Laemmle Theatres President, Greg Laemmle said:
We are excited to bring a Laemmle theater to booming Glendale for the first time and offer filmic opportunities to moviegoers of the Jewel City and their neighbors in Atwater Village, Eagle Rock, Los Feliz and Silver Lake.
As L.A.’s population continues to grow and it becomes more daunting to get from one place to another, we are committed to making it more convenient for people who want to see fine films in a theatrical setting.”
The Laemmle Glendale is part of the “L Lofts” Glendale, which includes 42 units of fully leased housing and the Panda Restaurant Group’s Panda Inn Test Kitchen.
The Laemmle Glendale will be managed by Cassie Gratton. a former manager of the Playhouse 7 in Pasadena, and a current general manager of the Claremont 5 Theater.
The Laemmle circuit is planning to expand with the Laemmle Newhall (in Santa Clarita) in 2019 and just beyond that the Laemmle Azusa. Laemmle is also moving ahead with the renovation of the historic Reseda theater at Sherman Way in Reseda.
The Laemmle was founded by brothers Max and Kurt Laemmle in 1938.
We strive to inform, educate, and work together to make a better world for all of us, locally and globally.
