The Nuart Theatre was built in 1930 and opened on August 16, 1930 with the World Premiere of “Sweethearts on Parade” starring Alice White. It had a seating capacity for 660. From 1941 until 1954 it was operated by Fox West Coast Theatres. Since the early-1970’s, this theatre has been a staple of the Los Angeles art house scene. It is perhaps best known for its blockbuster, lines-around-the-block screening of the director’s cut of Ridley Scott’s classic film “Blade Runner”.
The screenings were some of the best in the the theatre’s history and ultimately inspired not only the theatrical re-release of “Blade Runner”, but the re-release of dozens of other films.
