A little bit of the Great White Way can be found deep in the heart of Texas. Like the movie studio which shares its name, this theater is grandiose and ambitious with 1250 seats available to host an estimated 160,000 people a year. The calendar features both visiting and local stage productions of musicals and dramatic plays, one-person acts, orchestral performances, children's shows, revivals of great old movies and (because this is Austin) the occasional visiting live-music act. A horn of plenty for theater, music and entertainment fans.
Austin sure knows how to do movie theaters — between this place, the Alamo Drafthouse and others, if you can't find a suitable theater in this city then you simply don't like going to the movies. Violet Crown allows you to purchase your actual seats in advance, so you can show up just before showtime assured of sitting where you like. Before the show, order up some food and cocktails for your flick while you relax in the lounge awaiting their arrival. Intimate-sized theater rooms add a real communal feeling to the viewing experience. Check their website for showtimes.
Bob Bullock IMAX Theatre, located inside the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, has one big screen for your viewing pleasure! Equipped with an IMAX projector, you are sure to enjoy the 2-D and 3-D films. Although the days of a 35mm projector are long gone, it is still very much around here as the charm of the Bob Bullock IMAX Theatre lies in its screening of films using outdated technology. The lobby and the theatre can be rented for special events like lectures and presentations. For film times, ticket prices and further information, check out their website.
Take film-viewing to an all new level at the South Lamar location of the Alamo Cinema chain.

Galaxy Highland Cinema 10 has 10 screens for your viewing pleasure. For a more enjoyable experience, sit back and relax with popcorn and a soda from the refreshment stand. For film times, ticket prices and further information please see their website.
Technically, there are six Alamo Drafthouse locations in Austin. The popular belief is that, if you're in Austin and you want to see a movie, this is the place to be; it's a theater where you can order drinks and food from a strong menu to be served to you during the film (the aisles are wide enough to accommodate dining tables). Arrive one hour prior to showtime to find a good seat and to start ordering if you're going to dine heartily here - last call is 45 to 30 minutes before the movie ends.
If you've ever wished you could just go ahead and combine that dinner and a movie into one convenient location, head to iPic Theaters. iPic gives you all the atmosphere of an upscale, trendy lounge and restaurant with a luxurious movie viewing experience. Start your night in the Salt Lounge with a game of pool and a cocktail, or simply order a martini shaker or bucket of beer to take into the theater while you watch the latest blockbusters. As for the dinner portion, the Tanzy Express cooks up delicious meals like salads, sliders, pizzas and decadent desserts to enjoy before or during the show.
Sit back and recline in a spacious Reserved Seat or feel like you're part of the show as your D-Box Seat is synced to rocks and rolls with the action. If you want to make sure you see every detail reserve a spot in the Big House, the largest movie screen in the region. Plus, there is a full kitchen and concession stand so you can enjoy a meal while you enjoy a movie. After the show stop by the theater's bar to discuss the film over beer.
Located along the Interstate Highway, Flix Brewhouse is located about 15 miles (24.15 kilometers) from Austin proper. An amalgamation of draft beer joint and a movie theater, Flix takes the cake when it comes to great combination! The bar is located in the lobby of the cinema where movie patrons can relax while waiting for their flick to begin. On the offer are a range of draft beers like their signature brew, Satellite Red Ale, Lupulus Ipa and many more. Apart from these amazing brews, there is a great selection of quick bites to choose from, dig into delicious baked potato skins, mozzarella sticks and such; there are also some vegetarian and gluten free options on their menu.
