This is a hidden gem in the middle of Centro. This small theater have provided us with hours of entertainment. For a little over a hundred pesos you get a drink....a margarita if you desire....a bag of popcorn and a movie either in English or with English subtitles. They run two different movies in two of the cutest little theater... More

We caught up on the oscar winning movies we missed at home. Very reasonable plus admission includes an assigned seat, a drink and popcorn. Get there early for seats since the theaters are small.

Well run theater with great movies. Reserve seats a few days ahead of time and come early for your showing (most of the customers are elderly, not too nimble of foot and don't really speak Spanish so it takes a bit of time for the staff to get everyone their complimentary drink).

Tiny, quaint, and intimate only holds about 22 people, serves pop corn - reserve and buy your seats ahead to avoid a sold out situation

As we were walking into the city center, we passed this venue, which had not opened yet. There was a line of Gringos, so we asked why they were lining up. Once educated, we returned here to see two currently running, Oscar contending movies. The place is great with the huge courtyard to sit and relax before the movie. Price... More

the place looks really cool, and it was the only place en san miguel that had the movie we wanted, but the guy who owns it was incredibly rude and weird. TL:DR: he didn't let us make a reservation two days in a row, the whole story: We came at 8:17 (2 minutes after the start of the movie), he... More

After a long day of walking around, both my mother and I were ready to relax. So going to the theater was a treat. We bought tickets in advance, which I recommend. As noted by others, price includes a drink and a bag of popcorn. The seats are comfortable (about 25 of them). Before the film we relaxed in front... More

I have been to this theater several times and have always enjoyed the movies, but have sometimes had unpleasant interactions with the woman at the front desk who takes your money, gives you the popcorn and drink, turns on the film, etc. She seems to enjoy nudging customers, and in general acts like you are doing her a favor by...

My husband and I showed up ten minutes before the posted time for a movie last night. The doors were closed, so my husband used the knocker to knock on the door (isn't that what knockers are for?). The woman came out and yelled at us for using the knocker, and told us that the theater was closed. We are... More
