Landmark Century Cinema

Though it's located on top of a seemingly abandoned mall, the Landmark's lineup of studio-backed indie films and obscure midnight screenings is worth the trip. The theater's bar and snack options can be just as quirky as the movie you're seeing, making it the perfect destination for the cinephile in training.

    It couldn’t have been easy for the Coens to just be silly again, especially after such recent soulful triumphs like Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) and A Serious Man (2009). God love ’em for insisting on it: Hail, Caesar! weds the backstage Hollywood s...

    After the playful, urban and contemporary vibe of Birdman, this bleak 1820s-set Western sees Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu return to the darker worldview of his earlier films like Babel and 21 Grams. Based on a 2002 Michael Punke n...

Though it's not as fancy as some of its newer competitors, the oddly laid-out Landmark has its charms, and the theater has made some upgrades in recent years to bring it up to modern standards, including reclining seats and the addition of an inviting lobby bar (you can bring your drinks into the movie). The programming is mostly indie fare you're not likely to find at the other multiplexes, but there's the occasional big-budget offering—I saw the new Star Wars there.
