Au revoir, Fairfax Theater

A staple to film geeks connoisseurs in Los Angeles, the Fairfax Theater off of Beverly Blvd and Fairfax (owned by Regency Theaters), the old theater will be permanently closing it’s doors to the public.  Aside from competing theaters (it rests across the street from The Grove), the theater took in some roof damage during the recent rain storms and can’t afford the repairs.

Often showing smaller, independent films as well as main stream fare before it his the DVD shelf, the Fairfax was also popular for it’s Friday @ Midnight Screenings. Jeff and I happened to attend a sold out late-night showing of The Big Lebowski last year (shocking!) and it was a real hoot. So long Fairfax.

  1. This makes me so sad. I have enjoyed many a midnight screening there, and quite a few sundays catching up on movies that had been out for a bit.

    If life were like an 80’s movie (and sometimes I wish it were), a group of us rag-tag pals would get together and put on some sort of party/show/event to raise money to save our favorite nightspot/movie house. sigh. I can even see the music montage in my head.
