Parking here is simple and free if you follow instructions on the Violet Crown’s phone recording. You park in the garage and *presto* walk past the movie sign and you are at the theater, which serves decent food and drinks. It took ten minutes to...More

I just love this place. Although located in downtown Austin parking is free with a movie ticket. The movies are first run. Good intimate place for a show. Good seats and you can reserve seats online. The snacks are good and the staff is friendly.

The experience is right up there with Alamo Drafthouse, possibly better. The dining area has a bar, indoor seating, and outdoor seating. The theater seats are wonderfully comfortable. I hope to return with my girlfriend for a nice date. Give it a shot!

A cool concept for a theatre but a few things could make this place better. The food was ok but very small portions for the money. I would just suggest going to eat somewhere else and them coming here for drinks/snacks. I've been to other...More
