Beverly Center cinemas closing

For those who remember when the Cineplex on the top level of Beverly Cinema was a pretty hot ticket, this is somewhat shocking. From Cinema Treasures:

Opened on July 16, 1982 by Cineplex, the Beverly Center then contained the most screens of any theater in the United States and had a total seating capacity of 1,879.

It's now called the Beverly Center 13 Cinemas. The space is destined to be a Forever 21, says a poster at Cinema Treasures.
