Was a brand spanking new Laemmle theater with seven screens. Santa delivered! Wednesday night the NoHo 7 theater, newest addition to LA’s awesome “we’re not afraid of subtitles” Laemmle chain.
Wednesday just so happened to be the last night of a friend-of-a-friend’s visit to LA, and so when we tried to narrow our options for how to best entertain him, breaking in our new neighborhood theater seemed like a clear front-runner.
The theater was quite nice, and it still has the new construction smell. The film selection, for anyone who is not familiar with the Laemmle chain, is probably precisely what you would imagine from a theater chain that prides itself on not being “afraid of subtitles.” The overall feel of the place, for those who are familiar with the Laemmle, is not quite what we’ve grown accustomed to at the Encino and Fallbrook locations, but can best be described in comparison to those other locations as simply “clean.” But don’t fret; thanks to the staff, the place seems to retain some sense of character in spite its cleanliness.
So next time you’re in the East Valley and looking for a
reason not to kill yourself movie to entertain yourself, check out Laemmle’s NoHo 7. I think you won’t regret it.
