“"This is how to see a movie"”

Violet Crown Cinema
Ranked #13 of 63 Fun & Games in Austin
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 July 2012

is what my wife said after an evening at the Violet Crown Cinema. We enjoyed a couple of choice wines, some appetizers, comfortable cinema seats, the movie Bernie and the overall ambiance of this place. It is truly an "Austin" experience right in the heart of downtown. After the movie, we enjoyed strolling the streets of downtown Austin and watching people. We will definitely return.

The Violet Crown (so named because Austin, in the right sort of setting sun, has a violet aura!) is a great place to watch a movie because it's a small place, the seats are reclining and comfortable, tasty - but expensive - snacks are available, and all seats - buy tix online - are reserved! Free parking at AMLI but if this is your first visit to V.C. there are lots of AMLIs so be careful to pick one near the theater.

We went to see Bernie; great experience in this cozy, cool, comfortable Movie Theatre. They have very few seats; therefore it's a must to buy ticket (numbered) in advance in their HP. Good bar in a nice atmosphere.

Roomy, comfy seating.. and RESERVED seats which I found both shocking and awesome. Full bar and food available, with lots of choices, but you have to get it beforehand or go get it during the movie, since they don't have waitstaff in the theater. (my 2 cents, having a waitstaff in the theater is really convenient, but it's also a distraction.) All this and a hip downtown location just a few feet from several good restaurants, bars, and live music venues. Definitely will be returning!

Tried this place on a friends recommendation. Went to see Shame as we were too late to get into Descendants. The staff in the bar were very friendly and they had 10 local beer options on tap! Food options were pretty good too and the movie theater was great. Only 10 rows and 10 seats per row so very intimate.
