I just want to say how much I love going to the Krikorian Theatre in Monrovia, California. I'm always impressed with how clean it always is, how professional and polite the young people who work there are and that seniors are hired to work in the ticket windows. I also like that there is free parking and that the movie prices are reasonable. Thank you George Krikorian. It is my sincere wish that you would consider buying out the old Pasific Hastings Theatre on Rosemead Blvd. in the Hastings Ranch area and making it one of your own. Your theatres are wondereful!

Unlike most theaters that are monopolized by high school students on an opening night, this one is relatively calm. The seating and sound quality, in my opinion, are just as good as any other theater under $10. Even opening nights for blockbusters are doable.

I love a good movie. I especially like a good movie in a good theater. The krikorian in Monrovia is such a place. They have about ten theaters (including an IMAX like LFX theater) with stadium seating and wicked surround sound. Parking is more than adequate as are the prices for tickets. Concession prices are ridiculously high but that goes for most theaters. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and they don't mind if you stand in line waiting for a movie for half a day . . . um, I'm not speaking from experience, of course. Great place!

PROS: Great seating, big screens, wicked sound
CONS: High concession prices, but what do you expect

This theater features a Summer Kid movie program. Every Tuesday at 10am and 12:30pm they show a kid movie for $1 per person. The Kids Popcorn Pack is $4.75.

My wife and I see a lot of movies, and Krikorian Monrovia is by far the best place to go in the Pasadena-Arcadia-Monrovia area. Krikorian is located in quaint Old Town Monrovia, which is a lower key, more family friendly version of Old Town Pasadena. The seats are super comfortable (more so than the seats at the new AMC in the Arcadia Mall and also Pasadenas Paseo theater), the staff is super friendly, and the parking is plentiful and easy to access. Best of all, there are no annoying, radio ad-filled movie tunes and insipid cola-shilling images on the screen before a film. Instead, the Krikorian plays pleasant ad-free radio and projects tasteful local business print ads on the screen. The nearby restaurants are also quite good, especially Frank and Joe's Southern Smokehouse.

PROS: Great location, easy parking, very comfortable seats, tolerable screen ads
CONS: None

This is a relatively new theater, so it's very clean. The seats have really soft fabric, but the cushioning isn't that comfortable. The theaters' all have plenty of leg room and stadium seating, and a nice large screen to accompany it. If you're interested in a matinee, it's only the first showing of the movie. Prices are outrageous, but so are most now a days.

My wife and I really enjoy this theater. Sometimes we'll drive all the way out from Glendale so we can wander around Old Town Monrovia for a while and then check out a movie. It's historic on the outside, it's clean and shiny on the inside, and there are lots of movies playing.

One reason we really loved this place is that until recently they didn't show any commercials before the move (yay!). But the last time we went, they were showing commercials. Oh well, I guess the search continues for the perfect movie theater. But this place is still very nice, and gives your night at the movies a sense of occation.

My Krikorian, yes this is MY theatre and inviting everyone to come by, relax and enjoy the movie of your choice in any of the 12 screening rooms.

I simply enjoy going to the movies, yet I will only go (except for a rare circumstance) to the Krikorian in Monrovia.

Can't beat the location, quaint Old Town Monrovia, you can walk around before or after any show, with street entrance. No mall to have to walk through, just convenient street entrance. While they do not have their own attached parking lot, so many free surrounding parking areas exist.

The inside is spacious yet cozy, clean except for people who left a recent trail of popcorn to their movie, and the staff is always friendly.

The overall environment makes movie going the experience that it should be. The seating is very comfortable and of course the sound and screen is right one.

Try it out! Yes a movie is a movie, yet the venue can create the experience.

I am not actually from California but I was introduced to some of the top spots by my Aunt when I went to visit. I am a huge movie fan and enjoy going to the movies. From the outside I did not think it was going to be a spacious and luxurious movie theater. I was pleasantly suprised! I saw several movies there. I like the location cute little downtown Monrovia. The theater was very well kept which was nice. I especially liked that is was handicapped accessible, pretty easy for a wheelchair to get around. The staff was also nice if you needed anything or any help. A great experience. They also have a good website and gift cards are easy to purchase!

My husband and I choose this movie theatre because it is consistantly clean, runs the newest releases and is located in a nice area, downtown Monrovia. We've never encountered long waits in the ticket line even with bigtime movie releases. After the movie we usually walk around Mrytle Avenue's lane of shops or to the nearby park. Catching a flick at the Krikorian theatre in Monrovia has always been a relaxing experience.
Parking Note: Finding a parking space takes a few extra minutes. There are plenty of spaces in the parking lots surrounding the theatre; however, due to the area's popularity plenty of other people are trying to park too (especially during the Friday night street fair.)

I really love this theatre. Actually, besides the Laemmle independent theatres, I really won't go to any other venue. Prices are steep at theatres everywhere, so that's not really a concern. You pay about eight dollars a ticket for a wonderful seat, great view, and great audio experience. The owner will frequent the theatre on busy nights and talks to crowds at special features, like the premieres of the Lord of the Rings movies. Food is expensive, like everywhere else, but you can easily sneak food and drink in. The staff is nice as well.
