The theater plays some mainstream movies but also independent films. You can also get a beer, wine or drink (they cost too much but it is still a nice option). The location is also great. Next to Pacugo so you can start out with some ice cream. It is also surrounded by good restaurants and the most lively part of... More

Mark Cuban gets involved with a lot of things and is a forward thinker as exhibited by this theater. It hosts lots of film festivals as well as newer, not so usual movies as well as block busters. And the food and drink available makes it a new grown up experience.

When I go home to D/FW for a visit, I also like to catch up on films I haven't seen. It's a great break between spending times with friends. The theater always has the best independent films. Great location and great facility.

Its so nice and quiet i just wished they show mainstream movies so i can enjoy the atmosphere all the time. I would never buy their concessions though because their ridiculously priced.

We have lived near the Magnolia since its opening. It is walking distance, so is attractive from that perspective. I love indie films, and having a cinema walking distance from home is fantastic. The facility is beginning to show wear (stairs/escalator desperately need cleaning), and what was a memorable bar area seems to be drifting and inconsistent in staffing/service. With... More

You can bring your own vine and glasses and have a romantic movie night. They show great movies and have friendly staff.
