“Great Decor, Service and Film Selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We loved the decor, it's a classic, old-school theatre staffed by friendly people and had a great film selection (we watched Grand Budapest Hotel...I can recommend that too!)

“Going back in time :-)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

I've been to the Tivoli several times in my lifetime. I LOVE that this theater shows movies that you might not get to see on the big screen, usually. But what I love the most is that once you walk through their doors, you feel like you're back in the day of the silver screen. Like maybe when "Gone With The Wind" was originally shown? The owners of the Tivoli display movie memorabilia from the early days of picture shows. The decor is beautiful.

The only thing that I was a little disappointed with this time was that it seems to be not kept up. Like maybe the seats inside the theater room we were in dated back to the 90's? It seemed a little dirty in this room too, not to mention worn.

I will definitely go again. In fact, I brought my daughter and her friends to a midnight movie and I didn't think they were impressed. Just this week, they wanted me to take them to the Tivoli again... I guess they have a new generation of life long customers! lol

This is definitely an movie experience that you won't want to miss if you find yourself in the U City Loop :-)

“Unique Classic Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

We visited this theater while staying at Moonrise Hotel on the Del Mar loop. We arrived a day early for a wedding and had the evening free and so decided on a whim to visit an opening night showing of an Indy flick out of the UK. Great show, and great theater! With only 3 screens, the other two were playing mainstream movies. We are so glad we decided to visit, as this place had great ambiance. The only minor inconvenience was seat height, but the resolution on the screen was great. Refreshments (I had gelato) were excellent as well.
