The IMAX was installed in 2005, it was not enough to save it from the nearby Hollywood Stadium 12

Southern Theatres plans to reopen this theater as a “movie-tavern,” targeting Tanksgiving for the event. The IMAX and other projection equipment will removed in favor of digital; seven auditoriums of the current twelve will be used in the new operation. Story here: View link

great news. article confirmed my suspicions that the building was simply abandoned. crazy that they just left projection equipment in there. they should give the equipment away – could be fixed up for an indy theater.
