The $250,000, 650-seat Melody Theatre, developed by Harry Rosenberg and owned by Jack Grossman, opened on October 13, 1965. The theater, designed by George Kirkpatrick, became a twin theater in 1972 presumably by dividing the original auditorium.

On August 4, 1996 the Los Angeles Times reported the closing of the Melody Theatre. Growing competition from newer and larger chain theaters was said to be the reason for the closure. The Daily News of Los Angeles noted that Sally Sung had been the loyal manager since 1981.

Google Maps has its pin icon way off again. The Melody Theatre was on the east side of Moorpark Road just south of Columbia Road, somewhat more than a mile south of the pin’s location. I’ve moved Street View. The entire shopping center in which the theater was located has been rebuilt, so the Melody Theatre has been demolished.
