Must’ve seen Dawn of The Dead a few dozen times here at midnight screenings. The earliest films I remember seeing there are Corvette Summer, Orca The Killer Whale and Island of Dr Moreau. Saw The Thing here on opening day aside from my friends and myself there must’ve only been about three other people!

Very cool theater in it’s day. It was originally a 4 plex then added to more to make it 6. I believe the managers name was Mr. Fink. New the 2 projectionists, Clyde and Frank and would watch movies up there and watch him thread those projectors. Century projectors and Cristie AW2 platters.

Thanks Bill. I do recall the inside theatre. It was kind of in between May Company and JCPenney (I only recall this mall having two anchors). I only went to it a handful of times before it closed.

This theatre was located inside of the mall. I don’t recall which department store it was located near.

The Plitt (later run by Syufy/Century) City Center Theatre was located in the parking lot of the mall.

Was this the outside the City Mall, near JCPenney / The City Tower?

In the August 24, 1986 Los Angeles Times, the United Artist’s Theatres listings show this to have been a six-screen multiplex, not a four-screen.
