July 2008 – finally, updates! The theater list should be accurate now, but I have not yet done the phone numbers, new web links, etc. I also bet the ticket prices have gone up in nine years. If you have any details, feel free to leave them in the comments!

6830 Hollywood Bl, Hollywood
Recording: 213-467-7674 / Voice: 213-467-9545

Theater Type: first run, single screen
Directions: west of Highland
Parking Tips:
Ticket Prices:
Theaters: 1 – 1040 seats, SR-D THX 70mm (probably DTS as well)
(about 550 of those seats are in the orchestra, the rest in the balcony)
Comments: This beautiful 1927 theater is an all-Disney house – I believe they paid for the beautiful restoration. For now, I’ll let the picture be the review.The theater is currently hosting “Hercules” with a live show and whatnot; tickets are expensive and many of the good seats are reserved seats (for more money still). Call ahead and check.

A rarity these days – El Cap is open, still with “Hercules”, but without the live show, so the prices don’t stink too badly. If you’ve never seen this place, do so now.

I can remember a time when where we went to the movies was just as important as the movies we went to see .... From the moment moviegoers arrived to buy their tickets, there was a sense of something special, a feeling that to step inside was to enter another time and place. - Gene Kelly
