I watched 2 classic Halloween movies here in night of Halloween. We had a blast. It's an old theatre and you can sit on old desk chairs. You can order simple foods (we ordered a pizza) - much more relaxed than the real movie theaters.

I'm rating one singular event, not the atmosphere of actually seeing a movie or eating there. I enjoyed some standup comedy one evening with friends. While we were late, there was till standing room. We crammed in there and stood around for about an hour...More

I love this place. Where else can you watch a movie that's not ancient and snack on decent bar food and have some wine or cocktail with that. The seats are comfortable (not movie seats), just more like office chairs around a table. The ticket...More

Visited AC/DH for the first time this weekend to catch a comedy show and had a very enjoyable experience. Some of the reviewers on here have been critical of the service, but given the the setup and the nature of the business, I can understand....More
