Samuel Goldwyn Theatre

Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Beverly Hills, CA 90211
Samuel Goldwyn Theatre

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

The best place in LA to see movies. It has pretty much the best and biggest screen, draws the best audiences, the screen is very far from the first row, so that makes the first five rows some of the best seats in the house, and they show some of the best film events in LA.

Since it is the academy, the studios always insure that the best quality print is sent over, though this is sometimes embarassing for studios like Universal, whose print quality of old films is laughable in comparison to studios that really care like WB, Fox, Sony/Columbia, MGM, Disney, etc. Usually the latter studios will strike a new print, just for the academy screening, while Universal sends over a vintage print, circa whatever year the film came out.

Cinema Grade = A
