New Beverly Cinema

One of the oldest revival houses in the area, the New Beverly began life in the twenties as a vaudeville theater and went through a few more incarnations before emerging as the repertory movie-house it is today. Double features run daily for a set price of seven dollars. A lot of the programming is of the arty European sort, but there’s a fair share of blockbusters and cult favorites (“Raiders of the Lost Ark,” for example) that children will love seeing on a big screen with a packed audience.
