UA Valley Plaza 6  North Hollywood CA  July 1994 2

This was a kind of mall six-plex without a mall. It was opened in December 17, 1976 and operated by United Artists. Damaged by the Northridge earthquake, the theater closed for a while, then reopened in on July 1, 1994, but never got back the business it had before. Competition from the Sherman Oaks Galleria and the AMC Burbank was too much for it to handle.

It was closed on September 23, 2004. Taken over by the Regency Theatres chain, it reopened in late-October 2010. It was closed on March 17, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It never reopened.

re: stateless post of 11/21/06:

The exploitation fare is exactly what drew me from West L.A. to this UA. This is where I caught a midnight show of “Dawn of the Dead” in 1980. Later pics included “Night of the Comet” and a twin-bill of “The Mutilator” (ad line: By pick… By axe… By sword… BYE-BYE!) and Linda Blair in “Savage Island.” But the best day at the movies in North Hollywood for this genre hound had to be the spring ‘81 triple feature of “Friday the 13th Part 2” with “Graduation Day,” plus a sneak preview of “Evilspeak.” Quite a dose of latex and Karo syrup. Those were the days, indeed.

I have been to the Valley 6 twelve times since 11/12/10. At first business was slow , but it has really picked up, even on weekdays, and of course on $1.50 Tuesdays. Some movies that falter at the box office quickly move to this theater, including “Larry Crowne.”

$1 hot dogs are a bargain and the kids combo(no age restriction)costs only $5 for a drink, popcorn and small candy. I agree that Regency knows how to run a bargain venue as I admire their running of the Academy.

I only live 1-½ miles from the Valley 6 and use it as a backstop to catch a missed movie or when I am too tired to go in to L A.

I have attended this venue 13 times in 2011; the 12/20 evening showing of “In Time” drew 180 patrons. Unbelievably you can see a 3D movie like the recent Captain America for only a $2 surcharge(as low as $3.50 for Tuesdays). This may be the lowest 3D price in America. Compare that to Grauman’s Chinese price increase now gouging a top price of $19 for 3D!

I think the opening date for this theater is not right.I was in Junior High when this theater opened.Sun Valley Junior High,BTW.It was a really big deal for all the kids in that area.I want to say spring or summer of 1976.It couldnt have been much earlier than that.The idea of not having to wait for a movie to come to one of the big older theaters,like the Magnolia,or the Lankershim or the Cornell(which was just about done by that time) was really something.If you went a little farther out,you could go to the Americana multiplex in Panarama City.

This theatre shows up prominently in the 2013 romcom “Don Jon”. There is an auditorium scene and long tracking shot down the entrance corridor and concession stand area.
