Two members of the Los Angeles Commission on Disability have called for an investigation of the newly built, $14-million multiplex theater in Woodland Hills alleging that it fails to meet state and federal laws on wheelchair accessibility. Although the AMC theater was designed to provide a state-of-the-art moviegoing experience, commission members Kirk Kilgour and Norma Vescovo said Friday that the design ignores the needs of wheelchair users.

Rebuild L.A. has already spent most of the $3-million federal grant it received for operating costs and will need to raise additional private contributions or public funds to stay afloat into 1995, top staffers disclosed at a quarterly board of directors meeting Thursday. In RLA's first 13 months of operation, 70% of its spending went for wages and administrative costs and 17% for program services, according to RLA's first fiscal audit released Thursday.

Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan said Thursday that he will recommend a prominent corporate chieftain as the next head of RLA in hopes of refocusing the riot recovery agency's efforts on small-business development, rather than on social programs or large-scale manufacturing. If Riordan's recommendations are followed, it is likely that the leadership of RLA will be turned over from a multiethnic panel of four chairs to a lone white, male executive.
