To mark Laemmle Theatres 75th anniversary as a local, family-owned business, Film Journal International just published a very informative piece about us: our history, philosophy about our place in L.A. County communities, and plans for the future.
Film Journal International reports: “What has remained unchanged from our last report is the “community commitment” of the company. Owned and operated in the second and third generations by Greg and his father, Robert Laemmle, the circuit was established in 1938, when Bob’s father Max and his uncle Kurt Laemmle took over a neighborhood theatre in Highland Park. (In case you are noticing the family resemblance, Carl Laemmle, the founder of Universal Pictures, was a second cousin to circuit founders Max and Kurt.)”
