After a long day of walking around, both my mother and I were ready to relax. So going to the theater was a treat. We bought tickets in advance, which I recommend. As noted by others, price includes a drink and a bag of popcorn. The seats are comfortable (about 25 of them). Before the film we relaxed in front... More

I have been to this theater several times and have always enjoyed the movies, but have sometimes had unpleasant interactions with the woman at the front desk who takes your money, gives you the popcorn and drink, turns on the film, etc. She seems to enjoy nudging customers, and in general acts like you are doing her a favor by...

My husband and I showed up ten minutes before the posted time for a movie last night. The doors were closed, so my husband used the knocker to knock on the door (isn't that what knockers are for?). The woman came out and yelled at us for using the knocker, and told us that the theater was closed. We are... More

There are places in San Miguel where a Margarita costs more than the price of admission. For 120 pesos, you get admission to a recent movie, a drink (I highly recommend the Margarita), and a small bag of popcorn. There are two theatres but each has less than 30 seats. Most movies are in english but not all are... movies... More

I don't have much to add to the excellent reviews already posted, except to say that it did take us 10 days in SMA to find this place (online) and then another 30 minutes of wandering up and down the street to find the place (literally). I hadn't brought the address, assuming it would look like a theatre or that... More

Now costs 120 pesos. Nice enough place. Nice employees. Avoid the boss or you'll be in for a rude awakening, as most people in town know.
