Sometimes it seems like the authentic cinema experience that once made Tinsel Town glisten like no other city has all but faded. Indie movie houses like The Downtown Independent, however, prove that L.A. shines as bright as ever. Tucked away in the Little Tokyo neighborhood of Los Angeles, this single-screen, super-slick theater bring audiences not only the finest in international arts films, but also an eclectic mix of local indie talent. Among the many screenings during the month of November are Charged: The Eduardo Garcia Story (USA, 2017), Salón Mexico (Mexico, 1949), Bolívar, A Tropical Symphony (Venezuela, 1979), On the Beach at Night Alone (South Korea, 2017), and Perfect (Canada, 2016). The Downtown Independent is also known for staging an array of live entertainment, including hot local music acts and emerging talent on the L.A. stand-up scene.
