    A historical monument, the Grand Lake Theatre is the place to go if you want to see films. It is surrounded by restaurants ranging from Thai to Cuban food. A wonderful way to spend an evening!

    Going to a theater like this is refreshing! I love the curtains hiding the screen until it's showtime. I was expecting to pay a premium to watch a movie in a historic theater, but matinees are only $7. Parking nearby is kind of a pain, but not impossible.

    I haven't gone to this theater in a while, until a couple days ago. We came here to watch Despicable Me 2 in 3D!!!

    That i really love about this theatre is that its super spacious, its not usually super crowded, not a lot of ghetto kids running their mouths during the movie, and that old school vibe.

    This is definitely an old theater. Some places will smell a bit funky, and the bathrooms can get a bit crazy....(paper EVERYWHERE)...

    There aren't a lot of screens, so usually i think there are 5-6 movies playing, and that's nothing compared to Century or AMC.

    People here are very friendly.

    Matinee is 7 bucks until 5, and 11 afterwards! What a good deal!!

    Parking here is a bit crazy as well, so make sure u arrive early. All street parking!

    Go to the movies in Roaring Twenties style - you're treated to a live performance on their Mighty Wurlitzer organ in the beautiful, art deco main downstairs auditorium on Friday and Saturday nights.

    One of my favorite theaters of all time. It has the old-school curtain drap over the screen in the main theater. Throughout the theater there are a ton of old film cameras and memorabilia. They give you free popcorn during the week, so make sure to check the schedules. It's in a great location, so if you are planning on a day for dinner and a movie with friends or loved ones, it's the perfect spot to go to.

    Really cool theater, be sure to check out the main theater -- preferably watch a film there, but even if your film is in another smaller theater, pop your head in for a quick peak. Owner is also a really cool guy. Political, with a string left bend. Is always putting up controversial statements on the marquee. Yes!

    This is the Grand Old Lady of East Bay Movie Theaters. I especially enjoy a Friday night movie on the main stage with the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ and the Big Screen. The political messages on the marque are also thought provoking. However, parking in this neighborhood can be a little dicey.
