“Great way to spend the afternoon”
Review of Crescent Theater

Crescent Theater
Ranked #2 of 85 things to do in Mobile
Attraction details
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We followed up on great reviews about the Crescent Theatre and want to see "Enough Said" on an afternoon while visiting in Mobile. It's a charming place with an equally charming host who does indeed greet all visitors right before the movie begins. Don't be put off by the small lobby because the main theatre is a spacious room with a large screen and stadium seating. And if you're early, you can snag one of the 10 super-comfy leather recliners that line the front row. There's even a box of blankets for those who get a little chilly during the show. Watch out for the popcorn -- tasty but greasy.

Their upgraded sound and video systems make it a pleasure to view a movie here. The crowd is interested in movies and not talking and texting!

We recently made a quick weekend getaway to Mobile and stopped by the Crescent to watch Kings of Summer after reading a few of the reviews about the theater here on TripAdvisor. We arrived about 20 minutes before show time and managed to get the comfy recliners at the front. The owner, Max, came up front and gave a few words about upcoming movies/events and told us a bit about the film we were about to see. A very nice, local couple who sat beside us told us about how they had a fundraiser to upgrade the equipment and how the place was on the verge of closing. I'm so glad they're still around! We paid $24 for two tickets and two sodas... good price in my opinion. Max also offers wine and beer and lets you know you're welcome to go grab some during the film and pay at the end of the show. We really enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back to visit.

Love the recliner seating and new sound system. They also serve beer and wine. Stadium seating with the latest in new releases and Indi films

Dropped in for a four o'clock show at this gem of a theatre. Pick up beer and wine on the way in, pay, then pay up later for drinks purchased during the movie. Cozie and well managed. Great films! We'll be back soon.
