The original 1924 built Criterion Theatre, which was once part of the Fox West Coast Theatres circuit, was razed (apart from the facade) around 1983 to make way for this newer 6-plex.
Sitting near the AMC 7 and the Loews Cineplex Broadway 4, this popular movie house is located on Santa Monica’s bustling 3rd Street Promenade.
Mann Theatres opened the Mann Criterion 6 on June 27, 1990. It was designed by Jeff Cooper Architects. In 2001 the interior and exterior of the theater were remodeled by architectural firm Behr Browers Architects of Westlake, CA. It was one of the most successful theaters in the circuit.
It was closed on March 30, 2013 the the building was gutted internally to become retail use.
