In the 60’s, art films such as Fellini’s “Juliet of the Spirits” played here. It was indeed located in Alpine Village.

It’s still there. You kind of have to know where to look, though.

This should just be listed as “closed”, because it’s certainly still there – booth, screen, auditorium and all.

Open only on weekends in the late sixties, per the LA Times.

I was in this building the other day. It was being used for bingo. The screen is still at one end of the auditorium.

Do we have a bingo function? Otherwise it’s a community hall, more or less.

I was in the building yesterday. Out front it says “Klub Haus,” with nothing to indicate its previous life. We got lucky; the door was open. We walked in and spotted the projection portals on the back wall. An employee confirmed that we were in the right place. The lobby had a bar. There was no screen, and there were long dining tables set up, banquet style. My friend went up and looked in the booth; it was being used for storage.

The address refers to all the buildings; some had letters to differentiate them, and I looked for one on the Klub Haus to make it easier to future cinema fans to find, but couldn’t find one.
