“In commemoration of our 50th Anniversary, we want to recognize our guests, studio partners, and members of the creative community who’ve played pivotal roles in Landmark’s storied history,” said Kevin Holloway, president of Landmark Theatres. “Throughout 2024 we’ll be offering evergreen programming across the business, ranging from signature series to food and beverage promotions, loyalty member pricing, and more. We look forward to celebrating this milestone with our audience this coming year.”

The planned series include “1974 – The Year Landmark Opened,” “New Hollywood,” encompassing films from the mid-1960s to early 1980s, and “1999 – The Year That Changed Cinema.” Isabel Custudio, a writer who runs the YouTube channel Be Kind Rewind, will host the 1974 movie screenings. Chris Rudd, known for his Movies Are Therapy social media channels, will host the New Hollywood screenings while writer and KTLA contributor Scott “Movie” Mantz will steer screenings of films from 1999.

Moviegoers who sign up for Landmark’s members program will be offered discounts of up to 30% on tickets for selected screenings.

Landmark was founded in 1974 by producer Kim Jorgensen as Parallax Theater Systems. Today, the chain operates 178 screens in 24 markets. Cohen Media Group acquired the chain in 2018.
