I could not find ANY info on this theater on the net but I have a hardcover souvenir program book for "My Fair Lady" (1964) & the 1st page is rubber stamped:
STARTS WED. JUNE 23RD
LOEWS PANORAMA THEATRE
PANORAMA CITY

Could this theatre have been turned into the multi-plex "Americana" at the 8600 block of Van Nuys Boulevard where it curves at Parthenia Street north of Roscoe Boulevard, or was Loew’s Panorama Theatre a different venue? The Americana Theatre is already listed on this site.

I remember seeing “Camelot” & “Tales From the Crypt” at the Americana when it was still fairly new in 1970 or 1971 when I was 8-9 yrs of age.

Or was it the Panorama Theater that was in Panorama City that is already also listed here on CT that was at 9110 Van Nuys Boulevard?

I think this was the single screen Panorama Theatre. The Panorama Theatre was subleased to afew operators during 1960’s to 1970. During the mid 60’s Loew’s operated screens on the West Coast till it sold them to GCC in the early 70’s. “My Fair Lady” could not have played this theatre till after around March 1966. “My Fair Lady” started it’s Roadshow Engagement at the Egyptian Theatre on Oct. 29th. 1964 and played only this theatre till Feb/Mar 1966 for a total of 68 weeks. “My Fair Lady” was also reissued on Jan. 22 1971.

Building looks like it might still be standing.

I’m from Panorama City ‘60-'96, and there was never a second Panorama Theatre, as far as I know. My Fair Lady was at the Panorama Theatre from the other site—I saw the movie there. Loewe’s was put in front of the name for a time and they may have been the sponsors of the film/theatre. I’ve always known the Americana under that name; if it ever were named Loewe’s Panorama Theatre, it eluded me as a big film fan.
