This is one of our regular haunts when we go out to catch a movie. It's an old theater that has been well cared for and offers tables and comfy chairs to enjoy a meal, snack, beer and wine while enjoying the movie. My wife and I really enjoy this place.

The commodore has a great screen, incredible sound, really comfortable seating, and decent food. Best place to watch movies in Hampton Roads.

From the ability to have dinner, to experiencing the Dolby sound system and the grandeur of a renovated theater of the past, the Commodore is a special place! Downtown Portsmouth is walkable and has nice shops and old homes and several museums. You could spend a day exploring. We enjoy first run films here and visit often.

I go there often for dinner and a movie. I love the atmosphere. And being able to eat and talk with family and friends before the movie. Food is good and price okay. Well worth it.

I came to visit some friends in Virginia (I’m from England) and they brought me here one evening. The theatre itself is such a pleasant and unique experience and I really enjoyed the food. We watched The Avengers - the sound quality is incredible, better than anything I’ve experienced in the UK. I would definitely come back for a visit.
