The Long Beach Marketplace 6 opened on December 17, 1976, with “King Kong” as one of its films. Other than periodic new carpeting, paint, wall covering and bathroom and seating changes to conform to the Americans With Disabilities Act, it has remained the same. All of the technical changes made behind the scenes to its sound and projection systems is not known.
In early-2002 all United Artist Theatres were merged, along with Edwards Theatres, into Regal Entertainment, which had been recently formed by Philip Anschutz. Its closest competitor is the AMC Marina Pacific 12, about a half of a mile away, which has about half of its screens devoted to stadium seating.
The small size of the UA auditoriums would probably make it impractical to add stadium seating but this doesn’t stop it from being a popular venue, probably due to the numerous restaurants around it. Sometimes they mix a few art films with their first run fare and the patrons are generally the older crowd. It was closed on March 17, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It was announced in March 20201 that the closure would be permanent.
