Opened: November 2006. Closed in 2011 or so.

The MPark ran first run American movies with Korean subtitles and Korean movies with English subtitles. It was the first US venture for a popular South Korean chain.

It was upstairs in a Wilshire shopping mall, the Wilshire Galleria, catering largely to Koreans. At the snack bar you could get your favorite Korean movie going snacks such as dried squid.

The building was formerly the I. Magnin store. It was constructed in 1939 and remodeled in 1959. It had closed as a department store in 1990. Joe Vogel on Cinema Treasures reports that the building was a design of Myron Hunt of Hunt and Chambers. The location is a block west of Vermont Ave.

Seating: 250, 174, 165, 174.
