This place is covered in signs that promote the popcorn and say no ticket is required for purchase but apparently that doesn't apply to hot dogs. I just was told that I couldn't buy one without a ticket.

Saw Aquaman here - great sound for such a big movie. And...be sure and get the chocolate popcorn. Our daughter likes to mix it half and half with the regular and add butter.

If I'm going to catch a big blockbuster then I want a theater experience to match it. Seattle has a handful of really awesome theater experiences and Cinerama is right at the top. Just don't order pop as Seattle taxes sugared soda for the sake...More

Excellent Cinema with huge screen, comfy seats and amazing sound. They show only one movie at the time as there is only one auditorium inside the cinema. They have chocolate popcorn and it was delicious. Next time in Seattle will visit again.

Every time I'm in Seattle I make it a point to catch a movie at Cinerama. Not only is it a great venue for action movies, but there is nothing better than the chocolate popcorn that they sell there!

Paul Allen’s Cinerama plays the greatest films, both new and old, classics and favorites. They do retrospectives and festivals, and the snacks are excellent!

2nd time visiting the Cinerama. Love it! We watched the Oceans 8 and had a mix bag of chocolate popcorn. Go online to purchase your tickets..so much faster and you get to select your seats. Parking nearby could be difficult. I highly recommend the Cinerama...More

The first row of the balcony has a railing that is distracting from your view.
