Best and freshest popcorn EVER! Not sure if it's some kind of special oil or kernel they use, but it is bomb! Reasonable drink prices as well. Great time at the theater.

Very funky theater. Pretty decent seats. Small counter, limited selections of snacks. Pretty darn friendly staff.

Billy Matthews

Went for a film festival. very cool layout gets a bit stuffy and hot when the place is packed which was the night I went. But we're gladly go back to see more movies there lot of bars close by too for cool after parties.

Charlie Pecoraro

Had a screening of my doc, Circle the Wagen, there I'll never forget

Thomas Schneider

Great little venue but parking not so good

Michelle Klein-Hass

A historic little cinema, Little Tokyo adjacent. Historic because this was the Linda Lea, one of the first LA theatres to show classic Japanese movies when they were current. It was dead for the longest time, then first became the Imaginasian Theatre, them the Downtown Independent. I believe they still have 35 and 16mm film projection capabilities as well as modern digital projection. A little theater with heart and soul. Keep it alive.

Favorite theater in the heart of downtown LA. Always something good to watch here.

Shok Newgrounds

This is one of my favorite theatres. Besides presenting amazing films, there is a great and FREE comedy show every week, Sleepaway Camp, where top comedians and underground, upcomers share their craft! The staff is also very friendly and well informed. Bonus: The concessions include an array of the standards plus for those interested, there are alcoholic beverages a' plenty! Tip: The first few rows of stadium seating have extra-comfy reclining chairs.

I went here for Hump Fest 2018 and 2019. Theater is clean and sleek. They served wine and beer in addition to soft drinks and popcorn. Support independent theater! It's 0.7 miles away from the red and purple line station called Civic Center/Grand Park. It's a matter of one block down and three blocks over. The picture is just a great sign on a building just next to it..

Dominique Tran

Great theatre. I only go up here to see smaller movies that are not shown in regular theatres. Definitely a great thing to be able to watch movies that aren't available in other theatres here. Their seats are comfortable and they have decent arm rests. They also have "VibeLights" or something along those lines that provide mood lighting to the theatre. I thought it was a neat feature though the films I have seen there have not completely utilized it. I will definitely be coming back here as long as they keep offering the show obscure or foreign films that you cannot fild elsewhere.

Ethan Coco

Cool theatre with a very small town, small community vibe. Could have a big potential for something bigger (events anyway). Went and saw The Holy Mountain in 35mm... Projectionist forgot to switch the reel halfway through, but that only added to the experience. I will be going back for sure. $10 for a medium popcorn, water, and a Lagunitas IPA? Forget AMC.

Dope spot, but technical difficulties when I went to a screening. It took way too long to fix.

Cool little theater, we were the only ones there to watch the Nutcracker from ROH. They need a better website, and a more up-to-date, on-demand selection of INDIE FILMS. THIS IS LOS ANGELES FOR GOLLY GOSH SAKES, GET YOURSELF TOGETHER

A very simple independent movie theater that show indie films and special screenings. The theater is very tiny so if you are watching a show here I recommend coming as early as possible so you can get a good seat. They have a tiny concession stand that sells popcorn, pretzels, soda and beer. They have a pretty decent selection of craft beers including Angel City & Golden Road. Surprisingly every time I've been to the theater I've been able to find a meter spot so keep your eyes peeled.

Clean and arranged seating makes it easy to get seats. This is how it should be in all theaters so that there's no reserved seating. Their pretzels are delish! So is the popcorn! There's a senior special which is buy a drink and get small popcorn for free so if you have your parents with you, get the deal ;)

Went here for #RomComFest and had a blast!!

Noel Braham

I wouldn't recommend renting their theater for your next screening. The managing director (Alex) and staff are very rude, insensitive, and extremely unprofessional. The Downtown Independent decided to disrupt our partnership and cancel the event less than a month before we were suppose to screen. There reason which was cited as "arriving at the theater unannounced, with no appointment" which wasn't the case. My team had a scheduled meeting to go over logistics and planning for the event on Dec 9th. We were already downtown and I thought it would be a good idea to stop by the location so everyone could familiarize themselves with the venue. We did not know there was an event going on, but seeing as how the venue is a public theater and the event was also public (film festival), I figured an impromptu visit would be okay. The moment we walked in the managing director greeted us with a smug look and a quick comment that we could stay in the lobby. She then made certain comments to her staff, which prompted them to give us unwarranted looks as though we were criminals. My team and I had a brief talk in the lobby. I then spoke to Mike (staff member) and asked him if there was any way I could show my team inside the theater to take a quick look, and he told me no. I then went to speak to the host of the event,who told me it wouldn't be a problem. I then paid for a ticket to their festival as a courtesy for allowing me to go in. As we're making our way inside, the staff member comes running and yelling from the concession stand, shouting that he already told me no and was going to ask me to leave. He ran over to the door of the theater and tried to close the door on my team. I let Mike know I had already spoken to the host of the event and paid for a ticket, and took my team inside the theater. Then their staff went running and yelling up the stairs. One of the host of the event saw the whole thing unfold, and offered my team and I a seat due to Mike's erratic response. When we exited, no more than two minutes later, The managing director was speaking to one of the members of my team, and I explained to the managing director that I cleared things with the host and paid for a ticket. She then started telling me that I couldn't just come to the venue space without an appointment. I asked her if it is indeed a public space, hosting a public festival, why I couldn't buy a ticket and enter the theater like any other patron since they are making it such a big deal and she didn't have an answer. By the end of the ordeal, we both agreed there had been a huge misunderstanding and that it was blown out of portion due to their staff and the way they handled everything. My team left the venue and continued our meeting down the street. I had every intention of sending a follow-up email to Alex the next morning, but instead received the news that my event was cancelled. After I requested the owners email "Jim" to make him aware of everything. Again, I'm an indie filmmaker that wanted to host an event in hopes of raising awareness about other local artist and the homeless community. Sad and disappointed how this entire situation was handled due to the uncalled for behavior of the venue director and staff. Please whatever you do. Don't rent here.

Well... the prices are equivalent to AMC. So I have no complaints. The upside is that it is in a convenient location. The downside is that parking can be hard, and you will have to deal with the Korean captions. All in all, it was not a bad experience.

For indie movie lovers, this location is great. There are selective plush seats where you can put your feet up and enjoy films in all your glory...even better when you're the only person in the theater! Special events are held at the rooftop, which make this a multi-functional space. Very awesome! Tip: KCRW members get discounts on tickets!

Jason Fracaro

Came here a couple of weeks ago for a screening of "Shotgun Wedding" and can say that this venue is fun. It caters to the independent film scene and judging by their event board, there is always something going down at the Downtown Independent and its neighboring venues. They did have alcohol available for purchase, but I wasn't sure if that was just for special events or not. The theater itself is of decent size and capacity and the sound system is good as well.

This is a really great place. When most theatres are trying to show only the biggest and most overwhelmingly high budget movies and not making any room for independent film and new ideas this place is setting a mark. The owner is a big lover of independent film, independent music and trying to smash different things together to make for really fun events. Events like double-feature drink alongs, comedy nights and live music with visuals. If something is on their calendar and you don't know about it. Just go! Chances are you will have a great time. Oh and they just got BEER ON TAP!!!! If the movie isn't for you then just get hammered!

Nice theater! Seating was comfortable. Concessions were decent.

Rosalie Foster

The Madang mall is rising from the ashes of dead-mall-syndrome, with Downtown Independent at the helm. A great place to see a movie , Korean or Western, with the added benefit of Korean subtitles so you know exactly what the Pacific Rim monsters are saying. Definitely join their Downtown Independent rewards "club" -- points accumulate quickly and I'm always getting a free popcorn, pretzel or drink. Korean movie snacks? Check! Select your own seat in fancy-pants stadium seating? Check! Daiso downstairs? Check. Free validated parking? Check. Move over, Arclight. If the movie you want to see is at Downtown Independent, it is a hit!

Melissa Morch

This old movie house in downtown Los Angeles has a modern lobby with features suggestive of the Art Deco period, such as a large handrail leading up the staircase to the projection booth. The small concession stand and tables provide a clean and relaxing environment to wait for the next feature. The theatre is older and smells of popcorn but this somehow lends to the experience. There are new, plush, seats in a center row in the theatre for the VIP and director. This is a great theatre for movie screenings or? Date night?

My friends, Jalen Coleman & Damien Thurton both held movie screenings at the location for "Silent", "Ashes" & "Breadhunt". It is a dope indie theater. I feel the staff could be more friendly & tech savvy. There were tech problems both times but it was, overall, a great experience.

Popped in for a Friday night date- the building is very interesting in itself. The lobby is very concrete-and-glass-modern, with a small snack stand and some tables for hanging out pre-show. The theater itself is surprisingly large- chairs are comfy and the sound quality is excellent. I'd come again- price is comparable to the giant chains so might as well support something different!

A great hub for indie films and festivals. I enjoyed a drink-a-long double feature, and the crowd was as into it as I was. Bring your friends or make new ones, but most importantly, come for the films and enjoy the big screen the way the locals do: with a beer in your hand.

A great hub for indie films and festivals. I enjoyed a drink-a-long double feature, and the crowd was as into it as I was. Bring your friends or make new ones, but most importantly, come for the films and enjoy the big screen the way the locals do: with a beer in your hand.

Interesting space. Good theatre with reasonably comfortable seats and good visibility from every row. Perfect for screenings.
