The Fillmore Towne Cinema
Twice in the past year I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the Fillmore Towne Cinema in the city of Fillmore, California, about 40 minutes from sunny Burbank. This delightful little movie palace only has one screening a day at 7pm, and the $8 ticket admits adults to the balcony section, which is little more than a long single row of perfectly placed seats. In December I saw "Night at the Museum" here and recently screened "Ratatouille." I can’t imagine a more ideal cinema to watch these kinds of movies where the timeless small town family atmosphere envelops you in its movie projector glow. As you can see from the July 2007 photo, the marquee doesn’t even announce the cinema’s name, and so it is that the mystique of this little gem remains a well kept secret in a place where orange groves cover the region.
