Right in the heart of Uptown Whittier on Greenleaf Ave, the movie theater gives great value when Compared to larger chain theaters. $6 for a matinee screening of a new movie release. Popcorn priced moderately along with Drinks, but coupons are available online to help offset the cost. Screen size for larger auditoriums are fine but seem a little close.... More

This a a fun place to see a movie. Less expensive than any mainstream theater, including popcorn, and it is larger, too. Seats are decent and theaters are clean. Lots of locals come to see movies there. I like to support local endeavors. Families, couples and teens see movies there.

Tuesday's $5 entrance on all movies great deal and decent atmosphere my kids love going there. It is surrounded by cool shops to browse meanwhile you wait for movies to start. The only downfall is that on $5 nights there are long lines and you have to get there early, especially when there are new releases.

Some of the screening rooms have bigger screens than others. Good quality sound comfortable seating, excellent popcorn, clean and well managed. Nearby eateries and shops on a pleasant street to take a stroll. Adequate parking. Not an art-house theatre--good selection of movies in current release.

This is a good movie place when on a budget. It's small inside but theatre is good quality. Lines can get long so best to arrive early. Take hand sanitizer. Staff are friendly.
