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

Recently saw LaLaLand at this theatre and it was great. The seats offer more leg room then you will ever need. The sound and picture were excellent!

Wow, I love this theater. The inside is decorated like an Egyptian temple. When we arrived I was unsure about the area that the theater is located. The surrounding buildings are decaying and the area is dirty. BUT, when you enter this theater, you are...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!

Do you want leg room for your movie? No one has more. Do you want a classic theatre redone to remind you what the cookie cutter movie theaters should look like? This is a great place to see s movie

This place takes you back to a time when movies were the new form of entertainment. There was a sizable audience for a Tuesday night so word is spreading. It's not about the technology but the ambience of the place that attracts. Huge leg room,...More

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.
