samaustin commented about Heights Theatre on Aug 10, 2011 at 9:56 am

My family operated the Heights from the early 1980s until it was demolished to widen the West Freeway. The theater opened in 1939, ad the Heights Theatre, and later operated as the Capri, and the Borzoi. When we took over the operation, we went back to the original name. WE ran classic films, foreign films and special features, including small-scale film festivals. For many years, the heights offered an alternative for a large group of loyal patrons, at very low cost. We never made much of a profit running the place, but it kept another fine little theater going for a few more years.
