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

Magnolia is a family favorite for seeing indie movies or enjoying a night in Dallas's beautiful West Village! The seats are really comfortable, tickets aren't outrageous (student discount gets you child's price!) and for the adults, they have a full service bar! Kudos to Rex, one of their great employees, who's been working the host stand every time I've been... More

The Magnolia is the perfect place for adults to see a movie near downtown Dallas. If you can snag the time for a matinee during the week even better as it isn't too crowded. Seats are comfy, you can book your seat ahead of time or if not too crowded find the perfect seat upon arrival. Adult beverages are available... More

....because they have some goofy system that you must choose your seats before even walking into the theater. Look, one reason my wife and I like to go to afternoon movies is so we can sit where we aren't sandwiched in between strangers. Spread out. Cross your legs. Put your coat and purse on the seat next to you. Avoid... More

After attending many movies at Magnolia Theatre I can say that it's one of my favorite places to catch a film. Usually, at the start of the film an employee dictates his welcome to The Magnolia and notifies the crowd of any upcoming events at the theatre which is always refreshing. Seats are comfortable and you can choose which seats... More
