“My favorite place to watch a movie”

AMC Dine-in Houston 8
Ranked #20 of 113 Fun & Games in Houston
Attraction details
Reviewed July 23, 2013

If you're like me, you're tired of going to a movie theater and having to deal with loud, obnoxious people, kids or adults kicking the back of your chair and all the other unpleasantness that make watching a movie in the theater such a pain. Enter Sundance Cinema. Easily the finest movie going experience around, they really take pride in what they do. When you purchase tickets (either online or at the box office) you get to reserve your seats. No more waiting in line before they seat you to grab a seat, or worry about showing up a few minutes before the start time only to find there's nothing left. But even before you get into the theaters you can enjoy some of the finest craft beers, snacks and sandwiches I've ever had at the movies. You are also allowed to bring your beer/alcoholic beverages into the theater! What a joy. Sundance usually specializes in Independent or limited release films, but will also show a big blockbuster when it's warranted (I saw Monsters University as well as Despicable Me 2 here). If you want to enjoy a movie but not stress about the rest, come here!

Great seats. Good parking under the venue....elevator takes you almost to the front door (when it is working). Otherwise just a few steps. Excellent food and drinks. Easy reservations of your favotite seats online. What is not to like?

This movie theater is nice to go to because it has better food than most theaters, and offers alcoholic beverages to enjoy while watching a flick, but it is definitely lacking something. The food offerings are a bit disjointed, ranging from pizzas to hummus to lots of pastries and deserts. There should be more consistency or a theme to the menu, with the addition of more meatless or seafood items. The staff at the bar and the concession stands were very disorganized, and didn't seem to know what was going on when you asked them questions, something that should not be an issue if you are paying a higher price for the movie ticket than at a regular theater where that kind of service is usually the norm. We will definitely be back, and maybe we just caught the people who work there on a bad day, but I think this concept needs a little work before I would recommend it to others.

Best movie theater I have been to and definitely worth the extra money. Have been here about 5 times and each time has been a great experience. I always get there about 45 minutes early and get a beer and the Mediterranean platter. We have never had a movie here been interrupted by a screaming child or noisy teenage couple.

While it is downtown and a bit out of the way, there are always first run as well as unusual movies. The best feature is you can reserve your seat in advance and unlike some other competitors, they reimburse you for parking. Great deal.
