The AMC Century was remodeled a few years ago (along with the rest of the Century City Shopping Center). It is one of the better multiplexes in Los Angeles for me (due to prices, proximity, and movie times), though it does seem to be slipping of late (in terms of projection quality). The good: --Usually a good sampling of mainstream and independent films (plus in the fall, this theater often gets the movies playing only in NY and LA). --Large variety of times (including early times), so you can see a movie early and get on with your day. --Stadium seating throughout; no tiny screens like the old AMC Century. --Like other AMCs, $6 a ticket for shows before noon. --Free parking for the first 3 hours. --Popcorn (when fresh) is good. The bad: --The automatic kiosks don't record your movie watcher points, which forces you to go to the counter (ugh). --Can be quite difficult getting a ticket/seat during peak times (this place is often super busy). --There have been some projection problems recently; usually, it gets fixed before the previews end; but one movie I went to recently was pretty much out of focus the whole time. --The IMAX screen isn't a real IMAX screen (it isn't a big screen like the one at The Bridge). Best moviegoing experience at this theater (pre-renovation): Black Hawk Down (2001). Pre-renovation celebrity sightings: Nick Stahl, Halle Berry. Best moviegoing experience at this theater (post-renovation): Children Of Men (2006). Post-renovation celebrity sighting: Judd Apatow.

World Aids Day was a Smash Hit! Back on Wednesday, November 30, 2016, I participated in a March from Hollywood Boulevard and Schrader up to the Dolby Theatre for the World Aids Day which was also known as "Keep The Promise" which was being sponsored by the AHF (Aids Healthcare Foundation). Once we got to the beautiful Dolby Theatre in which I have Never set foot in before, we then headed inside for a Fantastic Lecture and Concert featuring Patti Labelle, Rosie Perez, JoJo, Espinoza Paz, Jencarlos Canela, B-Flow and Harry Belafonte. I had such a good time overall and so did everybody else in which I will Never Forget! Here is a copy of a video that I just made during the Patti Labelle Concert at the Dolby Theatre for my Youtube Channel for your reference and further review. Thank You. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3y2qfDkEq38 I personally want to thank everybody involved including the AHF and the Dolby Theatre for putting on such a Fantastic March and Evening Performance. Sincerely yours, Howard Paul Shore Participant, Executive Social Media Writer and Reviewer /HPS
I'd never been to a show here or at the Nokia Theater, and was actually a bit confused as to where it was located. It was only after mistakenly going to the larger Theater Box Office that I learned that the show I was attending (Brazilian artist Djavan) was being held at the upstairs club. We were greeted by the Box Office/Will Call staff and were able to pick up our tickets just after 6PM, giving us time to enjoy dinner before the show. Once entering the club, we were immediately reminded of a more contemporary looking "House of Blues" - quite a similar setting, but for the few rows of seats on the ground level. The decor is sparse - some may call it minimalist - but it made the atmosphere seem a bit "cold." Still, once the artist took the stage, things "warmed up" immediately, and we thoroughly enjoyed the show. I'll definitely come back here to catch my favorite artists as they appear here.
The Vista was once of the one great theaters in north-central L.A. It's one of those old movie houses with carved figures on the walls and art deco engravings on the ceilings, etc. About 10 years ago, the Vista was refurbished and it is an amazing place to see a movie. A big screen and new seats are a big plus. The high ceilings with new paint and polished sculptures give the place a classic style that you just don't see in movie theaters anymore. Also, there is plenty of room to stretch out. I am just over 6' tall, so I'm usually cramped in movie theaters. In this theater, you can literally stretch out completely. It's unreal how much leg space you have. There is no other theater like this, and watching movies can be a relaxing, comfortable experience without added expense like you get with the Arclight and other "specialty" theaters like that. Stereo sound, etc. too.
you get what you pay for, I mean you don't expect an AMC kind of place for payin $6 fee..it's a steal really. were there to watch a movie for an hour or two not sleep on the floor and a have a picnic. the dirtyness of the seats kinda bothered me tho, expect to get bed bugs out of them. it's the perfect place to watch movies if ur in a big budget. I wouldn't come here all the time tho, the neighborhood seems sketchy and ghetto at night. so keep a look out if ur plannin of watchin movies at night. me and friends made a little joke cause there's this one dude inside that seems to incharge of everything, sells popcorn,tickets, open the front door, turn on the projector..hes either the owner or the only guy workin there lol. overall I give it a 3 out of 5.
I've only been to the theater what and it was such a spectacular show it's only a once-in-a-lifetime experience I'll never forget it and I have not seen a show like that since and the theater was just in such great condition and fit with all the shows that were performed the atmosphere was awesome this was in 1987 we want this show to see the gypsies from Spain Flamingo Pluto I enjoyed it so much my Palms are hurting the next day it was so many standing ovations it happened all through the night I got a hoarse throat I wise whistling and yelling and last but not least I think the wine help the situation I hope that someone can enjoy that night the way I did and I hope to see you tonight for all...............
This is the story of one good-sized screen and a couple of, well, smaller screens. (It is conceiveable that some persons may indeed have a larger viewing screen at home I suppose.) As other reviewers have noted, it's quite acceptable to see smaller films here in the mini-cinemas, but a poor choice for more grand scale films (unless shown in the Main auditorium.) I much prefer their sister theater, the fabulous Vista, but I will continue to patronize the Los Feliz Theater as well if there's something I wish to see. The matinee's a good deal, you can eat right in the area,(Palermos!! (: and even visit Skylight Books after the movie. It all adds up to a nice experience, and I'm glad this theater is there.
I've always loved this theater. It's the perfect place to see classic movies that deserve more than a screening in my living room, where i know i'm going to fall asleep. When I used to live down the street I'd always make a point of walking down to catch great films like Citizen Kane, Lolita and On the Waterfront and I never really minded that the seats were a little beat down because the prices were cheap and the popcorn was good... But now the place is even better, Quentin Tarantino bought it, put in new seats, shows great grindhouse films as well as old classics while keeping the prices and the popcorn the same!
Their free Shakespeare performances at the old Griffith Park zoo are synonymous with summer. The stage is set up in the middle of a gently sloping lawn, which means that pretty much any seat is a good seat. Go about an hour early, pack a picnic, spread out a blanket, pop some wine and relax with friends. The founder (this British guy who is always one of the main characters) is a phenomenal talent and always keeps the audience roaring with laughter. They have tons of performance dates throughout the summer and put on at least two different plays per season. (The rest of the year, they stage productions in Atwater.)
