La Paloma

Enveloped in jasmine, eucalyptus, and gardenia scented breezes, La Paloma sits quietly on South Coast Hwy 101 just a short walk from Moonlight Beach, Heavenly Nails, Bliss Boutique, Lotus Café, and Swamis Beach.

In a city best known for surfers and yogis, this historic Spanish Colonial Revival style movie theatre bridges the old age with the new age. Built in 1927 and opening in 1928, it was one of the first theatres to transition from silent films to “talkies”.

Today La Paloma features a variety of movies, indie films, concerts, and every Friday there is the Rocky Horror Picture Show at midnight. With its original seats and the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner whistling by just behind the building, La Paloma has plenty of atmosphere and charm.

In a world that always changes too fast, where everything is supersized and multiplexed, it’s nice to have a place where simplicity lingers in a small single theatre remembering its past yet thriving in the present.
