Luxury Five-Screen Bay Theater at Caruso’s Palisades Village Will Open on October 22 with Jeymes Samuel’s “The Harder They Fall”

Opening weekend to include free family screenings of “Vivo” and “The Mitchells vs. The Machines”

Hollywood, Calif., (October 15, 2021) — Netflix and Caruso announced today that the entertainment company will keep the legendary Bay Theater in Palisades Village open in a first of its kind partnership.  The cinema will reopen with a must-see line-up of films on October 22. On opening weekend, the Bay Theater will kick off with Jeymes Samuel’s The Harder They Fall, starring Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, Delroy Lindo, LaKeith Stanfield, Danielle Deadwyler, Edi Gathegi, R.J. Cyler, Damon Wayans Jr., Deon Cole with Regina King and Idris Elba, as well as free screenings of two family-favorite animated films Vivo and The Mitchells vs. The Machines with tickets available first-come first-served at the box office.  An exciting lineup of films debuting later this year include Red Notice starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, and Adam McKay’s Don’t Look Up starring Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jennifer Lawrence.  Netflix plans to use the theater for special events, screenings of beloved classic films, and theatrical releases of its films.

“The Bay is one of those rare places that’s modern but also feels like a throwback experience of your local main street cinema,” said Scott Stuber, head of global films at Netflix.   “Together with Caruso, we’re excited to welcome movie lovers back to Palisades Village and join the local community.   In addition to premieres and theatrical releases of upcoming Netflix films, audiences can look forward to family-oriented film programming, 35mm screenings of beloved classic films, in-person appearances and Q&As, free public events and much more. Thank you to Palisades Village and Caruso for the warm welcome.”

“We are proud to welcome Netflix to Palisades Village and offer our guests access to their exceptional programming,” remarked Rick Caruso, Founder and CEO of Caruso. “We take great pride in our pioneering approach to retail and hospitality and have found the perfect partner in Netflix, who share our passion for innovation. The coming together of two companies at the forefront of their industries will allow for a first-of-its-kind environment that will bring magic back to the movie-going experience.”

The Bay Theater at Palisades Village first opened in 2018 as an homage to its historic 1940s namesake.  Anchoring Caruso’s walkable town center, the theatre features a striking new marquee based on an original design by prolific motion picture theatre designer S. Charles Lee. The state-of-the-art multiplex features five ultra-lux, customized screening rooms, an intimate lobby bar, and cutting-edge sound and projection technology. Each auditorium features top-of-the-line leather reclining seats, reserved seating and in-theater food and beverage service available at the push of a button.

Caruso’s Palisades Village is a centerpiece within the California coastal community with more than 40 highly curated boutiques and eateries, a grocer, luxury residences, and an expansive park.

Since late 2019 Netflix operates The Paris Theater, one of the oldest art houses in the United States, and the last single-screen theater in New York.  The company and the American Cinematheque also joined forces to ensure the long-term future of the historic Egyptian Theater in Hollywood.  The theater is currently being restored and will open in 2022.

The Bay Theater, located at 15255 Palisades Village Lane, Pacific Palisades, CA, will have ticket prices ranging from $12 for adults, and $10 for seniors and children. Taxes and special format charges may apply.  During the opening weeks, free popcorn and beverages will be served at all shows.  True to Caruso’s commitment to offering unparalleled guest experiences, Netflix will also work with Palisades Village on a robust calendar of complementary events located at the center’s beloved Park.

Tickets for The Harder They Fall available at:

To claim complimentary tickets for Vivo or The Mitchells vs. The Machines please stop by the Bay Theater box office Monday, October 18th through Thursday, October 21st from 3:00-6:00pm. Advance tickets limited 5 per person while supplies last.
