Studio veteran Chris McGurk is ready to make another change to his home lineup. The chief executive of Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp., who quietly sold his Beverly Hills estate for $16 million earlier this year, has put his Malibu home back on the market for $7.95 million.

Sitting on 65 feet of ocean frontage in the desirable Encinal Bluffs area, the Marshall Lewis-designed house is visually dramatic. Bold geometric sections are topped by a protruding copper roof for a distinctive look. A motor court with a circular turnstile fronts the property.

Inside, nearly 5,650 square feet of polished space includes an oversized kitchen, a living room with a steel-clad fireplace, a formal dining room, an elevator, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The master suite, with a fireplace and a black granite-lined bath, opens to a private sun deck.


The lower level invites with an entertainment room, an indoor lap pool, a Jacuzzi and a sauna. Unobstructed views extend up and down the coastline.

McGurk bought the house more than a decade ago for $6.675 million, records show.

Mark Gruskin and Stephen Shapiro of Westside Estate Agency hold the listing.

The 69-year-old McGurk is a longtime film and television executive who previously served as the president of Walt Disney Studios and COO of MGM. He was named chairman and CEO of Cinedigm in 2011.
