Laemmle CEO at Q and A on Saturday
by Mick Rhodes | email@example.com
Laemmle Theatres President and CEO Greg Laemmle will discuss the future of the Laemmle Claremont 5 Theatre on Saturday, January 14 at a Q and A following a 1 p.m. screening of “Only in Theaters,” the new documentary about the long history and recent travails of the Los Angeles-based Laemmle arthouse chain.
Laemmle told the Courier on Monday that the theater, which had been on the market at $4.7 million for more than a year, will remain open through 2023. What will happen after that appears to be up to the community.
“Escrow has been cancelled,” Laemmle said. “We’re prepared to give everybody a chance. This is another opportunity for people to show they care about having this facility in the city.”
Saturday’s Q and A will be moderated by columnist and author David Allen.
Tickets are available at laemmle.com/theater/claremont-5 or at the door. The theater is at 450 W. Second St.
