The theater district in downtown Houston is home to a number of great venues such as the Alley Theater and Theater Under the Stars at the Hobby Center. The Sundance Cinema adds another element into the mix, located at the Bayou Place center which was formerly the Angelika Film Center. They do refund you for parking (just have your ticket)... More

When there is nothing to do there is always something intresting to watch in Sundance Cinema. From forgien films to big block busters there is always something that might catch your eye. The parking is $10, but they refund them to you if you show them your garage ticket. Concessions are a little pricy, but I think it's always better... More

Really cool spot to see a movie. Good food other than just popcorn. Seats very comfy Gotta like a theater you can bring your own wine to

One of my favorite movie theatres in town, but I must confess that the structure is not so good. they could replace some chairs and also upgrade screens technology. Bar prices are high. Staff is super friendly.

We go to Sundance 3-4 times a year for date nights. It's a great concept but could use a few improvements. The website to start is not intuitive or user friendly. Being able to select seats though is a great feature. The $7 garage parking is validated which is good as long as there isn't a theater event going on.... More

I love the fact that you can choose your seat, enjoy food/drink while you're watching the movie, and you get reimbursed for parking. :-) Not a lot of kids that attend movies here, and the audience is polite, i.e., not talking or using cell phones during the movie. Decent selection of wine/beer, popcorn has real butter!

don't spend the extra $$ here for this theatre. tickets more than the theatre near me & consessions were top dollar too. maybe they are catering to the people with lots of extra cash who want to overpay for tickets & food??

You are allowed to order food and beverages, including alcohol and take to your seat. Seats are selected before you enter theatre. This is a downtown location. I have never seen children here which is a plus on date night. Love the selection of films. Lots of indie as well as popular films!!

Everything about this theater and it's service and surroundings is very nice. The only negative I can think of is the hassle of parking, but at least when you park underground the theater will reimburse your cost. So it is free to park - although you must pay first and then get your money back. Other than that, it is... More

Very nice facility. Rugged like you're at the Sundance Ski Lodge. Good food options. Found they had BIG RED soda and many other options. Easy to get to. Good movie selection of Independent films along with major movie releases. Would definitely go back again and again.
