We treated ourself to a movie at Reel Mountain Theater last weekend. There are several theaters playing at the same time (either 3 or 4), and we were there for the 1:15 show. The walls are a tad thin; we could hear the previews from the other movie before ours began. Once our movie began, we didn't hear anything from... More

My husband and I always take the time to go and see several movies while we are in Estes Park. It is a nice theater, has comfy seats, and friendly employees. Yes, it is a small town theater, but it is still nice! We enjoy watching a movie there every year.

Over Christmas break we always take in a movie at the Reel. I'm sure it's expensive for the locals - but coming from California we think it's a good deal. It's only a few theaters, but we've always enjoyed our visits.

Took four kids to see Turbo. We were supposed to go hiking, but a huge downpour of rain kept us from that. This theater reminds me of a small town theater. Small, needs updates, average service, and less expensive than the massive big town movieplexes. It was clean.

This theater is pretty good for a small town. The place is clean, friendly, and the visual and sound quality is good. However, the parking lot is small and can be difficult to navigate through. Overall, a good movie viewing experience.

There are always rain showers in Estes which takes your straight to the theater for a good movie and popcorn.

We were there recently and saw Monsters University with our son. What a nice theater it is. Very modern and the lines were very fast. It was something nice to do while we waited for the rain to stop.

We decided to take in a movie to hopefully get out of the heat since our VRBO rental home didn't have air conditioning. It's June 12, 2013 and it is 83 outside. So the first thing I ask the woman taking the money for the movie tickets is, "does this theater have air conditioning?" She looks me right in the... More

We went to a show before 5:00 and only had to pay $7/person. Senior rate anytime is $7.25. Two tickets, a litre bottle of water, and nachos....the 'date' cost us about $21. Very reasonable, compared to our home theatre. Seats are comfortable have cup holders.
