  • In these days of blockbuster films and inane sequels, it is a gift to have Laemmle Theatres in Claremont, California. Laemmle includes international, independent, and art films in its repertoire. One ...  more »

  • Great art house theater showing films you won't find in the larger theaters but they do have a few blockbusters as well. Theaters are small but most seats are good.
  • So my family want to see Despicable Me and they want to go to the Terra Vista in Rancho Cucamonga. I talk them into going to the Laemmle in Claremont because the Laemmle has better popcorn, (real butter, not wd40) We get there just before the 4:20 showing. Now it's kids movie, right? and kids like popcorn, right? There isn't any popcorn! The two idiots behind the counter can't be bothered to turn around and see if there is any popcorn??? I ask the girl if she knows who is the guru of popcorn and she doesn't get it. The guy finally wakes up, panics and burns the popcorn. They have to dump it out and start over. I am told to come back ten minutes into the movie to get our popcorn. Are you kidding me? It gets better. I call and ask for the manager and get a guy who says "I'm a manager". I tell him the story and he says, "I'm sorry about that"... that's it! It is really too bad because their popcorn (when they bother to make it) really is quite good. Next time I go I'll call first and ask them if anyone is monitoring the popcorn, seriously?
  • Great place for a date night. Old school theater with smaller seating area. Doesn't get crowded very often. Shows movies from the top of the list and lots that don't make the list so expect some good independent films and documentaries. Popcorn here is not all that great. Don't use the bio-straws unless you enjoy not drinking your drink because your straw disintegrated. Interesting local art pieces in the lobby and the hallways. Many good places to eat and drink nearby. I suggest Walter's on Bonita and Yale
  • Small 5-plex theater. Clean, good prices, good popcorn, Really nice staff.
  • We were too early for lunch locally so made it into the movies (to kill time and see GG2) with plenty of time to see movie even past the start time due to the credits.It is a quaint small but very clean theater.We were very comfty in the seats.The pop corn and drinks were not too ridiculously priced and we even got $9.00 Matinee tickets.We would return.Clean bathrooms- a bonus. I can see where the employees may get bored as it was almost empty at the 10:10 AM showing however the tickets, concessions and ticket taker were all very nice and alert. We will make a drive to this theater and plan a day in old Claremont visitingthe shops, eats and a movie.
