This location is affordable and strands out in a hidden slot down the Hollywood strip. They were playing German movies with English subtitles at $12.00 a ticket witch is simply perfect if you enjoy that type of vibe. The scent of popcorn literally brought me...More

A little old Hollywood horror flick to set the Halloween spirit. The Wolfman starring Lon Chaney on the big screen in a theater from a bygone era...PERFECT! The ceiling alone speaks volumes of the history in this old jewel. No Dolby surround or IMAX here....More

I really loved the theatre as it was covered as a part of the walking tour. This theatre has got some of the really nice artwork.

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
