AMC Dine-In Sunset 5

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in the north of West Hollywood. This theatre is one of L.A.’s most popular independent film theatres. It opened on August 19, 1992 with a seating capacity for 1,118, and was closed by Laemmle on November 29, 2011 when it had a seating capacity for 836.

It was taken over by Sundance Cinemas who refurbished the building and reopened on August 31, 2012, now with a reduced seating capacity of 606. In April 2017 it was renamed AMC Dine-In Sunset 5.

I visited the Sunset 5 in July 2014 to see “Snowpiercer”, an apocalyptic fable based on a comic book, which I imagine is a typical ‘Sundance’ limited release offering. I’m pleased to say the 5pm show attracted a reasonable crowd. The cinema is in superb shape, with friendly staff and a really welcoming atmosphere. I have added a number of photos, including two of the upstairs lounge, no doubt a very nice area to relax in as part of a visit.

I wish Laemmle would takeover this theatre again…

AMC is re-branding it as the AMC Dine-In Sunset 5.

With AMC replacing Sundance:

  1. Is it still age 21+ to see a movie? This was Sundance’s most asinine policy, I assume it was in order to promote their booze sales. (Tho considering their booze prices I’m sure they made more profits selling the overpriced liquor than whatever movie ticket sales they gave up.)

  2. And is bargain Tuesdays gone? IMHO that was one of the only good things about the Sundance Sunset 5. (That, & also filmmakers & actors often appearing opening weekends to promote their new films).

1 Depends on the showtime for that policy at AMC. it looks like currently this location has it for all films. 2. AMC ,is keeping for this year the tuesday discounts but requires you have a Stubs card to get them.

This location is listed as a express dine-in location on AMC’s site.

The Sunset 5 signage and marquee has been replaced by the big AMC logo.
