According to the latest Google Street View, the Reseda is still standing. New plywood covers the front, and the building is freshly painted.

The Reseda Theater was designed by S. Charles Lee and opened in 1948. It had been operated by both Pacific Theatres and Metropolitan Theatres. In its final years as a Spanish language house it was advertised as the Cine Reseda. It closed in 1988 and has been sitting vacant. In June 2016 plans were announced for a new Reseda Laemmle Multiplex Theater with 6 screens and 34 senior citizen units on top of and behind the theater building. The RESEDA marquee will be part of the design.
