After years of false starts and delays, finally some good news for NoHo Arts District residents: A 7-screen Laemmle movie theatre complex is going in at 5200 Lankershim Boulevard, according to NoHo Arts District.com. Ground breaking is scheduled for next week, and construction should be done by the end of the year.The eagerly-awaited movie theatre is the third phase of the NoHo Commons development, which includes the recently relocated Phil's Diner.

City Councilman Tom LaBonge agrees that the movie theatre is a welcome addition to the neighborhood known for its many small, independent live theatres and art galleries: "The addition of Laemmle Theaters will solidify and enhance the creative spirit that the NoHo Arts District has come to represent in the City of Los Angeles."
