    Cheap indy and "prestige" movies! Refillable large popcorns and sodas! A favorite during awards season when you can watch the Golden Globes and Oscars on the big screen for $10.

    On Saturdays they do Popcorn Palace at 10am. $10 for a great (usually older) kids-ish movie, popcorn, and a drink. It's a blast!

    it's the perfect little hometown theater, but it's in the city. the 5 muni bus from the north edge of golden gate park will get you back downtown.

    My friend wants everyone to know they have new seats since the last time he was here. I want everyone to know the last movie he saw here was The Blind Side.

    Great staff, good prices, but disgusting bathroom. If they could keep that clean, 100% score.

    I have a feeling I'm only at this movie because Snow Patrol was used in the trailer.
