  • Step away from the multiplex cinemas and enjoy this picture house. Always hosting an array of mainstream AND art house movies. There's usually something for everyone. Multiple food options and free pa...  read more »
  • If you are in the area and it has a movie you want to see, come here. It's an old fashioned theater, no fancy recliners to sleep in or order food and drinks. Prices are better than larger chains, espe...  read more »
  • Best part is small audiences and relatively clean floors. Nice to have a few foreign and art films, but there aren't many. Still, a good break from the megamoviemalls. 
  • They've been low on the indy films lately. Is that a summer thing? Most have been blockbuster kids movies. I love this theater. It has a down to earth vibe. Love that they use real butter on the popcorn. The seats are not reclining, but they're comfortable enough. More comfortable than the new seating in Santa Monica Laemmle. What a waste of money that was for the theater. Please don't do that to the Claremont theater! :-)
  • Laemmle theatre in Claremont is awesome. Very clean, comfortable seats, and the clientele is more sophisticated than your average theatre patron. They have everything from indy movies to blockbusters, and I enjoy them all. REAL butter on the popcorn, and free refill on the medium and large size!
  • I like the location. I like that the front of the theater is not street front. There are many restaurants around the quad that is in front of the theater location. One can make a day or evening of going out and walk around downtown Claremont before or after the show. As far as I can tell pricing is the same at the Laemmle as any other movie establishment and the Laemmle offers quite a large showing of "different" movies.
  • I'm very surprised by the negative reviews. This is my favorite movie theatre. I like that it's small and cozy. They have REAL butter on the popcorn. I can see a movie on opening weekend without waiting in looong lines like at the big multiplexes. Their matinees are well priced, and I have always gotten good service. The best way to enjoy this theatre is to get a Premiere card. You'll get $2 off tickets every day and 20% off concessions. This makes it especially economical when attending a matinee.
  • I enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and pre-purchasing $7 tickets from Connexions in the Honnold Mudd Library at the Claremont Colleges. Most of the movies I go to are nearly empty after the first couple of days. No allergen-free items for sale, but the food prices are reasonable.
