This is a iconic part of North City in Shoreline. Prices are the best as well as the freshly popped popcorn. No reheated popped popcorn in this place. The staff are quirky sometime which makes this a gem. It's not fancy by any means but...More

I grew up in the neighborhood and it’s still a nice theater at a very good price. Recent movies, beer, and the best popcorn around. Big change I noticed were the new comfortable seats.

Convenient, comfortable, reasonably priced, and they play popular movies. The popcorn is good and there is parking. I recommend it.

My only real complaint is the inconsiderate patrons. Repeatedly bumping or kicking your seat distracting you from the movie, crumbling papers and boxes (I can't imagine how much they ate) and this was the adults in the crowd.

The Crest has been an institution in the neighborhood for years. As a kid I remember driving out there from our house near the U-District. It seemed so far away. Now that I live in the area I laugh at that thought. Great movies at...More

My family and I love the Crest for our movie going pleasure. Great price, fresh popcorn with real butter and hot chocolate on a cold night. Worth every penny.
