The interior is nice, and the seating is comfortable, reclines a little. It’s owned by Chinese Theatres. The movie is iMax Emma Watson’s Beauty and the Beast  (it’s all about her). It’s a part of the big complex, parking is inexpensive. Wiki. The same real estate developer Charles E. Toberman also built Egyptian.

Runyon Ranch


3050 Runyon Canyon Rd,
Los Angeles, CA 90046

It’s on the long and winding Mulholland Drive (remember the movie – directed by David Lynch in 2001; mystery/crime). The hike is pretty steep and parking is tight – a cop is handing out tickets; but the views are great. The day starts cloudy but as we climb, the skies clear up. Hooray.

Ssam Korean BBQ


1040 S Western Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90006

You come here to eat, with gusto. Authentic and down to earth atmosphere (no frill). Friendly and energetic young male waiting staff. The parking lot is small and can get busy easily. Another name for this restaurant is veggie wrap: aside from the usual romaine and lettuce, they offer mint (so large and round, very pretty), rice flour sheets, seaweed and even parsley, pretty neat. It’s my first time to eat white/colorless kimchi. They also offer the egg pot and kimchi pot are on the house. I’ll return.
