The Warner Brothers believed a glamorous picture palace should be a place of escape, a place where dreams come true. They built three lavish art deco picture palaces in Beverly Hills, Huntington Park, and San Pedro. The Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, the first sound-equipped theatre in the South Bay, opened to the public on January 20, 1931, with a star-studded gala premier. Jack Warner christened it "The Castle of Your Dreams," created by its chief architect B. Marcus Priteca and designer A.T. Heinsbergen. What?s your favorite part of your job? Engaging and inspiring our community through the arts. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? In the mid-1990s, we saved the Warner Grand Theatre, a spectacular 1931 art deco movie palace and cornerstone of the town's revitalization. (Plans were to turn it into a swap meet.) Today, we promote and preserve this beautiful theater while also presenting events and educational experiences at the Theatre and at the Grand Annex, our cabaret-style venue down the street.

At Starlight Cinemas, cinephiles can get up close and personal with their favorite celebrities without worrying about security guards or the electric force field that keeps Ralph Macchio from aging. Two movie tickets grant you and a companion access to any 2-D or 3-D movie (subject to availability), projected in pristine HD digital in every auditorium. A large tub of popcorn fuels buttery snacking during trailers, and a free refill ensures patrons have snacks to eat during the feature or to toss over their shoulder during startling horror scenes. Though not valid with this Groupon, each theater is equipped with full concessions should you feel the urge for sodas, candy, or other popular cine-fare. Check Starlight Cinemas’ individual websites for current listings and showtimes.

Welcoming studios awash in natural light enfold booty sculptors as they dip, bend, and fold through The Bar Method, a one-hour workout blending the fat burning of interval training and the muscle-lengthening effects of ballet-barre conditioning. The pair of studios shares a single schedule of multilevel classes held every day of the week, not unlike the sun's favorite pet. Classes begin with a limb-limbering warm-up before moving onto free-weight exercises and pushups, finishing up with a set of intense seat work on the bar and an ab-crunching finale on the mat. Every exercise treats muscles to gentle warm-up and cool-down stretches to facilitate the transition between the studio and one's everyday life atop a music box.
