The Alondra 6 actully had more than 1200 seats. Each theatre were narrow, with a center row, reminiscent of early AMC’s. The theatre actually stayed open as a successful dollar house for many years. It succumbed to the new theatres at Norwalk and Cerritos. It finally closed around 1998. It was ran as a unit of Norwalk 20 in its final days. The site was torn down.

Two interesting notes:
– sound was Mono all the way until the theatre closed. AMC never upgraded it.
– it had a crusty toilet in the booth for the projectionist that looked like had never been cleaned.

I watched a million movies here in the late 70’s and early 80’s, including my first 3D flick: “Comin' at Ya”. I definitely remember it being low rent even as a kid; the snack bar was to the immediate right as you walked in the front door. I remember a lot of burnt orange tile and small screens, with the two auditoriums flanking the snack bar as being larger perhaps?

This location should be marked as demolished.

I worked at this theater – it was my first “real” job after high school. I started as concession, then did usher, box office and finally projectionist.

I used to love cleaning up the booths and finding 10+ year old trailers, posters and other stuff.

Some of the managers I had were Kathy Dominguez, Bill Fair and Don Lane – all great people.

Wonderful memories of this ‘tacky’ little movie theater. It was a tight-knit group of employees. Lots of fun.

…and yes, the building was demolished and is now an LA Fitness. :(

Saw many movies here in the early 80’s. Worked here from 1989 to 1991. Great place. I miss it.
