Granada Theatre

9000 Sunset Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90069
| map

Opened: August 1967 with "King of Hearts." The Granada was a little art house operated by the Walter Reade circuit, who also had the Music Hall and Beverly Canon in Beverly Hills.

It was located two blocks west of San Vicente Blvd. in an office building across the street from the Roxy nightclub. Thanks to John Ptak, the first manager of the theatre, for his photo with the opening attraction on the marquee. It appears on Cinema Treasures.

Architect: John Weidman Design did the interior. John Ptak notes that it featured some Spanish architectural details purchased from the Hearst Estate at San Simeon.

Seating: 379

Status: The building is still there but the space is now a Wells Fargo branch. A closing date is not known but the theatre was still in the 1972 phone book.

More information: See the Cinema Treasures page on the Granada for everything that is known about the theatre.
