.

Still 35mm. Some very old titles at 1st run prices. Heart of the Sea 5 months in anyone?

No showtimes listed for Friday. Is it closing? Converting?

They had showtimes for today (May 6th) and Sunday, but no further. Could be switching to weekends only, or composing showtimes on the fly based on turnout.

On the upside, CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR in 35mm!

I called on Thursday and they indicated they were having issues with Fandango. They also said they’d be getting GREEN ROOM.

From Los Angeles Times, December 20,1995:

“General Cinema’s Sherman Oaks Cinema at Van Buys Boulevard south of Milbank Street reopened Friday (December 15) marketing director Bob Artz said. The two-screen sister complex on the north side of Milbank gives the Sherman Oaks location a total of seven screens. “It’s a really nice location,” Artz said. “It’s nice for the community; it’s nice for us Four of the five new theaters are "200-seaters plus some change,” Artz said, and they have so-called stadium balconies—balconies with enough of an angle so that everyone can see.”

“The fifth venue has no balcony and seats 170. This theater will house art house films or commercial movies that are late in their run. But, Artz said, “The smaller theater isn’t earmarked for any one type of film.” It will also be used for morning trade screenings. On the seven screens, viewers should expect a mix of family, action, drama, avant-garde and comedy offerings. In addition to standard concession fare, the theater expects to carry Starbucks coffee within two weeks. “We want this to feel like the community’s cinema,” Artz said. And the most important amenity? “We have cup-holder armrests too,” Artz noted. “Let us not forget the cup-holder armrests.” “
