This a wonderful home town theater. The owner tells you about the movie. The movie selections are usual. We like to go to the Peanut Shop across the street for snacks before the movie starts. But there are plenty of F&B options at the theater too. The owner also has a large selection of DVDs you can borrow and return... More

If you want a great movie experience this is the place to go. It's right in downtown Mobile, Al with plenty of places to eat and drink before or after a movie but the movie experience is why you come. You buy your tickets right out front and there is an assortment of food and drink to purchase; wine and... More

There is nothing better than watching a movie at the Crescent. The owner speaks to the audience with interesting details about the movie prior to the start of it. Most times, there is applause at the end. The patrons don't distract with talk or using cell phones and the owner Max, is extremely friendly.

The Crescent is such a special little theater and a Mobile landmark. Anytime I have friends from out of town I always take them here! Great for dates, it feels cozy and romantic. I always appreciate the kindness of the staff. My family has even made a little tradition to go watch the Christmas movies there together. You must go... More

This is the only theatre we patronize any more, because it always has an adult clientele, with a minimum of cell phone abuse or obnoxious behavior. Oh, and you can get a beer (or wine) with which to watch the movie. Many typical art house offerings that would not be available anywhere else in south Alabama, but also some big... More

Why would anyone go to a commercialized theatre when there is the Crescent Theatre. We enjoyed "The Intern" sitting in leather recliners. Well mine didn't recline but the gentleman that runs the theatre graciously gave me a folding chair to prop my feet on. Love love love this place.

The Crescent Theater is the most unique place to see a movie in Mobile. Blockbusters to unknown art films are shown here and I've never not enjoyed anything that I've seen there! Popcorn sodas beer and wine are offered and there is even a free dvd movie library to use. Max Morey and Judson know almost everyone by name and... More
