I much prefer the nearby UA to the Shattuck. The theater is OK but they (Landmark) have the worst ticket stubs in the world. They’re just faded receipts similar to store receipts. C'mon Landmark, spend a few bucks for real ticket stubs. I try to avoid Landmark theaters for that reason.

I visited this theater the other day and was quite impressed. I was in Cinema 1, which I thought might have been an old single-screen theatre until I read otherwise on this site. Then I saw another movie, in Cinema 6. It was so nice to see the gold curtains with red footlights, rare for a multiplex today.

I love this theater. Even the smaller theaters (normally show artsy pictures) have curtains and stars on the ceiling. The large Egyptian theater is incredible, and the lobby architecture is very very nice. It may not be antique, but it’s clean and beautiful. Even the bathrooms are nice – they have old movie posters as decorations. There is a large variety of food and drinks too.
