    New Landmark Theater Sunset Opens with Exclusive Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City Pop-Up

    Though technically not in the city of West Hollywood, but still a WeHo favorite theater destination, the new Landmark Theater Sunset has opened at the former AMC Sunset 5 theater, at 8000 Sunset Boulevard. The new theater opened its doors with an extraterrestrial blast by offering an exclusive pop-up experience of Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City film.

    Focus Features has transformed Landmark Theatres Sunset into a real-life Asteroid City for an exclusive two-week immersive experience. Moviegoers will have the opportunity to explore the fictional town of Asteroid City in person while capturing photos with set re-creations, props from the film, and costume displays. Tickets are available for a Standard Experience or Premium Experience, the latter of which includes an exclusive t-shirt and concessions combo that only available at Landmark Theater Sunset. The movie is 1 hour and 45 minutes, so arrive at your scheduled showtime to walk through the immersive experience prior to watching the film. The experience and the film will take approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes.

    ASTEROID CITY takes place in a fictional American desert town circa 1955, where the itinerary of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention is spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events. The American science fiction romantic comedy-drama film is directed and co-produced by Wes Anderson from a screenplay by Anderson and a story by Anderson and Roman Coppola. The film features an ensemble cast that includes Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hanks, Jeffrey Wright, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Liev Schreiber, Hope Davis, Steve Park, Rupert Friend, Maya Hawke, Steve Carell, Matt Dillon, Hong Chau, Willem Dafoe, Margot Robbie, Tony Revolori, Jake Ryan, and Jeff Goldblum.

    The AMC Sunset 5 theatre shuttered at 8000 Sunset Boulevard on April 16. However, it did not stay closed for long. Landmark theaters purchased the space and stuck to their plans to open in June. It is bringing back arthouse movies to the 31-year-old space.

    Just learned of this today, and I’m very grateful. Had not been in there for years. I loved Virgin Music in the 90’s and I loved seeing movies there when it was Lumele Theaters. Saw many memorable films in that place. When the place became AMC I completely lost interest. Leave the AMC’s in Century City and Burbank. Sunset & Crescent Heights deserves something a little more unique. Now that Landmark is there I will start going out to the movies again. I loved Landmark at Pico and Westwood for years, and was so saddened to see it close, as… Read more »
