Visit Landmark Theatres, Los Angeles
Landmark Theatres is the nation’s largest theatre chain dedicated to exhibiting and marketing independent film and has been known to show artistic and avant-garde films since its founding in 1974. In addition to promoting independent films, some mainstream movies and blockbusters are shown as well and The Landmark always seems to have a great line-up of films to choose from. Other advantages that draw in a crowd are the gourmet concession items, on-line ticketing, stadium seating with comfortable leather chairs and great customer service. Try watching a movie in one of the Screening Lounges where you can get cozy on one of the comfy couches or love seats as well. Be sure and reserve your seats and purchase tickets in advance on-line, especially movie premieres, which can sell out quickly. Parking is free for three hours in the underground lot at The Westside Pavilion and many restaurants can be found along Pico Blvd. to grab dinner before a show. The wine bar on-site is huge as well and makes for a great place to gather with friends and socialize after your movie.
