Foursquare Tips

  • 2010 Best of Houston Winner: Best Film Series: Regular midnight screenings run the gamut, with action flicks, classics, thrillers and the ever-popular The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
  • Free popcorn and sodas with big combos. 10$ ticket. Old fashion theatre.
  • Every movie theater should have a bar.
  • Moviegoers with savoir-faire can catch an independent or foreign flick at this theater, built in 1939.The downstairs theater is grandiose and baroque, all heavy red-velvet curtains, patterned carp
  • Best movie theater in Houston. Excellent film selections for Friday and Saturday midnight shows.
  • Great place... drinks & movies.
  • Love this retro theatre...but the seats are uncomfortable and not good for cuddling...
  • Ask for a tour of the projector room. Very neat.
  • The doors to the men's bathroom sound like a Brontosaurus. Watch out!
  • show student id for discount!
  • Happy Hour ALL DAY & NIGHT, Monday - Thursday (at the upstairs bar)
  • Weekend old school movies and monthly Rocky horror show
  • Best little theater in Houston.
  • Very quaint movie theater. Well preserved and cute atmosphere. Acoustics leave something to be desired. Not all speakers were on and movie playing next door was too loud and seeped through the walls.
  • Don't wait in line to get in the movie, go upstairs and order a drink. That makes the wait much more enjoyable.
  • Best place in Houston to be stood up...
  • Can't disagree with drinking + great film
  • Please NEVER tear down this place!
  • See what's playing on the downstairs screen. Avoid the two upstairs screens-- the cramped quarters were carved out of the balcony and share a common wall.
  • Sit in the third to last row. the cushions are amazing!
