    There is a secret bar (less crowded) on the second floor!

    A place you can get alcohol and assigned seats. Don't forget your ID though!

    Most folks respect the reserved seating assignments. Have an adult beverage upstairs.

    nice theater, disgusting bathrooms

    The chicken fingers come with crudités, which are SUPER AWKWARD to eat during a movie. Avoid. Oh also, drink the movie themed cocktails!

  • Allison Y.

    Love the comfy seats. Get tix early to reserve the best ones (aka not the ones all the way to the left)

    The Sakura Room, located on the Lobby Level, is the hotel’s junior ballroom. This space is notable for its shoji-coffered ceiling and view of the Summer Garden through a floor-to-ceiling window.

    If you are an out-of-towner and want to go on a holiday, you had better get your tickets in advance online. Best theater I've ever been to. Make sure you get the right screen, not all have drinks.

    A rather luxurious theater in SF

    The best theater with the most comfortable seats. Feels like an elevated movie-going experience. Perfect theater for a date night.

  • Khoa M.

    The only theater you should see a movie at in San Francisco. Pick your own seat and get a drink dilivered to you!

    There is a stamp machine for parking validation near the entrance.

    Jacob Gyllenstierna · December 30, 2014

    They don't really shut the lights off completely during a movie. Not sure it's a good thing. Hot dogs are disastrous.

    Andrey Klen · December 20, 2014
  • Rick M.

    Pretty nice theater, love the assigned seating and booze :)

    Rick Motzko · December 16, 2014

    Relaxing movies with the booze!

    Go to a movie in the balcony. Great seating and drinks.

    Caitlin Garlow · November 29, 2014
  • Ashley M.

    The 21+ cinema is a super fun way to unwind and sip some cocktails while you watch your movie.

    Ashley Miller · November 24, 2014
  • Clay M.

    Movie-themed cocktails and meals you can eat while watching a variety of current films in comfy seats.

    Clay Miller · November 24, 2014
  • Jon L.

    great place to visit if you plan to sit for a few hours.

    Jon Li · November 23, 2014
  • Ashley M.

    Sneak booze into the theater if you're on the right floor, the bar is too expensive and the wine too subpar.

    Ashley Mowrey · November 21, 2014
  • Jeffrey B.

    Love that seats are reserved in advance. Real butter on the popcorn is also key. Lastly, a bar in the balcony for drinks during the movie? Might be the best theater in San Francisco.

    Jeffrey Barrett · November 15, 2014
  • Bennett W.

    Bonus points because they brew coffee beans by Peet's Coffee. Definitely a good to know when in need of coffee to substitute soda.

    My fav theater in SF. Sadly it's not near a train line. There's parking nearby at the hotel. Popcorn is decent, alcohol is served at many showings. The balconies are the place to sit. Assigned seats.

    Stephanie Lay · October 22, 2014
  • Alex P.

    Concession stand and comfortable seats

    Alex Plutzer · September 21, 2014
  • Eric W.

    Best place to see movies in the city. Grab a beer and a balcony seat.

    Now serving Humphrey Slocombe ice cream!

    Great customer service. The theater has comfortable seats. There's a balcony section that allows alcohol.

    Dmitri Skjorshammer · August 28, 2014
  • David B.

    Balcony is 21+ so you can enjoy a beer or wine with your movie.

    David Bull · August 25, 2014
  • Jarrod B.

    Ask for your popcorn layered- they'll put butter in the middle and then more on the top.

    Jarrod Ballou · August 23, 2014
  • John D.

    Get beer and go to your movie. You're welcome.

    John Doherty · August 20, 2014

    Assign seats, adult beverages, what more can you ask for!

    Spoon Carvalho · August 20, 2014
  • Adriano C.

    Lots of beverage options, including a number of fruit smoothies

    Very good beer selection. There is a beer that pairs with every entree on the menu.

    Bourbon🍸Explorer · August 16, 2014
  • Bourbon🍸Explorer

    They have a great whiskey selection. Everything from Canadian whiskey to bourbon.

    Bourbon🍸Explorer · August 16, 2014
  • Bourbon🍸Explorer

    Came for a 2pm showing. The kitchen doesn't open until 3pm. Fail!

    Bourbon🍸Explorer · August 16, 2014
  • Matt J.

    Best movie theater in San Francisco when you consider the seat quality / layout, bar options and medium sized crowds.

    Matt Joachim · August 10, 2014
  • Elizabeth A.

    Love drinking good wine and watching a movie at this cinema

    Elizabeth Agnew · August 10, 2014
  • Scott S.

    Order ahead online and get reserved seats!

    Scott Snyder · August 7, 2014
  • Mike D.

    Drink a cocktail on the balcony.

    Mike Davis · August 6, 2014
  • SFist

    The seats are mad comfy, with drink holders and sometimes little table surfaces in between, because they serve food too! And there are cocktails and beer. Need we say more? Read more

    Must buy tickets and select your seats in advance. You can bring alcohol (beer was $13) and food in. They also offer Humphry's Slocombe ice cream there for $6 for a half pint.
