#1 has DTS
Comments: All smallish but OK; 4 has great seats (don't know if the others do.) Typically where films go after a few weeks at a larger Westwood house; you reportedly see a lot of celebrities here either avoid the crowds or trying to catch a film before its end of run.

Went last night; 3 also has good seats (very tall, with headrests). The was a slight bit of projection on the ceiling and the masking was slightly crooked and there was the occasional sound of an explosion from next door. Picture and sound were otherwise fine, though.

They've been running lots of screenings recently, thus not having regular showings; this whole week, in fact, will have something missing each night. Always check that day's paper or call.

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
