News About This Theater
- Jul 2, 2009 — Laserium takes over Hollywood's Vine Theatre
Originally a restaurant which opened in 1933 as Henry’s Restaurant and in March 1934 it was Perry’s Brass Rail. In late-1936 it became the Weiss Cafe. It was converted to the plans of architect S. Charles Lee into the 675-seat Admiral Theatre which opened on May 16, 1940 with Danielle Darrieux & John Loder in “His Majesty’s Mistress” & H.B. Warner in “Torpedoed”. In the 1960’s it was known as Rector’s Admiral Theatre. In 1969 following a remodel, it was renamed Vine Theatre and the venerable movie house showed second-run movies at a bargain price. After seventy years, though, the Vine Theatre ended its daily movie programming in October 2007.
The theatre then was used for church services, private screenings, and location shooting. In 2009, it became a Lazerium, which closed in December 2009. The Vine Theatre was then used for special events, for hire and occasional movies.
In May 2015 it reopened as a Dolby showcase theatre and now operates as a private (for hire) movies theatre with a reduced capacity of 70-seats.
