Laemmle Theatres

Please find below a statement that we recorded, with some updates for the community regarding potential sale opportunities you may have read about in the news. One day, I plan to learn how to express myself using solely written language. But until that day comes, please excuse the use of film clips… I find that such shared cinematic moments are capable of conveying a message more sincerely and precisely than words alone ever could.

Full text for those who prefer to read:

Greg Laemmle here, with an update for our loyal patrons.

You may have heard through the grapevine that our company is up for sale again.

That’s not the case.

What is true, is that we are considering the sale of certain theatre properties.

This isn’t an ideal course of action, but it is something we need to do.

Stimulus programs to date have not been particularly helpful for businesses that are entirely shuttered.

And we’ve been closed for four months, with no reopening in sight.

Our goal is to free up cash, and shore up the financing of our remaining locations.

This isn’t an easy choice.

Bit it will allow Laemmle Theatres to survive.

If we do sell a property, we will secure a lease-back agreement, that will allow us to resume operations once local public health officials deem it’s safe to do so.

For those who think this is trivial, I get it.

There are more important things to worry about right now.

Nothing matters as much as our health, the well-being of our loved ones, and the safety of all essential workers.

But it’s also important to have something to look forward to.

And at Laemmle Theatres, we want to make sure that seeing a movie at your favorite theatre can be part of that future.

I want to thank the Laemmle community for your patience and understanding during this period.

We’ll do our best to keep you updated, as more information becomes available.

In the meantime, remember, always wear your mask.

Stay safe, be kind, and take care of each other. We hope to see you soon. ❤️

The Wild Goose Lake - Official U.S. Trailer

Starting tomorrow don't miss the Chinese box office record-breaker THE WILD GOOSE LAKE.

When smalltime mob leader Zhou Zenong (Chinese superstar Hu Ge) accidentally kills a cop, a dead-or-alive bounty is placed on his head, forcing him on the lam from both the police as well as dangerous gangsters out for the reward. Hiding out in China’s densely populated (and deeply divided) Wuhan province, Zhou becomes entangled with a beautiful, enigmatic woman, who has mysterious intentions of her own. Featuring gorgeous, neon-drenched cinematography and bursts of shocking, expertly choreographed action, THE WILD GOOSE LAKE is “spellbinding” (Rolling Stone), “brilliant" (Indiewire) and “downright Hitchcockian” (AV Club).

Starting tomorrow, don't miss the fascinating new doc THE WOMAN WHO LOVES GIRAFFES.

In 1956, four years before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees and seven years before Dian Fossey left to work with mountain gorillas, 23-year-old biologist Anne Innis Dagg made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa to study giraffes in the wild. In THE WOMAN WHO LOVES, Anne (now 86) retraces her steps, and with letters and stunning, original 16mm film footage offers an intimate window into her life as a young woman, juxtaposed with a first hand look at the devastating reality that giraffes are facing today. Both the world’s first ‘giraffologist,’ whose research findings ultimately became the foundation for many scientists following in her footsteps, and the species she loves have experienced triumphs as well as setbacks. THE WOMAN WHO LOVES GIRAFFES gives us a moving perspective on both.

While trying to figure out what to do next, Scott pines after his ex, Becky (Eloise Mumford), a successful photographer who has since married a former mutual friend. On a night out at the bar, Scott strikes up an unlikely friendship with an eccentric dermatologist, Marty (Billy Crystal), who has regrets of his own. Marty and Scott both help each other find the courage to face the failures in their lives.

The West Coast Boxing Hall of Fame . . . Has held a couple screenings at this cool venue during the past few years. The theaters are best, the staff is cool, and the neighborhood (including the Santa Monica Promenade) has much to offer guests. We'll be back soon!
I've been following the new indie film #LifeandNothingMore, which won the Independent Spirit Jon Cassavetes Award recently. It's an impressive realistic drama about an African-American's daily struggle with real issues of gang influence in neighborhoods and the court system. It opens today and I suggest seeing this important piece of drama.
