Cinemark North Hollywood

Built on the structure of an old Westward Ho market, the Century 8 features three large upstairs theaters and five smaller screens in the basement. They have the lowest twilight prices in the San Fernando Valley.

It opened June 3, 1988. Competition from the Sherman Oaks Galleria 16 and the Burbank AMC could have lead to the end of this fairly uninteresting modern style theater, which has been taken over by Cinemark.

Its so sickening that when competition opens up they just throw up their arms and stop doing things like cleaning a bathroom. Some of these theatres might survive if they stayed well kept. Not everyone likes mega-plexes.

The Century 8 is very typical of multiplexes built in the late 1980s. Lots of mirrors and lots of red. The theater is aging and does show signs of its age and poor maintenance. But in all fairness many very new megaplexes, notably the Winnetka 21 in Chatsworth, have extremely poor janitorial quality. Much worse than the Century 8 considering their respective ages.

The upstairs theaters are much better now after upgrading to digital 3D projectors. There used to be allot of sound problems in those upstairs houses 2-3 years ago but now that seems to be fixed. Good to see Cinemark put some money in this small but still very much alive neighborhood theater. The downstairs houses are still tiny and it’s pretty amazing that they book some movies on such small screens in their first week of release. I guess management is doing the best they can with this old school theater. Way too crowded on the weekends, but still a nice place to catch a weekday matinee. Also lately I have seen an army of young kids working there so cleanliness and maintenece must be a priority now.

This theatre is located in North Hollywood CA, not Los Angeles CA.

North Hollywood IS part of Los Angeles. WEST Hollywood is a separate city, NORTH Hollywood (and regular Hollywood) are suburbs of the City of Los Angeles.

All seats throughout the complex were converted to ‘Cinemark Luxury Loungers’ in August 2015, and the building was rebranded ‘Cinemark North Hollywood’.

I am glad to see this theater still opened! I remember seeing Ghostbusters 2, and waiting in a looooong line with a couple friends. When we finally got to the theater, it was their ‘spillover’ theater which seemed like a big-screen tv, LOL. One of the friends who went worked in FX (still does),and I remember going to see other films here that he worked on, or friends of ours who worked on other films. I remember seeing ‘Swamp Thing’ (the 80’s remake), and a couple others that I don’t remember here. But, again, it is always nice to see old places, especially theaters, still opened when I visit L.A.!
