hollywood90038, thanks for the pics! A new marquee went up last Friday (September 17) and looks even better than the temporary one for the Dario Argento double bill.

The Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule blog posted a breakdown of the recent sign upgrades: View link

Quentin Tarantino programs the New Beverly Cinema through the entire month of March.

About a week ago the powerhouse website Groupon sold over 2000 admission/popcorn/soda packages to the Beverly in less than 24 hours!

Even folks who did now buy know about the Beverly. Expect a noticeable uptick in business.

I’ve attended 15 times so far this year. Parking on the side streets in the evening is unrestricted-a godsend. Veteran actor Clu Gulager is a fixture here(he always sits in the first row).

Admission for regualar shows is ultra reasonable at $5-7. When was the last time in a movie house you could buy a small candy bar for $1, small pocorn for $2, even Martinelli’s apple juice for $1.75? The hotdogs at $2.50 are the best I have ever had in a cinema and compare favorably to nearby Pink’s.

Sherman’s son Mike Torgan works all phases of the business and is a real gentleman. I come in from North Hollywood; if I lived in the neighborhood I would be at the Beverly 3-4 times a week.

SO GLAD this gem was saved and still going strong. Went here every week when I was in college from 1995-1999. I remember they even showed old trailers for the upcoming films!

Marcel, they still show the old trailers! Large ads ran in the L A Times at least three days for the 11/11-11/17 run of “Human Zoo”, an excellent movie by Rie Rasmussen who did a Q & A every night. The 11/18 and 11/21 screenings I attended were near capacity. Kudos for Quentin Tarantino for bringing in many directors and actors for appearances. The heavily leaning young crowd bodes well for the ongoing success of the Beverly.

The above photo illustrates one problem with the house…the seats are not staggered. I remember trying to read the subtitles on a foreign film one evening.
