    LA: One of the best venues for National Theatre Live screenings. The parking lot next door is more expensive than a couple others farther south on Main. But only by $1 or so.

    Cool venue. They run lots of indie and obscure films as well as numerous forum events like DIY Days. Rooftop bar. The neighborhood is a bit out of the way and doesn't look real cool but really it is. Read more
