Big thumbs up, always a pleasurable experience. Small enough that there isn't a bad seat in the house. Laguna Playhouse definitely lives up to it's reputation. Will always patronize and recommend to others. Great night out, would make an awesome date as well!!

Great choice of local movie theater from the 50s where manager sells and takes tickets. A/C and not crowded for your movie experience. Try it once and you'll be back again and again.

This is a real old time picture house, sliced in half to accommodate 2 film simultaneously. Great throwback experience.

Wonderful experience to go to this theatre......totally gorgeous and the concert was wonderful. Plays and concerts performed here. South Coast Shopping Ctr right across the way and what a shopping mall it is.
