  • Oak Cliff
    For moviegoers interested in becoming a part of Dallas’ history, the Texas Theatre will take you there. Located on Jefferson Blvd., the movie house is where Lee Harvey Oswald was found by police after Kennedy’s assassination, and back in 1931 it was the first area theatre built for talking pictures. These days, the Texas Theatre focuses on independent and classic films, and has garnered plenty of local praise for its nightly screenings. Inside, the stucco features and cozy bar area have been touched up over the years, but the old marquee still glows out front. With a few quiet pre-show lounge spaces and room in the theater for around 650, the Texas Theatre is a wonderful mix of old and new, big and small, just south of downtown Dallas.

  • Spring Valley
    Within Studio Movie Grill's expansive auditoriums, towering screens enrapture audiences seated in plush leather recliners and at dining tables. As the familiar celebrity faces in blockbuster and cult-classic features deliver Oscar-worthy lines, sneakily quiet waiters deliver meals from a full menu decorated with more than 100 items, including gourmet pizzas, smoked ribs, and cocktails infused with the spirit of Daniel Day-Lewis. Bartenders at the lobby bar dole out glasses of premium liquors, wines, and draft beer before and after shows.

  • Broken Gears Project Theatre
    With an ambitious repertoire that mixes ancient classics with groundbreaking new plays, Broken Gears Project Theatre puts on socially conscious spectacles aimed at challenging both spectator and performer. Creditors, on view through March 3, is a darkly comic tale of how old debts can reopen old wounds. Running March 17–26, The Magadalen Whitewash explores a dark chapter in Irish history when women were forced into abusive convents for becoming pregnant outside of marriage. Between April 21 and May 8, players don masks for a take on Sophocles' ancient Greek melodrama Oedipus The King, but utilize multimedia techniques to give it a decidedly modern feel. Finally, La Mano (The Hand) presents a magical realist fable about a rich man that buys a hand on the black market, and the original owner who wants it back, from June 6–26.

  • Texas Theatre
    Did you know that, on average, 88% of the seats in a movie theater remain empty during a showing? According to the New York Times, this phenomenon really surprised Sean Wycliffe a few years back when he went to see the Oscar-winning film The King's Speech and shared the theater with only two other audience members. With all the focus on online video services, Sean realized movie theaters were being overlooked, and came up with a concept that could help movie houses fill their empty seats. His brainchild became Dealflicks, a website that offers customers discounted tickets (sometimes with popcorn or soda) for same-day showings. Customers shop a selection of deals, each of which is specific to a particular film, theater, and showtime, and upon purchase, receive an email voucher they present at the theater's ticket counter. Dealflicks is partnered with theaters around the country, particularly independent and neighborhood venues, such as the treehouse of the enterprising kid down the street.

  • The Kessler Theater
    Located close enough to the Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff to be conveniently considered a cool location in Winnetka Heights, The Kessler Theater sits on the corner of Davis Street and touts a colorful marquee and equally vibrant history. It’s the lime green and yellow brick art deco look you’ll notice first, while the façade and dusty red signage draw the eyes further. Inside is a more traditional rock venue, long and dim and pulsing with energy during performances that belie its early beginnings as a humble single-screen movie house. Today, the 70 year old venue stands tall as a venue for popular touring acts, while still playing true to its heritage – one of the eight-seat suites is named after guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughn, a former Oak Cliff native.
