The Nuart Theatre is an art house movie theater in Los Angeles, California, United States. It is the flagship location of the Landmark Theatres chain in the United States.[citation needed]

Location[edit]

The Nuart is on Santa Monica Boulevard, one block from the 405 Freeway. It hosts a weekly midnight movie showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show featuring shadowcast Sins O' The Flesh.[citation needed]

History[edit]

The Nuart was built in 1929. The theater was used in the Chevy ChaseGoldie Hawn comedy film Foul Play, although the film is set in San Francisco. John Waters created a short "No Smoking" spot for the Nuart Theatre in appreciation to the theater for showing Pink Flamingos for many years. Director Michel Gondry filmed part of Beck's video for "Deadweight" at the Nuart. The Nuart is mentioned in Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death.

The Nuart was bought by Landmark Theatres in 1974 and was the first Landmark theater, along with the UC Theater in Berkeley. The theater was remodeled in 2006 and currently seats 303 people.[citation needed]
