This is a small theater but offers a wonderful selection of independent films, foreign films and lesser-known movies. You probably won't be able to see the latest blockbuster here, but you can see wonderful movies that you can't see in other theaters. While the seats...More

Many of the best movies are shown here! I saw the Oscar nominated “Live Action Short Films” this time. They were great! Comfortable Regal theatre! Manuel’s North is in the same parking lot and also worth a trip!

When I visit the city this seems to be the only movie theatre showing something worthwhile seeing.....foreign films, opera, independent movies that you cannot find elsewhere. I really appreciate finding something different....besides the usual adolescent foolishness of Marvel...More

In spite of the theater being dated, it is well kept, bathrooms clean, etc. We love the off beat movies, and the staff is very friendly. Relaxing atmosphere, love it!

Overpriced, Outdated and there are definitely better theaters for the same money. Unacceptable experience.

Nothing really special about this theater. Located in a fairly congested area, but had adequate parking. Seats were small and not particularly comfortable. Thought the prices were a little higher than the Georgetown and Round Rock theaters. Two Seniors at an weekday matinee ran $19+...More

Don't waste your time on old theaters like this one. We paid the premium price to see a 3D movie and it was not worth it!
