Some of the screening rooms have bigger screens than others. Good quality sound comfortable seating, excellent popcorn, clean and well managed. Nearby eateries and shops on a pleasant street to take a stroll. Adequate parking. Not an art-house theatre--good selection of movies in current release.

This is a good movie place when on a budget. It's small inside but theatre is good quality. Lines can get long so best to arrive early. Take hand sanitizer. Staff are friendly.

I love the Whittier Village Cinema. It's kind of old school, but in a good way. It just has a nice, vintage feel to it. And it's in my favorite part of Whittier, the Uptown area. There are several really good restaurants nearby if you want to make it a dinner-and-a-movie date. There's also a Starbucks and a Coffee Bean... More

Not one of your major theater chains but it has sound, a screen and seats, and the occasional kid crying in a rated R movie.

Location is in the middle of uptown Whittier which allows you to walk around, have dinner, or drinks before taking in a great movie. Theatre carries most big released except Sony pictures for some reason. Prices are reasonable with student and senior discounts. Food is also reasonable for a theatre. Family of 4 can have a movie and share popcorn... More
