Los Feliz 3 movie theater reopens, with American Cinematheque picking the films

After a year-and-a-half, a presidential election, and an international pandemic, the Los Feliz 3 theater on Vermont Avenue is finally reopening this Saturday.

The bathrooms have been refurbished, the carpeting and the paint are new, the sound system has been upgraded, patrons can expect to see a new 35mm changeover system, a new screen and screen masking, and new lighting and equipment for Q&As, according to Anna Ogunkunle, a spokesperson for the theater.

But the biggest change of all will be the programming.  The schedule for the theater has been taken over by American Cinematheque, the nonprofit cultural-arts and film-preservation group that also programs movies for the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica and the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

Management of the theater, however, will still be overseen by the owner, Vintage Cinemas.
