Claremont Insider: Laemmle Opens Tomorrow

Laemmle Opens Tomorrow

The new Laemmle Theater officially opens in the Claremont Village Expansion tomorrow.

Daily Bulletin columnist David Allen remembered the last theater in town, the Claremont Cinema, and the man who operated it, Gene Harvey. Allen guessed that the new Laemmle will bump us up from #5 to #4 in the best towns list. Maybe the new marijuana dispensary will get us a little higher (sorry).

Tony Krickl in the Claremont Courier also had an article on the Laemmle's opening. Krickl reported that tonight the Laemmle is teaming up with the recently opened Claremont Art Museum for a fundraiser featuring a screening of Molière, a 2007 French film. By the way, check out the redesigned Courier site while you're reading the Krickl article.

Tisza at the Route66 Living blog had some good info on the fundraiser.
