The Aquarius is yet another irreplaceable and all-too-charming bit of cinematic history. Despite its need for a restoration job, the movie house has the benefit of being situated in a quiet corner of bustling Downtown Palo Alto, which means that it garners a very healthy dose of students on weekends. I simply adore the place … houses such as these take filmgoers back to a simpler time; they are living reminders of what once was and what can be again (hopefully, Landmark will keep it open for many years to come). And with the over-century-old brick building and haunting Stanford Theatre one short block over, these two blocks are extremely rich; not just with local history, but American history as well.
