Good access to parking, theater is a bit older. but prices are reasonable. A good choice if simply going to see a recent film.

A friend and I went to see Mamma Mia 2 and thoroughly enjoyed the movie and the theatre. The seats are very comfortable and view was perfect. Great senior citizen prices and I’m going back.

The theater has all the newest movies out, and it looks like a classic old theater. But you can definitely tell this theater needs some old TLC on the inside. The seats weren’t super comfy, they should consider renovated with bigger seats with more room.

Whittier theater is a small multi-theater venue with assigned seats. Don't expect recliners, but don't expect expensive tickets either. Fairly well maintained theaters with Dolby atom sound. Parking can occasionally be tough in uptown whittier, but never too far to walk a little.

Imagine an old theatre renovated in the heart of a historic downtown with plentiful parking and the movies are only 6.00 for matinee and on thursdays. This is the best part of this little downtown, go next door get tacos or drinks or both and...More
