Now I am laughing. This site was created so we could “treasure” our historic cinemas. You were doing the reverse, so yes, I was deadpanning appreciation. Of course, I realize there are some not so good, usually post 1960s, movie houses here, too.

The facilities aren’t as bad nowadays, save for the graffiti on the seats and general griminess. They have surround sound and (I’m pretty sure) movable masking. But the audiences are just as bad as Chris explained.

Howard: So the right thing for me to do was to keep my mouth closed about my wasted years watching movies here?

No, Chris, I was having fun. I thought about doing the same with Danny’s comment, i.e. I should book a flight right away! Fortunately, there are many greatly positive memories on this site, too, albeit none yet for this one!

A horrible, horrible theater! I lived across the street for four years, attending USC. One visit — and I never went back! Blech! Better to drive to Westwood… or just miss the movie.

Haha I will back Chris up on all of his criticisms of this place. I ventured here exactly once back in the early 2000s, and that was enough for me. I’ve literally been in living rooms with more space and better setups than what the UV3 was sporting. And holy mother of god, the floors… how they could get so sticky, I’ll (thankfully) never know.

It’s unfortunate that AFAIK, the redeveloped UV currently doesn’t include a theater in its plans.
