“Movie and a Dinner”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

The Bridge Street complex is a charming shopping district not far from our home. We opted to catch a movie as husband and wife sans children tonight for her birthday. We read reviews that this place was a luxury theater if one opted to pay extra and sit in the balcony. We paid $22 and saw "Riddick" tonight. While the movie wasn't that good, the theater certainly ranks among the nicest we've been to. We purchased our tickets down stairs before climbing upwards to the bar where we bought a $5 bottle of water. It's a full bar with a large variety of wines available on top of the other adult beverages and there appears to be a restaurant downstairs too. I should mention that when buying your tickets you get to use the touchscreen to select your seats before the staff prints out your tickets. The balcony seating is far more comfortable than regular theater seats, they appear to be love seats split in two with an arm rest that raises/lowers as you wish. You get the feel of looking down on the movie instead of the usual looking up. If you've never experienced anything like this before then you really must, adults only upstairs however. We will certainly be doing date night here from now on. We didn't get snacks but you can assume the price will be comparable to other theaters.

“Excellent Movie With Food Facilities”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The Monaco Pictures theater at Bridge Street is a little more than just a movie. It has a full restaurant with a decent menu inside its doors and also a choice of two areas to watch the latest movies. The sort of VIP area costs more and you sit in a balcony area but it is still close to the screen. You can carry your drinks and food with you to your seat and enjoy a drink or whatever while you watch the movie. I believe that some thought went into the operation of this movie house. The seats are also very comfortable and the lobby is very spacious. I do recommend this movie for anyone at any age. The kids will enjoy it also. It is kind of a fun facility. The only downside is that you might have a problem finding a parking space at peak movie times. There are spaces available but you need to come early because the parking lot is behind the movie building in the shopping center area.

“Favorite Movie Theater”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I love going to the movies at Monaco. My husband and I like to go to the 21 and up movie theater. The chairs are so comfortable and the balcony setting allows for the most perfect seats in all the theater. This is the movie theater to go to for the perfect movie experience.

“Movies Moved into the IT Age”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Movies tickets and seating can be selected on line so you know exactly where you are going to sit when you get there. There is also the Prive experience for adults who can enjoy drinks and dinner while enjoying dinner. Truly a first class experience!

“Great theatre”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Monaco is a great theatre. You can buy your tickets in advance and even select your seats. My husband is very tall so it is helpful when we can select the seats with no seats in front. My favorite theatre in Huntsville. They serve snacks, meals, and even wine.
