Once enormously popular, this six-screen multiplex closed in the summer of 2004, unable to compete with Pacific Theatres' stadium seating, 14-screen multiplex at The Grove.

It was demolished in around 2006.

“Beverly Center 13 should be next—-who the hell still goes there?”

I do as my picture give me away on Cinematour. Its all part of my quest to find the world’s smallest 35mm movie theatre screen! Just when I thought I had seen the smallest in ‘05, I dug deeper and found a smaller one in 2007! Check out the picture on the right at the following link:

The exit door is almost wider! Really I only go there to see something that I have missed earlier in its run, such as Flags of Our Fathers when the Beverly Center was the last place playing it. Mann must have a cheap deal from the Mall to operate it. Ironic Mann had to close the National, but keeps this place open.

Regarding the actual subject of this thread: I saw 2 movies at the Beverly Connection before it closed, both in the same small theatre downstairs. Presentation was good. I poked my nose in the other 2 theatres on that level and they seemed like the typical 80’s/90’s GCC large auditorium: dark, red panels hiding surrounds, around 400 blue seats, screen seeming as if it should be bigger, auditorium size making you wonder if you were in the biggest house or not. The use of space at that theatre seemed odd to me. Lobbies upstairs and down seemed too big, as if they could have squeezed in a couple extra screens. (or 10 Beverly Center screens!)

Does anyone know what the seat counts were for the auditoriums, upstairs and down?

That small screen at Beverly Center when it opened only was listed for flat presentations, but later it was fitted for scope too. Now that’s a small picture.

Almost as big as the computer screen you are looking at. (which, in ones field of vision for normal proximity to a computer, would appear larger!!)

We can go ahead and mark this one as closed/demolished. The theatres were torn down about a year or so ago.

What was (or will be) built here after the demolition?

The lower level was rebuilt as a loading dock area, and the upper area is now a Home Goods. If you go to Windows Live Local and look at the Beverly Connection, the south view shows the demolished theatre, and you can see the footprint of the three downstairs theatres. The sloped floors were all that was left when the picture was taken.

The north view shows the theatre before demolition.

Those charity screenings back in 1990 with the 70mm titles and classic and very good films (now many of them are) must have been fun! I wish more theatres did that to celebrate their openings.

Anyone know what the seat counts were here?

i trained there back in 1987 to be prepped for the opening of the Cineplex Odeon Universal City 18. These were small small theaters. Smaller than the Academy 6 in Pasadena.
