    If you can, see a movie in Auditorium #1 and sit in the balcony. It's 21+ and you have direct access to the balcony bar. Plus, the seats are perfect for getting cozy. #vday

    They have reserved seats and a bar!

    Definitely the best movie theater for a date in the city, choose reserved seats at the 21 + balcony ahead of time, and arrive early for a drink or appies.

    anytime you can see a movie in Auditorium #1, sit in the balcony. It's 21+ and you have direct access to the balcony bar. Plus, the seats are super comfortable. Best for 2 ppl.

    The guy checking IDs for the bar/balcony will name a movie from your birth year! Whoever hired him should get a gold star..

    The San Francisco International Film Festival employs the Kabuki as one of its' principal screens, and shows some of the most exotic, unusual films that you could ever hope to find.

    Make sure you're in the over-21 theaters if you plan on drinking, or be prepared for a sad sober time.

    Reserve seating selectively enforced. Don't sweat it.

    Kevin Smokler · December 15, 2010
  • Kenley G.

    Have a drink in the theater, cocktail, wine or bar. Comfy seats in a small theater setting. Classiest theater in San Francisco. Worth a visit!

  • Dale T.

    The extra $ you spend for selecting/reserving your seat are worth it. Come early to lounge at the mezzanine wine bar or enjoy the adjacent restaurant. Fancy chocolate and gourmet treat snack counter!

    Dale Tegman · June 1, 2012
  • Reno M.

    Like Mario says "sneak in either a bottle of champagne tucked in back of trousers, bottle of whiskey (mix with diet coke) and a carton of bbq chow mein' - also good to do at the Castro theatre

    Phenomenal popcorn. And popcorn is my main food group.

  • Gilt City

    On January 19, Gilt City members can watch Ashton and Natalie heat up the big screen before everyone else...Comedy, Kutcher... oh, and beer and wine. Not a bad way to spend an evening.

  • ViatorStaff

    The tickets are a couple bucks more, but reserved seats, delightful concessions, over 21 theaters w/ drinks & considerate movie going crowd make this one of our favorite places to catch a movie in SF.

    ViatorStaff · August 13, 2010
  • Joseph A.

    Aim for cinema 1 or 2 and get the bar seats, such an awesome movie experience.

    Joseph Adams · July 20, 2010

  • lucas g.

    Outrageous prices at the bar (4 bucks for a small water? WTF?). Otherwise a nice theatre, hip and with some good movies. Wish they showed more European films...

  • Valerie G.

    Try the chips and dip - it's all house made and super delicious!

    Valerie Gorchinski · November 12, 2009
  • judy

    preorder your seats so you don't have to wait in the theater. and if it's not crowded, leave a space so four of you aren't clumped together in an empty theater.

  • Bourbon🍸Explorer

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

    Come for the movies, stay for the tater tots

  • Adam R.

    Instead of leaving in the middle of the movie to use the bathroom, use your cup as a urine receptacle! In some cultures this known as a "Trucker Bomb"

    Adam Rosenberg · August 19, 2013
  • Ilana I.

    Only see movies here from now on. Best theater in the city by far. Worth the extra money!
