INFO: In 2015, Aquarius Theatre underwent a remodeling. Both auditoriums were completely renovated, and feature larger screens, new lighting, and luxury leather seating, including recliners in one auditorium. Other improvements include a renovated marquee, all new lobby and concessions stand with lounge, new restrooms and ticket kiosks. The expanded concessions menu features hot offerings like sweet potato fries and smoked Gouda mac & cheese bites.
Additionally, the Aquarius features Hearing Loop, an assistive listening system for the hearing impaired that wirelessly sends pure sound to hearing aids that have the 'telecoil,' eliminating background noise and the need for a headset.
Built in 1969, and operated by Landmark since 1985, the Aquarius Theatre features the finest in independent and foreign language cinema. Cinematographer Haskell Wexler and Francis Ford Coppola's feature film debuts were among the first films shown at the theatre. Located around the corner from Stanford University in the heart of Downtown Palo Alto, the Aquarius has the benefit of being situated in and around some of the best dining, shopping and recreation areas in Palo Alto.
