Eye on L.A. for May 22, 2010
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- This week on Eye on L.A.: Gold Class Cinemas, Madame Tussauds, Greystone Mansion and the Lake Shrine.
First class seats
Gold Class Cinemas is a new kind of theater in Pasadena and the only one of its kind in California. The concept at Gold Class is dinner and a movie, but it's all-out V.I.P. style. This unique movie experience starts and ends with the red carpet treatment for its guests. With a chic lounge, a five-star menu and your own personal host, guests can expect an enjoyable de-stressing atmosphere before you're shown to your luxurious, first-class movie seat. Gold Class has had such a great response that they recommend reserving tickets online at least four days in advance.

The new flavor of Mexico
It seems like everyone in L.A. loves Mexican food, but it's more than just tacos and burritos being served up at some local favorites. Eye on L.A. visited three Mexican restaurants expanding the palette. Guelaguetza Restaurants serve regional dishes from the state of Oaxaca in Southern Mexico. The first Loteria Grill Restaurant opened its doors in 2002 at LA's Original Farmers Market, and in 2008, Loteria Grill Chef/Owner Jimmy Shaw opened a second location in Hollywood. In downtown Los Angeles, renowned Chef John Rivera Sedlar is serving up his own brand of modern Latino cooking at Rivera Restaurant.
