“Fun night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I finally got a chance to check this place out yesterday and this new theatre is a great addition to downtown Hartford. I like the idea of a single line for both concessions and tickets as well as the bar and bistro right in the complex. There is also plenty of parking in the adjoining garage. The theatres themselves are a good size with comfortable seating. If you are looking for a good place for a "date night" or just a nice place to check out a movie you should consider this place.

“Love the Concept, Seems Like a Bumpy Start”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I love the concept of dinner and a movie in downtown Hartford and I've been to this venue three times. Movie viewing is comfortable, the parking is easy (you DO get a partial validation if you are in the garage) and the restaurant is convenient. However, once the concession stand was out of several soda options and the Bistro service was very slow. I've heard others remark the same so I'm hoping that management works out the kinks.

“Pleasant surprise in downtown Hartford”

Love the new Spotlight Theater on Front Street in Hartford. One line for ticket and food is very convenient. Clean, modern, nice facility. Very comfy seats. Convenient and ample parking. Will definitely go again.

“Upscale theater, on it's way to being Hartford's Classy theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

It's nice to be in a theater with an upscale atmosphere. Across from the new downtown Marriott and convention center, with parking at most $2 in the adjacent garage with theater ticket, the smaller sized theaters with more comfortable seats is where I now prefer to view movies. Sound and screen are excellent. Don't expect huge buckets of popcorn, but do come for a nice dinner in the bistro before or after the show. Bring your glass of wine or white Russian into the theater with you, then relax and enjoy!

“Comfortable Movie Theater; Good Happy Hour at Front Street Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

My friend and I have been to this movie theater twice. Both times we have a good experience. No lines to get tickets. Most comfortable stadium seats with plenty of room. Sound and picture quality is excellent. A little tricky at first to find auditoriums since two are on one side of the building and two are around the corner. Restroom also a bit hard to find.

We had happy hour at the Front Street Bistro adjacent to the theater lobby. Appetizers were a good value. Salmon burger sliders only $3.00. for two. Turkey burger sliders also $3.00 for two. Buffalo chicken fritters $4.00 for four. Beer drafts were $3.00. We felt it was a good value.

Would definitely go again.
