Hollywood

A Hollywood favorite since 2002, the ArcLight offers comfortable assigned seating (cushy, reclining, leg room for days), state-of-the-art sight and sound, fantastic snack bars and, for some Dionysian indulgence, an in-house café-bar. The programming is an astute mix of first-run flicks, indies, foreign fare and premieres; and alcohol is allowed in some screenings. As an added bonus, there are always fun cinephile treats on display (original costumes, architectural models, etc.). It's the most appealing modern multiplex in LA, but is also a classic due to the Cinerama Dome, a fabulous and unique domed movie theater that opened in 1963. Note that parking is usually pretty rough: there's a garage that validates, but it gets pretty packed, so allow plenty of time to find a space and don't expect to escape quickly.

    Like the black monolith in 2001, late novelist David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest casts a long shadow over the chatty, sharply observed The End of the Tour. The door-stopping 1996 book inspires several running gags: It's more than a thousand pag...

    Noah Baumbach’s films are consumed with the terror of becoming, his characters often clinging to the protective embrace of college like a life preserver in shark-infested waters. In the brilliant Mistress America, which begins on the first day of ...

    The flagrantly unbowed N.W.A., pioneers of “reality rap” (we now call it gangsta), very much deserves its own movie—that’s not a premise to argue with. But is F. Gary Gray’s often sentimental, occasionally dull Straight Outta Compton the best vers...

    Guy Ritchie’s reboot of the chatty 1960s spy TV series that no one under 50 remembers has a sunny, tongue-in-cheek vibe—this isn't the Cold War so much as a warm one. Its European setting is less about paying homage to its vague influences (Ian Fl...

    In the unofficial book of Hollywood double standards, only teenage boys are allowed to fumble heroically into the wilds of sex. Most girls are either virginally waiting for Mr. Right or “slutty” supporting characters. So yay for indie drama The Di...

    Amy Schumer is a comedy superwoman: Her stand-up is funny as hell, she’s a viral sensation, and lately she’s become every feminist’s girl crush. Now she’s the best thing to happen to Hollywood since the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler double act. Schumer’s n...

    This enormously fun late-summer surprise, which borrows both its title and its pulsating beat from a 2006 dance hit by the electronic duo Justice, is every bit as ridiculous as you might expect (and hope for) from a romantic drama starring Zac Efr...
