A very nice modern (70s) cinema with huge screens for 70mm.

This theatre was originally opened by ABC Theatres on April 7th. 1972. It opened as a twin cinema with a seating capacity of 788 & 715. It was like a smaller version of ABC Theatre’s Century Plaza Cinemas in Century City. The larger main auditorium was cutup in 1985 to make a total of four screens in this complex (later like Century Plaza). The theatre opened as ABC Theatre and later operated by Plitt Theatres, then Syufy/Century Theatres. The theatre closed in the mid 90’s. Today the location is a parking lot.

February 6, 1978 issue of Boxoffice has an article about the location installing Christie AW3’s for their March 25, 1977 opening of Star Wars. Article says the theatre was seven years old at the time.

Funny you should mention Star Wars and this theather. My Sister and I saw Star Wars here no less than 10 times! I remember the picture sure seemed amazing back then. Guess those Christie’s did a good job!!
