Keep it local with the real deal.
Fantastic and the ultimate contrast to the big box theatres. In preparation for this weekend's oscars, I have been on a quest to see as many movies as possible and have gone to many different theatres around town. This one is the real deal - local, independent, and unusually affordable. The popcorn is made fresh before your eyes, tastes great, and is served with toppings like brewer's yeast (my favorite) and parmesan cheese. For half the price I had twice as much fun and felt good about supporting a local business in my own neighborhood. If you want to be treated rudely and spend a fortune on crappy, stale popcorn and flat, watered down pop, continue to go to the chain theatres. But, if you want to have fun in a cool place with character and save tons of dollars in the process, go to Cinemagic!
The first name in East Indian action flicks.. In Short Hanging in there since the late '40s, Cinemagic survives by bringing in one quality film and running it for all it's worth. Independently owned, the theater has struggled in the past, and at one point almost went under. Today it offers good film picks and moderate prices, making it a solid neighborhood bet.
This is a charming old cinema that shows second run foreign and independant films in a very spacious theatre that even possesses rocking-chair comfort. Highly recommended if you missed the initial showing of a film that may have already played at more bland Regal cinema.
