What year was the UA Marina Del Rey 6 built? Furthermore, does anybody know when the shopping mall with the AMC theaters just to the north of Maxella (has the AMC theater in it) was built?

Obviously some time after this was made.


Mud lake Culver City California 1950's by Gayle Ramey - YouTube

(Mud Lake was where the Marina is now.)

Have you checked Cinema Treasures?

All I can add is they've been there for at least 10 years.

Very few people, if any, will miss it. Unlike the Fox Venice not far away, whose loss is still lamented 25 years after its closure.

Well I'll miss it! My mom took me there to see The Empire Strikes Back, and then in high school it was a somewhat popular theater for the Uni crowd to visit on occasion.

Damn, every time I turn around this city gets more cold war neutral.

Compared to the Fox Venice,less than a mile to the north?

The Fox Venice was a beautiful single screen theatre built during the time the westside was being built up after World War II, and it symbolized the glory days of Los Angeles (mid 20th century). 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.

What's the deal with the shopping complex to the north, just across Maxella? When was it built? I'd guess in the early 90's. BTW, what was there beforehand?

Furthermore, what was previously where those condos(?) are being built just behind the petrol station on Lincoln?

I used to hang out in that shopping center with the UA theatre in the 80's -- Perry's Pizza, Starcade, etc. -- and sneaking in/out to see R-rated movies. The AMC complex was built in the early 90's IIRC, and I don't remember what was there before.
