Arclight is actually closer to my house but they don’t screen Disney or Pixar films. Thus, the Landmark is my go-to place for all things Disney and Pixar. Great theater with big, comfy seats and friendly staff. I love grabbing a cocktail from the bar in the lobby before heading in to see a movie.

The Landmark is THE place to see a movie. Unlike the Arclight, the West Side Pavilion provides tons of free parking spots (say hello to that extra $2 that just landed in your pocket). Also, they have ""love seats"". Yes, small leather couches for you and your lover or best friend to cuddle up on to enjoy the latest romantic comedy, or if you're like me, slasher film. By yourself? Don't worry. They have plush leather seats for you, too! To top it all off, the Apple Pan is across the street. Enough said!

This Landmark elevates movie-going to a whole new level, and I?m not just talking about the gourmet candies and pizza being offered among the items at the snack counter. You have to get to your movie early if you want to get a good spot to watch the movie from as seats in the theaters are assigned. One big plus about Landmark though is that parking is free in the mall lot. If your looking to see any of the latest indie or foreign film releases, this is definitely a theater you should check out. The seats are comfy, the sound systems are good and it?s definitely worth the trip just for those dark chocolate-covered raisins at the snack stand. Tickets are expensive ($12 on a weekday night), but they are at any movie theater these days.

Even though the ticket prices are kinda steep, I figure the experience of this theatre is worth an extra buck or two, especially considering the fact that parking is free. Offering a good selection of mainstream and arthouse features, the Landmark makes for a really unique movie experience. Get there early--twice I've arrived only to find that the smaller-than-usual theatres had sold out. Plus, while you wait you can peruse through the Barnes and Noble that is virtually in the lobby or have a drink at the in-theatre bar, and since seats are reserved you don't have to worry about going in early and fighting for a place to sit. Some showings are 21+ and you can bring alcohol in, while others are shown in the ""living room"" where movie-goers sit on couches, something I regrettably have yet to experience. But the regular chairs are comfy enough, and all the screens offer something above and beyond the typical movie house options. Even the concessions are beyond deluxe--Peet's coffe, gourmet candy, and pizzas at the bar are a few of the options. Bring a sweater, too, it can get a little chilly in there.

Boy, were we surprised to see a movie and sit on a living room couch. People even brought blankets! I recommend you use the kiosk and order your tickets there. Remember you will need to also pick your seats as it is ""assigned seating"". Arrive a few minutes before the movie and have a drink at the bar! Barnes and Noble is next door as well as the Westside Pavillion. Lots to do and see!

I was very excited to try out the new Landmark and maybe my expectations were too high because of all the reviews. So I'm writing this as a favor to you folks out there going for the first time so you can have low expectations and be pleasantly surprised instead of disappointed. First the good stuff: Free parking, which means there's no line to get in and out of the garage so you probably save 15 minutes of your life each time you see a movie there instead of the Grove or the Arclight, my two favorite movie haunts. Reserved seating, so you can enjoy a glass of wine or beer knowing you've already got a good seat. Not just popcorn and nachos if you go at mealtimes and prefer to eat in the movie. Barnes & Noble next door.
And that's about all I liked. We saw ""You K*ll Me"" which was on screen 3, a little shoebox of a theatre on a long narrow screen. I kept thinking the rest of the screen would drop down when the movie began, but no, that was it. The theater's pitch was incredibly steep with the lower level seats really far below, and I don't know what the point of that was. It only made the stairs too steep. The annoying blue exit lights are bright. If you sit at the edge of any row, the blue safety lights are are all you can see in your peripheral vision. Very distracting. There's leg room but not enough elbow room. The leather seats are packed snugly in. They do recline and are about equal in comfort to the Grove, but not as spacious or comfortable as the Arclight.
The decor also left me unimpressed. There's something distinctly late 80s/early 90s about the neon tube lights in screen number 3.
I was really hoping I'd love the Landmark because the ticket prices are cheaper than Arclight/Grove on weekends, parking is free, and it's about 5-10 minutes closer to my house. While I might go back again if there's a movie I can't see anywhere else, it will definitely not become my cinema of choice.
