Frequently Asked Questions
in addition to AMC, Regal, and Cinemark, the Bay area also has Alamo Drafthouse, Landmark Theaters, Westwind Drive-Ins, and other independent venues.
The Roxie is a Vintage movie theater, dating back to 1912. While it provides virtual cinema, we recommend visiting in person for an authentic experience. Instead of new releases, The Roxie is the place to go for Indy films, shorts, and unique screenings.
Yes. West Wind has a few drive-ins – in San Jose and Concord. There are also The Proxy Outdoor Cinema and pop-up outdoor screenings.
Every time you turn around, another movie theater is expanding its service to include full meals and cocktails. But Alamo Drafthouse is a pioneer in the industry, opening its first dine-in movie theater in Austin, Texas in 1997. Alamo Drafthouse theaters have tables that line each row with little mini lights so you can order up those warm chocolate chip cookies midway through the flick. Full meals and drinks are delivered right to your seat.
