Movies 8’s towering vertical sign flashes its red letters and pastel colors at passersby, enticing them to step inside and enjoy a night at the cinema. In the lobby, black-and-white checkered tiles, pink and orange walls, and neon signs hark back to the 1950s, when ladies often wore polka-dot dresses and gentlemen still slicked back their pompadours with crude motor oil. Before feasting their eyes on recently released blockbusters stretched across the silver screen, moviegoers line up at the snack counter, where an old-fashioned menu displays the theater’s bounty of popcorns, snacks, and drinks. Once movies let out, guests can test their button-mashing mettle in Movies 8’s arcade, which has its own separate nook.

Midtown Pass shows their hometown pride with walls covered with FSU memorabilia and a working scoreboard showing the score for the Seminoles latest game.

As its name suggests, Poor Paul’s Pourhouse provides patrons exclusively with pourables including beer, cocktails, and shots. The bar features a number of freebies such as dartboards with steel-tip darts, four pool tables, and Thursday-night trivia. On Sundays and Mondays, the staff complements drinks with slices of free Gumby’s pizza. The interior features classic, unpretentious wood accents that suggest a recreational haven more than a stuffy boardroom. High-backed wood booths broadcast their coziness and ability to promote posture better than a drill sergeant teaching first graders to the drinkers reveling under understated track lighting. Owner Jim Smith has been preserving this familiar bar atmosphere since taking it over in 1976.
