Best Place to See an Obscure Indie Film

If you ever get the urge to see an independent or foreign film whose cast features scarcely any cars that turn into robots, you’ve only two choices: Take your chances at the multiplex, which shunts its non-Hollywood fare to one lone screen if it has any such films at all—or go to Theatre7. This intimate Arts District theater is barely larger than your living room, but it brings the goods—everything from the Vegas Indie Film Fest to the CineKink erotic film festival. One night could bring a documentary on Bettie Page, the next night it could be a series of short films by local filmmakers—and when the screen is dark, Theater7 hosts stage productions and gallery shows. It’s a lot of weight for such a small space to carry, but somebody has to do it.
