The Movies of Tarzana was opened November 29, 1972 with six screens. It was taken over by Mann Theatres December 17, 1982. I went to this theatre for the first time August 12, 2005 and saw “Duece Bigalow European Gigolo”. I had no idea that the very next Thursday was to be its last showtimes. The employees were the usual upbeat people and showed no disappointment that their jobs were coming to an end. I thought the theatre was a cosy little getaway from the overcrowded multiplex monsters.
Theatres 1-6 had signs showing their seating capacity, Aud #1 261, #2 254, #3 306, #4 256, #5 306, #6 183, and #7-8-9 were very small auditoriums. This theatre was old and dated but fit the area well. No stadium seating due to its age and the auditoriums were wide but lacked length.
Apparently, developers are clearing the way for demolition of the theater and some nearby shops to start construction of an upscale retail development. Demolition is set for October 2005. It would have been nice if Mann Theatres would let the public know in advance so patrons can give their hometown theatre one last viewing.
