“Once Upon A Time...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Once upon a time this was an awesome place to watch movies. We still frequent it because it's a nice location and we like the tiered seating. It's downfall is that the seats are often worn out. There is nothing worse than sitting in a blown out seat with no back support. Granted the building is used a lot, and I'm sure that is the reason for the deterioration. But the owner is a prominent member of our community, and one would think he could well afford to keep it in better stead.

“We love this theater!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

The food is very good, and they show "first run" movies. It's also a short walk back to our hotel room. Win-Win.

“Fun experience, great service, and yummy food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We visited Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Winchester last night for the first time and it won't be the last! We aren't from the area but used a Living Social deal for a night at the nearby Country Inn & Suites with a giftcard for the theater. The seating was super comfortable and our view was perfect. I love the concept of eating dinner while watching a movie and this didn't disappoint. Our server was top notch and very attentive and the food was quite good. We also loved the pre-movie cartoons and such that played while we were snacking, so much better than ads at a regular theater.

If you are in the area for the night, definitely give this a shot and you'll be pleased!

“our favorite theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Love the captain chairs and the extensive menu. The theater is stacked so there is never a head to try to see over. A really fun way to spend an evening.

“Time with our son”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Saw a movie with our son & girl friend. Good movie but I don't like to eat in the dark. But we did enjoy the film and time with our son.
