|Home: BigScreen Journal - Los Angeles, CA: Laemmle's Sunset 5 to Close, Become Sundance Location|
The Los Angeles Times reported earlier this month that the Laemmle's Sunset 5 in Los Angeles, California will be closing as Laemmle Theatres moves out and Sundance Cinemas moves in.
It's the end of an era for a West Hollywood movie house that has been a mainstay of the independent cinema scene for the last 20 years.
Laemmle Theatres will stop operating the Sunset 5 at the end of the month after being unable to come to terms with the landlord on a new lease.
Robert Redford's Sundance Cinemas will take over the five-screen complex Dec. 1 and will temporarily close it for renovations, with plans to reopen in late spring.

The article goes on to mention that Laemmle is opening a new seven-screen location about eight miles away in North Hollywood, the Laemmle's NoHo 7, which is scheduled to open later this year.
