    I have driven by this classic looking movie house for decades. I think I may have been in this theater way back in the 1970's before it was closed down. But I have never been inside it since it was renovated and reopened around a ten years ago. The Academy Theater goes back to 1948 and it still has that great distinctive look of a grand movie house with its distinctive two story dome and classic marquee. Inside the theater has three small theaters. The seats are very comfortable reclining seats with high backs and clear view of the screen. So you are seeing the screen and not the audience in front and in back of you. And you have great legroom as well. You can purchase drinks that include a wide range of beers and a few ciders. I ordered Seattle Cider to go with my medium popcorn. Together both cost around $9. The movies screened at the Academy change every Friday. They show special event films and recent films that are almost first run. And the prices are very attractive for those looking for a bargain. It's $4 for Adults, $3 for Seniors 65+, and $3 for children 12 years and under. They have Double Feature Monday where you can watch any two consecutive movies for $6 for adults and $4 for children and seniors. The best offer they have is Two For Tuesday where you can pay for one ticket and get another ticket for free. Great for couples or for a parent bringing their child to see a movie with them.

    I came here on Mother's Day with my daughter. There are no independent theaters where I live so this was a treat! Friendly staff, wide selection of affordable food and beverages including local coffees, teas, salads, etc. Admission was a positive bargain at $4, and there was a good selection of movies playing. Comfy seats and quiet atmosphere. Would love to come back and spend some time exploring the neighborhood as well.

    I have been here many times and I am finally reviewing it. This theater is located in Montavilla and is only 3/4 mile walk for me. They show features that have left the main theaters and at a fraction of the cost. There are three screens and they usually have 6 movies playing with generally one family friendly movie and one "classic" in a series. Right now they are doing a science fiction series and this week was 2001 a Space Odyssey, in 35 mm. They offer babysitting for a fee on the weekends which seems to be unique to this theater. They have a good food selection including pizza from Flying Pie and a variety of beer on tap. There are a few specials. Mondays you can see 2 consecutive movies for the price of one and Tuesdays is a 2 for 1 special. Prices for regular movies is $4!! After the movie you can dine at one of the Montavilla restaurants or a cocktail at Vintage, across the street.

    The Academy Theater is a wonderful place to see movies that have left the main stream theaters. For a fraction of the cost, you can see a movie in a nice theater (comfortable seating) and enjoy a variety of concession stand items from pizza, sushi, beer and wine. If you are feeling healthy, there is salad and fruit as well. Although I haven't tried it, babysitting is available at a pretty low cost. This is a nice theater in a great neighborhood.
