Epic Manager Victor Martinez at Vista Theatre
Silver Lake

The historic gem, single-screen Vista Theater plays movies on actual film reels (no digital here) and boasts giant Art Deco light fixtures, kitschy Egyptian-themed wall details and a lovely manager, Victor Martinez, who dresses up for every opening (think: Willy Wonka for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the Joker for The Dark Knight, etc.). The theater is by no means luxury (although the leg room is pretty spectacular), but it's got character and is within walking distance of Silver Lake, Los Feliz and east Hollywood, making it an extra appealing option for Eastsiders.
