    A beautiful old theater. Be warned that movies generally start ~40 minutes late due to the spinner game they do before hand.

    Art deco carried to its necessary extreme. Financed by Paramount Pictures, the Paramount Theatre was the largest West Coast movie palace at the time of its construction in 1931.

    The balcony ladies room is tiny. You will miss the second set of a show if you wait in what will be a monster line. Try another floor or book out early.

    Becoming a citizen today? Walk to Flora, sit at the bar, get a burger (sticking your American flag on it optional), a shot of Maker's Mark and a bottle of Liberty Ale. Welcome to America!

    Arrive a bit early so you have time to take in the overwhelming size and beauty of the place (trust me) and check out the restrooms even if you don't have to go!
