Just rode by there. Demolition is about 1/3 to ½ completed. Amazing how quickly theaters burn out nowadays. I remember going there shortly after it opened. It wasn’t grand, but it was a decent cinema. By the early 00s it was already on it’s last legs as a first run theater. The last first run movie I think I saw there was 2004’s PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. I don’t think it was long afterwards that it became a 2nd run theater. Now, it’s totally gone.

Theater has closed. Apparently demolition should be in a few days already.

Let’s just keep speculating every couple days until it finally closes. That’s always fun!

The reason I don’t think it is an error is because the site showed through the 27th up until yesterday. They clearly went in and changed it.

Their website culverplazatheatres.com does show the current movies playing through Thursday 12-1. Of course a website always can be in error, and the theater might well be closed Sunday night at close of business.

Was told convincingly by staff last week that Sunday, November 27 would be the last day. Will ask again when I stop by this weekend to take some photos.

Wow! That’s a new update — it was through Sunday up until today. My guess is they’re just sticking around until Thursday… a reliable source told me it was closing this week to make way for condos.

Their website lists showtimes beyond the 27th.

The Culver Plaza was originally operated by Mann Theatres, and was sold by them in May of 2007. It was previously known as the Mann Culver Plaza 6. CinemaTour gives the seating capacity as 1470.

I wondered why the website of the City of Culver City had nothing about this theatre when the site has multiple mentions of the Pacific Theatres multiplex nearby. Then I remembered that some of the lots along Washington Boulevard are actually within the corporate limits of the City of Los Angeles. I checked a map and, sure enough, the Culver Plaza Theatres complex is on the Los Angeles side of the city boundary.

Neither the L.A. County Assessor’s website nor the city’s ZIMAS program will yield information about this address. Some sort of assembly of several parcels appears to be in progress on this block, suggesting that the Culver Plaza may succumb to some large project not to far in the future.
