Mann National

10925 Lindbrook Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90024
(310) 208-4366

Review by: Kirk Tsai from Home Theater Forum 02/04/07

National and Village are two of the best old time, single screen theaters, along with the Chinese. Great sound and screen, and top notch prints. Watching movies at these places, and then even other respectable theater chains, I really thank there is a difference between the prints the theaters receive.

I haven't been to National and Village in a while, but they used to have the opening curtain tradition too, which adds a touch of class.

Only downside is that Westwood parking is never good; most patrons would have to go for the paid lots.

Crowds are good, with lots of students. Big movie events are a blast, and of course a lot of movie premieres there if you want to catch celebrity sightings.

Seats are not great.

Cinema Grade = B
