If the script calls for a classic, old-time movie theater, Smith recommends this remodeled and restored Art Deco theater that opened in 1931. It's where Kate Beckinsale chokes up during a newsreel in the World War II tear-jerker "Pearl Harbor" and is Kate Bosworth's date-night spot of choice in "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!"
