Has always been great, now it's even better!

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!

Old school movie house with great films

This was my film school. The seats have seen better days but that's part of the charm. Be sure to check their calendar for special events and programmes. This is for real film fans. The ticket prices are great as there are many double features. Some people might get freaked out by the old school anologue aesthetic but I love it.

The first reason I fell in love with LA

On one of my first weekend in LA, I came to the New Beverly and saw ""Mullholland Dr."" The movie and the New Beverly reminded me of the quirky, funky, and above all interesting side of Los Angeles that gets left out of most views on the city. The theater is pretty ragged on the inside, but the popcorn is cheap, the movie selection is always intriguing, and the company is, like LA, quirky, funky, and interesting.
Not everything in this city has to be polished to a shine. The experience wouldn't be the same if the theater was new, the sound was digital quality, and the clientelle wore Prada...

I dunno...is it worth it?

This theater always has a very exciting arrangment of films. I saw ""Goodfellas"" and ""Some Like it Hot"" here just to name a few. Even so, this theater is not a fun place to visit. It's often very dirty. The walls, which some people said have ""character"", to me only look like they need a scrub down. The clientelle consists of creepy old men and bag ladies. The video and audio are absolutely terrible. Video can be fuzzy and audio can go in and out. Not to mention on more then one occasion there was a loud buzzing sound behind the audio. I know the owner tries his best, and I'm in full suppport. I'd recommend at least trying this place out...before it's gone.

Superb

Six dollars for two great films and thats not just the matinee price. This theater is absolutely fantastic. I was pleased enough to find a theater that would play everything from Old Hollywood classics and fifties European cinema to contemporary independent films but to find such a theater that also plays these films on double bills (grouping films variously by auteur, theme, genre) and for a mere six dollars for both films I am in heaven. I love this theater. If you love film, you will too. Look at their website to get a sample of the large variety of films they show. The chairs are a little uncomfortable and the theater building itself is certainly past its prime but the wear gives the place character. Every theater should have such variety and cost so little. Every business should be run with such care and love for its product.

Great Venue

This is a great venue for seeing older, foreign and cult films. Every show is a themed double feature, priced very cheaply. The print quality varies from fairly pristine to highly degraded depending upon the movie's age and current circulation, and it's certainly not the city's fanciest projection system. But that's not the point. This is a theatre with personality and it's all about getting to see movies you might otherwise not, on film, surrounded by other lovers of film.

Great theater for old films

It's better to watch old films with others than at home, and this place supports the habit. A very interesting crowd keeps the theater relatively busy. Nice choice of avant-garde, foreign, and mainstream films.
Very cheap!
