Best Movie Theater for a $5 Matinee Los Angeles 2013 

Highland Theatre

Far removed from the glitzy, historic theaters along Hollywood Boulevard, the Highland Theatre is a year older than the El Capitan, but tickets to a big-budget movie on one of its three screens will cost you half as much as just about anywhere else in town. Opened in 1925 with an orchestra pit and a stage for vaudeville acts, the movie house named for its neighborhood, Highland Park, had a brief stint as a seedy porn theater in the 1970s before being named a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in the '90s and cleaning up its act to become the family-friendly bargain theater that it is today. Don't expect to catch any art-house films at this triplex, and its theaters are rarely in pristine condition, but it's hard to complain about seeing a first-run feature film on any day of the week for $5 before 6 p.m. or $7 after. 5604 N. Figueroa St., Highland Park, 90043. (323) 256-6383, highlandtheatres.com. —Jennifer Swann
