“Not a great place to see a movie”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I suggest you arrive at least 30 minutes in advance. Even then we were in the 2nd row. The seating is very limited. While they have an extensive menu you must order from your seat through a server. Of course they automatically add on the gratuity - regardless of the fact that the service was medicore!

“New Release Movies, $2 matinee beers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

What a great concept--watching new movies while having beer and burgers! At the matinee showings (noon) beers are $2. Very roomy seating with your own table to lean your elbows on. Courteous and efficient servers. Food was good, reasonably priced, and came promptly. Theatre is spotlessly clean, as are the washrooms. We plan to go back! The building itself is very 1920's Florida salmon colour and charming. Parking underneath and beside. At the south end of Estero Island. Good activity for a rainy day, or a hot day, or any day!
Pet peeve: someone left their cell phone on and it rang three times during the most solemn parts of Lincoln. Maybe they could make an announcement about cell phone/theatre etiquette?

“Enjoyable and different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This theater was within walking distance of the condo. It was fun to be able to select from an actual menu as we watched the movie. It provided a very pleasant afternoon change of pace.

“fun place to see a movie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This is a great place to see a movie while visiting the beach [rainy days or evenings]. Don't eat before you go! This is a special movie experience with servers who take your order from a good menu and even offer adult drinks. The seats have college-like fold-out tables for the food. Fun movie night.
