Before the Age of Multiplexes #15


The Culver Theatre, Culver City, CA. After being converted to three screens in the seventies it closed in the nineties, was gutted and restored, and is now the Kirk Douglas Theatre for the Performing Arts.

Man, oh, Man, do I remember the Culver. I worked at MGM in the 80's, and whenever we felt the need for a gory slasher film, we hit the Culver (it was right across the street). It has turned into a grindhouse by that time, and was badly converted into a multiplex. We saw all the "greats" -- the original Friday the 13th, Don't Go into The House, Maniac, and countless more. I also saw one of my favorite "B-type" movies ever there -- "The Sword and The Sorcerer." I'm glad to see the old girl has received a nice makeover, but I miss the bad old days of the place, too.
