Beverly Hills, CA: Laemmle's Music Hall Closed

Posted on Friday, November 22nd, 2019 5:17 PM

The Laemmle's Music Hall in Beverly Hills, California closed Thursday, November 21, 2019.

The theater's closing was announced earlier this week on the web site for Laemmle Theatres:

After a 45-Year Run, Laemmle to Leave the Music Hall.

November 20, 2019 by Jordan D.M.

With a wistful acknowledgement that all things must pass, Laemmle Theatres announces that Thursday, November 21, 2019 will be our last day screening movies at the Music Hall. We began operating the theater in 1974 and have shown literally thousands of movies from all over the planet. Bergman’s SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE was one of the first films we played there. LA CAGE AUX FOLLES and MY LIFE AS A DOG were hits at the Music Hall. One tiny highlight of countless funny highlights was Jason Schwartzman standing on the desk in the tiny office behind the box office in 1999 to autograph the RUSHMORE poster on the wall with “Rock on, Music Hall! Jason Schwartzman.”

Laemmle Theatres President Greg Laemmle said, “It has been my family’s privilege to operate the Music Hall for 45 years but it’s time to end our stewardship. For the sake of efficiency, we plan to use the other screens in our circuit to provide a platform for the types of films we’ve been showing in Beverly Hills.”

There is a distinct possibility of a renaissance, and movies and moviegoers will return to 9036 Wilshire Boulevard, but if it happens it will be after a hiatus and with different operators.

Moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Laemmle's Ahrya Fine Arts Theatre and the AMC Century City 15. In addition to the Fine Arts Theatre, Laemmle Theatres operates seven other locations, all in California.
