One our first day on holiday in LA we went to walk of fame and I was instantly struck by this cinema. On our return from a trip in the afternoon we headed for here and saw that we could catch a movie - Incredibles 3
As you aren’t allowed to take food in and the only food you can by inside is popcorn and we were hungry we quickly bobbed somewhere else to eat and hurriedly rushes back for the show. As we walked in a man was playing on an organ and then at the end he went down into the stage
Then they played the trailers and before the movie started - the stars of the incredibles came on stage including frozen and did a sons and dance and came into the stalls to high five the kids
It was truly fantastic and am so pleased we managed to get to see a film here
Definitely recommend you do the same

To say that this cinema is a bit different to others would be like saying Mickey D's was a proper burger joint.

The decor is is certainley impressive and the movie we went to see - Incredibles 2- was excellent.

Bit disaponted in the pre -show.
I was expecting the organ to rise up and inspire us with some organy - music. Instead we got a few "dancers" in Incredibles costumes jumping around the stage, and er, that was it.

Still, the movie was good :)

Elegant and magical - one doesn't need 3D or any other nonsense to show a movie - from the re known organ player to the ushers - this theater shines as the benchmark for all others - hoping to go back again very soon
