Best Bargain Cinemas Los Angeles 2011 

Culver Plaza Theatres

It may look a little down-at-heels, but the Culver Plaza Theatres is a great place to maintain your reputation as a movie guru without breaking the bank. First-run hits show up fast enough that it's still cool to talk about them. Plus the five-plex screens some indies, foreign-language films and documentaries, as well as a steady stream of Bollywood hits. And it has air conditioning! It's not state-of-the-art, but the projection and sound are decent. What more can you expect for $7 ($6 matinees)? And it's located in the heart of Culver City's burgeoning downtown entertainment district, so you can use the money you save on a movie to check out the latest hot restaurant. Instant reputation boost. 9919 Washington Blvd., Culver City. (310) 836-5516, culverplazatheatres.com.

  • Partying at Comic-Con 2014
    Whoever said nerds can't party has obviously never experienced Comic-Con after dark. The industry parties might have free booze, but most of those execs are back in bed by 10 p.m. If you ask the fans they'll tell you that sometimes the best party is the one happening in the hotel lobby with their friends. We set out to get our geeky grove on and capture all the action in the Gaslamp Quarter. All photos by Shannon Cottrell.
