I used to work at the La Mirada Theatre in the mid-1970’s. I started at the original theatre, which has now become the Performing Arts Center. Pacific Theatres then opened the La Mirada 4 Theatres in the La Mirada Mall and 2 more theatres were eventually added.
Some of the people I used to work with are Bob R., Dale M., Debbie C., Steve G., Bruce H., Ruth M., Mike P., Lori C., Debbie H., Jodi J., Janet G., Cindy H., Jeannette T., Christie H., many more that escape my thoughts at the moment, and last but not least, the incredible Mr. D.
If there are any former employees out there, I would love to hear from you.
What a great time it was!
I have a lot of fond memories from working there. The manager and employees were a fantastic group of people to work with. If there are any former employees out there or patrons with fond memories, too, I would love to hear from you.
I used to work at the Whittwood Theatre during the early 1970’s. I have a lot of fond memories! The manager and employees were just a fantastic group of people to work with!
The Whittwood Theatre specialized in Disney films. The ticket lines would stretch around the theatre for some of the films. We had ‘Herbie the Love Bug’ drive all around Whittier. A doorman dressed up as a lion for ‘Napoleon and Samantha’. We had the western look for the ‘Apple Dumpling Gang’, complete with a play on the stage before the movie. One of our favorites was ‘One Little Indian’. In the lobby, we had Indian crafts and dress on display and had Indian dancing outside.
I have access to a lot of information on the building of the Whittwood Theatre, the design, layout, equipment, etc. I will post as much of that as I can at a later date. Someone out there might find it interesting.
If there are any former employees out there or any patrons that would like to respond with fond memories, please do. I would love to hear from you.
What a great time we had!
