The Oscar-winning writer-director projects that the historic location will reopen around the holidays.
Quentin Tarantino is the proud owner of two movie theaters in Los Angeles.
On Monday, The Oscar-winning writer-director Quentin Tarantino informed actor and podcaster Dax Shepard that he had purchased a single-screen movie theater on Sunset and Hollywood Boulevards. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020, the theater has been closed. According to the Vista’s website, “we are hard at work preparing a more stunning and sparkling Vista Theatre for you later this year.”
Tarantino boldly declared, “I purchased the Vista on Sunset,” without delving into the financial details. “We’ll probably open it around the holidays. And, once again, it’s all about the movie. It won’t be a revival meeting place. We’ll screen new movies when they come out and provide us with a film print. It won’t be the same as the New Beverly [Cinema]. The New Beverly has its own distinct personality. The Vista is something of a crown jewel. We’ll play older films, but it’ll be as if we’re doing a four-night run.”
In 2007, Tarantino bought the New Beverly Cinema. Last month, the 7165 Beverly Blvd. theater, which primarily shows older films, reopened. The Vista, however, will mostly show new films, according to the filmmaker of “Pulp Fiction” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
The Vista Theatre first opened its doors on October 9, 1923, and featured both cinema and vaudeville shows. It seats 400 patrons.
Tarantino was harsh on major theater chains that were forced to close sites owing to the pandemic, claiming that the watching experience had altered too much for the worst.
