Yeah, the Daytona racing game!

At the time, 1999, 2000, those racing games were pretty sophisticated. And pretty popular. I never put in enough money to try and beat them. But they were fun for a few plays.

I remember they had...pacman? galaga, some of the old 80's games across from them. That arcade didn't have many 80's games though.

The only other arcades I know in LA....there was one over in westwood. And there's one on the santa monica pier.

And shakeys pizza in santa monica and culver city are gone, they had some games.

Attended college in LA in the mid-late 80's and the UA Cinema's were there in Marina Del Rey. I recall it was a big Friday-Saturday night hangout spot. Haven't been there in many years, would like to see what it's like now.

The UA Marina Del Rey 6 closed about three months ago, and the new AMC Cinema 6, one of their new 'Dine-In' movie theatres, opened three weeks ago across the street next to Gelson's Market.

They're building some condos on the corner of Lincoln & the Nixon Freeway (Hwy. 90) where a Carl's Jr. & Marie Callendars once stood until they were demolished several years ago.

Hi I worked at Perrys Pizza in marina Del Rey from 1977 to 1983. The arcade, theater, ice cream shop and the doughnut shop were all there along with the record place that I forgot the name of. I traded pizza for movies. The place was crazy. Anyway I had a lot of fun there.

It went on to symbolize the free wheeling anarchic Venice of the '70s where anything went (and usually did).

The Marina 6 was a generic, ugly multiplex which symbolized the era which represented the decline of Los Angeles (the 1980s) and when the fun was dying out.

You are in a very, very tiny minority. If you look on the Cinema Treasures site for that theatre you'll notice little in the way of affection for that theatre. If you go to the Cinema Treasures site for the Fox Venice you'll notice plenty of affection for the theatre.

I know this is old, but people will miss the UA because many of us had lots of fond memories there as kids. I didn't really get to experience Fox Venice.
