Debbie was great, both on the phone and in person - very friendly and helpful. We went for the xbox room, but plan to go there to see movies now. Very reasonably priced and a nice theatre.

I thought it weird that people skipped the main event and came back to the house for video games but everyone hates the theater's new management and as a result only 4 people showed up to my birthday party. I didn't know it was so unpopular or I would have gone elsewhere. It was pretty lame to have a party where your friends can't being food or a birthday cake. Had I known the gaming parties were only scheduled before the theater opens or after closing, instead of between movie showings, I would not have wasted my money. We were looking forward to playing a split-screen game on a big screen but the theater is small and the resolution was fuzzy so it wasn't even as good as playing at home.

The available dates for the video gaming were very limited.

This is a great Privately owned business, so you know you're staying local when you go here. Help support the mom n pops not the big box theaters.

The event organizer was very helpful and easy to speak with. The event was booked easily as long given enough time to schedule. I would definitely go there again.

This was a great idea. Never seen anything like it. The food was great and the theater clean. I will be coming back again and again. Great hospitality from Debbie as well. That can not go overlooked. Made us feel at home.

I've been there for movies before and their prices are great! I never would have even gotten the idea of going there for a video game birthday party without the Groupon advertising. Everything went great! Kids loved it. Food prices were reasonable. Thank you!

From Our Editors

As recently as 2009, Buffalo Grove Theater was still a sub-run theater, drawing in audiences with lower-priced films whose opening weekends were a few months past. These days, however, the theater is the best of both worlds, sticking to its lower prices while hosting screenings of just-released Hollywood films. The move cemented its place as a favorite community hangout CBS Chicago called it “one of the northwest suburbs best-kept secrets” in a roundup of the Best Indie Movie Theaters in Chicago.

The on-screen entertainment isn't limited to movies: at private parties, gamers can play their favorite Xbox titles on one of the Buffalo Grove's big screens. Fun inside the five-auditorium theater continues off-screen with free kids' egg hunts every Easter, which complement the free dropped-piece-of-popcorn hunts that take place year-round.
