This venue was tucked away towards the rear of a shopping center on the northwest corner of Chatsworth Street and Zelzah Avenue. It opened June 6, 1986 and as a multiplex, it did all right well into the 1990’s but was unable to compete against megaplexes that sprang up in nearby Northridge and Chatsworth during the theater building boom of the late-1990’s, and was eventually shut down around the turn of the millennium.

The UA Granada Hills 7, then called the UA Movies, was one of four San Fernando Valley area United Artists multiplexes listed in the Los Angeles Times of Sunday, August 24, 1986. The others were the six screen UA Valley Plaza in North Hollywood, the six screen UA Warner Center in Woodland Hills, and the five screen UA Movies in Thousand Oaks. I can’t find the Thousand Oaks theatre listed on Cinema Treasures, but it was at 382 Hillcrest Drive, in The Oaks Shopping Center.

The theater is now a Steinmart. I remember well when this theater opened for at the time there was not another theater in Granada Hills. At the time the seven screens seemed like an enormous amount. Now it is puny compared to the nearby megaplezes.

Here is the Steinmart site. Function should be retail.

The theatre was the UA district office for most of the late 80s early 90s. I worked there on and off around 1990.

I worked at the UA Granada Hills as a projectionist from Fall 1989 to Spring 1991, when I transferred to the UA Coronet. At that point I was regularly running screenings and training/managing projection staffs at a few of the UA theaters. Granada Hills was a decent theater. I liked the management and staff. I have fond memories of my time there.
