Tucked away in the Little Tokyo area of downtown Los Angeles, this ultra modern movie theater that is known for showing indie films and hosting special events. The Downtown Independent, aside from being a movie theater, is an architecturally stunning venue with steel and glass sleek shaped cube design that opened after a huge renovation in 2007. The space features just one theater with 222 comfortable seats. Beer is sold at the concession stand, making it far from a usual movie-goer experience.
