    Cool staff. Great snacks includes the Crab Pretzel. Beer & wine available. Great movie selection. It costs 11 bucks to park in the garage--look for metered (and free after hours) spaces along 11th St.

    One of the best kept secrets in the nations capitol, showing first-run independent and foreign films, along with midnight screenings of the Rocky Horror Picture Show there's always something to watch!

    Great theater. They serve alcohol with a one drink limit but they'll pour two drinks into a single cup. Make sure you consider how badly you don't want to miss parts of your movie for bathroom breaks.

    One of the best places to watch great films like Pariah and The Iron Lady is Landmark. Saw Pariah last week and The Iron Lady yesterday. Both were AMAZING.

    No cell service once you go down the escalator where the theatres are. Grab a wine or beer to drink while you watch!

    The best and largest indie theater downtown. If you're lucky you'll even get a real live person introducing the movie for you before it starts.

    The midnight movies on Fridays and Saturdays are great, even if the people will give you flashbacks to college D&D parties in the quad.

    Small theater, so buy ahead of time if you can. No cel phone service downstairs either. Get a class of wine to enjoy with your indie film :)

    The popcorn is a must try. Remember to ask for the butter to be layered.

    You can buy two beers at a time and have them put it in one big cup to circumvent the one beverage per ID rule. Also, ask for the beer of the month.

    Clean, reasonably priced alch + it's nice and chilly inside! Downside: Chair arms in the theater #5 are immobile. Not sure if the rest are like that.

    It's $22 to park in the garage long enough to see a matinee. Take the metro. (They also serve beer & wine, so all the more reason not to drive!)

    Some of the rooms are quite small, so arrive early so you aren't sat in the front rows looking up the whole time.
