Rave Baldwin Hills - RaveXtreme Auditoriums

Opened June 30, 1995, this was the first theatre in the Magic Johnson Theatres chain, a partnership between the former basketball star’s business enterprises and Sony/Loews Theatres. AMC closed the Crenshaw 15 on June 13, 2010.

Taken over by Rave Motion Pictures chain, the theatre was completely renovated (for $10 million) and reopened on June 28, 2011 with preview screenings of “Transformers 3”. It was taken over by Cinemark on July 26, 2013.

I enjoy that from the photos I can see the leftover elements of Loews with the red atrium dome above the lobby and the outside brick.

I’ve never been to this particular location but I know Loews loved building these theatres with an entrance on both sides of the building. If this was like that, no wonder the lobby is so small, they closed off half of it.

Looks good though. Would love to see some good auditorium photos before the place sees any wear.

The theatre name is STILL Rave Baldwin Hills Crenshaw 15. Cinemark has kept the “Rave Cinemas” branding and has added said branding to their homepage.

Please change the theatre’s name.

Chris, to reply to your Rave LA question, too, Mea Culpa, I changed the name, added to the Intro, and changed the theater chain. When I changed the name, Rave wasn’t on the homepage but you are right- it is there now. It may take a week, but I will change back those names changed on other pages, as well as complete the theater chain & Intro changes.

This location has been rebranded from ‘Rave’ to ‘Cinemark’. I have added a new photo of the front of the building showing the Rave signage having been replaced with Cinemark signage.
