Violet Crown Cinema

Attraction details

Buy your tickets online, choose your seats when you purchase your tickets. Park for free in the adjacent parking garage when you get your ticket stamped at the theater. Arrive early and sit in the restaurant area of the the theater and order a snack and an alcoholic beverage. They will call you when it is time for your seating and you can take food into the theater. The seats are comfortable, the food is pretty good and the atmosphere is relaxing, kind of like Austin.

I love Alamo Drafthouse but was pleasantly surprised at how much more upscale this theatre is. The Violet is gorgeous architecture, decent food, good drinks and comfy seating. Great for date nights and seeing indies.

is what my wife said after an evening at the Violet Crown Cinema. We enjoyed a couple of choice wines, some appetizers, comfortable cinema seats, the movie Bernie and the overall ambiance of this place. It is truly an "Austin" experience right in the heart of downtown. After the movie, we enjoyed strolling the streets of downtown Austin and watching people. We will definitely return.

The Violet Crown (so named because Austin, in the right sort of setting sun, has a violet aura!) is a great place to watch a movie because it's a small place, the seats are reclining and comfortable, tasty - but expensive - snacks are available, and all seats - buy tix online - are reserved! Free parking at AMLI but if this is your first visit to V.C. there are lots of AMLIs so be careful to pick one near the theater.

We went to see Bernie; great experience in this cozy, cool, comfortable Movie Theatre. They have very few seats; therefore it's a must to buy ticket (numbered) in advance in their HP. Good bar in a nice atmosphere.
