Thursday Theatre Review: AMC Century City 15

Weekly to a returning weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Thursday Theatre Review. I had the chance to spend a few months in Los Angeles, and though I’m now back in New York City, it’s worth recognizing the good and bad theatres I attended while in L.A. There’s no perfect theatre, but there are a few things that can make or break a movie-going experience. In no particular order, this is a guide to movie theatres in L.A.

AMC Century City 15

Location: On Santa Monica Boulevard, it’s part of the Century City mall. Right outside you’ll find plenty of shops and a luxurious food court. Parking is free for the first three hours, $4 for up to 5 hours, and $1 each additional 15 minutes.

Pricing: Since it’s part of the AMC chain, prices are standard. Regular shows are $13.75, and any films before noon are $7.

Film selection: It’s a strong set, and they often have big films in limited release early, like “Zero Dark Thirty.” I spent a good deal of time at this theater, seeing “Argo” and “Flight” as a double feature and “Anna Karenina,” “Skyfall,” and “The Hobbit” as a triple-feature.

Seating: Like most other L.A. theatres, seating is assigned when you purchase your ticket. All of the auditoriums are stadium seating, which is definitely a plus. It’s a big place.

Bonus features: The lobby, which is quite large, usually features a display of costumes or artwork from a current or upcoming film.

Worth the trip? Yes. This theatre is surrounded by so much that you really can make a day of it as long as, it being L.A., you factor in your parking costs. In the middle of my triple feature, a quick visit to the outdoor food court was a real treat.

For the most part the bytes are controlled so as to upgrade the impact of the photo, for instance 3D impact is picked up by controlling the bytes or strings by PC programs. tgv showtime
