About the Movie
The New Beverly is a theater where a double feature is still $8 - cash only. A theater where David Lynch pops by for a secret Q&A and where Edgar Wright introduces our monthly midnight screening of Scott Pilgrim whenever he is in town. A theater where directors program a week of their favorite films and come down to talk about how they inspired them. A theater where Fassbinder, Romero, Scorsese and Hitchcock films all show in the same week. Where you could catch a double feature of Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons - then stick around for the midnight screening of Cool As Ice. A place where the owner and employees genuinely care about cinema and are excited to talk to you about what the ending of Primer really means, or to recommend a film you've maybe never heard of. Since 1978 we've been home to dedicated film geeks, casual moviegoers and some of the greatest directors and actors in the world - everyone is treated equally here. We're one of the last places where that happens.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: At 20 minutes, it would have been delightful. At 90, it's fan non-fiction.
Passionate Perspective on Film
Educational and entertaining documentary about a special theater and passion for film. Insightful perspectives from well-know and beloved filmmakers in the industry!
A Love Letter To Film
Great film, but at times becomes a little too "inside joke"-ish. While hearing the passionate anecdotes & pleas from patrons and employees gives the film a very personal feel, it also becomes grating at times as the pretension starts to swell, and the obnoxiousness of some of these folks makes you understand why no one wants to come to the New Beverly. As they mock “those other revival houses” for their exclusivity, they end up sounding like they thing they preach against.
