    Ok, again such good programming etc. But last two showings I've gone to at 10pm have been uncomfortably warm, lets just say my teabags were steeping. Not cute. Check the thermostat.

    Parking is not optimal so get there early and grab a drink at Highball as you let traffic get out of the parking lot after a movie.

    Usually amazing overall experience, great movies, great food and drink, but would it kill you Alamo, to buy the finer grain sandpaper to use in the toilet paper dispenser? Unwittingly exfoli_assed

    Awesome revamp of the old theater. Went there for a company even and we all received super quick and attentive service. Parking was tough but that's temporary.

    Free parking in the nearby garage. Just be warned that it's a bit tight in there. And busy.

    Cinema, Austin-style. This Sixth Street institution is notorious for its gloriously silly special screenings, such as The Big Lebowski and Wayne’s World quote-a-longs, complete with comedy props. Read more

    The green chili Mac and cheese is great but very spicy, which wouldn't be a "but" except that its dark & you can't see what you're eating & there's a giant pile of roasted green chilies.

    This place is a treat anytime, but check it out when big movies are coming out. They usually have special menu items that have to do with the movie, like butterbeer for Harry Potter.
