Landmark's E Street Cinema: what do users think?


Laura Belles: What a gem. You're not going to get the best sound or recliner seats but this place is still a gem. It was super clean, less expensive than Regal or Alamo and had a good concession. I have probably walked past this theater 100 times and I finally went in tonight to watch Downton Abbey. I'll be back over and over again and am looking forward to seeing some of the independent films that were previewed.

Chase Carrell: Excellent full bar/concession stand, with a clean/friendly atmosphere. Would be a 5 star if they had Icees and reclining seats (currently old school theater seats, though still comfy). Theater 4 is nice and large.

Phin Yeee: Love this place. They have fun midnight showings at an affordable price. The staff is friendly and very helpful. They even check if you qualify for any discounts before you purchase. Plus, Mondays and Tuesdays are only $7. Even if you buy from their website they have a very forgiving cancelation policy.

Thomas Ratliff: E Street is still classic. Get candy or hot snacks, have a beer or a wine, see an amazing independent, foreign or cult film in style. And all at good prices for downtown DC. Love this theater

Jessica McNutt: We've had some issues getting tickets and there is no cellphone signal in the actual theatre, which is a problem for me given my job. Otherwise it's a solid theatre that offers a decent selection.

Moxxie & Luci: More classical than harkins theater and see alot of classic/retro movies too! Not to mention the employees there are kind too. Hope they have a great day

Lyndsay Sheldon: I was traveling from out of state, site seeing. Where I was traveling from, the mask mandate has been lifted. With this being said, curtain establishments in Washington D.C and Virginia do not require masks. We used the parking garage and took the elevator from the garage into the theater. The parking garage does not have signs stating masks required. When we exited the elevator a woman at the front desk said "can I help you?". We politely said "no, we have to step outside" then she screamed, without a mask "I WONT LET YOU BACK IN HERE WITHOUT A MASK". We left. Although it was not our intention to see a movie, if we wanted too, it wouldn't be here. She was completely rude.

Mike Wagner: They play limited release movies and serve beer, wine, and more gourmet-styled food than the chains do. That makes this place exceptional. Enter through the front doors and you're at a kiosk or using the human guest service employee to get your ticket(s). After that, you take stairs/elevator down into the dark basement where your cinematic experience begins. Bathrooms on the right, concessions on the left, and your theater awaits you straight ahead. Go there and have a blast!

Vijay Nilekani: Good selection of movies. But service attitude was lacking in some of the employees. For example I needed phone reception in the downstairs lobby for pressing personal reasons.(I was from out of town. )There were 3 strong wifi sources for Landmark Cinemas. Yet they lied to me that there was none available.

Gena Jackson: first time back to the movies in 2 years since the pandemic, and i was so disappointed. i called in advance about the head pieces for the hearing impaired. they confirmed they were there. unfortunately, they didnt tell me they dont work. i missed the first 10 mins of the movie because the headpiece was so scratchy and mostly only receiving static feedback. the rating gets 2 stars because the guy TRIED to give me a working one. when i returned it the woman up front told me “if i were you i would avoid theater 3” as if i have a choice when im seeing a specific movie. parking was 25 dollars!!!! with no warning. ive never paid that much at e street so it must be a new thing. i wont be back.

The Avalon Theatre: what do users think?


Cristian Marin: The movie was great! However, the staff was disrespectful; expected to the black woman who is so lovely to my guest. Also, I was falsely accused when I took a picture of the ceiling because I love the artwork. The person (male) claims that I was recording the entire film and didn't see where I was aiming at. I cooperated with the staff (male) and encouraged them to look over them to prove them wrong; he refused, didn't cooperate, and asked me to take another picture when the light was on. I was dissatisfied with his behavior. But I was satisfied with the film (Coda) I recommended, and the black woman is such a professional service.

Matthew Lockwood: I love movies and movie theaters... I like the arts, independent cinema, cocktails, date nights, good nonprofits, etc... the folks who run the Avalon are exceptional and hire great staff... but I really wish the Avalon offered ONE family-friendly screening a week. This could take place Saturday or Sunday mornings when the theater is free, or even take advantage of the second screen. This would generate a good deal of much-needed revenue for a nonprofit, entice people back to the cinema after COVID, and introduce a new generation of screen-obsessed kids to the BIG screen. (I will get this event sponsored in 5 minutes so it's all $$.) I have mentioned this to the proprietors, this is the least important issue currently happening in the world, and the Avalon is already one of my five previous lifetime Google Maps reviews (even though it's the best local search platform ever created and should also include a rec for Muchas Gracias)... it's just looking like rain this afternoon and watching the Greatest Showman with the kids would be a lot of fun!

Don Malnati: Nice theatre with comfortable chairs. I'm not sure why check in online showed so many seats not available, as there were more seats available at the show. We just moved to a better seat, so no problem.

Sara Grafals: Excellent Covid safe theater. Vaccination card with identification required as well as mask use. Great movie selection! 👏

Michaela Hillman: The only non profit theater in DC shows blockbuster movies and artistic, dedicated films. Beautiful classic interior reminds you that you are visiting the theater, not just the movies. Avalon serves snacks, beverages (soda, apple cider, beer, wine, juices), and in my opinion the best popcorn (it doesn't upset my stomach like a movie theater popcorn might). I love this theater for the experience and feel good supporting a local business. You won't miss visiting! It's also walkable and nearby plenty of restaurants and a stone's toss from Chevy Chase Pavilion, so this is a perfect dinner and a show type of place. You won't be disappointed.

Leif Engler: I watched star wars here once. But normally they play more artsy films.

Susi Atkinson: My husband and I went to the Avalon today to see In the Heights a second time. A man was in the glass ticket booth and was on the phone. We are kind, patient people and we waited for several minutes. We finally peeked inside the theater door to see if someone else could sell us tickets but no one was there. He continued on the phone. He could clearly see us. Finally we decided to enter the building to see if we could buy tickets at the snack bar. The minute we entered the building the man Finally interrupted his call to remind my husband to put on his mask. We were so angered that he couldn’t interrupt his call momentarily to sell us tickets but instantly did so to instruct us about the mask that we left and will not return.

Baharson: We watched Fauci there. Mostly empty so it was good. Sound and picture quality is good. Seats were comfortable. Keep in mind this is a nonprofit organization so support it !

Ann Brennan: I haven’t been to this theatre in years. Was pleasantly surprised by the recent improvements. They even have a small selection of beer and cappuccino

ytcarol: Great old American movie theater with the original large screen and beautiful painted ceiling. New comfortable seats with lots of leg room for us tall ones, and a whole accessible row. Tiny restroom in theatre but I hear there's a bigger one by lobby. Concessions right there including wine & beer plus a few healthy snacks and the usual popcorn and candies. Second smaller upstairs screen. It's a terrific neighborhood asset.

AMC Georgetown 14: what do users think?


Michelle Ming: I am an A-List member and traveled almost an hour to this AMC location (from Anne Arundel County, MD) because of the proof of vaccination requirement, which to me is a plus. Although it's not free parking like at most AMC theaters, parking is really convenient in the attached underground parking garage (the entrance at the street level is only two or three doors down from the theater entrance). Don't forget to validate your parking garage ticket before you leave, for the $10 rate (good for up to 4 hrs from the time you enter)! Without validation, I would have had to pay $22 for the 2½ movie I took my son to go see (and the minimum parking fee is $11 for 0 to 1 hrs), so that's a pretty good deal. As with all AMC Dolby theaters I've been to, the movie experience is A-MA-ZING and TOTALLY worth the coin. The theater was fairly clean, the bathrooms were tidy / well stocked, and the employees were all very friendly. My only gripe is that their Wi-Fi wasn't working. I kept getting an error message when I attempted to log in to my Stubs account for access.

Jada Carr: This day was my 1st day visiting a public movie theater since 2019. So glad I renewed my AMC Stubs Premier Membership as the Perks have increased. I purchased tickets online and breezed through the initial ticketing line, skipped the line for snack bar and free upgrades. Although I didn't utilize, they have a nice full bar on site w plenty of seating. The theater itself was spacious, Covid friendly and provided a lot of comfort. The seats were large, clean and reclined comfortably. Great quality films/ movies. Appropriate volume. Clean bathrooms. This place is a winner. I'd def visit again when in Georgetown.

Alida “Ally” Pham: Love late night movie nights here by myself! Seats recline, and it’s always clean and when you watch the late movies it’s not too busy. Friendly staff, $10 parking next door garage with your movie!

Shomik Das: Ideally, I would love a dine-in theater. However, this location is clean, has friendly staff and keeps a tight ship on their facilities. They are helpful and there is a good selection of theaters and times available. In the area, this is where to watch movies. It is also close to many places where you can get dinner.

Shannon McReynolds: I used the online option to purchase my ticket, as well as popcorn and a drink. That made it very easy to through and pick up my snacks. The theater recliners are plush with options for a foot rest. Watching our movie was great!

Obinna Ezekwesili: First time watching a movie at this cinema, it was cool but the ads before the movie was so long, you can finish your popcorn and drink or even your full meal before the movie even starts. Also the fire alarm was going off which shows it works but the both times it rang were false and there wasn't any official to let us know any information about the situation.

Alex Navarro: Finally got to take our preschoolers to their first movie since you know, covid and all. We were able to pick our seats and everyone was masked. It was not crowded and felt very safe. The chairs are great and my kids were very impressed!

Stephanie Carter: This place is a total cluster. There's always something broken, the screens that tell you what movie is playing in the Theatre have been out for months and last time I went none of the coke machines were working, which the staff neglected to tell you when you ordered. They've also recently started construction that is very in the way. All that said, it's still unfortunately the best Theatre in DC and they have the reclining seats.

Agent Star: Parking isn’t free in the area, but the theater is nice and up to date for the most part. I like this location because of the park on the water just outside the theater. It’s a good place to take a stroll after your movie.

R S: 25 minutes of previews. Restrooms are far from the theaters. Wifi didn't work, even when trying to sign up which is required. Movie and sound were very good. Chairs were reasonably comfortable.

Regal Gallery Place: what do users think?


kittycat222: Great experience!! First time ever going to a 4D movie and it was amazing! The movie was awesome(Quiet Place 2) but it wasn't the best choice for 4D. It didn't have rain, fog, or thunder. So I didn't get wet or anything. I loved it though, the chairs moved and blew air from behind me. It scared me a bit. Just choose a movie wisely😁like one with rain and thunder that you can see in trailer☺️

A.S.C. Automotive Detailing Services, LLC: I saw "Top Gun Maverick" for the second time here today and loved every moment of it! The movement of the chairs, the sound effects, vibrations, the wind blowing etc was really intense. This is such a wonderful way to view this movie. Worth every penny!! Incredible experience.🙌🏾💫💫💫💫💫

Leslie B. Akinola: I would like 5 more stars to rate this theater. I really enjoy viewing the latest movies here in 4DX. The chairs move w/ the movie and it is truly a WONDERFUL experience. If you haven't checked them out, please do so immediately! You will not regret the visit.

Tina M: Parking is expensive, but they'll validate if you bring ticket with you. Limited street parking. Theater is large with comfortable seating and offers 4D films, which are AMAZING! Offer a wide selection of candy. Popcorn wasn't super fresh but still yummy. Beer, soda, bottled water available.

Michael B: NEVER will I go here again.. terrible customer service. Always running out of something, concessions take forever and they often are out of ingredients or menu items. They didn't have adult size glasses for a 4d movie. I said for $25 ticket I expect better, they said you pay for the seats not the glasses. As someone new to DC I was oblivious, regal theaters are nice where I'm from. But this one is absolutely the worst.

Angelica Norman-Beltran: I love going to this theater but I have to say that on my last visit I was disappointed with the staff. There were zero staff at the actual concession stand and a group of 4 we're standing in the hall where you have your tickets checked just talking. I made eye contact with at least one of them who just continued talking with the group. It was annoying. My movie was going to start soon and they were having a social hour. I get having fun at work and being social but you can do that and be professional too.

Mine Yalcin: I would never go back to this place again. First of all the traffic around this place is horrible, took me 45 minutes to turn just “one” block to reach the parking. Ok fine, the traffic is not under their control. Real deal for one star starts here; I was stuck in that traffic for 1.5 hours just to go in and find out the show (that we purchased the tickets two week prior) was cancelled without any notice, we even got an “upcoming event” email notice a day prior, but never got any notice to let us know the show was cancelled. Apparently they cancelled the movie, they sold tickets for, on that same day without letting anyone know (There were other people just like us), to put another show in that theater, offering a refund for our tickets. Well guess what, you cannot refund my time and gas and miles and that traffic stress I went through to go there to watch a 4D movie 😡😤🤬 Very dissatisfied and disappointed. Stealing and disrespecting customers’ time like that is rude and unacceptable, wouldn’t expect that from Regal 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

Nikolas G: This is my "home" theater since the uptown and mazza closed. I LOVE the 4DX. If you haven't tried it yet you should 100% check it out and the new Top Gun is the perfect vehicle for that technology. So why 3 stars? The bathroom had no soap in any way of the dispensers I tried. The water fountains were both broken and the popcorn they insist on salting themselves due to Covid meaning you are no longer allowed to safely salt your own was so over salted it was basically inedible. Love the location and I know they can do better than this.

a mb: Everything was clean, service was super fast, the lady at the concession stand was Supra helpful and kind. We have to use the restrooms and they were super clean. Went for the 4DX experience and it was super cool! The auditorium super clean too, the gentleman that scanned the tickets was super kind and help us with kid glasses for our functions, he was happy even though he had to go to another place to get them. They validate parking, everything was superb (-; everyone was kind, they work like a team, I was so positively impressed because the last time we came, everything that could be bad was worse lol 😆 Is so cool to see how good this place is now! Coming back for sure! Even though we have to drive 35 minutes lol the 4DX and the location is worth it.! Thank you for your hard work, we can see the difference.

A Michell: Great place to catch a movie or meal.4D theater is cool. Not for those that get motion sickness. Only issue I had was the theater was absolutely freezing cold.

Miracle Theatre: what do users think?


Luis Rueda: This is a great, old fashioned neighborhood movie theater. I went as a chaperone to a 4th grade class. The staff at the theater were simply great. They were patient when dealing with a large, chaotic bunch of kids. They were very welcoming and helpful. The theater brought back memories of when I was a kid. It is great having the Miracle Theater in the neighborhood. I highly recommend it.

dipika: Lovely, small theater perfect for intimate shows. The staff were friendly and quick to check vaccination records and orient us to the space. Because it was a vaudeville theater back in the day and continues to show movies, they sell typical movie theater concessions which is actually really fun for concerts. The seats and overall seating space are small and out of date, so not the most comfortable, but the overall experience makes up for it.
Response: So glad you enjoyed your visit to The Miracle!

Theresa Westover: We hosted my four year old daughter's birthday party at the Miracle Theatre and it was an absolute blast! The lobby was perfect to set up a cake, some balloons and decorations, and the theater was obviously plenty big for our group of 25. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed, made sure the guests had everything they wanted for snacks, and it was so fun to have a place for the kids to watch a movie together where they could also let loose, have fun, and dance without ruining the movie for anyone. Would HIGHLY recommend renting out their space and will likely do so in the future for more events.

Andi Gunther: I went to a Laura Stevenson show last night. It was awesome! Super kind employees and awesome venue.

Danielle Scott: My first here. 5 mins into the movie we noticed the wrong movie was playing but that was fixed in a timely manner. The popcorn is decent, prices are reasonable. The seats gets uncomfortable after awhile but other than that I enjoyed myself will definitely be back.

Rohan Bhargava: Really nice venue for live music. Acoustics were excellent and service was great.

aaron ackley: This is a great venue. We were there for The Moth, but will be watching the calendar for other events. Drinks are generous and the popcorn reasonable.

Amy Suchodolski: Super cute with a lot of history. Attended a concert and the sound was wonderful.

Team Augustine: If I could give them a zero I would. We booked the entire upper balcony for our daughter's birthday party to see "Sing 2". Everyone arrived for "Sing 2"and we were informed that, without any notice, they changed the movie to "Encanto", a movie that has been out for 3 months. All the kids attending the party have seen Encanto multiple times. We had confirmed "Sing 2" 4 days prior. After acknowledging the change of movie they said that they couldn't change the movie back to the one we booked under because it had been advertised as Encanto despite the fact that we had purchased 14 tickets with our birthday party and they only had 8 tickets from the general public. So not only was this the wrong thing to do but it didn’t make economic sense. Our daughter has seen Encanto no less than 5 times as have all of the party participants so we had to leave and go to a park instead. It has to be one of the most unprofessional and inexplicable experience I've ever had with a birthday venue. Sure, they reimbursed the tickets but they completely ruined an 11 year old's birthday party through utter incompetence and inflexibility. She just remarked that this was her worst birthday ever. Never again.

Mollie Ellis: We had an incredible experience there for my sons bday. I rented the theater on a Sunday morning and the kids had a blast.

Landmark's Atlantic Plumbing Cinema: what do users think?


Nathaniel Warren: Snack stand was conveniently placed so I could order and grab my food and not have to zigzag to find my theater with all that stuff in my hand. I appreciated that the attendant walked me to my theater, and was knowledgeable to whether or not the movie had started. Although, it was stressful to have a non-ergonomic tray for my food. More thought should be put into this; there should be a more reliable tray for large popcorn and large drinks. I was 75% sure I was going to drop my stuff, as well as my phone trying to get to into the theater. A MAJOR turn off for me is that the movie volume was painstakingly quiet, and no employee was present to have known about the issue in order to do something about it. Lastly, it was uncomfortably cold in the theater. I do like the idea of this establishment and all the positives that I pointed out, but I highly doubt I'll be returning. Edit: Oh and the popcorn was stale

Lilliandra Shaffer: I really love this theater. The theater sizes are small, maybe 100 seats, so every movie feels big, but you don't feel small. The audio and visual qualities of the movies are as good as any other theater I've been to, but I've never felt like the sound was TOO loud (looking at you Gallery Place) The popcorn is great. The people who work there are nice. There is a bar and you can bring your drinks into the movie with you. My favorite place to see a movie.

Callum Wayman: A great local cinema with a fabulous bar and a few intimate theaters. I've seen several movies here and I find the staff to be friendly and the theaters are clean and comfortable.

Mark Stern: A wonderful place! Almost every seat is a good one since the theaters are relatively small. Great drinks and concessions. Better than E Street!

Jane L: I've always loved Landmark E Street bc of it's location and choice of movies, but Landmark Atlantic Plumbing let's you choose specific seats! The theater I was in had 48 seats. They are comfy but do not recline. It wasn't the cleanest theater. My seat had remnants of spilled drink as well as trash in the cupholders but it wasn't too bad. The bathroom was extremely dimly lit, which was weird but fine. Staff was super nice.

Madelaine Dudley: This is absolutely my favorite theater. So happy to see they were able to make it through the pandemic. Being able to return and do one of my favorite things has been such a joy. The staff here is also amazing. In particular, the concession attendant with the fabulous style, fresh nails, and upbeat personality. Love them.

Sean Randolph-Tensley: This was a great DATE AFTERNOON WITH THE HUBBY! Went to see Batman, the movie had stalled when it was 3/4 the way through but the manager took care of the situation and have everyone free movie passes. That's how it should be done!

Mark Dunkum: Convenient location to which I can walk. Chairs rock, but don't recline. Smaller, more intimate screens and theaters.

leah todd: Movie theater not too crowded. Comfortable seats.

silvana salazar: Very comfortable! They have the best popcorn I've tried so far. Very very delicious!

Angelika Pop-Up at Union Market: what do users think?


Chris Atkins: Angelika's is a great place to catch a good movie. It's a small theater but I love the retro movie posters and the fact that you can have a glass of wine or a brew with your popcorn or chili dog. Definitely a favorite theater of mine.

Mark Cowman: I was just hanging around town and wanted to see a movie and when I did a Google search, this ace was the closest and I'm happy it was. What a cool little theater. I had no idea what to expect as I headed over there but when I walked in O found an atmosphere that reminded me of the movie houses that I used to go to in Germany. A good selection of food and drink, reasonable prices and 4 comfortable theaters. The ginger beer they had was fabulous. The staff was really cool as well.

Michael B: Be warned, this is definitely a "pop up", meaning they did the bare minimum to make this an operational theater. There are no tiered seats, no high end modern video/audio capabilities you expect from paying for expensive theater tickets, and the food was meh. I'd encourage sneaking in your own. Unless you want to lay $3.50+ tax and tip for an 12oz can of soda.

Jonathan Rios: Good ticket prices, beautiful ambiance, the sound system and quality is pretty awesome for a place like this. I will come every week!

Jahtay Teh: I really enjoy this place, but the screen is quite small. If you're looking for a smaller feel, this is a good place, but this isn't the place to go see a loud action-filled movie.

Joseph Peralta: Great space. You can pick your seats when purchasing tickets in advance. They bring you your order to your seats. Staff is amazing.

B Wilson: My favorite theater to visit! The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. Love their beer and wine selection and it is never over crowd when I visit which I love.

Dondré: I love this theater. It's nice and low key, they have great drinks and snacks. This theater has never been crowded when I've been to see anything. The staff is super friendly too. My only complaint is that the seats are all at the same level so if there is someone talker than you sitting in front of you, it's hard to see past their head.

H.C. ely: Unique and first rate. Very clean and the staff were professional. They made our theater experience unencumbered which released us to emerge in the film.

Carl-Gustav Anderson: Wonderful little theater. Cozy and friendly. Nice selection of food and drinks, and great selection of films.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema DC Bryant Street: what do users think?


Danielle Holmes: Love seeing another piece of Texas on the East Coast. This is a replica of the other Alamo drafthouses in the area and in Texas as well. There’s plenty of parking. The menu is filled with options for everyone. The buffalo cauliflower wings are delicious. You receive concierge service right at your seat. It’s an incredible movie experience. The theater also showcase older films to watch on the big screen.

Philip Wilson: I was very excited to visit this new theater in the city. I got in a few minutes early so I could be sure I'd have time to place my order before the movie started. The menu was wayyy more extensive than I thought it would be (even though they didn't have sweet tea). I had the cheese steak and a glass of rosé that was delicious. The service was great and my server was very attentive. I do wish they'd designed the walkway so the servers didn't have to crouch down to walk through, but it is what it is. In terms of the theater. The BIG theater is just that.. big. The Dolby Atmos sound system was perfect for the space and it made the movie going experience a quality one. I'll be back

Josh Roberts: I had a good experience here. I didn't get any shots inside the actual theater since they have a strict "no phones" policy, but the reclining seats are wickedly comfortable. There were a couple things I would improve on but I'm going to grade the Alamo on a slight curve since this location is new and maybe they're still figuring some things out. First and most importantly, the movie was at least 10 decibels too loud. I would have brought some form of hearing protection had I known, that's how bad it was. I was watching an action movie, so I guess they made it so loud to be more in-your-face and intense but they're going to cause hearing loss with those types of levels. Also (though completely unnecessarily) the movie had closed captioning, which I didn't see advertised anywhere. Maybe it was listed on a sign somewhere and I just missed it but the theater didn't go out of its way to let people know about the closed captioning. It varies from person to person, but personally captions tend to annoy me and I feel like they distract from the cinematic experience. If you are from the Alamo Drafthouse and you're reading this, I thought most aspects of the theater were great and I would recommend it, but it would be helpful if you took some of this criticism into consideration.

Mathew Crichton: Feels good to finally be in an Alamo here in DC proper. Speedy service, tasty food/drinks, and best of all... a cinema experience done right! No talking, no texting, no cell phones. Just the movie, a cold beer, and my feet up 🍿🎬🎟️

Nicholas West: Had a great time at the Alamo Drafthouse for a soft opening screening of Ghostbusters:Afterlife. Good food, good beer selection, good movies and it's brand new! Worth a visit for movie night. They also have the largest screen in DC outside the Smithsonian! I will definitely be back soon and looking forward to my next visit. Oh almost forgot they have a parking garage and you can validate parking for up to 4 hours! Update: Been here several times since the soft opening, still great! Food is good, drinks are good, but the staff and theatre are all even better. Worth a visit or a season pass of visits! I enjoy the chicken nuggets and fries!

Elle P.: DC keeps giving BIG reasons to love the city vibe, and the latest installation has me dancing in the street from a natural high! Everybody rush to Alamo Drafthouse Cinema before the novelty is gone!! As soon as we walked in, we were greeted with warm welcomes, Happy New Year wishes and sheer joy, just for the heck of it. We purchased tickets online so an easy scan of the code on my phone admitted us. We exchanged a few more pleasantries with the staff and up the escalator we went to view our movie. Upon entering the theater we were pleasantly greeted yet again by our waiter, YES, I SAID WAITER! No 20th Century concession stand popcorn and overpriced candy here. Damion was AWESOME, and one of the reasons I will be back next week. Since this was our first visit, he gave us the run down of how ordering from the menu works... ...easy peasy! We ordered fish & chips, buffalo wings, and loaded fries. The food was delish, but that's not all, they had very appetizing options for vegans as well such as pizzas with vegan cheese and cauliflower crust, cauliflower buffalo wings and more. Another reason for me to go again and again. Damion was attentive with the push of a button and made sure we were well taken care of. ...and when the movie was over, we walked outside to New Year's Eve street jams at the Metro bar directly across from the Alamo Cinema. This is a major come up for this part of NE DC, and suddenly I felt like I was in a Matrix scene, 'cause this experience was a complete 180° from previous experiences in this same space a few years ago.

Mike Bernal: I've been to other Alamo Drafthouse locations before, and this was just another great experience. I believe they're still in the soft opening phase so they're still working out kinks. I think there were a few questions to double check our order but the staff was always so friendly that I never cared when they came over. They're stealthy and quick with drop offs. The food was good. I particularly enjoyed the buffalo cauliflower and the shakes. There's parking in site with validation if you're watching a movie so it's super easy to get there. It's what walking distance from the Rhode Island metro if you're using public transportation. Great spot.

Jay Empty: Such a great venue for a movie night with the family, friends, or solo. Higher quality standard movie theater fare plus a wider selection of food to choose from, fun non alcoholic beverages, tasty alcoholic beverages, and desserts make for an incredible menu. Seating is lovely with reclining lazy boy style seating for each individual and swing arm tables that allow food to be right in front of if so desired. Great audio and image quality for the contemporary selection of movies. Wait staff has been incredible, friendly, and helpful on each visit. Highly recommend if you enjoy movies on the big screen!

Denise Thomson: Great theater in the city. There is plenty of parking near the theater. We didn't choose to park in the garage during our visit. The menu is fair. They could use some more fun vegetarian options. I asked the waitress for the alcoholic coffee shake and she said she couldn't take the coffee out. Didn't make sense to me but it was fine. I found an alternative so it was ok. The ladies at the check in desk were super sweet but couldn't move our seats when we requested that.

Shanel Morrisey: This was a nice experience. I took my 4 year old to his first movie along with my 24 year old daughter. The movie theater serves food and drinks like a restaurant and they serve you at your seat. You don't have to worry about missing something by going to a concession stand. You pick your seats from what's available, and the seats can recline and the table moves to be easier to eat from. It's so nice to have a luxury theater so close to home and metro accessible.

Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater: what do users think?


Dan Whitlock: Caught and evening movie, Captain marvel, at the IMAX Air and space museum. The film experience was very cool but it was almost worth it just to see the Air and space museum empty at night. They have regular concessions and there is not a bad seat in the house. Very glad we took the time to see a movie there.

C. Eric Scott: It had been several years since I last saw a film here, as I usually go out to the Airbus IMAX out at the Udvar-Hazy Center but I was downtown and decided to go. For IMAX films and big blockbusters, like Avengers: Endgame, this is a great and convenient alternative to going out Udvar-Hazy, and if you have a Smithsonian membership, you can even get discounted movie tickets. Both the picture and sound were excellent, I'm sure I'll be back.

Jorge Piquer: Always great experience watching movies here. Good job keeping everything organized for the Star Wars premier. Sci-Fi Sundays are awesome. All proceeds from the ticket and concessions goes back to the museum. They don't have a huge selection and they don't serve popcorn but at least it's for a good cause.

Robert M: The best place to see first-run Hollywood IMAX movies in DC, hands down! Tips: - The theater is general admission (no reserved seating) so show up at least 30 minutes prior to show time (or even earlier for the opening weekend of highly anticipated movies) to get good seats. - Best seats are the top 6 rows in the middle. - You must purchase candy, snacks, and drinks at the ticket window when you purchase your tickets. Better to sneak in your own snacks. - Don't bother buying tickets in advance on-line, because (1) there's a service fee, and (2) you can't print your tickets at home and must instead stand in the same line with those who are buying their tickets at the box office.

Rob Campbell: If you're over 6ft it could be uncomfortable. For better viewing experience, sit closer to the top rows. The front is way too close.

Paul Behin: As one of the only TRUE IMAX theatres in the area, I love seeing movies here. Especially those filmed in IMAX as this is how they were meant to be seen. The screen is massive, the seats are comfortable enough (if a little too upright) and the price is satisfactory. IMAX is more than just a big screen. The aspect ratio of IMAX movies is different from standard movies and most other theatres in the area (I'm looking at you AMC) aren't real IMAX, they've just licensed the name. If you're close to the DC area and want to see blockbusters that were filmed in IMAX as they were meant to be seen, this is the place to go. The staff, for the most part, is also very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.

Felix Schröter: Nice IMAX experience although it's digital (laser) and not 70mm Film. Also it doesn't show the full height but it's already way larger than normal cinema screenings. The sound system was great and the 3D effect was good as well (I often had problems in other cinemas with seeing double). The price was very good with 15 $.

Blehbo Boogins: You can't beat the picture and audio quality, and even when you're forced to sit all the way up close to the screen it's still a far better experience than at a chain like AMC. The Air and Space Museum is my go to movie theater for big blockbusters, especially for the price! Be sure to make reservations in advance for big releases, they go fast.

Thomas Hastings: It breaks my heart not to give 5 stars as I love Smith Air & Space and this theater. The problem is the access. If you’re going to a movie on a busy day, the museum hasn’t figured out how to differentiate access between the possible throngs of visitors waiting to enter the museum and the paying customers of the theater. If you’re close to movie time and the line is long, the official refrain you get from museum staff is “tough; feel free to ask for a refund.” That is incredibly annoying. The customer experience can be a huge oversight but otherwise the theater is great in maybe the best venue in the world for IMAX.

Albert: Always so impressed with the screen here. Have been twice and each time I am equally in awe. The venue is well-maintained and clean. I saw Rogue one here on Christmas eve and was impressed with how well the staff kept the lines moving with such a large number of people trying to get in. There are concessions (beer, wine, soda, etc) , which was a nice touch. Expect to pay $7 though for a beer. Would go back.

Lincoln Theatre: what do users think?


Rashi Garg: We went for the first time this Sunday..Really beautiful theater with plenty of seating. We attended a concert, the sound and lighting was pretty good. They also have a bar (cashless) and a popcorn booth. Our only issue was, Lincoln Theater does not offer parking so that was a bit of a challenge, make sure to plan to arrive early to find good parking in the nearby garages/lots. The Spot agent website showed parking is available at the Reeves center garage, but that was full. Fortunately we found parking on V street in one of those make shift lots, it was a little expensive at $30, but it was just a block away from the theater so we didn't mind.

Chris Peele: The Aurora Aksnes concert was beautiful, however shorter than her other shows this US tour. An intimate setting with seating and first come General Admission. Unparalleled view of the stage, and ability to hold your seat once you have it if you have to use the restroom or grab drinks. No parking of course so plan on stressing trying to find a 24hr parking garage near by for about $30 for 4-24 hrs.

Jeff White: Great venue. Great acoustics. Nice to have drinks available. Parking is a challenge so figure that out beforehand. A lot of the street parking is permit only. PS - Colin Hay is absolutely fantastic. Great performance and great story teller.

Tasneem Mansour: We came here to see the Foil Arms and Hog show. It's a really nice theater and the refreshments are simple (popcorn and Lincoln logs) but they're delicious. While the water is free, the snacks are a bit overpriced, but you find that at any theater.

Quentin Hodges: A beautiful, old theater in the heart of Washington D.C. Classic architecture with a great sound system. The seats are old, yet comfortable. Street parking may be difficult but we found a $10 parking garage less than a ten-minute walk to/from the theater. Prior to the show we had a great dinner at Ted’s Bulletin, also within walking distance.

Scott Hummel: This is one of those older single stage theatres. Came here to see scribble showdown 2. No dedicated parking lot. I got a hotel and walked. The entrance staff was super quick, one to verify vax and one to scan ticket. The lobby is small. There's merchandise and a mini drink bar. You walk in and find your seat. The seat became very painful after 2 hours. The show was amazing. If they do a third here, I'll come back.

Neil Crowell: Saw Mat Kearney on 4/24/22, a general admission show. Got in line at 6:15 for doors at 6:30 and was able to get in the 4th row, dead center. Amazing experience.

Steve Little: The show was incredible and the atmosphere was electric. It would have been great if the AC unit was working.

Eileen Potocnak Arnold: Great venue to see musicians/theater/etc. in an old space that has been nicely renovated.

Lisa Ryan: Great show due to fabulous artist, Corinne Bailey Rae, wonderful staff and fun people. However, I give the Lincoln Theater one star due to NO AC! Unbelievable there was no notification of this prior to ticket purchase, and as I understand it from a number of employees it's been this way for 3 months! Think twice before attending this venue if you are heat sensitive and need healthy air ventilation.

Studio Theatre: what do users think?


Rose Schneider: The story for the white noise performance was excellent, not easy but invokes some real thinking.. The acting of all four characters but especially the lead male was unparalleled.

Joseph Raczynski: Impressive space, in the theater me just outside where they often have receptions. The reception area is a tad funky with pillars breaking up the room. It's awkward unfortunately. Overall the theater makes up for that minus. Always feel free to reach out to me on Twitter @joerazz

Jim Long: Great show! Well performed ands thoughtful.

Sergio Guerrero: Had a great experience and the place looks amazing after the 2021 remodeling. You're in close proximity to the action in the theater.

Scott “DC Cheetah” Suchyta: Very much enjoyed Flight, which was the purpose of our visit. It was quite an impressive display and work of art. The under-construction space was a little labyrinthian, but was only a minor obstacle.

Ruth Ann Nelson: Wonderful set of small theaters showing avant garde plays. Always a treat to go there!

Dave Watts: We're lucky in DC to have so many good theaters. Studio was renovated a few years ago and has several stages available at once for plays. Most of them have seats that wrap maybe two-thirds around the stages. The stages are pretty small, but large enough to be effective. A lot of the plays here have small casts, maybe just three people, and they're almost all modern plays by new, respected playwrights, and the plays aren't so ... experimental as you might see elsewhere. The actors are quite talented and the plays are almost always very good. There is an occasional rare clunker, but season tickets are definitely worthwhile!

Joseph Buckreis: Great staff, totally welcoming and friendly even to college students. Students get a great discount which makes it even more worthwhile to come see a play or three here. Clean and cozy, the theater is really comfy and looks good. They put on a lot of new and exciting shows, definitely a good place to see a play, especially if you're new to theater

Cornelis Vaandrager: What an exquisite menu. I haven't been in the US long, but this has by far been one of my favourite dining experiences. The food was perfectly seasoned and perfectly flavoured, it came to our table far faster than expected. Servers were attentive and really helpful in terms of recommendations. It was really a marvelous experience. I would recommend the fig wrapped in ham, the skirt steak, the Brussels sprouts, the lamb meatballs, and the eggplant is a triumph. I am most definitely returning

Matt Easley: Have seen at least four performances here in the 2018-19 season. All were poinent plays for our day. Acting and staging were always outstanding, the plays thought provocative, and the price for the evening quite reasonable. Always a good selection of drinks at the bar as well and lots of good restaurants near by. Worth visiting regularly.

Emily Deanne: Incredible theater! One of the best places to go to see a show. They do a great job. I have seen three shows here and they have all blown me away. The theater staff are hardworking, kind, and fantastic at putting on a production. You can tell they must have a really good production coordinator and directors for the shows. They are also very Covid safe. Everyone wears masks and you must show proof of vaccination to enter. Check out this theater if you have the chance! I will be attending many more shows here.

Lisa Reed: Our first visit to Theater J through a Folger Theater subscription and we saw Nathan the Wise. We loved the production and plan to return. We weren't able to park in their small lot so we parked across from Whole Foods in the 24 hour garage. We had brunch at Iron Gate before the play.

Rick: First time to Theater J. From Minneapolis on vacation and found this searching for Performances to see while in town. What a great theater and amazing performance! So emotional that made me laugh and cry along with the rest of the audience. I was drawn in to every word and scene. Amazing set, sound, and of course the two cast members! Definitely will add Theater J as a place to check out on my future trips. Thanks for the awesome experience. ❤
Response: Rick - thank you very much for your nice review - we hope to see you again at Theater J the next time you are back in town!

Andrew Reid: Saw "Nathan the Wise" here, lots of layers to that one. Helpful staff, good location.

Jason Hoi: Loved the play! Staff is excellent. Production is excellent. Will come back for every show!!

Jeff Parnes: This is a great small venue for plays that relate to religion, Jewish or otherwise, Jewishness, Isreal, or Jewish institutions or traditions. We've been rarely disappointed in the shows we've seen. Some years we opt for a season pass, others we pick and choose. On the street parking is available, for Sunday matinees usually not a problem, otherwise get there a half an hour early so you can find a place.

Raphael Tisch: I saw Broken Glass here, and it was a fantastic production. Smallish, intimate theater, serving beer, wine, and snacks. Exiting is a bit odd, as the front doors close at a certain hour, so you have to exit out the back basement. I'd definitely come back for another show.

Catherine Eby: Beautiful theater with recently remodeled lobby spaces. Great staff and wonderful work.

Ronald Wolfsheimer: Tuesdays with Morrie was the best! See it!

Sean Oros: Superb theater with friendly service and fantastic performances. Great for university trips.

Warner Theatre: what do users think?


Patrick: I went to watch The Washington Ballet's performance of Giselle. The theater was a perfect fit for the size of the production and how could you look past the ornate decorative walls in the lobby and in the theater?! Very instagramable. To my surprise, there is even an orchestra pit, which I had never seen in previous performances. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating. The drinks are too pricey, so if you like to have a buzz before a performance, maybe go to a nearby restaurant first. The security managed the door well and the process was not unnecessarily long. The will call line, however, was. It would have been helpful if there had been one extra person to facilitate ticket pick-up.

Angela McKeen: What an historic and beautiful building! A wonderful venue to hold the recognition event for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. I couldn't have been more impressed with the elegance of the Warner Theatre

Lázaro Carvalhaes: I liked everything about this place, from the acoustics of the main room to the ease of parking. The restrooms are well maintained and the decoration is pretty cool too. I'd love to come back here when visiting DC again.

Phil Hardy: I love this theatre. The ornate architecture is simply sublime. I could stare at the walls and ceilings all evening. Acoustics are fine, seats comfortable and the bar lines move quickly. A take off a star because the toilets are in the basement. Takes awhile to get there and back.

Lisa Swager: The theater is 100 years old. It's looking overly ornate for today's standards. The curtains havent been taken down for cleaning in decades and look it. And the seats were designed for butts of 100 years ago, so anyone that's "a person of size" is going to be uncomfortable in these seats. Almost Frederick Fairgrounds bleacher seats- bad. Drinks were really expensive at $9 for a single and $18 for a double and all i ordered was a vodka collins and what i got was a vodka soda with a twist of lime. Not the same drink! Like everyone says, the acoustics are great. Could hear people talking down in the orchestra level. Parking under the Pennsylvania house was still $22 in this tiny garage with a 1-way driveway. But they did badge us into the lobby to take the elevator down to our car. We just had to find the right elevator to call. It's not the same as the building elevators, it's around the corner. I probably wont be back to this venue.

Christina King: The historic Warner Theatre is a lovely experience. The atmosphere is stunning. Seats are very tight. So if you are tall definitely get an aisle seat.

Michael: Architecture is truly something to see. Acoustics very good, seats comfortable, bathrooms clean, ushers friendly and helpful, and A/C nice and cool. Every seat is a good seat, but recommend getting middle orchestra. Parking garage super clean and well lit and reasonably priced. ( I paid 18 bucks online for the whole day). Would go there again, for sure.

Louise Brady: The theatre is beautiful. We had a great view of the stage from the middle of the balcony seats. Though it looked like there would be a great view from anywhere in the theatre as its nicely laid out and not too big. Drink prices are quite high but they do accept card and cash. Water in a can was a bit different!!. Plus it was called Liquid Death!!! I would happily go to another event at this theatre.

Valeria Contreras: Great venue. Has that classic theater vibe to it. The staff was incredibly courteous and polite. They have a great security screening as well. I do recommend getting to the theater quite early to avoid the security line. My one and only grievance is how freaking expensive the snacks were. Omg. Bought two large sodas, one single-shot vodka lemonade, and a small bag of chips, and that was a total of $50. Feels a little over the top when you have already bought expensive tickets to be there already. But understandable, it is almost expected from any theater like the Warner. Still, I'm salty about it.

Gary Lee: Saw Tedeschi Trucks in concert recently. The Warner Theatre was able to process guests through their COVID protocol, ticket verification and into our assigned seats quickly and efficiently. The concert was fabulous, the merch tables was manned by well-trained workers who kept the line moving; the snacks was in good supply and delicious warm pretzels was great!

Rebecca Chapman: I really like this location! Arlington Village has many amazing restaurants and shops. This theater also sells beer and wine, so it’s a great place to go for a date after dinner and see a movie together! They have leather reclining seats. Good choices for snacks. Friendly helpful staff. This is a very nice local place to see the top movies. It’s close by the freeway so you can pop on and off the freeway quickly! I recommend this theater! Enjoy!

William West Hopper (DC Car Guy): Well used center seats. You would have thought during pandemic reopening they would have recovered the seats in studio three. The movie warching experience was good. Though the sound and vibration from the action film in the next studio did make its way over to our more quiet film. The reclining seats (all of the in studio 3) were nice other than the center ones were well worn. Other than that the theater was clean. Did not buy any drinks or food.

Nicole Baldwin: So last week we went to see Top Gun Maverick(Tuesday #3)and Jurassic Park Dominion (Friday #6). At $60+dollars a pop, I was hoping the experience would have been a little better. We ordered everything on line ahead of time. When we arrived, I was happy to see things were clean and seemed well stocked. The staff is super nice and very helpful. Even though we ordered ahead we do ended up in line for awhile. It wasn't a big deal at all. The popcorn however is god awful... both times. The soda is flat, weak, and the ice was out both times. The sound is awful in both theaters. It bleeds through from other movies. The seats are comfy and were clean. The bathrooms were clean and stocked. Honestly, I was hoping the awful popcorn was a one off but it wasn't. I probably could have said something but I don't think it would have mattered. It's how they make it or because they make it ahead of time and it is stale. I think we will end up forgoing future movies here. It's a bummer because we really wanted to start going to the movie again.

Lolita Pollard-Kezele: Small AMC. Very comfortable seating and drama free. Get there early because parking is tricky. This is the closest theater to my home and we go often.

Jen W: Great local movie theater with incredibly comfortable reclining seats. Conveniently located across the street from a wide range of bars and restaurants. The bar staff at the theater cannot be beat. They are quick, friendly, and professional. Grab a beer and see a movie. It's time.

Matt Cobbs: Probably won't be making a return trip to this theater. The seats, although reclining, are too tight and not in line with modern luxury seats of other theaters. Left me with a sore back and the lack of stadium style seating also forces you to look up at the massive screen the whole time and that gets uncomfortable. Also, the attendants at the concession stand and ticket taker were not very polite and just seemed to be going through the motions. All in all, disappointing movie going experience for sure.

James Derenge: Great place to see a movie. Wide recliner seats. Normal size screen. Not crowded for matinees. I just saw Top Gun Maverick and was super comfortable the whole time.

Emily Larson: Great staff, great theater. We came here recently and had problems with our seats and the staff was super nice, quick and responsive, and ended up giving us vouchers to come back another time when they couldn’t fix the problem. Thanks, team!

Judy Robinson: Theater had some kind of tech difficulties. Had to wait and there was no fountain drinks. But enjoyed Jurrasic World. Mid day movies are great!

Dr. Theresa Horne: Not my fave. Very small theater. Seats a little worn. Others do it better in the area.

Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater: what do users think?


Kitchen Boy: My wife, her sister and mother have had subscriptions for years and once I was part of their group. I dropped out after what I thought was a particularly bad season. Now I come occasionally when one of the group can't make it. But as others have, I'll break down the review into facility and plays. First the facility is amazing and the staging excellent and the concession good. At this point in our understanding (March 2022), I find the mask requirement and vax card screening unnecessary and ridiculous. The plays are often heavy handed in their messages and often preachy. If one is conservative (moderate myself) you won't find much balance in the material/subject matter or political slant. The play I saw on this occasion, Change Agent, was interesting and while sitting right on the edge of preachy, decently covered a complex subject.

Scott “DC Cheetah” Suchyta: It's a little hard to capture my opinion of Arena Stage by a number of stars. Let's start with the good. It is a very nice space. I really like the physical theatres and the stages. However, the shows I have seen (the entirety of the current season) just have not been particularly good in my opinion. The focus demographic of Arena Stage I will grant does not seem to be me. I think you will enjoy the shows more if you are closer to 60 than 30 years old. Historical characters, speculative fiction, strong/influential women, and the like have been highlighted this season. It's not exactly that I feel like the shows they put on don't reflect my values, I just don't think the shows have been particularly intriguing plays.

Brad Moffett: Watch a great presentation of Catch Me If You Can last night. It was the final night of the show and there was a special energy to the performance. The theater at Arena Stage is set in the round and there isn't a bad seat. We actually recommend sitting up at least halfway back as it gives you a clearer view of the entire stage. The ushers were very helpful and numerous. All in all a marvelous example of professional theater

Jessica McNutt: I always want to enjoy my experience at the Arena Stage more than I inevitably do. I don't feel like I'm the target audience for many of the shows, though some I really like. Most everyone that works there is always lovely and nice. The one exception being my last visit when an employee, who was actually sitting in the audience, was quite surprisingly rude and disrespectful to us. While it did happen and it's impacted my personal feelings about this theatre, I will say that every other employee has always been incredibly gracious, nice and helpful. If you are looking into a show here, you should do it. It may not be the best experience ever, but you'll almost certainly have a good time.

Kelly Prizel: This huge space can also host weddings! Located literally steps from The Wharf, there are a few hotels you can get ready for your wedding at, take pictures at The Wharf and then have your ceremony and reception at the Arena. With floor to very high ceiling windows, your ceremony and reception will be flooded with natural light. There is plenty of space to host a very large wedding here. They even have multiple options for where to host cocktail hour. The staff are really helpful and since they are used to making things run smoothly with huge performances, this is easy for them and they make it look effortless. The biggest downside is the carpet running throughout the building. It's a dark brown with bright orange. It's not subtle or minimal but I'm sure most people won't notice it. However, it can be an element you need to think about when coordinating your colors and decor.

Sara Borgeson: The shows at Arena Stage are absolutely outstanding on so many levels! Give yourself a gift and get to one (or all) of their shows. I especially love all of the different stages they have at their disposal! The diversity they bring to the DC theatre scene is needed and absolutely wonderful. 5 stars, highly recommend!!

Jane L: I see maybe two shows a year here, but I've also been to yoga with the American Pops, Arena Community Day, and DC Theater Week Kick Off events. I have enjoyed all of them! Fichandler Stage is in the round and sometimes I worry that it will be weird watching from behind the actors but they move enough that you see everyone fine and it gives you a different perspective, like you are actually part of the show. I just saw Newsies and it was amazing! The sound is not that great but the singing and dancing are wonderful. My seat was on the West side, Row D near aisle 5 and I thought it was perfect. I didn't have to strain my neck up or down. I got to the theater early so I decided to visit the cafe for chocolate cake and coffee. Both were pretty terrible. I recommend going elsewhere beforehand or bringing your own coffee.

Sushila Nair: I love Arena stage. There are a several relatively small theaters and a restaurant. The restaurant is very reasonably priced but the food has a slight cafeteria edge. The theatre is relatively new and modern. You get a good view from almost any seat. It is walking distance from the metro and right next door to a parking building. They have valet parking right at the entrance of the theatre for $25 which is very handy when you are late. The plays are mostly modern with a sprinkling of musicals. If you sign up for email they sometimes do discounts and they often have pay your age.evenings. On the whole I have yet to see something that I didn't like at Arena and more often than not I have seen something that I loved. There is a nice Indian restaurant and modern American at the Station which are walking distance.

Andrea Wu: I came here to watch Seven Guitars on a Friday night recently, and the venue was quite awesome. I got under 30 tickets right a few hours just before the show, and they checked for covid vaccination and ID at the door. The venue was really clean and so were the bathrooms. The stage was unique as the audience sat all around the stage, really cool! The show itself was just alright as the story was slow in the beginning but picked up at the end. Cool spot though!

MJ Bryant: Always entertaining! Plays cover historical events, places and people. Casts are extraordinary, realistic and take time to listen to audience after the plays. Awesome venue. Covid safety precautions.

AMC Magic Johnson Capital Center 12: what do users think?


Danny: My main issue was when I was playing at the toy machine: My daughter wanted a specific toy so I changed a $20 to play because she wanted the toy and I wanted to make her day special. The game was the Master Key where you have to aim the key at a hole and knock it down basically. So I started playing and let my wife and daughter play as welI. We had tried several times but didnt win anything (lost almost $7 or 8 bucks). When we finally won, the toy dropped but got stuck in the machine. Aparently they had trash inside the machine. So we went to customer service and they told me right way there's nothing they couldve done without even listening attentively to what we had to say. They said they didn't have access to those machine, another company did even though those machine are part of their business. All they could do was give us $1 dollar back because that is what one try cost. At least they could've give me the $7 or 8 dollars we lost trying to win the prize and get the machine out of service. There were other details regarding customer service as well such as lack of attentiveness and welcoming. I won't go back at least those things are resolved!

Sumanth Reddy: I have travelled like an hour to watch Jurassic world film here in the Imax, while the screen itself is of great quality, it’s not a big screen , actually smaller than Cinemark XD screen. The 3D glasses provided were smudgy and so bad that they have ruined entire movie watching experience, unlike what they claim to make the movie watching experience greater. I’m a Cinemark regular, but wanted to have the IMAX experience, and beyond disappointed. The seats are horrendous, sticky and had some crawling sensations. The theater was so dirty, rest rooms were like never been cleaned, makes me never want to return here. Sound was good but loud.

Tabatha V. Torres, LICSW: Was hoping upgrades had been made to this theatre considering the amount of construction currently going on in the area, but no. Customer service is poor/nonexistent. The seats remain tattered with holes in the upholstery and many were broken. Theater 7 was in disgusting condition for todays Jurassic Park 2:30pm showing with the cup holders filled with garbage and trash across the floors. We definitely won’t be returning to this location and would much rather travel to a location further out that’s in better condition.

D'Neen Ross: It has been a very long time since I visited this theater. My adult niece had a child free day, so we hung out that day and saw "The 355." It was a good action-packed movie about female secret agents from around the world who team up for a mission. The theater was clean, quiet, and not crowded whatsoever. I am happy to see that this black owned establishment is still standing after all the construction that has occurred around it.

Noah Absalom: Cloes at 11pm has an arcade awesome concessions tickets are $11 On week days Six dollars on Tuesday

Erich Roney: Superb movie sound, good quality picture, and almost nothing else positive to say... First impressions are sure to deceive as you walk into a beautiful building. Once you enter you'll encounter a staff that is generally uninterested in making your experience pleasant. The concessions staff didn't bother to stop their private conversation to acknowledge my presence. The bathrooms are by far the worst I've seen. They are in disrepair: found a rotten sheet of plywood left on the sink area, stall doors have water damage, some sinks didn't work at all, only 1 soap dispenser actually dispensed soap, etc... The sound is excellent and picture is good (would be better but some screens are stained), and the cleaning crew seems eager to get the theater cleaned between screenings. Overall, this a failure at the leadership level. Employees need guidance, and I'm sure it's easy to get complacent at this type of job. I have been to this location multiple times, but have never seen a manager. At any rate, go for the movie but if you enter the bathroom, you probably won't return.

DayDay Baker: The movie theater was great that was my second time going there and me and my family saw sonic 2 and we seen Jurassic Dominion. I reccomend checking out those two movies also for the family. My only complaint is that when we got seated the movie was dark I couldn't hardly see.

Parker Kelley: I wasn’t that impressed with this theatre. The location itself appeared to be very old and seemed to have a ton of wear and tear. The bathrooms were filthy & the staff weren’t the nicest. This was my first time back to the theatre since pre-COVID & I was not impressed. The theatre was completely empty & I’m not sure if it’s due to the movie we saw or everyone else knew not to come to this location.

Joetta Ervins: A nice theater warm and inviting. Staff professional and friendly. Top Gun was a great movie. Two reasons to visit this theater.

Beverly McCalop: Clean, hot, fresh popcorn. I wish they would limit number of patrons in a row of seats for covid precautionary measures.

GALA Hispanic Theatre: what do users think?


estebcuece: They don’t respect seating assignments. End up in a corner with poor visibility when we had reserved much better seats.

Sandy Ovalle: It’s easy to access! I love supporting local art and this place has a lot of history. They are keeping masks on which I support. I was there for the screening of La Manplesa and loved the experience. They validate parking, but our ticket didn’t work.
Response: Thank you for your review. We are really sorry about the validation issue.

Tan Sav: Small theatre. I thought the stage design was excellent. Sound got a bit loud here and there otherwise excellent. Centrally located near the metro and restaurants.

Rosana Barkawi: Almost 3 hrs of singing and dancing. Made my heart smile 😊

Brandon Johnson: Went here twice in a weekend for the reel affirmations film festival. Very nice space that keeps the charm of an old theater while still being updated.

Frank Canales: An entity that contributes to keep our culture flourishing.

Brian M: Great venue. The table church has a service here every morning on Sunday. Great acoustics, ample seating but I will say it’s a little tight. Cute lobby. On site parking is available.

Jean Horner: Went on a 3rd grade field trip, saw a play about Picasso. Perfect content for the kids, emphasized he zest for life and living to the fullest. Bilingual production. Really in impressed. Located downtown DC. Rough commute for showtime, got stuck in am traffic. Lovely theater, small and intimate, but professional.

Karen L: Have not seen a bad production here. Some I have liked more than others, but the theater is intimate and comfortable. Pick a higher seat if your Spanish is rusty. The subtitles worked well for my non-Sp friends.

Soky Losada: Great venue, one of the hidden gems in DC. Amazing production with local artists. I went to see Exquisite Agony, (Exquisita Agonía) if you don’t speak Spanish they have subtitles in English projected onto two screens. Fascinated by the high level of the Artists, definitely I will come back for more.
