As a gesture of thanks to the community that has sustained us for seventy-five years, Laemmle Theatres is pleased to announce HELP FOR THE HOLIDAYS. We have matched each of our theatres with a specific local charitable organization. The funds raised from the sale of Flicks candy at each theatre during this holiday season will be passed on to the following worthy organizations:
Every time someone purchases a Flicks Candy for $2.50, Laemmle Theatres will donate $1.00 to charity. We also have special combinations:
1) small popcorn, small fountain drink + Flicks for $8.25 ($1 Off for Patron & $2 going to charity)
2) medium popcorn, medium fountain drink + Flicks for $9.00 ($1.50 Off for Patron & $2.50 going to charity)
3) large popcorn, large fountain drink + Flicks for $9.75 ($2 off for Patron & $3 going to Charity)
Claremont – HOUSE OF RUTH
Monica – OCEAN PARK COMMUNITY CENTER
NoHo – L.A. FAMILY HOUSING
Playhouse – UNION STATION HOMELESS SERVICES
Music Hall and Royal – WESTSIDE FOOD BANK
Town Center – SOVA
We don’t normally sell Flicks, but it is a delicious, old-timey candy first introduced in 1904. Try it! We’ll only be selling it through the holidays.

The New York Times just published Terrence Rafferty’s piece about Ralph Fiennes’ new film about Charles Dickens, THE INVISIBLE WOMAN. He directs and stars as the great novelist and, as it happens, plays Magwitch in a new production of GREAT EXPECTATIONS, which we’ll open in multiple theaters this month. We’re also excited to open THE INVISIBLE WOMAN on Christmas Day.
NPR just gave CAPITAL a great review. Ella Taylor writes “Costa-Gavras’ film excels as a meticulously researched procedural that goes deep into the grime of greed, deception and cynical exploitation. But it is also a wickedly clever character analysis of a man more divided against himself than his preternatural calm suggests.”
