One of the few remaining old school, single screen movie theaters in L.A. Good sound and projection, reasonably comfortable seats, but just as important, it's not a boring black box. This theater actually has style. They seem to alternate between mainstream new movies, eclectic indie...More

Just one movie theater but what a beautiful one! Plenty of leg room is the great thing about this place! Beautiful Egyptian Style inside. Watch the permit parking because we did get a ticket on the side street. Besides that it was an enjoyable experience!

This is an attraction??? An old theater in a not great part of town??? It's old for sure, but that hardly makes it fabulous. For locals only.

If you want to see a movie on a budget, have lots of leg room and be surrounded by snake head sculptures, then this is the place to go. Prices are so affordable that my jaw dropped when I ended up only paying $9.50 at...More
