The Music Hall lost its soul when it was split into three TINY rooms. It is not the "last great movie palace" but a crummy triplex.
Offbeat, creative, intelligent movies are more alive than ever. Aero, Egypitan, LACMA, UCLA, Silent Movie Theater, Arclight (now with three branches), Westside Pavilion, Bay Theater Seal Beach, Warner Grand San Pedro, Alex Theater Glendale, New Beverly. There is almost too much to choose from. Granted much of this is old movies, or once a week showings, but not all of it, by any means.
And towering over all of this is the AMAZING program, almost always sold out, at the Academy's theater in Beverly Hills.
Laemelle gets what it deserves. They operate dark, dingy, dirty, outdated theaters, and as they now admit, program crap for pay. Good riddance.
