Interior - May 2013

The News-View Theatre first opened as a newsreel theatre in 1939. It was designed by architect Harry Wright and had seating for 386 on a single floor. It later began screening feature films as the New-View Theatre.

It became a Pussycat Theatre in the mid-1970’s and had its biggest hit when it screened Linda Lovelace in “Deep Throat”, which ran for ten years. When that closed in the summer of 1989, it was renamed Ritz Theatre, operating as a third run movie house and closed in 1991.

This theatre was used by the Brazilian based ‘church’ the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God until December 2015. In May 2016 it was being converted into a Hologram USA Hollywood Theater which opened November 1, 2017.

Someone needs to scan the photos. If you don’t have a photo scanner, find a friend who does? or maybe Staples? once on your computer or device, easy to upload here via the photo function.

Having lived in the area 1981-1989 I don’t recall “Deep Throat” running 10 years.

I lived in Hollywood, and then nearby, from 1972 to 1982, and I’m pretty sure it played there (along with “The Devil in Miss Jones”) pretty much throughout those years.

Does anybody have ANY info on this theatre right now? So far as I see everytime I’m working with the Egyptian, is that it’s shut down. Surely something is happening. (And I’m not calling you Shirley!)

The signage is currently returned to the Pussycat Theatre for the current Tarantino film. Although it is set in 1969, which precedes it’s Pussycat days. I posted two photos of the conversion, as well as ones from 69 &71 as the New-View, and one from circa `86 as the Pussycat. All credit and courtesy of the Vintage Los Angeles Facebook page.

I used to go to the New View theatre during the early 70’s. They still showed mainstream movies.
