This theatre is reopened and renamed AMC Marina Marketplace 6. It reopened on 10/10 and is still 6 screens. The auditorium sizes are from 217 to 89. The seats are all leather rockers (non-reclining) and the concessions are mid-range (Mozzarella Sticks & Chicken Tenders along with the popcorn).

I’m inside the largest auditorium as I type this. Pretty nice!

AMC is turning this into a lower-end version of their high-end Dine-In across the street. I read that the plan is to make this one family accessible (the current Dine-In is 21 and over only). The signage says “Coming Summer 2013” but I haven’t heard any hard facts about opening dates from AMC themselves.

UA Marina is re-opening as an AMC. In addition to taking over the former Odeon Marina Marketplace across the street and turning it into an AMC Dine-In, American Multi-Cinema has also acquired this once very busy sixplex.

I can confirm. It is indeed closed. UA signage gone and inside looks gutted and stripped.

A friend who lives nearby has told me the theatre is closed. Indeed, there are no listings for it on Regal’s website.

Honestly, I think the last time I went to the UA Marina was in 1983 with a few friends to see The Big Chill in the largest screen. It is surprising it has stayed open this long considering how terrible the theatres are. In the 70’s I thought they were bad, cannot image how they are now.

The time is almost up on this place. The shopping center is going to undergo a remodel and not in the plans are the ua6. It may be almost 40 years old but its end is near.

The UA Marina opened as a 4 plex in 1974 and expanded to a 6 plex in 1977.

I remember the video arcade. There was a shooting there around 1986, some gang problem. The theater never seems very busy.

I remember after the Loyola and Paradise closed, we’d have to go here by default. The only good thing was the great video arcade next door, but that closed by the mid to late 80s. Besides being a lousy venue, the rule of thumb was to never wear anything identifying you with Westchester High unless you wanted the Venice High gangs to chase you away. I can’t believe that with the Bridge open and Loews across the street, that this boring little boxy multiplex is still around.

There is a new Pavilions in this shopping center, but other than that there haven’t been any improvements for years. Additionally most of the businesses in the adjacent lot have folded, including Tower Records and Good Guys. I’m sure the rent is reasonable.

I’m shocked this theatre is still open. It was a dump 20 years ago, I could only imagine what it is like now. The lease must be very affordable. I’m also shocked that AMC hasn’t built a ‘monster plex’ in Marina Del Rey already.

I have lived and worked in the Marina for twenty years, and have been to the UA twice. That should give you some idea of its reputation.

The lease they have most be very low in cost for them to stay open with such sub-par presentations. At least you could walk aross the parking lot to the Cineplex Marketplace 6 (now Loews) for a better presentation.

I can’t believe these theatres are still open. They were awful in the 70’s and 80’s. I could only imagine what they are like now. I’m surprised AMC hasn’t opened a 20 plex in that area yet.

This should be 4335 Glencoe Avenue, not 4935. Also known as UA Cinema 6, UA Marina, and the Marina del Rey 6.

The UA Marina theatre is a standard mid 1970’s design 6 plex. UA puts very little money into this location. Cineplex has a little newer 6 plex about a ½ block away. These theatres have the aisle down the center of the theatre. in the early 80’s UA tried to charge an extra 50 cents per seat in the loge area, that lasted for about a year. GCC tried the same idea in the mid 90’s.
