Sit back and enjoy a feature film at the coolest spots in town.

Whether you're a fan of blockbusters, indie flicks or the classics, there is a theater in Dallas for every movie lover out there.

Angelika Film Center

For those with a devotion to all things indie, the Angelika is where you belong. Located in Mockingbird Station, this eight-screen movie theater is dedicated to bringing independent and art films to Dallas. If you’re wanting to see something more mainstream, no problem – they provide that as well. After seeing your movie, relax with glass of wine or an espresso at the café while engaging in thoughtful discussion with your friends.

Alamo Drafthouse - Dallas/Fort Worth

This ever-expanding cinema chain originated in Austin and now has two locations in Dallas; there’s one in the Cedars neighborhood and another in Lake Highlands. Die-hard movie fans keep coming back because of their strict cinemagoing policy, reserved seating and wide selection of food and drink. Check out screening events for mainstream flicks, indie movies, oldies and cult classics.

The Magnolia

Tucked in the middle of West Village awaits the Magnolia, an indie lover’s paradise. This small gem of a cinema screens unique and independent films and has a full bar attached to it to enjoy before or after a viewing. The theater is surrounded by plenty of shopping and restaurant options, making it the perfect area for a day trip with family or friends.

The Texas Theatre

Located in Oak Cliff, the Texas Theatre is not just any old cinema, but is also a Dallas landmark. This is the historic site where Harvey Lee Oswald, the man who assassinated John F. Kennedy, was arrested. Appropriately, the theater is now home primarily to horror films and the classics. You can also catch the occasional art house film or concert. And don’t forget to pop into the bar for a cocktail before you leave!

Highland Park Village Theatre

Intimate in size and elegant in feel, Highland Park Theatre is a great escape from large and over-crowded movie theaters. Alongside screenings of the most talked about Hollywood movies, you’ll have access to free valet and a bar and lounge on the ground floor. Make it a date night by adding on dinner at a nearby restaurant – there’s various option in Highland Park Village, including the popular Bistro 31. Highland Park Village is a member of VisitDallas.

Inwood Theatre

From big blockbusters to cult classics, Inwood Theatre has something for everyone. This art deco-themed cinema is a funky spot in Inwood Village that has been bringing entertainment to the public for years. Be sure to grab a drink from the bar and catch a movie in the screening lounge, a giant theater full of comfy couches to cuddle with your person.
