I truly have never had an experience like I did going to the Crescent last week. The owner, Max, personally greeted me and treated me like an old friend. And what a great way to watch a first run movie in a recliner drinking a cold beer and munching on popcorn! It is definitely a place to check out and... More

I jumped at the nostalgia of the Crescent Theater. I took my wife to see a movie. It was a cool little theater.

Got there early and sat in a recliner on the front row! So fun! Hope they always are around! Loved it and can't wait to go back.

Very nice alternative to the big box movie theaters in Mobile, AL. The Crescent has such a wonderful laid back atmosphere that you almost don't believe it can be real. Relaxed and friendly management. Bring your own alcoholic beverage if you choose. If you forget, right across the street is a mini-liquor store. The first three rows are fully reclining... More

Small and quirky, this theater in downtown Mobile is a relic from the past yet offers a modern movie experience. Recently upgraded to digital projection, with a new sound system, movies look and sound great, but you do not come here for that. You come to sit in recliners, get your own beer from the cooler, pay at the end... More

This quaint, authentic theater from a bygone age, whilst loaded with old-world charm, has updated digital projection and sound systems so you get the best of both worlds. For those born after the advent of the modern-day multiplex cinema chains came into existence, seeing a movie at this venue will open your eyes to some of the things we have... More

If you're tired of the big box chain movie houses this is a theater for you. With wine and beer on the menu along with soft drinks of every variety it has all the amenities. They typically show independent films but a big budget pic is sometimes on the menu. The seating is theater style and very comfortable. I always... More

On a vacation date night with my husband, this theatre lived up to the reviews. Wonderful owner and personal service,he greeted many of the movie goers by name. The regulars offered us advice on restaurants to go to and were very welcoming. Although some things could use an update, the overall experience was very enjoyable!
