Didn't really know what to expect from a movie theater that serves dinner but it was fantastic! The food was unbelievably good and well presented - better than many restaurants that I've tried. Contrary to a couple of reviews where people complained about the service, our experience was perfect. They do bring virtually everything you order around the same time... More

We did neither the movie or dinner experience here, coming in only for cocktails and snacks. The two barmen were friendly and chatty, and service was pretty quick. We both ordered cocktails (I had the hot 'Gimme S'mores' OMG! Delicious) We shared the wagu beef sliders which were really tasty and great as a sharer snack. Enjoyed it, certainly top... More

Poor management (especially the manager - Drew Graham), bad customer service, mediocre food. All in all, expensive & poor quality for what you receive. Just order a movie in your hotel & enjoy a nice dinner at one of Vail's great restaurants - you will be happy you didn't waste your money here!

I like the comfort and luxury of being served good food and wine while watching a movie on the big screen. You can also sit at the bar if you arrive too early before the feature opens. The service is quick and friendly. Some of my friends complain of being cold and sit in their fur coats.

We didn't expect much after a friend told us the food was just okay last year when she went. Well, they have a different chef and the food was great! Nothing better than watching a movie with my husband eating a burger and drinking a beer and me enjoying seared ahi and a glass of wine. We even enjoyed the... More

I enjoyed the movie and dinning experience with my daughter in law and 3 year old grandson. It's a nice way to spend an afternoon while other family members skied. The seats were comfortable, tables adequate and food very good. The Mac & Cheese with shrimp was delicious. The popcorn came in a large white tilt bowl and one bowl... More

Shame it's the only cinema in Vail Village. Staff are rude and useless, food is average and over priced. An elderly woman got a liquid thrown on her in a movie, i saw her after talking with the manager. Zero empathy and she was so distressed. Made me sick and that was already after I had a very poor experience.
