Cute, right in the heart of Claremont's Village West, surrounded by good restaurants. As with the whole art house/indie chain, their concession prices are quite reasonable. The Claremont location shows only a fraction of the indie fair at Laemmle' other locations. They say the locals...More

This is one of my favorite movie theatre, it's local and not expensive. They have movies from independent producers that you will not see in the big movie chains . And you have the Claremont Village just a few steps away for dinning and shopping.

It is a shame that while this was a fairly new building, it was not designed with the comfortable chairs. If you don't mind traditional theater and non-incline chairs, then you are good.

Laemmle's Theaters are know for scheduling independent films as well as blockbusters, so the selection is usually pretty diverse. The theater is clean and relatively quiet with an older clientele.

In these days of blockbuster films and inane sequels, it is a gift to have Laemmle Theatres in Claremont, California. Laemmle includes international, independent, and art films in its repertoire. One doesn't have to travel to Pasadena, where the nearest theatre, shows these wonderful films....More
