“worth the visit”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

This is for the movie theater and theater only. You get to pick your seats which are leather recliners. food prices are high, but what do you expect theaters have to make money. Tickets are the same as any other movie theater. We try to frequent this theater for first run movies only.

“You will never go to another theater”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

OK, there are 3 drawbacks to this theater: The seats are so comfortable you will want to sleep in them. They don't show all movies, since it's a small theater. And they don't serve booze. Otherwise, this is easily the only theater in the area actually worth the typical DC movie theater prices. Once you reserve seats online you won't go back.

“Best Movie Theater in Arlington and Alexandria”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I like everything about this theater, the staff, the concession stand, the great reclining seats, and the use of Fandango to reserve seating.

“Only movie theatre I will go to”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I always hated the movies because I found the chairs to be uncomfortable much like an airplane. After going to a movie here I will never go anywhere else again!

I love making the reservations so you don't even have to fight for a seat. Sometimes it sucks because all of the good seats are taken so you have to wait for another day.

“Wonderful Reclining Seats & Small Size Theater Rooms”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

My boyfriend and I first came to this theater in September 2013 to check out a movie during the weekday evening. When you purchase your tickets, you must select the seats you want to sit in (first time we ever experienced this). We found out the seats are recliners, which was great. What was a nice surprise is the theater rooms are not huge so there are not an overwhelming amount of seats inside each one. The seats are sooooo comforable! On the weekends & holidays, get tickets way ahead of time because they sell out. The theater has a convenient location near a Metro subway stop and there is a free parking lot next to the theater. However, the free lot stays packed usually (you might have to wait until a space becomes available). There are other public lots in the vicinity, as well (prices vary). Good restaurants are close by (we never bought food, in the theater, because it tends to be overpriced).
