The Bryant Theatre was a 160-seat independent named after its owner, Alan Bryant. It opened on November 15, 1972 with Clark Gable in “Gone With the Wind”. It managed to survive for nearly seven years in the 1970’s San Fernando Valley among a few dozen others.
As advertised in the Van Nuys News as the “Valley’s newest, prettiest, nicest, most comfortable, most convenient, community motion picture theatre”, it opened November 14, 1972, with “Gone With The Wind”. This was just two weeks before the Movies of Tarzana opened, a little over eight miles away.
It was closed in January 1974 and reopened in May 1974, renamed Cinema of North Hills and was listed regularly in the Los Angeles Times Independent Theatre Guide into August 1979.
The location was originally described as being at the Northwest corner of Balboa Boulevard and Devonshire Street, between Akron and McDonalds, which are long gone.
