Love the service of food and cocktails during a movie. They used to have older movies, but choices of new movies has improved.

The Gilson is a hidden gem! Many people don't realize that you can be served food and drinks while watching currently released movies. It is not fancy food but simple. A great night out. Also recommend the sweet Mexican restaurant Pedro's attached to the theatre...More

This venue offers a great way to enjoy a movie. You can relax with a drink and some food while watching a top-rated movie. This review received 4 stars because the menu is mediocre. The popcorn, however is delicious!

Love eating, drinking and watching a movie, all in one place, one setting! The Gilson has been around for many years. Never disappointed

Great movie, good food, reasonable price!! Get there early for big name movies....we actually prefer the upstairs; much smaller environment, but because of the closeness to the screen, it actually felt more like a big screen experience.

I always enjoy this theater. There is plenty of seating and the movies are first run. It's great to have a cocktail during the movie. The food is average but this place is really a great night out!
