Since the silver age of motion pictures (1974 to be exact) Landmark Theatres have been taking movie lovers on numerous documentary odysseys and flights of story-telling fancy. Today, they're the biggest movie theatre franchise that puts a large focus on marketing independent films. Still, that doesn't mean you won't also see the occasional foreign film, thought-provoking Hollywood hit or a 3-D extravaganza. The chain often features locations with gourmet concession items, avant-garde films of all genres and in-theatre sales of DVDs, books and CDs. With 58 theatres and a total of 272 screens it’s safe to say most serious movie lovers can find a theater nearby.
