The New Beverly Cinema opened for business in the Fairfax District in 1978, and served as everything from a vaudeville theater, a nightclub called Slapsie Maxie’s and various movie house incarnations from foreign films to porn. It nearly shut its doors in 2007, but thanks to a cash infusion from one Quentin Tarantino, it survived, and now plays host to regular screenings of classic films. Courtesy of the controversial director, it also has a beautiful new façade and marquee, shiny new fixtures and air conditioning. Oh, and it shows lots –lots – of Tarantino films.
