Fairfax 6 Theatres

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Fairfax Theatre was constructed by the Blumenfeld Chain in 1950 as a single screen movie house. The theater was later split and then purchased by Cinema West.

Restored in 1993, the theater has added three more screens, for a total of five auditoriums. In 2012 a sixth screen was added.

Thanks Fairfax for having the only theatre in your area with digital 3-D. Today and this week watch the crowds come to see ‘Beowulf’ in the new 3-D at the Fairfax. I can’t believe the Century/Cinemark guys are so slow in your area to install this new technology. Why go to a movie theatre and see a 3-D movie in boring flat 2-D! Your business will be triple from the 3 Cinemark theatres showing the 2-D 35mm print. Watch out as soon as they see the $$ going to the indi Fairfax Theatre they will wake up and get caught up with the new digital world of projection. Enjoy the business while you can at the Cinema West Fairfax.

According to their web page, they will install solar panels soon and are claiming they will be the first cinema in the nation to be completely solar powered.

I don’t know what the current seating is, but the Fairfax is listed in 1955 with 600 seats.
