My husband and I saw "Sully" at the Crescent Theater last week, and it was a terrific experience. The movie was great, but the theater itself is really marvelous. Lots of drink and snack options, huge comfortable recliners (in the front two rows -- get there early to snag one) and even blankets. The screen resolution and sound were great.... More

The Crescent is definitely my favorite theater in Mobile. Its nice to watch a movie in a small single screen theater without a bunch of teenagers around and general chaos. The staff are super friendly and they always give you a personal introduction before your movie starts. They have wine and beer for purchase as well as various other drinks,... More

This is a fantastic movie theater. It is a cozy place that seat 90ish folks. The best thing about the theater is the proprietor, Max Morey. He is a warm, inviting person that introduces every film. He selects wonderful films that are often not shown in the big box places. Wine and beer is available. To check for what film... More

This theater is located on Dauphin Street in downtown Mobile. The lobby is definitely no frills. Inside the theater is a small auditorium with each row of seats about six inches or so above the one in front. The view of the screen is good from anywhere. The seats are nothing special but comfortable. There are a few lounge chairs... More

We came to Mobile from Panama City Beach specifically to see the Beatles documentary. The man working was enthusiastic about the Beatles and the film which made the experience slightly more fun. The theater itself is older and small, but very nice, with a row and a half of large recliners in the front and stadium seating behind them. Refreshments... More

Small intimate venue for catching a movie with friends! The owners are welcoming, the drinks are cold, and the recliners down front add to the experience.

Nice place to visit. The attention of the employee is great. See the itinerary of the movies. You can consume alcoholic beverages.

My husband and I went for the first time last weekend to see Jason Bourne. I have to say, meeting Max (owner) was a highlight of going. He is so nice and a delight to talk to. Now to the theater, WOW! It is has just one screen, recliners down front, (have to get there early), the floor is clean,... More

I still haven't figured out how to make it there early enough to sit in a recliner. The first time I came, we made it! It was wonderful! Love how they work on the honor system and you can just go get your beer/wine and pay afterward. Who doesn't like to drink beer with their movie? Love this place and... More
