I love this theater. I've been going to $5 movie day on Tuesdays (they also have it on Sundays) for years now

It is a single line, instead of multiple lines, which can get confusing. Parking is available in the garage across the street. You do have to pay, but the... More

A movie multiplex with stadium seating, the venue features first-run Hollywood features. Parking is ample across the street, but beware--it closes down before theatres and restaurants, leaving visitors fuming--and on foot until tomorow

We were very satisfied with our mid-day movie. We seen one of the newly released box office hits in the comforts of home. The chairs a 'spring-loaded' partial reline that allows you to sit back and relax as you view your long awaited newly released box office hit. Very clean. You know where you feet do not stick to the... More

No one was in the theater. The seats were comfortable. We had our popcorn refilled and enjoyed a great matinee. We also hit up the photo booth on the way out. Fun times. We'll be back.

Great place for a date with a lovely lady. Nice clean venue with very close adjacent parking. Validation from the theater is good. In close proximity of great dining, drinks, music and even dancing. Great place to start the evening with much close by to close it out.

The theater is very nice and the location is great. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of parking is available. I loved the popcorn. Can't watch a movie without excellent popcorn.

There's also a bar nearby, safari themed, that was incredible. Oakland is so underrated. I think I liked it more than San Francisco! Great cinema, cheap tickets, excellent restaurants nearby.

Tolerable but not the best theater in the Bay Area. Auditoriums are okay, but the crowd can be a bit rough. With all the theaters in the East Bay there's no reason to go out of your way to go to this theater.

Stopped going here as the crowd is often rough and the theater and lobby areas become trashed. Too bad because the location is good.
