Laemmle Playhouse Pasadena

After announcing that its flagship West Los Angeles location is closing at the end of May, Landmark Theaters announced Thursday that it has negotiated a long-term lease agreement for the Playhouse 7 cinema in Pasadena, taking over the venue from its original operators, Laemmle Theaters .

“The Playhouse acquisition is important for Landmark, as we’re able to continue the tradition of showing quality film to Pasadena’s moviegoing community. This theater has a deep history, which we look forward to honoring and building upon in the years ahead,” said Landmark President Kevin Holloway in a statement.

Opened by Laemmle Theaters in 1999, the Playhouse 7 was sold by the family-owned specialty chain in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. When theaters reopened, Laemmle continued to operate the location over the past year through a leaseback agreement.

Landmark says it will briefly close the Playhouse 7 and reopen it later this summer with updated sound and projection systems. After its reopening, the Playhouse 7 will also receive new seating and expanded concessions and alcohol selections.
