“Eat, drink, and enjoy your movie”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

I really chose this theater because it was showing the movie I wanted to see at the time I could see it. If you're not familiar with the area, it is in an old, mostly repurposed mall, down on the first level, just past the food court.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this was one of those food/drink/movie venues. I was there for an afternoon showing, and saw many folks around me ordering food. I didn't order, so can't comment on the food quality, but the servers seemed friendly and when they were delivering food after the movie started, they were very quiet and unobtrusive. There is a bar on site, so you could order any beverage you were in the mood for, beyond just sodas.

The location had me a bit wary, as the mall was definitely past it's prime as a shopping venue. But it was nice to see that much of the spaces were being used for other businesses- an exercise place, a physical therapy business, etc. The theater was much nicer inside than I expected as I walked up to it, so don't let the location scare you off. Consider planning better than I did, and combine your meal with your movie!

“Super Art House Theatre Which Also Serves Food While You Watch”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Prices are great for art house foreign movies that you can't see at your AMC. They also have a good menu selection (including some healthy salads and fruit and cheese plate) and Mimosa Sundays. You can eat while you watch your movie. Prices very reasonable, service friendly and prompt.
