Love this cinema. Great location, with heaps of parking. Intelligent and varied films on offer. Plenty of restaurants and bars in the area - and best of all, I can enjoy a bottle of wine in my seat!!

“Good theater, potential parking nightmare”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We have friends who swear by this theater because the price isn't crazy and you can eat your meal while you watch the movies. Unfortunately, the only time we went, parking was a mess. There must've been something going on at the opera because it took 20 minutes to drive one block to where the parking garage is located (the theater does validate), and when we got there, we couldn't get over to enter. Street parking might be an option, but it was raining and we were late, so we ended up paying $20 to valet. The theater itself wasn't very crowded and they were playing the Oscar-nominated shorts, which we really enjoyed. The food was just decent. If we try it again, we will choose a time of day when it will be less crowded on the streets.

“Best Movie Theater in Houston!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is hands-down the best movie theater in Houston! The selection of movies is great. They show mainstream movies, as well as art films and foreign films. The interior of the cinema is beautiful and classy. There are fountains, large wooden signage on each door, leather couches, nice lighting, etc.... The seats in the movie theater are set in pairs. They are very large and comfortable. I think of it like being in a first-class seat on a plane vs coach. You have a large table for food and drinks. You could choose your seat online, so you could have first dibs on the best in the house. The price for the movie is a few bucks more than your regular Regal theater, but you get a much better experience. And on top of that, you get free parking! There is a more mature audience, you could go there for dinner (they have real food), AND, you could get a glass of wine or beer to take into the theater, served to you in real glasses! Once you go here, you honestly will not want to go to another cinema in town.
