LAEMMLE fans: Would you like to see a new Laemmle theater in Azusa?!

Our proposal to build a movie theater in Downtown Azusa has been selected as a finalist by the Azusa City Council! In November, the City of Azusa requested proposals for a mixed use development opportunity on the southeast corner of East Foothill Boulevard and North Azusa Avenue in Downtown Azusa (referred to as “Block 36”). Our project was selected as one of two finalists in this process! Our proposal includes a five screen movie theater (with programming similar to our Pasadena venue), 108 residential units, retail/restaurant space, and an outdoor plaza. It is estimated that our theater will draw approximately 75,000 people per year t [...]

DOUGH director John Goldschmidt: "The best way to challenge prejudice is through comedy." Plus a video message to audiences from Pauline Collins, the Oscar-nominated female lead of DOUGH.

In the comedy DOUGH, which we'll open April 29 at our West L.A., Pasadena and Encino theaters and May 6 in Claremont, curmudgeonly widower Nat Dayan (Jonathan Pryce) obstinately clings to his way of life and his livelihood as a Kosher bakery shop owner in London’s East End. With a dwindling clientele and the pressures of encroaching big box stores, Nat reluctantly enlists the help of teenager Ayyash, who has a secret side gig selling marijuana to help his struggling immigrant mother make ends meet. When Ayyash accidentally drops his stash into the mixing dough, the challah starts flying off the shelves and an unlikely friendship forms between [...]

AFERIM! Return Engagement at the Fine Arts Starts Friday with Special Screenings at the NoHo, Playhouse, Monica Film Center and Claremont 5 April 11-14

Eastern Europe, 1835. Two riders cross a barren landscape in the middle of Wallachia. They are the gendarme Costandin and his son. Together they are searching for a gypsy slave who has run away from his nobleman master and is suspected of having an affair with the noble's wife. While the unflappable Costandin comments on every situation with a cheery aphorism, his son takes a more contemplative view of the world. Radu Jude’s brilliant third feature AFERIM! has been aptly compared to films as diverse as THE SEARCHERS, THE LAST DETAIL and PULP FICTION (the latter for its rambling, coarse and endlessly entertaining dialogue), but the film is [...]

Culture Vulture Q2 2016: Opera, Dance, Theater and More, now also in Santa Monica!

Prepare for a wealth of high art this April, May and June because we'll be projecting some excellent stuff on screens at our Claremont, Beverly Hills, Encino, Pasadena and now Santa Monica locations as part of our ongoing Culture Vulture series. We begin April with a new production The Damnation of Faust, Berlioz's légende dramatique. Director Alvis Hermanis grapples with the complexity of bringing Faust to modern audiences, asking us to identify the Faust of our times. Seeing a modern equivalent to Faust's intellectual rigor in the fascinating mind of Stephen Hawking, Hermanis sets Berlioz's work on the futuristic eve of mankind's first s [...]

Francophiles and French expats, in the coming weeks we will have a wealth of French movies on our screens for you. Valérie Donzelli's Marguerite & Julien opens at the Royal on March 4 and the Playhouse and Town Center on March 11.
