Movie Theaters In Los Angeles
Most visitors do not spend a lot of time watching movies in LA, even though current releases and countless classics are always being shown. The movie palaces themselves, however, draw huge crowds, with Mann’s Chinese and El Capitain theatres being the best known.
Multiplexes, such as The Grove, ArcLight Cinemas, and Loews Universal CityWalk Cinemas offer state-of-the-art entertainment. Built as a silent film palace in 1922, The Egyptian Theatre is old Hollywood at its best, run by American Cinematheque, it now shows a mix of cult and international films. For a nostalgia trip, visit Silent Movie Theater, which shows classics from the 1920s.
Screenings here are frequently accompanied by charming musical performances.
The simplest source of tickets to concerts, plays, and sports events in LA is Ticketmaster. You can order the tickets by telephone using a credit card, or visit one of their centers in Music Plus or Tower Records stores, or Robinsons-May department stores.
If you want to avoid their service charges, try calling the venues direct. Other agencies include Tickets LA, Telecharge, and Good Time Tickets.
Theater productions and times are available by calling Theater LA’s information line.
