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.

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

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 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.

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

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?

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.

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

What happened to the 2 big premier screening houses across the street? I notice that the “GCC 7” plex went to the “Pacific 5”. I know a lot of studios used the facility to screen prints back in the GCC reign.

Maybe the only gig in history where working as a projectionist, you have the possibility of getting run over in traffic while threading up all the movie houses.

The 5 plex is still open and operated by Pacific as either a move over theatre from their Galleria 16 about a mile away, or art product does open here as well.

Thanks lostmemory

After working all three theatres for a few years, I forgot the address of the theatres.

That address was for the GCC Sherman Oaks twin across the street. The Pacific 5 is located on Milbank Street.
