We love the Magnolia and the movies they play but the parking garage has the smallest, tightest spaces anywhere. It has to be a really great movie and only playing at the Magnolia for us to go.

Main stream movies and documentaries are shown at this theater. They serve popcorn, candy, snacks, hot tea and wine. We saw Hello my name is Doris. Cute movie.

Not sure how many seats were in the particular theater we were in. It was not too cold. It appears that most seats were good seats. We sat in the second section near the center. We had a good view, comfortable seats and the sound was good. There was a bar across from the concessions. The bartender was not able... More

The theater is conveniently located in the Uptown area of Dallas. Garage parking is very close by. Leather seats are very comfortable. Sound system is excellent.

We really loved catching a movie in this cinema. We were just passing through Dallas on the way home and happened upon this place - a great place to watch a movie. Prices were good and popcorn spectacular.

Such a fun place to go to view a movie. The bar is on the same movie level and you can take your drink in hand to watch the show. The theater is more reasonable than the mall AMC, very clean, excellent popcorn and comfortable seating.

I love my neighborhood theater! It is located in the heart of West Village in Uptown Dallas, which is conveniently surrounded by restaurants and boutiques. After an afternoon of shopping or dinner/ date night, you can walk up to the Magnolia Theater for a cozy movie showing. Assigned seating is an option, but not a requirement. They also have a...

Favourite place to see a movie. Boutique theatre with nice bar and great drinks! Really enjoy escaping reality and experiencing a movie here. Fairly priced and food is available.

Being a Landmark Theatre, we assumed it would be a historic building but discovered that instead it is like the other half of their theatres - independent and fun but very modern. That said it was pretty much like any other urban theatre where you enter and buy tickets on the first floor before taking the escalator up to the... More
