Not sure how many seats were in the particular theater we were in. It was not too cold. It appears that most seats were good seats. We sat in the second section near the center. We had a good view, comfortable seats and the sound was good. There was a bar across from the concessions. The bartender was not able... More

The theater is conveniently located in the Uptown area of Dallas. Garage parking is very close by. Leather seats are very comfortable. Sound system is excellent.

We really loved catching a movie in this cinema. We were just passing through Dallas on the way home and happened upon this place - a great place to watch a movie. Prices were good and popcorn spectacular.

Such a fun place to go to view a movie. The bar is on the same movie level and you can take your drink in hand to watch the show. The theater is more reasonable than the mall AMC, very clean, excellent popcorn and comfortable seating.

I love my neighborhood theater! It is located in the heart of West Village in Uptown Dallas, which is conveniently surrounded by restaurants and boutiques. After an afternoon of shopping or dinner/ date night, you can walk up to the Magnolia Theater for a cozy movie showing. Assigned seating is an option, but not a requirement. They also have a...

Favourite place to see a movie. Boutique theatre with nice bar and great drinks! Really enjoy escaping reality and experiencing a movie here. Fairly priced and food is available.

Being a Landmark Theatre, we assumed it would be a historic building but discovered that instead it is like the other half of their theatres - independent and fun but very modern. That said it was pretty much like any other urban theatre where you enter and buy tickets on the first floor before taking the escalator up to the... More

My wife and I dropped by the Magnolia Theater due to the fact we had three hours to kill before our dinner appointment at Truluck's. It is an old-style theater with the admissions area downstairs and the concession area and theaters upstairs. The layout was really neat and reminded me of the good ole days of Hollywood. We were able... More

We went here to see a little known movie. They play small releases and foreign films. A beautiful theatre with plenty of seating. In a pedestrian mall with restaurants all around. Has a bar and drinks can go into the theatre. Comfortable seating. parking is free in the West garage.
