Most people staying at the Holiday Inn Burbank-Media Center do not generally have going to the movies on their vacation to-do list. There are just too many things to do and see in this exciting city to be stuck inside a theater, right? Well, that may be true of most venues, but Laemmle Theatres are different. As soon as you see the vintage reader boards outside that someone manually changed with plastic letters, you know you are in for a treat. Plus, there are seven theaters to choose from, so you can easily squeeze in a flick near another attraction you already plan on visiting.
Laemmle Theatres are family-run art-house cinemas that primarily showcase foreign and independent films. The first one was opened in 1938. Robert Laemmle and his son, Greg, run them today. In addition to standard movies, the theaters also host unique experiences, such as one-night screenings, premiers, special events, and academy qualifications. In fact, critics refer to the venues as being a secret path to qualifying for the Oscars.Details
