“Nice seat, lousy service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

It's a movie theater with nice seats. If you're so inclined, you can get an adult beverage. All that should be above average. EXCEPT. They promised validated parking in the building for $2.50. Twice now (including today) when I got to the automated parking exit, I had to pay full fare...$12.00. You can't back up and there's no live person to talk to. Called the manager and was told, "there's really nothing I can do." Makes for a very expensive afternoon movie with my kid. Needless to say, I will NOT be back.

“A step above your average theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

I was in downtown Orlando on business -- looking for something to do -- and stumbled upon this excellent theater. It has stadium seating, easy-chair-style chairs, and serves beer. A boring night on the road turned into an enjoyable evening.

“Great cool theater with a vintage Art Deco decor. Very unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

This theater is a great place for families and groups. It is intentionally made to look like the 30's-50's Art Deco period with wood paneling and vintage fixtures. The theaters are modern of course (with digital projection extra clear) with extra wide leather seats and armrests. You have the option of full meals and drinks as well. In the lobby there are seats, tables, highboys, and private knooks to have a pre-drink before the show. This theater is awesome and it is a shame it is not more crowded. I hope it does not close down because it is a great experience. Maybe not many people know about it as it is on Orange Avenue south in a high rise. Please visit this business. GREAT!!!
