As someone that has watched a ton of movies in his life I've become pretty particular about where I watch them. Some of these picks are sentimental and some are because they are just awesome Movie Theatres. Here we go in no particular order...
- •Alamo Drafthouse CinemaWhat can I say? It's the new king. Besides the social guilt of watching a movie at this new theatre due to arrival of the "New San Francisco" This theatre has everything a movie fan could want. Bar? Check. DVD & Book Store ? Check. Great food? Check. Arrive late? Too bad motherfucker you can't come in. On your phone during the movie ? Fuck that I'll narc on you. This is sacred ground and I love it.
- •Sundance KabukiI have a fond memory when this place was just called the Kabuki. I watched Can't Hardly Wait and This theatre might have been where in the 8th grade I worked up the nerve to put my arm around a girl. Gangsta. In more recent memory it's just been an awesome place to grab a drink with a friend or group of friends, talk shit and then enjoy a flick. Booze + Movies = Happiness
- •AMC MetreonI remember when The Metreon was the spot in the city. It had a PlayStation Store and an Arcade. It has a wonderful city view and it's located right in the heart of the city. Not only that but it has a REAL IMAX screen not that other bullshit that the other Bay Area theatres are hustling their customers with. If you want a true event/blockbuster experience go to an IMAX show opening night or even better during a midnight screening.
