I don’t get the chance to go here often, but when I do I really enjoy myself. CineBistro is great. The food is just alright, the drinks are okay and the experience is even better. There’s lots of space and room for legs to stretch out and the seats are relaxing. I do wish the movie selection was better. They also take a while to order you get ready to start the movie. Occasionally, they are still bringing in food as the movie begins and I’d rather have mine before it starts. Sometimes they just don’t offer the films that I want to see. Additionally, the price point is a bit expensive in comparison to a regular movie visit so this place is only for date night or rare girls night. I’ll go back but will definitely eat before hand and just have a drink.
I love Village Theater! It is one of the smaller and more intimate comedy theaters in Atlanta, but that's what makes it so great. Awesome comedians (there are a few regulars that are my favorites) and normally a great crowd. It's an improv theater, and they also teach improv classes that anyone can sign up for. You can purchase beer/wine and some snacks in the lobby before the show and at intermission - the alcohol is pretty cheaps, so load up! You can also purchase whole bottles and share with your group which is nice. Easy, free parking behind the theater as well!
Buckhead Backlot, now named Buckhead Fork and Screen, is a great theater to watch a movie. Not only do you get to sit in comfortable lounge chairs, but waiters bring you food, from hamburgers and alcohol to popcorn in a bowl. If you don't have time for dinner and a movie, you can do both at the same time here. And even if you aren't hungry, the comfortable lounge chairs make for a better experience than stiff standard movie theater seats where someone tall in front of you may block part of your view.
It's gotta be tough to run a movie theater in this economy. So I applaud Georgia Lafont for giving this venue a try after so many others have failed in this location. But if anyone remembers George's Garden Hills theater, they'll remember how dirty it was. Well he's Sandy Springs location is not far behind. Please George up your game! Clean the carpet, repaint, and how about putting tablecloth on the tables. I will say it's nice to be able to have wine served but do wish it was not so bloody expensive.
This place has really turned around! Yes, it used to be gross and have smelly carpet. But they have revamped it and expanded their menu/bar selection. It isn't getting a 5 star review because of the poor service the wait staff offers. It's a nice system (push a button and someone is paged to your table), but doesn't work in practice and I don't know why. I ended up waiting 20 minutes to order a hot chocolate mid movie. Get your drinks before hand!
I know theaters suffer losses when people are illegally allowed in movie theater, but if a fire breaks out in this theater, you could die. I watched the manager for the day LOCK the emergency door in our theater.. he even checked to make certain it wouldnt open.. the theater is actually ok.. I just hope there is no problem with the wiring.. cause the likelyhood of you getting out before smoke consumes you is nil
You can't ask for a better place to catch a movie. Actually you could but they seemed to have thought of it already and now offers a VIP movie experience. Adults only with food and alcohol service. I can't wait to go back and take advantage of that. Overall the theater is clean, the staff friendly & nice and they will validate your parking ticket for you. It's a win win situation going to the movies here.
Yeah, this theater has waiters and serves popcorn in bowls and hamburgers and fries and all that good stuff. But the real reason to go here is the seating. Instead of small, cramped theater seats with tall people in front of you blocking your view, you get comfy lounge chairs. These seats swivel and move and are much more comfortable than normal seating.
Fun night. Guaranteed. We have been to 3 plays and all of them were awesome. The staff are great and welcoming. The actors are true talents. Great place for quality theatre at a more than reasonable price. Currently playing is The City of Conversation and trust me you will be having major conversations with people after this play.
I have been to this theater a number of times and I always have a blast. The comedy is irreverent and interactive and you get FREE BEER if you suggest a funny comedy skit idea! The actors/comdedians are students so some are better than others, but they are always fresh and fun. I agree a good place for a date.
