They can probably buy a theater in Glendale too instead of renting, there are a few off Brand blvd that are old/antiquated. Figures...I move to Hollywood and Laemmle moves to the valley. Thanks fer nothin.
    if you are talking about the old 6 screen UA north hollywood theater on victory between the freeway and laurel canyon, it is open again. I believe it may be a discount/cheapseat venue, as it is showing movies that have been out for awhile.

    Between that theater, the ice rink at Laurel Plaza and Valley Plaza Hobbies, that is basically where I spent my summers in the seventies.

    Alamo Drafthouse Among Companies Vying For Renovated LA Theater | /Film

    The Alamo Drafthouse has been planning on expanding into New York and Los Angeles for well over a year. To date, nothing has been finalized but a new report by The Wrap says they’re one of three companies in the running to occupy a Westwood theater that’s currently under renovations to include six screens with food and drink options. Has Alamo found their Los Angeles Drafthouse? Read more after the jump.

    The theater in question, according to The Wrap, is the former AMC Avco Center 4 which closed in December and is located on Wilshire Blvd. It’s about to undergo a “multimillion-dollar renovation, and offer food and drink service for seated patrons” including two new screens. That would make it the only multiplex of its kind in Westwood, right around the corner from the campus of UCLA.

    According to the report, three companies are competing for the lease: Cinepolis, the Alamo Drafthouse and iPic Theaters. The Wrap’s sources say that Cinepolis, a Mexican-based company, is the leader.

    A Drafthouse representative said “We don’t have any news to share for an LA expansion at this time.”

    An announcement is expected later this week so until then, we can’t say for sure, but it seems like this won’t end up as an Alamo Drafthouse. The best news for Los Angeles filmgoers is that the Alamo Drafthouse was in the running and is still out there, pounding the pavement and trying to find a location in the area to bring their awesome brand of filmgoing.

    Also, as a reminder, there’s an Alamo Drafthouse currently being build in Littleton, Colorado plus, the company did their top ten films of the 2011 and you can read it at that link.

    It’s no small task to open a movie theater, let alone one that serves food and, more importantly, booze. That raises a whole other issue that has to be taken care of in additon to everything else. The Alamo Drafthouse has all the problems of a major restaurant, bar and movie theater rolled into one.

    Do you think that Westwood location is a good one for a potential Drafthouse or do you hope they show up somewhere else?
    Well, it looks like we are getting closer to having an Alamo Drafthouse Butt-Numb-A-Thon in Los Angeles...Beer and movies!!!!

    Starting Friday @ Cinefamily...
    MARGARET
    "The best film of 2011" -- LA Weekly


    SCREENING SCHEDULE (all tickets - $10/free for Cinefamily members!)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Friday, January 27th: 4:15pm, 7:30pm, 10:45pm
    Saturday, January 28th: 12:00pm, 6:30pm
    Sunday, January 29th: 12:30pm, 3:45pm, 7:00pm, 10:15pm
    Monday, January 30th: 4:15pm, 10:15pm
    Tuesday, January 31st: 4:15pm, 7:30pm, 10:45pm
    Wednesday, February 1st: 4:45pm, 10:30pm
    Thursday, February 2nd: 4:15pm, 7:30pm, 10:45pm

    Rare is it that a picture praised as “the best film of 2011” (LA Weekly) can be given no theatrical release, save for a lone under-the-radar Oscar-qualifying run -- but due to Top Ten List inclusion from critics across the country, and the passionate word-of-mouth campaign dubbed “Project Margaret”, Cinefamily helped fight for your right to see director Kenneth Longeran’s magnum opus on the big screen.

    Featuring an amazing all-star cast of Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, Matthew Broderick, Kieran Culkin and Jeannie Berlin, Margaret is a densely-layered tale of teenage angst in the post-9/11 age, with Paquin as a NYC high schooler who feels certain she played a role in a traffic accident that claimed a woman's life, and who must cope with the loss of innocence that comes with emotional responsibility. Shot in 2005, edited over the course of an astounding six-year period and emerging in a final cut supervised by Martin Scorsese, Longeran’s follow-up to the indie smash You Can Count On Me was subject to the most fascinating movie business controversy of the last few years, before dropping off the map. Come get on-board Project Margaret, in a second chance fit for what Time Out New York calls “frayed-edges filmmaking at its finest”!
    Dir. Kenneth Longeran, 2011, 35mm, 150 min.

    Not one that would normally be on my must watch list, but I have read a LOT of the press about this one and I may have to sneak out to that nooner on Saturday.

    Hey Adgy...
    Kill List...Special one week run
    http://www.cinefamily.org/films/kill...-one-week-run/

    Friday, February 3rd: 5:15pm, 7:30pm, 9:50pm
    Saturday, February 4th: 3:00pm, 5:15pm, 7:30pm, 9:50pm
    Sunday, February 5th: 3:00pm, 5:15pm, 7:30pm, 9:50pm
    Monday, February 6th: 5:45pm, 8:00pm, 10:20pm
    Tuesday,February 7th: 5:45pm, 8:00pm, 10:20pm

    Thursday, February 9th: 5:45pm, 8:00pm, 10:20pm





    The most wickedly vibrant genre film to emerge out of England in years, Kill List is a tour de excessive force that might be as close as a hitman story will ever come to total filmic transcendence. Leading a cast full of breakout performances, Neil Maskell plays an increasingly bombastic and completely terrifying contract killer who comes out of an early retirement at the promise of a big payoff — handed to him by an organization more ominous than any such group of characters ever seen in the pantheon of gangster movies. Throughout this constantly morphing cinematic melange, director Ben Wheatly (Down Terrace) injects scalding fresh blood by diving into a dizzyingly unpredictable succession of genres, from nuanced marriage drama to heat attack-inducing horror, all seamlessly stitched together with the visual and sonic flair of a true auteur. Whether you worship at the altar of art house or the church of the midnight mass, Kill List will make you a convert.
    Dir. Ben Wheatley, 2011, 35mm, 95 min.
