Great rates and the newest movies. I love the vintage neon signs and the surrounding business. Yummy ice cream next door, wish we could bring it in! Plus they hold classic movies on certain days of the week, so much fun!

We've been to this theater several times and have enjoyed each visit. Although the theater may look small, they have giant screens. Not Imax but still very big and bright. They have good deals through their website that make visits here a great value.

Price is great and even better before 12:00 pm. Small yet cozy and choices of movies selection. I like the fact it's not far from the shopping center.

The facade out front is old school blinking neon lights, but inside every theater is stadium seating. They have first run movies and even a classic movie series that runs throughout the year. During the week there are kiddie matinees for the little ones and their parents to attend. I think the kids even get in free. Plus if you... More

Time weighted prices make this theater a good value. Parking can be challenging but it's worth it. Generic design inside but the uptown area does have some charm

Located in Uptown Whittier, this theater has about 8 screens showing the latest movie releases. The prices are the best you'll get of any theater showing newly released movies.

Starlight Cinema is a neighborhood theater and we are lucky to have them in our town. They have wonderful family and senior specials and the theater has been remodeled and looks good too. There is a variety of theater sizes and they show top first run movies. My husband I and frequent this theater.

This is a very quaint and charming cinema. The location and building have a retro feel, but (in addion to some classic offerings) they had an assortment of the latest films playing. My husband and I happened by and decided on an impromptu date night....yay!!!!! A grand time was had by all!!!
