  • Holy Fuck Comedy Show every Tuesday at 9 is always great!
  • CA (See) Awesome live theater + comedy and great one-off film events (Charlie Sheen weekend, anyone?). The perfect intersection of highbrow and lowbrow.
  • Love the free comedy shows every other Tuesday! Quality comics, cool venue. Grab one of the two-seater chairs if you can!
  • Support indie filmmakers by catching a flick here.
  • Nice place for events. Love the rooftop bar.
  • Large single-screen theater with comfy seats, modern decor and amenities, and free wireless internet.
  • music on the rooftop!
  • Great movie theater!

  • Great venue! We're enjoying watching music videos at LAMVF.
  • Comfy seats, great independent films + plays from Broadway and the West End! Plus beer with my movie!
  • Sit in the extra plush seats toward the front. They go way back...
  • Get something from the bar, they have a great selection and its super high tech. The staff is friendly too:)
  • On April 19th, 2012, Bierut will finally share with us again in his talk titled Learning on the Job: 10 Lessons from 35 Years in Design. Join us for an event that you simply cant miss! #BierutInLA
  • Here for Holy Fuck! It is so funny and FREE!
  • It starts at 8 not 7. $11 for 4 tacos. Not bad
  • We're catching a screening of "The Innkeepers" on February 3.
  • I totally recommend checking out any event at the Downtown Independent. This is a uniquely modern building with a sleek feel.
  • Free wifi here. Just sayin'.
  • Cool venue. They run lots of indie and obscure films as well as numerous forum events like DIY Days. Rooftop bar. The neighborhood is a bit out of the way and doesn't look real cool but really it is.
