Movies are like dreams: they come to us in the dark, they play on our subconscious fears and desires, and the best ones prominently feature crime-fighting dinosaurs. Dim the lights for this Groupon.

Gateway Film Center

Even though the crimson neon sign recalls that of a classic movie theater, the stadium seating and digital-projection system of Gateway Film Center point toward a modern polish. The same can be said of the cinema’s choice of films, a mix of classic pictures, arthouse darlings, and Hollywood blockbusters. The film center is also home to The Torpedo Room, a new restaurant founded by Liz Lessner of Columbus Food League, along with popcorn, candy, and a full bar with more than 20 draft beers.


The theatre was small but cozy. Seats were made out of leather and very comfy. The whole building has a very friendly atmosphere.
