The Sundance Kid will soon come to Sunset Boulevard.
Robert Redford's Sundance Cinemas announced Monday that it will open its Sundance Sunset Cinema on Aug. 31 after an extensive remodel of the former Sunset 5 Theater in West Hollywood. Sundance took over the lease of the cinema on Dec. 1 from Laemmle Theatres, which operated the Sunset 5 for two decades.
Sundance Cinemas, based in Westlake Village, Calif., operates theaters in Madison, Wis., San Francisco and Houston.
The theater circuit offers a range of alternative programming, lectures and screening series, taking advantage of Redford's annual Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, and the Sundance cable TV channel.
Sunset Cinema, at Sunset Boulevard and Crescent Heights Boulevard, will specialize in American independent and foreign language titles and will offer many of premium services already familiar to patrons of the ArcLight Hollywood.
