I honestly made a last second decision to visit this theater. What a unique experience. Grabbed popcorn and a beer and sat in a front row recliner watching a cool new release. If you're in downtown Mobile, make this a priority. The owner introduces the...More

Walking through Dauphine Street in Mobile we stumbled across a small cinema that looked interesting enough to look inside. I'm glad we did; the proprietor runs the whole thing, he advised us to reserve recliners, pop out and come back for the 6 o'clock showing...More

This is a fantastic movie theater. It is a cozy place that seat 90ish folks. The best thing about the theater is the proprietor, Max Morey. He is a warm, inviting person that introduces every film. He selects wonderful films that are often not shown...More

This theater is located on Dauphin Street in downtown Mobile. The lobby is definitely no frills. Inside the theater is a small auditorium with each row of seats about six inches or so above the one in front. The view of the screen is good...More
