Founded in 1974, the Landmark Theatres is a chain of unique movie theatre venues across the nation that showcases and markets specialized films. Landmark Theatres has been a part of Cohen Media Group since 2018. It now consists of 46 both new and historic theaters, 233 screens, and 26 markets.
Self-described as creating an “adult-oriented atmosphere,” the Landmark Theatres are the country’s largest theatre chain committed to showcasing and marketing independent films. For those seeking more mainstream movies, Landmark Theatres also screens everything from foreign and niche films to 3-D and Hollywood “smart films,” and everything between.
Each theatre has its own specific amenities, some of which even include unique seating options such as loveseats and couches. The multitude of amenities provided also includes digital projection, gourmet concession options, and on-site opportunities to purchase DVDs, books, and CDs. Additionally, for hearing- and vision-impaired movie-goers, there are a slew of high-tech. amenities that will keep you right in the loop.
Another special aspect of the Landmark Theatres is the intimate film experience the chain offers to movie buffs via the “Filmmaker Letters” page on Landmark’s website. There, you can get the inside scoop on the filmmakers’ inspirations, intentions, struggles, and aspirations regarding both particular film productions and the grander scheme of life.
Each theatre in the Landmark chain is also available for business and private rental, for everything ranging from private screenings, to business meetings, to digital gaming.
“This theater is the best around this area because of the artsy/independent movies they play and the ambiance.”
