Small independent theater that uses real butter on their popcorn which makes my girlfriend happy. I just avoid that stuff since it gives me rotating knives. But it does make the theater smell nice.

I really like this theater especially if you are looking for a movie that is not necessarily mainstream. You can find foreign films, independent films and indie films here.

Best popcorn prices, best audience and best staff. This theatre is very clean and the staff is great. They show the best in indie films and the theatres are comfy. They have several small screens but they too are stadium. The parking is

I come from the Bay Area. Folks there are always asking me, "How can you live in _LA_?" (Like lepers live here or something.)

"Well," I say, "does the Bay Area have a 7-plex indie movie theater?

No?

OK then."

I go to Laemmle's Playhouse 7 when I want to see a movie I can't see at a bigger chain movie theater. I've seen some great indy movies here and have been impressed with the sound and picture quality. Special discounts for students and seniors apply too. Parking can be found on Colorado (if you're lucky) or off one of the side streets. A good place for a date, too.

This is one of the best places i've been to for independent films. There are many movies playing at all times and it's not expensive like the other independent theaters.

This is the place to watch films that aren't usually shown in big chain theatres. They have a great selection of movies with reasonable prices. Just check it out.

If you love independent movies and live in the Los Angeles area, then you have probably visited Laemmle's Playhouse 7 on more than one occasion. A lot of the smaller movies that have a limited release can only be found at this theater. They almost always only have small independent films...you are not going to find a big budget studio film at these theaters. They are small theaters and screens, and the sound is what you would expect from one of these small movie chains. I highly recommend checking out Laemmle's if you are into the independent movie screen.

PROS: has great selection of independent films
CONS: small theaters

Many a good movie has been watched here by me. I like the place and I know that I can always get a Mexican Mocha before I go in, next door at the cafe in Vroman's, but I can't recall the name. I love that I can see movies from countries around the world, including Kazakhistan. I wish it didn't cost so much to see movies but I will pay if I really want to see it.

I love Laemmles for the variety. It's the only theatre you can count on to have those limited-release indies on the east side of LA. I'm not a fan of the small theatres with the awkwardly placed screens, but I guess that's often the best you'll get when trying to find that hard-to-catch film.

I saw "Sideways" here and fell in love with the place. The Playhouse 7 is located in the beautiful Playhouse District of Pasadena next to Vroman's bookstore. You could probably see any of the seven films they are showing at any given time and not be disappointed, as they show the finest Indie Flicks that moviegoers "in the know" talk about.
Laemmle's offers very reasonable ticket prices as well as student discounts with I.D.
The theatre is also close to Paseo Colorado, Old Town, and numerous dining establishments on Lake and Colorado.
If you are looking to avoid the blockbuster or just have an impulse to see something a little eclectic, the Playhouse 7 is for you.

Laemmle's is one of the best spots to find those hard-to-find movies (foreign films, independent releases, art house pics, etc.) It's an older theatre, so it lacks some of the bells and whistles of the new megaplexes. But hey, you don't go to Laemmle's to see Spiderman 2! You go there to see the most recent production of obscure Tibetan socialist filmmakers (or just the smaller, highly regarded films you often can't find at an AMC-type of theater).

The Laemmle theaters are the best places to see smaller foreign and art house films. This particular theater is like a dungeon, once inside you have to go down 2 escalators to get to the seats. It is nice and clean, the seats are comfortable, but it has a claustrophic feeling. Parking is difficult. On the plus side it is in a cute spot with lots of shops and restaurants set around a courtyard. Nighttime the ambience is great.

This is the place to see movies. I love indie movies and this theater has them all.

Grab a coffee at the Vroman's coffee shop before the movie and walk over to the Laemmle. Its nothing fancy and not as clean or new as some of the other theaters in town but clearly plays the best movies.

The parking is a pain, you aren't supposed to park in the Vroman's lot - but i figure if i visit the coffee shop i am okay to park in there. technically, i think there is a lot around the corner or across the street somewhere, although i have never parked in it.

the laemmle plays the best movies in town, so i would definitly add it to your list.
