Theater Type: first run, multiplex (14 screens)
Directions: on Little Santa Monica between Century Park West and Ave of the Stars; garage entrances on CPW, SM, and Constellation. Theater is in the NW corner, near Houston's and Dive!.
Parking Tips: Try entering the right-most ramp from SM Blvd, take the ticket, jog right and left at the bottom of ramp, and take the first real right turn (40 ft.) The escalator bank (painted green) you see on your right five rows ahead goes directly to the theaters. It can get crowded in the garage -- allow time! 4 hours free with validation in theater lobby.

prices checked 12/25/99
Theaters: 14 - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 are THX, 70; 1 and 2 have SRD; all have SDDS(?) and they have at least three DTS systems.
Comments: Screens 1-5 are reasonable, with 4 probably the largest at ~425. (Couldn't get numbers from the guy answering the phone.) This is Sold-out City -- be warned that many shows sell out two or more hours in advance. I don't consider any of the screens 6 to 14 to be worthwhile if a film is elsewhere; the four or five I've seen seem very boxy as well as small.

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
