Located in the Best Plaza Shopping Center on E. Barstow Avenue, to the east of N. Blackstone Avenue. The UA Movies 4 opened in December 19 1975, and was around the corner from the UA Northgate Cinemas 4 on N. Blackstone Avenue, that opened in 1971.

Both these plexes closed about 1998 when the Edwards 21 opened. The UA Movies 4 had a slightly larger seating capacity than the UA Northgate 4. It has been converted to retail use as Hobbytown USA.

I would correct the opening to December 1975. I remember buying the first ticket and the film was Sam Peckinpah’s The Killer Elite which had it’s national release 12/19/75. I kept the ticket stub which was number 000001.

now a food max. which i think has replaced the building that the cinema was in. either that or it was located next to the food max. however i think it was where the food max was because my mom also cooperates the idea that it was where he food max was saying that she remembers the cinema was where the food max is.

The current Food Max was never a movie theater. To the south of it facing Barstow St was the UA Movies 4 now a Hobbytown USA. The building to the north of Food Max facing Blackstone Ave was the Festival Cinemas now the service department of a Nissan dealership.
