Some of the greatest independent theaters in the world are right here in the City of Angels.

Read on to discover the best independent movie theaters in Los Angeles!

The New Beverly Theater (West Hollywood)
The New Beverly is definitely one of Los Angeles’ most famous independent movie theaters. Originally constructed in the 1920s, it’s been numerous things for numerous generations, including: a nightclub, foreign film theater and even a live nude dance club. Yes, the New Beverly has seen it all. The theater nearly closed its doors for good in the 1990s until filmmaker Quentin Tarantino swooped in and bought it. Thanks to Quentin, the theater is now a thriving hotspot that plays indie, cult and classic films, all in 35mm.
