At one time, this was actually three separate free standing buildings — each one a large, modern single screen theater.
The first, simply called the South Bay Theater when it opened in the 1960’s, was built close to Hawthorne Boulevard. Next to it were storefronts and a bowling alley. On the other side of the alley, Cinema 2 was built, another large, modern single screen house. A little further down, #3 was built which was the nicest of all and may have been equipped for 70mm.
Eventually, Cinema 2 was twinned, and then the original theater was tri-plexed in the 1980’s.
General Cinema later built a large multiplex in the adjacent shopping center and the two newer houses were closed.
The original theater operated as an independent, second-run triplex as the Redondo Beach Cinema 3 until it was closed in March 2010. It was demolished in summer of 2010
