Avoid common movie-going maladies, such as popcorn paucity, soda scantiness, and sticky-shoe syndrome with today’s Groupon to Bijou Cinema Bistro. For $9, you’ll get a ticket to any show, a large bucket of popcorn, and a 32-ounce soda (an $18 value with an adult ticket) to this swank Balcones Heights art-flick hotspot that's recognized as one of San Antonio’s best by San Antonio Current and San Antonio Express-News. It's the perfect alternative to a traditional Valentine's Day spent at a demolition derby.

Like a shot of espresso injected into your heart, Bijou Cinema Bistro packs a potent punch. In addition to being one of San Antonio’s only indie-focused theaters, Bijou is part of the family-owned, Texas-based Santikos movie-theater chain. The theater boasts versatile show times that make it convenient to swoon over the radiating charm of Penélope Cruz in Broken Embraces or marvel at Nicolas Cage’s wild-eyed portrayal in Bad Lieutenant while enjoying a refreshing beer or latte at your seat (films subject to change). With an on-site restaurant and art gallery, you’ll be able to fuse cultural cultivation with the expedience of one-stop shopping while deftly impressing your artist-moonlighting-as-efficiency-expert date.

For indecisive daters, multi-taskers, and movie-trailer aficionados, celebrating cinema’s barrier-smashing aptitude won’t get any easier than this. With elegant décor, a refined crowd, and upscale movie-theater fare, Bijou is a great spot for enjoying a night out while shedding cinematic affectations and art-house pretension.

Santikos Theatres

Greek immigrant Louis Santikos founded his first movie theater in San Antonio in 1911, when silent moving pictures of train robberies and slapstick comedy were an exciting novelty. Today, the thriving regional theater empire continues the family tradition of dazzling audiences with attractions such as IMAX sensory journeys.

Santikos's expansive theaters house up to 19 screens of first-run cinematic entertainment at some locations. Equipped with popcorn and sodas, moviegoers can nervously munch and sip their way through every pulse-pounding car chase, tragic missed connection, or gripping montage of drying paint. Screenings in 3-D of select films are brought to life by the gloriously immersive illuminations of Xpand 3-D projectors.

All things good

Love this place
Farris W. · August 30, 2015
Recently visited The Rialto Santikos Theatre in San Antonio. The service, cleanliness, and refreshment options were the top best things about the Theatre. What I also liked was the height of the food bars in the theaters because they were low enough for my children to see over them.The wait staff did not interrupt the showing but were available anytime throughout the show for service. I highly recommend!
