The plans for the United Artists Galaxy Stadium 11 were announced in the Long Beach Press-Telegram in December of 1996. The new theater, to be built in the former Woolworth store at Gridley Road and South Street, the address given was 435 Los Cerritos Center. It was originally to have 2,975 seats, which was 775 more seats than those already at the Mall’s two theaters.
In 1997 United Artists went back to the drawing board when it was decided to change the plans and make it the first UA stadium theater in Southern California. After about a six-month delay the $10 Million dollar complex opened on May 20, 1998 with 2,951 seats. This gave largest auditorium 400 seats and the smallest 184 seats, while most of the remaining auditoriums had around 260-280 seats. The only entrance to the theater and the boxoffice is located inside the mall.
The center had been without movies for a year as the twin theater in the parking lot and the fourplex inside the mall had already been demolished.
After United Artists’ 2000 bankruptcy the theater became part of Regal Entertainment Group but the signage still retained the United Artists name. It was closed in February 2014, and demolished in late-summer 2014.
