The mall, even today, has the feeling of a deserted suburban shopping center. A Fresh & Easy supermarket is now on the lower level and brings some life to the central courtyard. A sad example of 90’s commercial architecture.

For KingBiscuits post it’s “Jurassic Park”. “Undercover Blues” played the Hollywood Pacific.

DOCUMENTARY ON CLASSIC HOLLYWOOD CINEMAS – Lookn for interviewees, photos, videos of old hollywood


I’m and independent filmmaker working on a documentary about old movie theatres in hollywood (Iris, Warner, Pacific, Hollywood, Vogue, Grauman’s Chinese, Egyptian etc..) that have had an impact on the hollywood community, both as a symbol of Hollywood as well as the historical and heritage effects it has had on “hollywood” as an industry. We are profiling theatres that are currently functioning as well as the obsolete. If you worked in these theatres back in the day (during their highlights) and have interesting stories to tell, photos to show, video to talk about I would like to hear from you. Many older movie houses are being demolished due to new developments and it is important to help future generation know and understand how these movie palaces have helped shaped the Hollywood we know today. If you have any photos or videos with personal stories you’d like to share, please contact me (323) 876-0975 – – You must owns the materials you are willing to share (taken the picture- recorded the videos, written the letters, etc…)

If you do have materials you’d like to send that may help in accurate information, you are welcome to send it to me.

Judging by that photo, this theater looked classy.

Since it was called the Galaxy, didn’t star wars play here?

Did this thing even last ten years?

Along with the Northridge earthquake, this complex was probably the final nail in the coffin for the Egyptian and Hollywood Pacific. The Vogue and Fox probably would have closed either way. But the Hollywood Pacific was still doing business with pictures like Silence of the Lambs and Sea of Love. Alien, Aliens and Return of the Jedi were typical premiers at the Egyptian in the 80’s. Instead of finding a way to keep the Hollywood blvd theaters vital, local pols approved this multiplex for one of the best locations on the blvd.

How could the Hollywood Pacific and Egyptian compete?

And this thing didn’t even last 10 years.

Comedian Patton Oswalt does a funny bit about this place in his “Finest Hour” special. It come near the end. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6oATzbndjE

I found some ticket stubs from Hollywood Galaxy I posted in the photos, for 6 Days 7 Nights and U571.

Great to hear Patton name drop the theater in that bit!
