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!

I happened upon the Crescent Theater while looking for things for my wife and I and another couple to do in Mobile Al. The Crescent is a throwback to old town small theaters which are becoming hard to find. Max the owner/ticket seller/ticket taker/seller of concessions/projectionist is the ultimate host. He was very friendly and accommodating. We were early for... More

What a great little theater! Its an older, lovely building.The owners are very welcoming and show great movies. You can relax in Lazy Boy chairs in the first row and enjoy snacks and a beer or bring your own food. It is an all around fun place to see a flick.

I have been to several movies at the Crescent, and the owner seems to have great taste in showing current and classic movies. I also like the choice of drinking a alcoholic beverage during a show. A nice touch.

Get there early, grab some beer and wine and then kick back in a recliner. The movies are often not strictly mainstream. This is a laid back venue.

We were in for Bayfest. I bought the movie tickets online. It was a little over 10 bucks each with tax/ect. There is a row of recliners in the front row that I guess people love.. but they are way to close to the screen for my liking. We sat up near the back. Seats are comfy. Place is clean.... More

If you're from out of town, you'll probably want to tell your friends back home about it. Max, who owns and runs the place will seem like an old friend before you leave. The Crescent alternates artsy type films with Hollywood hits. Mid-week, Max will sell you your ticket, get you your popcorn, introduce the movie from the front of... More

Love this place - come in and buy your ticket, along with your beer or wine, then enjoy a little background on the movie you're fixing to see provided by the owner, who then runs the film himself (no 20-minute previews). If you need a drink refill, you get it in the lobby and settle up when the movie's over.... More

Were a little disappointed that many if the recliners are broken but we go here every time we visit dauphin island. Saw "my old mother" today and really liked it. Will return next trip!
