“Lazy Boys in the front row!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Where else can you go to a movie and recline in a lazy boy chair in the front row and sip on a cold beer? Max, the owner, is a great guy and knows movies inside and out. This is a smaller theater and you will need to come early to get a recliner. The Crescent recently upgraded to the full digital movie format. Come by and talk to max about upcoming movies. His reviews are spot on.

“Should have waited!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I was so excited about this place that I wrote my review just before the movie started. Then, when the owner came to the front to tell us about the movie he said we were the first audience watching it on his new Blu-Ray and that the sound and picture would be better. It was!! I wear hearing aids and had no trouble hearing it and the picture was fantastic!

“Catch the movies that didn't come to your local theatre”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Small theatre. Intimate setting. They have the movies that don't make it to the local theatres. Get out of mainstream and see something that will make you think.

“Crescent theatre”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

What a cool place! It's an old time movie theater with limited seating, but they show many movies you won't see anywhere else around Mobile, as well as new, mainstream flicks. Wonderful staff! Nice to be able to have a glass of wine along with the usual movie fare, too.

“Interesting place”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

I went to see Rocky Horror Show for the first time.. it was interesting. But it definitely made for a memory. It's clean, and you can drink! Also, it's not badly priced.
