The Monica Twin opened as a two-plex on February 18, 1970 with the opening of “Oliver!”. It was built and has always been operated by Laemmle who used to alternate between foreign films and Hollywood studio product.
On June 17, 1981 it became a quad by converting the largest of the the two big screens into three small auditoriums and they started to be strictly art house from then on. It remained very popular amongst the trendy Santa Monica crowd. The Laemmle Monica 4, in advance of Arclight’s new Santa Monica cinemas, was closed June 8, 2014 for remodeling.
The completely rebuilt complex is now a six-screen art house theatre named Laemmle Monica Film Center. It reopened on January 29, 2016.
