Gardena Cinema was built in 1946 and is an old-fashioned single screen walk-in movie theater with a seating capacity of 800. Our large screen is over 35 feet wide. We also have a Dolby Digital© 5.1 surround sound system to enhance the original theater atmosphere.
Gardena Cinema is the only old-fashioned single screen movie theater in the South Bay area that shows first-run Hollywood movies. We have been showing first-run Hollywood movies since 1995, starting with “How to Make an American Quilt” starring Winona Ryder. Gardena Cinema is a family-operated establishment. Currently, the Kim family has operated the cinema since 1976.
We have shown films from all over the world, including South Korea, Mexico, and Japan. The Gardena Cinema was briefly known as the Morning Calm Cinema and the Eden Theater while it exhibited movies from South Korea during the early 1990’s.
