My husband and I found ourselves in the Dallas, Texas area with a few hours to kill and decided to see a movie. Unfortunately, the one we wanted to see was an independent film and was showing only at this theater. It's nestled in the downtown area of Dallas in the West Village shopping Center surrounded by plentiful designer shops... More

One of our regular spots but Now with reserved seats. This delays the ticket process with no improvement in outcome. Stood longer in line while people pick their seats and people who've pre-ordered seats have to find their ticket order. I don't get it yet. But maybe I'm slow.

Great theater where you can reserve seats and their location. Comfy leather chairs and good sized screen and sound. Didn't like the guy behind me who kept kicking the back of my chair till I told him to stop. Will go again if the movie I want to see is playing.

We used to go to this theater all the time. But now you have to reserve your seat you want in advance. We always like to get to a theater early so we can choose seats we like, but now you have to pick it before you get in the theater. We went to a movie that was quite full... More

The Magnolia is an excellent Art/Indie/Foreign Film Movie House and I would rate it higher if it weren't for its terrible lack of parking. It is located in one of those residential, retail, mixed use developments with very limited angled in parking street level in front of the business and limited inside garage parking around the corner, but with no...

As someone who lives in Uptown I love the fact that I can walk to this movie theater. Even better, I can have a few drinks before and after the movie and not have to worry about getting home. As far as movie theaters go this one seems particularly clean. It doesn't play all the standard movies that are in... More

Has the best new movies that are not at the Mall theaters. We love going to the West Village where the Magnolia is located. Lots of action, fun stores and restaurants.

This is a great theatre in a nice neighborhood. If you want dinner and or a drink and an artsy movie this is your place. There is a great wine bar next door if you'd like to try a flight of whites or reds before the movie. Mexican and Italian food abounds in this area.

I really love the location of this theatre. The seats aren't the most comfortable, but the little shopping/entertainment area is great. I have been here 3 times in the last few months for matinees, and I like it every time. Prices are about average for a movie and they have a good little diner-ish area there, too. I usually eat...

This theater usually shows independant films (that i dont get into) but when they do show a mainstream release I love to visit...The theater is very nice, clean and mostly a 30+ age crowd so if your wanting to avoid the middle/high school kids go to this theater. Has a full bar inside the theater and over a dozen restaurants... More
