This place is awesome! The servers are wonderful and very friendly. The food is decent and well-priced.

Commodore Theatre: Dinner and a Movie

A 1940s renovated/restored movie house. The attraction? A vintage movie house, plus if you sit down on the main floor, it's a dine-in! You sit on cushy chairs with wheels, at a table. You can order off the menu up to showtime -- order by using the phone at the table! Great food, great prices: even popcorn and candy! The movie house shows first-run movies, and other live events.

[Bobbi Arnold, 06/13/2003]

The Commodore was built in 1945, late Art Deco-style. It's recommended that you call ahead for seat availability, but no advance reservations are taken. Friday and Saturday nights are the busiest.
