There has been a Laemmle in the movie business since there’s been a movie business. This is the story of a beloved Arthouse Cinema chain in Los Angeles with an astounding legacy. Over four generations, Laemmle’s have dedicated themselves to supporting, innovating, and elevating the art of filmmaking. Popularizing independent films, documentary films, and their filmmakers, the Laemmle Theatres’ impact on Hollywood and world cinema cannot be overstated. Filmed over 2+ years, ONLY IN THEATERS chronicles the Laemmle family, their business, and their determination to survive. But in a changing world, this is also a story about the future of cinema.
