Previous Names: Melody Theatre
Located in the Park Oaks Shopping Center. The $250,000, 650-seat Melody Theatre, developed by Harry Rosenberg and owned by Jack Grossman, opened on October 13, 1965 with Patty Duke in “Billie” plus a major studio preview. The theater, designed by George Kirkpatrick, became a twin theater on December 7, 1972 presumably by dividing the original auditorium.
On August 4, 1996 the Los Angeles Times reported the closing of the Melody Theatre. Growing competition from newer and larger chain theaters was said to be the reason for the closure. The Daily News of Los Angeles noted that Sally Sung had been the loyal manager since 1981.
