In LA, Laemmle Theaters is one of the most hallowed places to watch the best in independent and foreign films. With eight locations all over the Greater LA region, Laemmle (say "LEM-lee") is a cornerstone for great film, previews, screenings and events. Established in 1938, the company is still family-run by (you guessed it) the Laemmles. Rent out one of their theaters for a special event, and check their website for an ever-changing list of staff favorites, if you're torn on which flick to see. And remember to take advantage of their plentiful discounts, inclduing the free Sneaks Club (sneak peek screenings), Student Sundays and Free Popcorn Thursdays.
