I attended the Michael Jackson movie in 2009 and caught four L A film fest movies in June. The complex does create a sense of the scale of an old movie palace. There was very good buzz at the film festival. Manhattanites eat your hearts out: I park for free at the North Hollywood subway station and metro down to 7th & Figueroa and have a brisk walk from there.

It’s hard for me to understand why the downtown Laemmle could not stay open. There are as many or more residents living closer to the Laeemle and hotels like the Bonaventure are nearby. I did attend a few movies in 2009 and patronage was very small; I’m amazed-I used to live out of a suitcase and would occasionally find a local movie complex to break the routine. Laemmle should have had advertising in the nearby hotels.

I caught the 7PM Saturday show of Harry Potter at the Premiere theater with about 350 seats filled out of 800. The seats are the most comfortable I have sat in along with the Paramount Studios theater.

Although I live in N Hollywood I love LA Live. I have attended six movies at the Regal, a jazz concert at the Grammy Museum, a dance competition in the grand ballroom of the Marriott and the circus at Staples Center. Add in the convention center, all the restaurants and clubs, the Ritz Carlton, the Regal has a lot to draw from.

Saw “The Avengers” during opening weekend in the Premiere Cinema – which has added Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound to its capabilities. Pretty decent!

The Premier Cinema is quite impressive. Love the balcony. A+

The L.A. Live complex as a whole, including the exterior of the Regal Cinemas, was designed by Gensler & Associates, but the theater interior is the work of Blair Ballard Architects.

Why isn’t there a single photo in the photo section? Somebody please photo the exterior & post it. Don’t steal a photo from the Net, do your own. And, if possible, the Premiere cinema with its balcony.

I don’t see why not. :P

Very amusing. I looked over there & yes indeed, your sharing your 2009 photos, Chris, would be most welcome here.
