This theater is sitting with the same marquee as the day it closed. I can imagine the rodent fest going on inside.

It’s just not needed any more.

MikeRadio, you wish was granted, but not in the way any of us were anticipating it was going to happen(since all of Pacific Theaters are now gone for good)

This theater was used as an stand in for a 7 screen movie theater in the Diane Lane movie ¨The Glass House¨ where Leelee Sobieski was seeing an slasher movie.

How is this place still open as a first run house? With expensive consessions! It is in the shape of a second run house.

No recliner upgrades. The armrests don’t even go up. No stadium seating even.

It really needs to go.

Did they used to show the Rocky Horror Picture Show here in the mid-80s? I think I remember going to the old 2-plex and seeing Rocky Horror for the first time here?

It appears the Sherman Oaks 5 halted showing 35mm last weekend and only have their 2 digital screens listed as showing something through today on Fandango. Tuesday onward has no showtimes. Closing? Or finally going all digital?

Oddly, certain movies stay at this theater months after they hit DVD. It showed MAD MAX: FURY ROAD for about a year, and it currently has GHOSTBUSTERS: ANSWER THE CALL and SECRET LIFE OF PETS. At first-run prices!

I called on Thursday and they indicated they were having issues with Fandango. They also said they’d be getting GREEN ROOM.

They had showtimes for today (May 6th) and Sunday, but no further. Could be switching to weekends only, or composing showtimes on the fly based on turnout.

On the upside, CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR in 35mm!

markinthedark on May 5, 2016 at 3:39 pm

Still 35mm. Some very old titles at 1st run prices. Heart of the Sea 5 months in anyone?

No showtimes listed for Friday. Is it closing? Converting?

Sat in the balcony for the XMAS Eve showing of the new Mission Impossible movie. I like the free parking, easy accessibility and $8.75 senior price. New Years Eve I will see the 8:10P showing of “Shame.” Surprised they got that limited release Oscar buzz movie and hope they get more special movies in the future. One can easily combine a movie with shopping at Gelson’s and Best Buy or one of many local restaurants.

The theater in the Galleria that was featured in “Fast Times At Ridgemont High” was run by Pacific, not AMC.

meheuck on August 21, 2011 at 8:01 pm

No, the theatre that was in FAST TIMES was the previous AMC complex at the old Galleria mall, before the whole thing was torn down and rebuilts as the current open-air shopping district with the Arclight Cinema.

This was, however, the theatre that appeared in “ENTOURAGE” when the ficticious AQUAMAN movie had it’s well-received premiere.

ronnie21 on May 22, 2010 at 4:36 pm

wasn’t this the theater that was in the mall, that was seen in fast times at ridgemont high???

markinthedark on July 17, 2008 at 1:56 pm

…and easy parking and no crowds…

The theater never seems to be too crowded and it has ample free parking. Regardless of the smallness of the auditoriums and the closeness of the rows of seats, it is nice to still have theaters with balconies.

Maybe Art or Move-over till something else gets built. During the GCC days it did some nice business.

markinthedark on November 7, 2007 at 12:07 pm

This theatre must be doing OK business at the moment has the Sherman Oaks Galleria is closed for renovations to be turned into an Arclight. Question is: What are Pacific’s plans for theatre after the Galleria has become an Arclight?

William on November 7, 2007 at 11:56 am

Roark, During that time this was not the only theatre that the projectionist could get run over during work. The Mann Westwood Theatres, Hollywood Pacific Theatre & Vine Theatre, Roxy-Alex-Regency 1 in Glendale, Studio Drive-In & Centinela Drive-In. To name afew that had the projectionist walk or drive between locations to start shows.

markinthedark on December 13, 2005 at 5:08 am

It was torn down a month or two ago. Pacific did not pick those 2 screens up when they took over operations from AMC.

Roark on December 12, 2005 at 8:18 pm

What happened to the 2 big premier screening houses across the street? I notice that the “GCC 7” plex went to the “Pacific 5”. I know a lot of studios used the facility to screen prints back in the GCC reign.

Roark on December 12, 2005 at 8:13 pm

Maybe the only gig in history where working as a projectionist, you have the possibility of getting run over in traffic while threading up all the movie houses.

jmarellano on April 7, 2005 at 8:43 pm

The 5 plex is still open and operated by Pacific as either a move over theatre from their Galleria 16 about a mile away, or art product does open here as well.
