Movie: The Dark Night Rises at Century City AMC
If those artsy billboards all over LA that look like Batman flew right through them didn’t get you, Nolan, Bale, and Tom Hardy combined with Wally Pfister’s stunning visual interpretation should. Century City is one of our favorite theaters in the area, and it’s also a theater that still has seats to the hottest ticket in town (though you should most definitely buy them right after you read this).
Reserve your individual seat at AMC Century City 15 to avoid waiting in lines.
