News About This Theater
- Nov 30, 2007 — ImaginAsian Center to open next month
Originally opened as the Arrow Theatre. On March 24, 1940 it was renamed Teatro Azteca screening Spanish language movies. In 1945 it was renamed Linda Lea Theatre. Closed since the mid-1980’s, the former Linda Lea Theatre underwent drastic renovation in 2006/2007 when only the outer walls were re-purposed. The rebuild was for ImaginAsian Entertainment, which operates the ImaginAsian Theatre in New York City and a cable television network. The new ImaginAsian Center opened on December 1, 2007 as a showcase for Asian and Asian-American features as well as film festivals and live events. Since 2008, it has been known as the Downtown Independent Theatre, and has its own page here on Cinema Treasures # 22371.
