Mr Villegas I believe you were talking about the old Wardman theater. I guess it is old, as it would be older than I , but I do remember when it was beautiful.9612 Not quite as nice as the Whittier but nicer than the Roxy. Of course that was when 12 and under got in for a dime and over 12 was .25cents.
A nickel would buy enough candyto last the whole movie. That included The News Reel ,the comedy and two feature films. I miss the old time theaters and hate these new boxes with no personality.
I hope you get your theater.

The reason whittier doesn't have a theatre except for the one uptown, is because there are too many around already. There was a theatre in Whittwood and nobody went there.

The reason the Whittwood Theatres failed was due to the location in a failed mall. Now, the Whittwood is showing signs of life and despite it's poor layout,could plan for a future theatre to compliment the center. I expect the Whittwood to evolve and hopefully integrate the needs and opportunities of business and good shopping center design.

"Now, it is necessary for the country to impeach these justices and correct the travesty of five Catholic (mostly) white men "making" new laws for a much more diverse citizenry."
Wow. Racist much?

What in the world is Mr. Villegas talking about? The Whittier Cinemas is GREAT!!!! It's been completely redone! The movies shown are first run! It's clean and the seats are comfortable. If he's thinking of the old theater that used to be on Whittier Blvd. Mr. Villegas, that one was old, should have been preserved, but wasn't. The Uptown theater manager Darryl, is a very nice young man, who takes pride in his theater! We've been in the NW for 4 years now and wish we had a theater that showed great first run movies! Our theater, in this town, shows cornball movies for the most part, for what seems forever. It might be clean and upgraded, but we miss Whittier Cinemas!
