With a modified replica of the 1948 Bay Theatre marquee rising on the front walkway, Cinépolis Pacific Palisades began showing movies November 3, 2018, and held a ribbon cutting ceremony November 9.

Designed by Retail Design Collaborative, formerly Perkowitz+Ruth, one auditorium in the 5-screen, 250-recliner cinema is equipped with a 35mm projector for private screenings. The Los Angeles Times noted the largest auditorium seats 77 while the smallest hold 30.

As with all Cinépolis' the cinema has a lobby bar and in-theater dining. To Palisadians familiar with Swarthmore Avenue, Cinépolis sits approximately where Mort’s Deli, with a celebrity following, was located until it closed in 2007. The Village Pantry, Steve’s and then Lenny’s Deli later occupied the space.

Before leveling the 1960’s shopping area Rick Caruso retained Elkus Manfredi Architects to design the $200 million Palisades Village.
