The only place we go for dinner and a movie!

Speaking for myself and my family...we LOVE the Palms. I've heard many complaints ranging from the noise to the lighting but all in all, it's been a great experience for us. NO... read more

We like this place a lot. Not only is it great that you don't have to sit and watch 20 minutes of previews, but you get waited on and the food is pretty good. They also have alcohol. Popcorn is better than most shows. You have to try it and look up the daily specials...

Going to the movies had become an unpleasant experience until we started going to the Palms. It shares a customer model with Hollywood Blvd Cinema, but they are owned by different people. They provide an experience that includes movie, with food and drinks brought to you. HOW IT WORKS - 5/5 Stars After buying your tickets at the box office,... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2015 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The movie theater requires you to buy one item per person. I usually order a dinner or dessert since the movie is free when we go with birthday passes. Lately, their meals have been worse than usual and take too long to come out. This causes them to interrupt the movie to deliver food. If you sit on the aisle,... More

Went to the The "PALMS" on the coldest night of the year so far. It was a good time. Went and saw "UNBROKEN" It was worth it. Hit the little bar they have and wife and I had a drink. Our friends showed and we went in. The staff is attentive for the most part. Very nice and accommodating. It... More

Hollywood Palms offers food and drink while you watch a first run movie. The food selections are pretty good and reasonably priced. This is one of our go to option for a movie and dinner when we don't really have the time for a separate dinner at a more upscale restaurant. The wait staff do a good job minimizing the... More

This is a fun place to visit-- from the decor right thru to the movies. Dinner is served if you so choose, and, while the food would do nothing for a gourmet, it IS edible and varied.
