Yesterday, we went to see The Artist at the Vista Theatre. What a wonderful theater. Only one screen, beautifully restored, the Egyptian motif a time capsule back into pure Hollywood whimsy. I can't think of a more perfect theater to see The Artist, a modern silent film about Hollywood in the 20s and 30s. (Great, fun film, BTW.)
The Vista first opened in 1923 and it's had a rough history, according to an old LA Times article. At one point, it was a porn house! Now it's a lovely, romantic theater, a great place to have a first date. One caveat: we found their sound system a bit harsh, made worse because the sound was being played on the loud side.
