UPDATE 2: We’re open!
The wait is nearly over! After almost two years of development and construction, the all new Laemmle Monica Film Center opens this Friday, January 29th!
The Monica Theatre on 2nd Street has been a fixture in the Santa Monica arts scene for 44 years – first as the “Monica Twin” and since 1981 as the “Monica 4-Plex.” Now, after a complete rebuild, the venue’s storied past projects to an even brighter future.
The Monica Film Center now has six auditoriums, all with digital projection, comfy seating, and optimally proportioned, intimate viewing. Adjacent to the two auditoriums upstairs is a mezzanine lounge. In a first for us, visitors will soon be able to order beer and wine from the concession stand.
Later this year, Flower Child will open in the ground-floor restaurant space. A second restaurant, to be announced, will open on the rooftop deck.
Online tickets are available now. The films opening Friday are:
Thank you for your patience! We think you’ll agree that it has been worth the wait!
We will update this post with pictures, more details, and links to buy tickets soon!
