I love my neighborhood theater! It is located in the heart of West Village in Uptown Dallas, which is conveniently surrounded by restaurants and boutiques. After an afternoon of shopping or dinner/ date night, you can walk up to the Magnolia Theater for a cozy movie showing. Assigned seating is an option, but not a requirement. They also have a...

Went to the movies on Halloween night. Got in quick, had comfortable seats, and saw a great movie. Will return!

Favourite place to see a movie. Boutique theatre with nice bar and great drinks! Really enjoy escaping reality and experiencing a movie here. Fairly priced and food is available.

Being a Landmark Theatre, we assumed it would be a historic building but discovered that instead it is like the other half of their theatres - independent and fun but very modern. That said it was pretty much like any other urban theatre where you enter and buy tickets on the first floor before taking the escalator up to the... More

My wife and I dropped by the Magnolia Theater due to the fact we had three hours to kill before our dinner appointment at Truluck's. It is an old-style theater with the admissions area downstairs and the concession area and theaters upstairs. The layout was really neat and reminded me of the good ole days of Hollywood. We were able... More

We went here to see a little known movie. They play small releases and foreign films. A beautiful theatre with plenty of seating. In a pedestrian mall with restaurants all around. Has a bar and drinks can go into the theatre. Comfortable seating. parking is free in the West garage.

Reserved seating is nice, you don't have to worry with searching for seating or arriving early to ensure decent seats. The bar is a small little corner area but the drinks are great, & its a nice way to pass the time while waiting for a movie. Close parking garages, comfy seats and great staff! It's also a historic theater,... More

In our case the reserved seating was nice. My daughter was on crutches and we had specific seating requirements. Even though the theater was pretty full, we got the seats we needed. Also: Comfy seats, Good quality AV, Very nice and helpful staff, Easy parking, and Great popcorn.

I was really excited about going to this theater. I went to this theater for the first time last night which was a horrible experience. There were a bunch of creepy people. Women in lingere and men in only underwear and socks. I expected more from this movie theater. The pictures online made the theater look really nice and it... More

This theater is in a trendy area of Dallas. Plenty of parking in garages. The service there was excellent. I bought tickets for the wrong time, they fixed it, then brought me popcorn to improve the experience. Very helpful and friendly. I'm very tall, and the seats were a little close like airline seats, but I didn't care. Good movies... More
