1005 S Lamar St, Dallas, Texas, USA, 75215

Serves meat, vegan options available. Texas movie theater chain serving food and alcoholic drinks seat-side. Vegans will be able to find some things to eat, such as the regular popcorn (without butter), salad and wrap with tofu (request vegan), the veggie patty (vegan) substituted in any burger, cauliflower wings. Staff will omit or add ingredients upon request. Suggested to show up 30 minutes prior to movie time to make your order.

Cold beer, great films, vegan options! - Edit

First off this is a movie theater for movie lovers, by movie lovers that also happens to serve food. It has an upstairs patio and restaurant space called Vetted Well. There are karaoke rooms to rent upstairs and one of the best outdoor patios to see downtown. Upstairs is wheelchair accessible through an antique brass elevator. Has a great little photo booth downstairs. Building set up is weird but either door you come in is an entrance trust me! Super close to deep ellum and the DART runs close by. Next door to Gilleys/ Southside ballroom so come early if they have a show going on there!

Vegan buffalo Cauliflower with house made Vegan Ranch is great! If you get the Tofu so a noodle salad, (get the dressing on the side).They do offer gluten free burger buns and pizza dough. Pizza dough is vegan but not the buns. If you want "pizza" ask for kids cheese- no cheese, no parm- and add whatever veggies.It's nice being able to go anywhere that has more than just a salad option for vegans! They are really cool about modifying menu items.

They open the movie theater 30 mins before the movie ticket time and there's a pre-show that's usually related to the movie. Lots of Texas craft beers but also has wine/cocktails/sodas. They sometimes have special screenings for guests ( they had part of the cast from Rocky Horror do a q&a). Tuesday's are taco tuesdays and they offer a vegan Tofu scramble taco. If you ask or write ( they use order cards to communicate during movies to servers) Texas Tuesday its 3$ Texas draft beers too! There's another location in Richardson with the same food options! They have an app so you can reserve your seat in advance. Cool place, neat decor. Love not having to fight for a decent seat! The more vegans come and ask for options the more options they will get!

Pros: Cool atmosphere/ decor, Great films, Good food and beer

Cons: Layout can be confusing, Not enough dessert/ candy options, No seating in downstairs hallway
