The possibilities of new housing and art house theater coming to Newhall are getting closer to reality.
In a recent City Council meeting held in Santa Clarita, a 3-0 vote was cast to allow the city to begin negotiations with Laemmle Theaters to construct a
six screen “arthouse” theater in Old Town Newhall.
This is a big deal, considering the fact that the two Megaplexes in Santa Clarita (One at Westfield Valencia Town Center, the other located on Soledad in Canyon Country) mostly show blockbuster films. Otherwise, true arthouse cinema fans must go to either the San Fernando Valley or Los Angeles to see quality, smaller budget or independent films…or wait until they hit the streaming channels. The proposed theater will be located at the corner of Main Street and Lyons Avenue, across from the Old Town Newhall Library.
