The movie theaters in the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza will be undergoing a renovation that will transform them into a "state-of-the-art" movie house.

The owners of the mall, Capri Urban Investors LLC, announced the upgrade Wednesday and said that the theaters would be closed until the 2011 holiday season.

The theaters, which will have a new operator, will be transformed into a multiplex featuring stadium seating, digital technology, 3-D screens and new decor, the firm said. The upgrade will be part of a remodeling project that will include other parts of the mall.

"Transforming the mall is about giving shoppers more choices and better amenities, and having a state-of-the-art multiplex is an important step in that direction," said Ken Lombard, president of Capri Urban Investors.
