Showcasing the Best in Independent Film, Arena screens hard-to-find indie gems you search for and yearn to see that aren’t getting the big screen love anywhere else but with them! Arena Cinema was formally a part of the historic Egyptian theater, and in the 1970s and 80s was known to Los Angeles moviegoers as Egyptian 2 and 3, an extension of the main theatre. In the early 90′s, when United Artists gave up on the Egyptian complex, 2 and 3 became a theater while the Egyptian would endure a renovation led by the American Cinemateque. Voltaire Media led by Christian Meoli has reopened the cinema in true DIY fashion keeping in the spirit of independent films that the Arena will exhibit. Arena Cinema has new seating, new sound, HD projection plus streaming ability on a 20 foot widescreen that caters to multiple aspect ratios, all while being able to maintain the venues original aesthetic design that United Artists set-up back in the early ’70′s.
