I've been going to the Sundance Kabuki for many years, preferring it over other theatres because of its location, services, cleanliness, lack of commercials, excellent choice of films, ability to reserve seats online...and more. Well, now that it has become an AMC theatre, you can...More

Goodbye independent Sundance Theater, it's been great with you. Don't expect to find any more independent films shown here now they're all commercial films from big studios. The concession lounge no longer offers gourmet food and beverage.

The Sundance Kabuki Cinema is in a fun part of town and the experience is the same. You can grab a quick drink at the bar if you're 21+ and settle in with some snacks to your reserved seats. This is great for a date...More

I'm not sure why it has this name because it isn't very Asian looking. It is a fine place to look at movies.

It's clean, the food is good, and its an experience geared towards adults especially if you sit in the balcony or the bar areas. Reserved seating is ideal. We're both over 6' tall and find the seating to be comfortable at our height.

They have a really good concession stand and a nice bistro that serves alcohol. Most auditoriums are quite small, so depending on which film you are going to see or in which auditorium it'll be shown, the overall experience can be very underwhelming. You can...More

I went to see a movie here and nearly froze to death. The coldest I have ever been at a movie theatre. In addition, a man sat down next to me who was clearly drunk yet kept drinking throughout the movie. It was disgusting but...More

I had never been to a cinema in SF but wound up coming here twice. The cream soda is INSANELY good! Other than that, the popcorn is pretty standard. The tickets to a film are $14.50 which is quite a bit more than what I...More

They have a good lineup of indie, foreign and art films at the Kabuki; it's readily accessibly to public transit (the 22 and 38 buses in particular); and they have a couple of bars. And those bars have happy hours. While it's nice that you...More

Pleasant reserve seating. Basic drama audio sufficient. Screen size supports same. Thirty dollars bottle beer & glass wine makes one an extra in movie holdup.
