Aero Theatre

1328 Montana Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90403

Review by: Adam S. from Home Theater Forum 02/03/07

Aero Theatre (part of the American cinematheque) a nice screen and usually better programming than the egyptian, but the seats are awful, the armrests don't move and the seating system is old school, not stadium, like the egyptian.

You need to sit at least two thirds back to really enjoy the films.

Aero draws great crowds though, and is usually more full than the egyptian, probably because it's more community oriented.

The big drawback is parking. There is none, you'll need to park on a residential street within a four block (or more) radius, so arrive early and find a spot. Montana avenue is one of the great shopping secrets of Santa Monica, very chic if you're into that sort of thing. Many cool cafes and dining spots as well.

Cinema Grade = C
