This might not be the most state-of-the-art theater, but what it lacks in comfort (and multiple screens), it makes up for in panache. Cool retro interior and the guy taking your tickets typically dresses in costume to match the theme of the movie, which is what I call going the extra mile. A special neighborhood spot.

BEST movie theater in L.A.

This is what going to the movies used to be like. LOTS of legroom, and a theater designed to look like King Tut's tomb - cool! But you get the best of the modern world with a superior sound system and newer 'lounge' chairs with cup holders. Honestly, I want to see every movie here.

Refurbished classic movie house

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.
