For $10 you see a movie on a big screen with great sound, a bag of popcorn and a drink! The afternoon we were there we were alone in the theater so we had a private showing. It started a terrific thunderstorm during the show so the owner even came in and turned up the sound. This is a great... More

This is a great way to spend an afternoon. Located in centro this is a great little mover theatre. It is located inside an old house with a huge courtyard. When you walk in you go to the bar area and purchase your tickets. For 100 pesos you receive a free drink.....yes margaritas are included and popcorn. The theaters are... More

This little business is proof that somebody at some time made a good movie. Today it is hard to find a movie worth seeing at the local Cinemex and the Pocket Theatre just keeps finding ones well worth seeing. Occasionally a first-run movie appears here shortly after its release and you can enjoy it in the intimacy of a small... More

For 100 pesos you get a movie, popcorn and a drink of your choice (try the margarita, delicious). They show both newer movies and the classics. I've now been twice in a week, the first time I'd been to the movies in over 6 mths. Love this little place. The owner is a great Mexican guy he speaks perfect English... More

Stop in advance by to reserve your place in this small theater. You get a drink, a bag of popcorn and a movie in a theater room that seats about 25 people. Different movies every day.

We've been going to this little movie theater for a few years now. We find the selection of movies (some current, some foreign) interesting and the price reasonable. Seats are comfortable and the popcorn and drink (included in the 100 peso price) are a nice bonus. Note: For movie aficionados, there is the option to buy a card, which gives... More

Casual and easy way to take in a movie and close to centro for those that don't want the hassle of taking a taxi back and forth to the big theatre. When you exclude the price of a drink, the ticket price isn't much different than the Cinemex and the screen is a lot smaller. On the upside, you don't... More

Went here numerous times during my stay. They run recent movies and foreign films. Great deal at $100 pesos for movie, drink (alcohol or non-alcoholic) and a small bag of popcorn. Happy travels.

The owner of this establishment has spoiled our outing too many times for us to enjoy the experience. Major attitude! One time when someone was waiting for his wife who was in the washroom after the show and we were talking the guy told us go go to our Casa or Mama Mia's if we wanting to talk. He refuses... More

I know of no better way to see the oscar nominated films just before the show. In less than two weeks you can see nominated best pictures and foreign entries in a comfortable 20 seat theater. No time wasted with advertisements, long lines or promos for new movies. You can relax with a drink and popcorn for less than the... More
