Great place for a date with a lovely lady. Nice clean venue with very close adjacent parking. Validation from the theater is good. In close proximity of great dining, drinks, music and even dancing. Great place to start the evening with much close by to close it out.

The theater is very nice and the location is great. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of parking is available. I loved the popcorn. Can't watch a movie without excellent popcorn.

There's also a bar nearby, safari themed, that was incredible. Oakland is so underrated. I think I liked it more than San Francisco! Great cinema, cheap tickets, excellent restaurants nearby.

Tolerable but not the best theater in the Bay Area. Auditoriums are okay, but the crowd can be a bit rough. With all the theaters in the East Bay there's no reason to go out of your way to go to this theater.

Stopped going here as the crowd is often rough and the theater and lobby areas become trashed. Too bad because the location is good.

With the superb deals on Sundays and Tuesdays ($5), we like this theater when in the Jack London Square area. It is well run. There is a parking garage across from the theater. They do validate. The staff is good here.

This theatre was the to go place for us in JLS. Now they have $5 Sundays and Tuesdays and that brings the crowds out. We were there to see a movie on Tuesday night. They have free 3 hour validated parking in the lot across the street.

This theater is at Jack London Square and shows first run movies. It has multiple screenings and has a large parking garage across the street, which serves most of Jack London Square and the SF Ferry passengers. During the week the lot may be full.

Typical suburban theater complex with primarily crappy hollywood movies, and games in the lobby so there isn't a quiet moment once you walk in the front doors. Oh, it is in Jack London Square area of Oakland, so it isn't in suburbs but has that mentality. I patronize theaters that generally appeal to adults and this certainly isn't one. I... More
