I am currently looking for any Old Theatres in which to lease or possibly buy in Reseda, Van Nuys, Hollywood or North Hollywood. It has been my Long life Dream to renevate and own my own Theatre/ Venue. Please e-mail me at or call me at 310-597-9398 if youo live here!! Thanks.Rick

P.S. If you also live in the areas in which I am looking and want to help please contact me as well!!

On 4/29/77, the Airport was showing a double feature – “A Star is Born” (1976 version) and “Carrie”. The phone number was 892-1181. Tickets were $1.50 until 7 p.m. Mon-Thurs and until 3 p.m. Sat-Sun.

Here is a 1973 ad from the LA Times:

I remember this as a comfortable, quiet and out-of-the-way alternative to the relative bustle of Panorama City’s Americana multiplex in the late 1960s. By “quiet,” I mean uncrowded; air traffic noise from nearby Van Nuys Airport was occasionally audible.

Strictly speaking, though, the Airport Theater’s address wasn’t in Van Nuys. Its location on the north side of Roscoe Boulevard put it in Sepulveda (back then), now rechristened “North Hills.”

I lived right off Roscoe near Sepulveda, and went to the Airport several times in the early 1970s. I remember seeing a reissue of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service there. Nice little nabe.

The entire block across from the Home Depot has been razed, and something is being built there. Status should be closed/demolished.

Did they ever show “AIRPORT” at the Airport Theatre?

The March 7, 1966, issue of Boxoffice reported that Jack Grossman’s Holiday Theatres chain had just opened its latest hardtop, the Airport Theatre.
