Dallas, known for its art scene, also has a bold palate of movie theaters. Offering some of the most unique accommodations and high-tech features contrasted with historical Texas decor and sometime art deco architecture, these Dallas theaters are perfect to choose from while having a night out on the town. Read ahead for our guide to the best theaters in Dallas, Texas.
Landmark’s Inwood Theater
Landmark’s Inwood Theater is unlike regular movie theaters. With 66 years of history, a glorious neon sign and a great selection of both independent and foreign films, the theater is a favorite of Dallas locals. But what puts it on the map is their large couches, love seats called Love Sacs and beanbag chairs with pillows that replace regular theater chairs making it an upscale venture for high cinema. After 5PM, you can hang out in the lounge and take your beer into the theater with you. Don’t forget to catch the midnight screenings of some of your favorite cult classics!

They also have a slew of homemade cocktails inspired by films that you can take into the theater with you.
