Pros: Comfortable seats.

Cons: Prices went up recently. Wouldn't they get more customers with more movie times? You have to climb to the sky box section to see.

This is our favorite theater. The movie goers here are true movie fans and you don't have to worry about talkers, texters, and drink slurpers. There is a respect for the movie and the other ticket buyers that you don't always get at the theaters showing the Hollywood blockbusters. If you enjoy independent films, you should definitely pay a visit to Century.

One of my favorite locations. Yeah, it's different than other theaters, but big deal. Prices are OK, parking is convenient and validated, good restaurants (lunch, anyway) are near, and it shows the types of movies that I want to see. And

Pros: good selection of independent movies, validated parking, good location

Cons: small theaters, wierd access to theaters that are on different levels than the box office

Yes they show great movies that you can't find anywhere else in the city... but! The theatre is expensive. They only has discounted prices for the 1st show of the day... which is usually @ 11am. I get a bad feeling when I walk in. A tad

Pros: good movie selection

Cons: pricey - even for a movie theatre, bad atmosphere, parking

I've been watching movies at the Century for 4 years, and the movies I've seen there (from the Int'l Film Festivals to straight features) have all been excellent productions. They run foreign, indie, and mainstream. I've never had

Pros: Excellent selection, adequate seating, decent concessions

Cons: Seats need a major upgrade

This theater is a trade-off. On one hand, you get absolutely incredible movies. Sometimes they're even the only theater in Chicago showing a given movie. On the other hand, the prices are creeping up on ten bucks per ticket. On top of that, the student rate doesn't apply on weekends when, if I'm not mistaken most people are likely to be... y'know... seeing a movie.

This is my favorite theatre. It is simply a great place for independent film. They offer a free magazine with all the latest in independant film, if you are a (free) member of their film club you get a free cd, contests for free dvd's and sometimes invites to free screenings. So many great movies go through here, many of them win awards throughout the world. GO see a movie here!

Not being a big fan of Hollywood movies, Landmark's Century theater is probably about the only local movie theater I've been willing to enter in the last 10 years or so. They run a variety of independent and foreign films and the occasional film festival. At concessions they offer cappuccino and Ben & Jerry's and a few other off-beat options in addition to the usual Junior Mints and popcorn. I tried a hot dog once out of desperation and it was bad, but what do you expect?! The seats are very comfortable and the crowd is art house-lite... despite that calm yuppie exterior they WILL lynch you if your cell phone rings during the movie. Not that I disagree!

Pros: Comfortable chairs, Great sound, Ample leg room

Cons: Maybe too comfortable, Have fallen asleep, feels like a bed

You would swear you were in a huge cineplex showing only big, blockbuster movies. Instead, this theater brings to town great films with the comfort usually offered by a mainstream megaplex.

Used to really be annoyed by the weird vertical shopping mall-yness of this place, but now I don't want to go anywhere else. Stadium seating for art films rules. Good, clean, roomy.

Editorial from

The Theater
The seven theaters are small but first-rate, with wall-to-wall screens, stadium seating and high-backed chairs with cupholders. The layout is confusing, to say the least, but the staff will show you around. Dark,…
