The best place in San Diego to watch limited release films. Nice clean theater. Good seats and sight lines. Validated parking! What more could you want?

This is my favorite movie theatre in San Diego. Love the ¨cinéma d´art¨and the indie films shown here. Parking ticket validated, good popcorn and Italian sodas. Hillcrest also offers a great variety of restaurants to go to before or après your movie.
