LA JOLLA, Calif. – The Landmark La Jolla Village Theatre showed its final film Sunday night, a documentary called IRIS.

The theater opened its doors in 1979 and specialized in documentaries, indie movies and foreign films. There are only four theaters inside, but they held a big fan base.

“Another theater bites the dust. It’s getting harder and harder to find that same comfort,” said movie-goer Eric Grimmer.

“It’s a community. This is small-America theater. You go, you know your friends,” said movie-goer Valerie Murphy.

The two remaining Landmark theaters in San Diego are the Hillcrest Cinemas and the Ken in Kensington.

A Nordstroms Rack is expected to replace the La Jolla space.
