Like Nicholas i saw films here as a child. It was fun going back 20 years later and reliving some of that. I saw Back to the Future 2, ninja turtles 2 and jarassic park. Another theater killed by digital.

Public access 21 filmmaker Walt Peterson shot a sci-fi movie here because of its futuristic spaceship looking chrome wall.

I saw a CL ad for 35mm projectors for sale. I emailed the guy and he said the theatre is out of business and they don’t know what the building will be remodeled for. He said it will not be a theatre or church.

I haven’t had a chance to go in but I saw a lot of movies there as kid. My parents would almost always take me to Carsonie’s which is right out front after the show. Just off the top of my head I saw Back to the Future 2, The Hunt for Red October, The Shadow, Star Trek Generations, Groundhog Day, Phenomenon, and many more there.

The Place looks really rundown now from the outside. Several poster cases just sit empty because they are so badly broken and the ones that do work have the showtimes written on pieces of masking tape.

sunday the hallway was lit. also they don’t mask the side of the screens. so it has fuzzy edges.

you can still see the outline of the old sign on the building. no pre-show just music and dark rooms. can’t see to sit down.

the hallway to the 8 theaters is no longer lit because of money issues and some of the lights are out. http://hollywoodstudiotheatre.com
