The Aero Theatre is run by (owned by?) the American Cinematheque.  From their website:  “The American Cinematheque is a non-profit, viewer-supported cultural organization dedicated exclusively to the public presentation of the Moving Picture in all its forms. The Cinematheque presents the best of film and video – ranging form the classics to the outer frontiers of the art form.”

They also run the Egyptian Theatre, which was built in 1922.  I haven’t been there…yet.

Every year, we go see ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ the week leading up to Christmas.  We have friends and family over, share a meal, and head over to watch Frank Capra’s classic.  I used to watch it on NBC every year, but to see it in a theatre projected onto the big screen; laughing, clapping, and dare I say, crying, with a group of people is something not to be missed.  I love the old movies they play!

If you are in the LA area, or more specifically, the westside or Santa Monica, I would recommend checking out this little gem.  For more information on the American Cinematheque, check out their website:  http://www.americancinematheque.com
