When you're not in the mood for the big crowd at the Arclight or AMC, this boutique theater is a great pick. You can pick your seats when you purchase a ticket and they usually just show buzzy indie and oscar-nominated movies. They've got craft beer and wine for purchase, as well as some expensive small pizzas and other dishes. Nothing here will blow you away, but the cozy feel and smaller theater vibe is a welcome change from the big chains. Pro Tip: Come on a Tuesday and you can get your ticket for half price.

There is no shortage of swanky movie theaters in LA and Sunset 5 does not disappoint.  They have great food options and a large wine and beer list for a movie theater.  The seats are extra big and offer plenty of space between you and your neighbor.
