It opened in spring 1971 as an 82 seat restaurant called the Cinematheque Club showing classic films. The location was just east of Doheny Dr.
Seating evidently was more
restaurant-style than theatre-style. The initial booking was "A Star Is
Born" with Judy Garland. Cinema Treasures lists this one as the D'Anton
Cinematheque, perhaps a later name. It didn't last long as a classics
venue, by fall of 1972 having morphed into David's Tom Cat Theatre &
Status: It's now a Busy Body Home Fitness store.
More Information: See the Cinema Treasures page on the D'Anton for all the data there is.
