The Buena Park Theatre was opened December 19, 1958 with Glenn Ford in “Torpedo Run” & Cyd Charisse in “Party Girl”. It was one of two identical theatres in the Los Angeles area that were opened by Robert L. Lippert in new shopping centers. It was designed so that it could easily be adapted for commercial/retail use if cinema use failed.
Located just a few blocks away from Knott’s Berry Farm’s main entrance, it was a very plain boxy venue with a very small lobby. In the 1990’s it was known as the Studio Adultland Theatre, offering straight porn movies, and was closed in December 1999.
The theatre then briefly house a ‘Concert of Superstars’ attraction. It operates as a skateboard shop today.
