Los Angeles, CA: Bigfoot Crest Theatre to Close for Renovations, But Will It Reopen?

Posted on Saturday, October 1st, 2011. Last Updated on Tuesday, December 6th, 2011 4:11 PM by Scott Jentsch

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the Bigfoot Crest Theatre in Los Angeles, California is closing indefinitely for renovations, but that the future for the theater is not yet set:

[Ashley Jordan, chief executive of Big Foot Entertainment] said the Bigfoot Crest Theater -- a Los Angeles landmark founded in 1941 by Frances Seymour Fonda, wife of actor Henry Fonda -- needed renovations. The newly appointed executive said it was not clear how extensive the upgrades would be, or when the theater would reopen.

"We're going to assess the future and how much we want to put into it,'' Jordan said. "We have to figure out what we are going to do with it."

Big Foot Entertainment purchased the landmark theater in 2010 and tapped Carmike Cinemas to operate it. The fact that they will not commit to a reopening date makes one think that they don't know what to do with it, and there's a chance they're not going to reopen it at all.
