Gotta love the Dobie. I mean, seriously, you are required by local ordinance to love the Dobie Theatre. Failure to do so will result in a $500 fine or three days in jail.

Dobie Theatre is a pretty decent theater. They show a decent amount of independent movie titles, as well as some others. They are a clean theater and prices are not as high as some theaters.

The Dobie Theater is located in the Dobie Mall, around the UT Austin campus area. They charge around $6-$8 per ticket, depending on the time of the movie. The have small, but cozy theaters, with unique detailing. The show many independant films, as well as cult classics, and show movies pretty much all night long.

As for theaters, this is very hard to get to as it is right off of UT's campus and the parking is awful. However, the lively Guadelupe Street Crowd makes it an interesting scene.

I've loved the Dobie theater ever since I came to Austin. They mainly show movies just a little out of the mainstream. Each screening room is whimsically decorated, adding an extra touch to a pleasant viewing experience.

PROS: Easy to reach by bus.
CONS: Not quite as friendly since bought out by Landmark.

Dobie offers movies that you will not encounter in normal chain theaters- some for better, some for worse. The theaters are okay, if small-- no frills really. The best thing about dobie theater is the concessions-- gourmet chocolate and coffee, and other strange but delicious treats. If you are looking for "war of the worlds" (tom cruise version) and peanut m&m's this is NOT the theater for you. Step outside the box though and give Dobie a try- you may be pleasantly surprised (if not by the movie, by the rittersport candy !)

Pros: movies, candy, clean toilets

Good films, nice people, quality projection and PERSONALITY! What so many other places lack, they've got heaps of at the Dobie. These people actually care about what they do. No apathetic teenagers and screaming brats. Unrated movies that the big chains won't touch. Lots of free parking, too.

Pros: Best films, Best staff, Coolest theatre ever

Set on the UT campus the Dobie Mall is not a typical mall, nore is the theater. It is great for a change from the average Holywood movie, there are all sorts of award winning independant films here. It is beautiful, old perhaps, but each room has it's own individual atmospher.

The theaters at the Dobie are small, but, this is the best place in town to catch indie and arthouse fare. I'd advise arriving early to get good seats. Also, don't forget to get your parking ticket validated. The folks in the adjacent garage can be a bit tyrannical about those pesky things.

. . . but there are some great quirky indie films that play there. When Hollywood's just under your skin, this is the best place to go for some great films.
