“Oasis in Uptown”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

Surrounded by restaurants, retail, hustle and bustle, this theater is refreshingly calming. Generally showing films, versus movies. Crowd feels more like a live theater vibe, versus a movie house. Bartenders quietly friendlly, in a way that is reminiscent of old Palm Springs.

“Best Selection of Movies: Hits, Indie and Art House”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

We go to the Magnolia all the time when we are in Dallas. There is always something playing that we like. Well selected films. The parking is easy, lots of places to eat just outside the theater, no roving groups of teenagers unescorted by adults, very clean, great sound in the theater, comfortable seats.

“Hip spot for date night - no teens!”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

This is no shopping mall theater filled with teens. It's a see and be seen hot spot for grown-ups. We booked tickets in advance, showed up about 30 minutes prior to showtime knowing that parking would be a problem. We got lucky with one of the few spots right outside the theater (the garage across the street or the valet are usually the only alternatives). We were greeted with a line in the small downstairs lobby and one cashier working slowly with each customer. When we finally got to the front it was a breeze to pick up our tickets with a flash of our credit card. No need to even sign. The top of the escalator refreshment lobby feels a bit like a club experience. Good people watching. The theater was full with most people arriving just before the start of the show. Hip, fun, clean.
