See the separate Hollywood Theatres by street address page for Hollywood Blvd. locations. Other Hollywood addresses are both on this list as well as on the Hollywood list. Westside addresses are included here except for Wilshire Blvd. See the Westside Theatres by street address page for those. The Along The Coast by address page also has listings for theatres in the beachfront communities from Santa Monica south to the county line. 

The separate San Gabriel Valley section has entries that include Alhambra, Arcadia, Rosemead, El Monte, Temple City, Monrovia, Duarte, Monterey Park, Pasadena, South Pasadena, Pomona and Whittier. There's also a separate San Fernando Valley section that includes theatres in Glendale.
