There are no tourist traps in Chula Vista, which is not really a tourist town.
This is the Vogue Theater, an old fashion community movie house complete with ushers--Rachel Welch's mother used to usher here some thirty five years ago! On Saturday's the Vogue offers Kiddy Matinees, just like the old days.
Another unique quality is that the night time price is $3.75 for regular seats and $ 4.25 for the high back seats! Of course, the movies offered have been out for a while. Still, it's a good deal for those on a budget.

Unfortuanately, The Vogue closed it's doors (2006) and though there have been rumors of someone purchashing it and re-opening it as a theater, to this day, (2012) it still it sits vacant. I guess that is sort of a tourist trap.
Unique Suggestions: There are two other movie theaters in Chula Vista, one, the Ultra Star Cinema, at the C.V. Shopping Center and the Regal, out towards East Lake off "H" Street. Both of these are the "multi-plex" type and show all the newest films out.
