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.

    Too much ambition can be a dangerous thing. The previous Star Trek movie, 2013’s sprawling Into Darkness, was packed with it: new worlds, violent consequences and hefty emotional moments. A little unfairly, it was voted the worst Trek movie ever b...

    Sometimes movies feel like fever dreams, fueled by sexy bodies in motion, a pounding electro soundtrack or cinematography that swirls in a revel. This one’s fueled by farts. A preschool-puerile survival movie about a desert-island-stranded beardo ...

    Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass prompted widespread surprise with their decision to return to the Bourne series, despite the neat closure of their trilogy capper, 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum. Surely, we assumed, they must have a great reas...

    Aa a morose almost-comedy that flirts with romantic themes and then abandons them, Woody Allen’s latest period piece gives us a young Jewish man, Bobby (Jesse Eisenberg, fairly endearing as the Allen stand-in), who’s been burned by love. He escape...

Tickets here are kind of expensive (but what movie theatre isn't these days?). But what I like here is that it's small and focused on their community. Before the movie I was seeing started, the manager of the theater came to announce that the movie was about to begin and thanked us for coming out. It was a great personal touch. They also recently added a beautiful bar, and you can grab a glass of wine or beer before you head into your show!

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.
