Cinematheque Club

9055 Santa Monica Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90069
| map |

Dates: 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 & Lounge.

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.
