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.

    Built out of crowd-pleasing elements as durable as a lacquered, sky-high ’80s hairdo, writer-director John Carney’s coming-of-age musical is a synth-drenched joy: a tuneful, deeply personal ode to the impulse that forges a high school rock band. I...

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.
