New article about this theater in the LA Times 12/5/23. Link is via MSN:
Does anyone know what year this theater was renovated with recliners?
This theater’s exterior is featured in a new TV commercial for the deodorant Secret.
Have I stayed too long at the Fair…?
Al to the rescue, as usual…!
Here the buildup really begins…
It seems as though this theaters name has been changed to Cinemark Montage Mountain 20 and XD

Two new photos added
Wags have called this picture a mile wide and an inch deep…!
Not sure if they are the owners, or the lessees.
A 15 minute walk! That’s like getting off at 34th St. and walking to 49th St. to go to a movie.
I hope the locals support this house because I don’t think it’s going to be a destination site.
Big Joe, you used to be so humble, it looks like you finally grew a pair…
However, this particular multiplex has all the charm of a bus station.
Please don’t forget the poor neglected step-child Trans-Lux East aka Penthouse (Caligula!) and then the Gotham …
