This is one of my favorite movie theatre, it's local and not expensive. They have movies from independent producers that you will not see in the big movie chains . And you have the Claremont Village just a few steps away for dinning and shopping.

In these days of blockbuster films and inane sequels, it is a gift to have Laemmle Theatres in Claremont, California. Laemmle includes international, independent, and art films in its repertoire. One doesn't have to travel to Pasadena, where the nearest theatre, shows these wonderful films....More
