REVIEWS OF Theatre Box IN California

Erica Almanzar

Great location. Surrounded by many parking options. I visited the movie theatre on the second floor. Seats are comfortable/recline and each come with an attached tray for food/drinks as well as a service button. The first floor can be very busy/loud so if you like a more quiet environment I recommend enjoying a drink or a meal in the bar area on the second floor. I had the watermelon punch goblet which had just the right amount of sugar/sweetness which is made possible by adding the correct amount of ice to the beverage. Overall a very luxurious experience.

Daphne

Love the big goblet drinks ...

Caryssa Mack

It is waaaayyyy to hot in the main space

girlie mcgrath

Very nice experience! The theatre is very nice and appealing and the staff are nice as well

Kevin B

Great place for kids to experience.

Sarah D'Agostino

Absolutely bull that I have to pay $3.00 for a “booking fee” when I’m in the theater purchasing tickets. What kind of business punishes you for buying at the theater when I specifically did so to avoid online fees. I get this is a tourist town but people live here and tourists don’t see movies while they’re visiting.

Randy Silvia

Theater is great! Restaurant is not so. Very slow. But the food was good.

Michelle

Nice comfy, lots of food options n crazy looking cocktails, will b back for date night!!

Elle Hernandez

Simply awesome got to eat, drink such a great venue so glad were lucky enough to have it in Downtown SD now!! Great experience

Donna Mia Lynott

What ..? This is not what downtown San Diego is intrested in going to! Really...? Sugar...restaurant and bars. Candy every where and no kids in sight! We sat down in our assigned seats that were soaked by the last movie goers soda and the food tray was covered in food that had not been cleaned off. Like being seated at a dirty table at a nice restaurant. Yuck! So silly us, we ordered wine and a bag of popcorn (a perfect Christmas meal) and we got cold, stale popcorn and warm, cheap white wine. Hummmm! Clueless help, aimless movie goers, out of order escalators (5 stories) and unfinished construction everywhere! Sorry investors/management...you can't change a first impression! Don't waste your time San Diego... Try the LOT in Liberty Station instead!

This theater is awesome, the drinks are delicious, a bit expensive but amazingly good, the seats are also super comfortable and the service is top notch, the sound it is also one of the best, I will be coming back again.

lydia murphy

The ac was off in the theater the whole movie, it was stifling. The bathroom floors were sticky and nothing was stocked. Second time here, the first time was great but that was opening week.

Roy Ibarra

Theatre was good! Food was salty, right now you get free movies for checking in on Yelp.

Tia Nix-Abram

Great location, I of course had to park in the mall lot but it was labor day weekend sooo... ($18 this time in particular...but usually$20) if you don't mind the short 6 min.walk that part is ok! Theatre was clean and definitely luxurious with those prices. It was a great experience regardless, the seats were really comfortable and it was not freezing

I love this theater's atmosphere. The drinks are great and their deals are fantastic. However, the service needs a ton of improvement. I wasn't sure if to be upset on wait times at all the food and drink places inside or sympathize with the workers who had no back up. They were rude out of frustration. I love this places deals but it needs to improve on its service for sure.

Sebastian Falcon

Really nice theatre. We want on Tuesday and it was worth it since tickets are 5 bucks on Fandango! Make sure to check it out!

Sang Suh

Bit overpriced but a fun time was had by all. The theaters were nice as well.

William Sauro

Most ridiculously-designed movie theatre I've ever seen. Safety bars block everyone's view of the screen, unless you are like 6'5".

Jenifer Williams

Overpriced and touristy. Make sure you feed people before you go...the seat service is crazily priced and the food was pretty lackluster. For $60 it better be amazing movie theater food, IMO.

patricia waldron

Loved it! Extra big and comfy reclining lounge seats in the auditorium (but cool A/C so bring a jacket) Wonderful place to enjoy a movie. Nice service - they take orders and will deliver drinks, food etc to you. Yummy burgers and chicken fingers. Kind of pricey but fun to try. Everyone there is helpful and polite. Still getting up-to-speed on menu items and training. Fun addition to downtown !!

Celia Guzman

Our server Maram M. Was Amazing, best service, treats you like family, recommended perfectly food, and oh my the desserts, just delicious......

Mark Christopher

Screens are pretty tiny.

Kevin Hanks

I live downtown and thought I would try our new Theater. It was unbearably hot in theater 8, and we were going to order some red wine but it was too hot. Also do not get seats in the last row unless you like to have a metal hand bar cutting off part of the screen. I'll go to cinepolis from now on.

Javier Cota

Gray vibe, atmosphere and movies seats roomy and comfortable!

Vashae High

Came here for my Birthday and had a blast!

Mae Robbins

The theater looks great, nice recline chairs and food served by the convenience of pressing a button. I wanted to give this place a higher star rating however I couldn't shake the unfriendly service we received by the staff. We ordered food right before the previews started. The lights were still on so we shouldn't of had any issues interacting with the server. Unfortunately the server would not make eye contact with my husband and I and kept looking away as if he had more important things to do. Once the movie started the servers who dropped off our food also had snobby attitudes. After the movie we went to take a look at the candy displayed in the lobby. We could hear someone behind us cursing and complaining about their day very loudly. When I turned around I was shocked to see if was one of the employees. The concept and esthetic of the theater is fantastic however if the staff is rude that's one thing that makes me very reluctant to want to come back.

First time here. Had a nice atmosphere to it, but a bit pricey in my opinion. Still had a great time though.

Emma Walsh

The theater itself is very cool and comfortable, however, my friend and I both ordered avacado toast at the beginning of the movie. I got mine after half of the movie had already played. My friend called them several times because she hadn't gotten hers yet. They said it was coming. She never received hers. We went to the front desk afterward to ask for a refund and they claimed they never charged her even though they took her card. We also waited a very long time for them to tell us that. Bad service.

Timothy Trun

1. Movie started with lights still on 2. Projectionist repeatedly turned on a bright light ruining several dark scenes of the movie. 3. Overall sound was pretty low. 4. At one point we could hear the music blasting from an ad in the theatre next door during a quiet/sad part of the film. 5. What's the point of showing an ad for Sugar Factory right before the movie if all of your footage is in low resolution? Looked horrible. Your theatre is nice but I'm not coming back or recommending you due to the above. Thanks for making my Endgame experience whack.

Sandy R

First time visit, well the good - staff super nice and it wasnt very busy for a Friday night. Dinni was our bartender, upstairs bar, super nice and excellent customer service. Even overheard someone in the group saying their stomach hurt and she handed her a ginger ale. Super sweet!! Now the bad - bathrooms were super gross. Given the theater was so slow would have expected someone to check in on the bathroom to avoid it getting this bad. Honestly I would have given it less stars if it wasnt for the nice staff.

Matthew Bliven

Really cool theater in the historic Gaslamp district. It is incorporated with the Sugar factory. Expensive food. 5$ Tuesday movie tickets. Full bar. FUN! $$$$

Jimmy Mesho

Amazing Place , full of character and the food is just amazing, nice place to throw a party its huge.

Aditya PSR

Horrible place. They dont turn on the air conditioning in SUMMER and it can ruin the best of movies for you. I came out of The lion king regretting my choice of place to watch. I swear through my shirt.

Gregory Alexander II

Expectations weren't met. The ambiance OH, THERE WAS NONE! The entry was beautiful then BLAH!

GoAppr Studio

Great place to go have dinner serviced to you at your recliner watching the newest movie.

mr llama13

Huge new venue but still needs to work on details. Music is way too loud in the main public space. Need to work on their acoustics. We watched the new into the Spider-Verse movie and it was blurry. I now realize it must have been the 3-D version but they did not advertise it as 3-D and nobody got glasses. Weird. Also they had no beer available and then when I went to pay for our food at end of the movie they said they don’t take Amex even though it had American Express featured on the case the bill comes in. Service was very nice if still a little clueless. Menu is so big that it’s almost too much. More is not always better. I would give them a few weeks to work out the details before trying again. Also row “C” is very close to the screen. I would recommend row D or further back

Louis Larson

Nice seats, but the video and audio quality are average at best. Get the rainbow sliders... delicious!

Ben Sanchez

Very comfortable, a bit pricey, goblet cocktails could use more alcohol , great sound, great experience

Jennifer Titus

Theater Box was great! Comfortable seats and great theater. Snacks were great but a little expensive. Large public parking garage a few blocks away. Fun experience if you're in town and want to see a movie.

Nancy McCallion

The restroom was filthy, toilet paper strewn about and dead cockroaches on the wet, sticky floor. Service in the theater was poor, hardly what you would expect from a place that charges $24 for a dessert and $7 for a small bag of soggy popcorn.

Sabine St. James

Having walked in without knowing what kind of place this was, I'll say I was a little overwhelmed. I'm sure I still didnt see everything this place has to offer but I was, after all, only there to see a movie. Luckily, the box office was clearly distinguishable from the sugar factory/starbucks counter and the full service restaurant towards the back. $17 for an adult on a Monday night is a typical CA movie price. The bartender/cashier was jovial considering the late hour. Seats were comfy. Bathroom was clean. I only ordered popcorn but I saw things other people had ordered, shakes, burgers, cocktails, etc. It all looked exceptionally good and I hope to try something more elaborate next time. Awesome place for a dinner&movie date night.

Kevin O'Connell

Not for movie fans... I'm really not sure who this is for.

Jeana Verkempinck

Great theater, very comfortable seats... Just expensive.

Trina Gray

Nice seats. Clean theater. Order drinks from your seat. In the heart of Gaslamp on 5th ave. No parking. Attached to sugar factory.

Nicolette Pacho

For dates, kids, birthdays, evenings- this place is Awesome !!! The shakes & cocktails, food menu- pure FUN!!

maria alino

I didn't get a chance of seeing the movie I need at the restaurant it's fabulous I like it

Chellely 97

Comfortable and perfect if you would prefer something nice compared to regular theaters. The past few visits have been a little rocky in terms of service.

Elizabeth Eubanks

Really enjoyed our movie experience. The seats were very comfortable and theatre was quiet.

Derek Campfield

Really great movie theater with a candy store and Starbucks inside. Discount movie tickets on Tuesdays!

Kelsey Looman

Overall experience was okay. I called in a day ahead to make reservations which is recommended - was assured I was getting the "center seats together" which is what I was hoping for. Picked up my tickets at Will Call and had no issues, only to then get to the theater and learn that my "two seats together" were actually halves of joint seats in which 2 single men were sitting. Not ideal for date night with my significant other. I asked for assistance being moved which was quickly handled, we moved to our new seats a row down in the center and together this time. We ordered drinks and proceeded to enjoy previews. Only to have our waiter /usher return to let us know that we would need to move again because the seats we were moved to were booked. This time, we were moved all the way to the end of the aisle. DEFINITELY NOT the best seats in the house and I would recommend not booking these particular seats when you choose ahead of time. Our drinks didn't come for over 20 min. as we watched everyone else around us get their respective orders. Kind of a lack luster experience especially after going through the trouble of doing what is recommended and making arrangements ahead of time in order to get good seats. Odd side note that I normally wouldn't ever comment on, but I heard multiple complaints around me - ladies restroom has no purse hooks in stalls, smelt disgusting & lacked paper towels or enough hand dryers (1 for all to use). Overall, the candy selection was nice, movie seats reclined and we're comfortable and the drinks were not terribly overpriced for the area(red bull & vodka $7.25, makers & coke $10.25) We had a gift card to use for dinner, and made reservations. However we chose not to stay after our movie experience.

The only negative is it's in gaslamp so parking can be a bummer. But other than that it's beautiful atmosphere. The food I ordered was delicious. They have these goblet drinks... best shared! I didn't realize how big it really was, but it came with lemon gummies so that was another plus. It's comparable to the lot, comfy seats, chair service, and restaurants nearby, but since it's gaslamp you have more options. The roof top is scheduled to open in a few weeks so I plan to go back.

Brian Becker

This place is great. Candy, good, drinks, seats, service. Chill to watch a movie!

Nyyrikki Org

*Nice decor and the entrance into the candy area is different. *Service was ok. *Food quality vs cost isn't there. I've had much better food at Cinéoplis and even newer Regals *This theater is made for tall people. Shorter people may have issues with the safety bar that blocks a portion of the screen on each row. *Seats are standard stadium seating that is now common place...nothing special. *the alcohol drinks were mediocre. Their "specialty" drinks (tried 2 of them) were bland and tasted watered down I probably won't go back to this Movie Theatre portion (theres a restaurant attached to it) unless it's for a special event that's not available elsewhere. With all the talk about how great this theater is...the hype didnt meet the reality of the experience. Theres plenty of potential...they just to invest better into the experience

Robert Cruz

So me and my wife have been here twice, and both times have not been a great experience. The first time, we were overcharged (without signing or receiving a recipt) and had to wait about an hour and a half for our drinks. The 2md time we called the waitress, she said that they only had one bartender working (on a Saturday night in DownTown San Diego) which when we left saw at least 3 behind the bar. Keep in mind that everybody else in the theater was getting drinks at the same time. The next morning, I saw that we had been charged 111.00 dollars. When we added everything that we ordered, saw that it came out to around 70 so we called and we gave our information and were told that we would get a call back. Never did, so I called a couple days later and saw that the charge jumped up to 121 dollars, and again were told that we would get a call back, again, never did. Which brings me to today. We went back to try this place again, got the initial issue fixed, but it took a waiter almost 30 minutes to get to us, when 3 separate ones had come into the theater to help others. When we finally did order, I got the wrong drink, and it took almost an hour for my wife to get her slushie. This was for a 1230 movie on a Tuesday. While the food is great, stuff like this ruins the entire experience. We most likely will never go back to that place again.

Richard Habib

Best way to see a movie.

Giuliana Schroeder

Space was remodelled very nicely, but it feels mismanaged. Been a couple of times and the popcorn was terrible, shake too sugary (added sugar to a milkshake, who does that?), The theatre warm (not enough AC), the sound too low we had to complain, even the rails cover the screen a bit on some seats.... So even tho it looks flashy and new, it's missing the details and attention to make it great.

Victor Camberos

Fun times. Awesome desserts

Jonathan Avila

LOVE the vibe they are going for here. Definitely expect to pay club/ Vegas prices for drinks, but it's a classy ambiance. Definitely a mature setting for downtown.

Don Dimon

Been here twice now and so excited to have a "luxury" theatre in Downtown San Diego. I feel the place is not totally running the way it needs to be and after talking to some of the staff they also agree that they have some things to work out. The biggest issue by far is food quality. My first experience the food was so bad I had to send back two different burgers (had very bad rotten meat flavor). The fries also taste like they are cooked in the same oil that other foods are which is kind of gross (I mean how do you mess up Burgers and Fries?). Popcorn is overly salted and almost unedible. Yes, even the popcorn is pretty bad. Bar drinks are good but avoid the overpriced sweet drinks (30$ plus). Overall staff is good, friendly and attentive. They just need to fix their food quality issues and this place will be amazing. I'd say drink and watch movies here but avoid food for now. I would ask the management to visit The Lot Theatres and see how they operate - they have a consistent "luxury" product that Theatre Box does not yet match. They also have much better popcorn selections. I'm going back again this week for the 5$ Tuesday movies.. fingers crossed they have improved some things.

Josh Huddleston

Great movie experience. My wife and I appreciate all the attention to detail in creating a fun innovative way to “go to the movies”.

america belongs to all

I am very happy to see this theater in San Diego DownTown. However the recliners are not comfortable at all and be vary of the front row seats. Lastly avoid the $40.00 cocktails at the sugar factory, just a pure waste and very limited alcohol in the drink for the price. Service was nice and the ambience is great as well.

Larry Lehman

This place was so amazing. The service is top notch. The food was better then we had heard. And let me say the specialty drinks are bomb. I will go here again.

I feel the place is not totally running the way it needs to be and after talking to some of the staff they also agree that they have some things to work out. The biggest issue by far is food quality. My first experience the food was so bad I had to send back two different burgers (had very bad rotten meat flavor). The fries also taste like they are cooked in the same oil that other foods are which is kind of gross (I mean how do you mess up Burgers and Fries?). Popcorn is overly salted and almost unedible. Yes, even the popcorn is pretty bad. Bar drinks are good but avoid the overpriced sweet drinks (30$ plus). Overall staff is good, friendly and attentive. They just need to fix their food quality issues and this place will be amazing. I'd say drink and watch movies here but avoid food for now. I would ask the management to visit The Lot Theatres and see how they operate - they have a consistent "luxury" product that Theatre Box does not yet match. They also have much better popcorn selections. I'm going back again this week for the 5$ Tuesday movies.. fingers crossed they have improved some things.

Great movie experience. My wife and I appreciate all the attention to detail in creating a fun innovative way to “go to the movies”.

america belongs to all

I am very happy to see this theater in San Diego DownTown. However the recliners are not comfortable at all and be vary of the front row seats. Lastly avoid the $40.00 cocktails at the sugar factory, just a pure waste and very limited alcohol in the drink for the price. Service was nice and the ambience is great as well.

Larry Lehman

This place was so amazing. The service is top notch. The food was better then we had heard. And let me say the specialty drinks are bomb. I will go here again.

David Donohue

Very cool place, great seating and menu options delivered to you while you watch the movie!

Kawana Davis

The movie, food and service was great! A little pricey on the food . . . but low cost for movie ticket easily offset the $20 dollars burgers and fries! The theater is located right in the middle of the outstanding Gaslamp district! Not too far from PETCO stadium and the plethora of hotels in the area. Nice place to take the kids before or after a baseball game! Enjoy!!!!!

Angela Wells-White

The service was spectacular. I ordered a non- alcoholic drink and received a visually stunning masterpiece. And to top it off, she delivered on taste. Job well done!

Y. S.

I LOVED this place!! -FOOD- I got a chocolate milkshake ($8 for 16 oz) & sprinkle donut ($2.50) and they were both good!! Inside the movie, I ordered fries ($7) and they were too salty, won't order again. My only critic was that the food doesn't have the amount of calories. -SERVICE- Great service! Inside the movie theater, the waiters were very fast, quiet, and very polite. Ordering didnt interrupt the movie experience. -MOVIE THEATER- Great movie quality! LOVED the seats! Most comfortable movie I have ever been to ans the seats are recliners

Had a great time our waiters were fun and still professional. Food is good, I've been to other locations and this location fits in with the rest.

Erica Flores

Loved this place! Fun and great service!

melissa scrivner

We went to see Endgame for the 745 showing in theater 4... it was the worst. The AC was broken, so a three hour and one minute movie with 33 sweaty people. I swore by this theater, however I may reconsider. It was so uncomfortable and the food service took forever. Then when the popcorn came out, it was so stale it was not eatable. All of the prices are upwards of a dollar or two more than listed on the menu. Totally disappointed and unlikely to return. Waste of a lot of money.

hector salas

This place is really awesome but expect to pay some big bucks drinks where 40 buck a piece our bill was almost 500 dollars for 6 of us

This is very unique and different style of Movie Theatres. The building has three different Restaurants on site. All the Theatre seat recline with attached tables. There are buttons on all the seats for food, drinks, and gourmet popcorn delivered to your section. All the seats are assigned and chosen from a digital display, before the movie begins. The atmosphere is very elegant and modern, Wow !!!

Will M.

The drinks were absolutely amazing. The ice cream was great as well. My food was delicious. People kept telling me this place was expensive but its not at all. The drinks are high but thats it. One if the people in my party had an issue with her food. She spefically asked if the Southwest burger was spicy and our waiter told her no. After a few bites her tongue swelled up. I took a look and the burger has tons of red pepper flakes. We alerted the waiter, who took it off of the bill and brought some milk. Then we received the bill... Her food was still on it. We confronted our waiter says he could only take 20% off

Kenneth Hatfield

Really nice movie theater. Perfect for a relaxing date with alcohol and a movie.

Michael Dorsey

First time at the Theatre Box and our service was poor and slow. Server got our order wrong AFTER we followed her suggestions. The food was late and delivered in stages where one person was eating and the others were watching. The food quality was great and a good value but the poor service just killed the experience.

Anastacia Edwards

A little expensive but very worth it. The pictures are from the restaurant. Took my daughter for her birthday it was great. They brought her desert and sang Happy birthday to her. I had two different cocktails that where great and my kids loved the food.

Rebecca Scott

Love the atmosphere. The drinks are great and wonderful staff.

Nathan Nash

The railing in front of every row of seats is terrible and blocks the screen. If it's necessary for safety, use plexiglass or something see-through. If you recline your seat at all the railing blocks the bottom 1/4 of the screen. If you're looking for an overpriced theater, you're better off going to "The Lot", at least you can see the movie.

Leonela Nelson

Great experience. We watched the Marvel movie, great seating. The service was slow but other then that it was fun

Isaac Zetino

I love how this theatre has a legit menu. Its stuff like that which makes the reclining seats that much better. The entrance to this theater is lively and energetic.

Wayne Gilchrist

The food and service was good, the place was a little too loud for me, but their King Kong I e cream dish was out of this world. I've never seen anything like it before.

Rick Wallis

Fun friendly environment with great food

Tina Blade

Captain Marvel was pretty good....i say out 10 oh I'd give it a 7.

Charles Philbrick

This place is bizarre. Ticket price is practically negligible which kind of makes sense given that my purchase\reservation was barely checked on my way in. Sitting in a small theater with maybe 15 seats it became clear the business model relies on in-theater service of food and drinks. That said, I ordered nothing and instead enjoyed my contraband beer, popcorn and chocolate. Picture and sound quality we're poor.

kyle b

The worst kind of movie going experience. $19 tickets, every seat should be good. But these little theatres have limited seats. Two rows that are too close to the screen and two that are right in front. And I don't know about you, but I don't go to a movie to eat overpriced bar food. And I don't go to a movie to feel like I'm at the club. Had to ask for water three times. Would not recommend.

Dennis Waters

I have recently went here with friends. The service was good and movie watching experience is really good when consider pricing and facilities.

Jordan Mcdaniel

Decent food. Good drinks. Great seats.

Paulina A

The movie experience is worth it but staff needs a lot of improvement. Make sure you check the prices of your food and make sure they give you the RIGHT change back ! We bought a goblet and our server was so rude. we gave her cash for it and when she came to give us our change we were missing $10.00! We asked her about it and she was expecting that as a tip whaaaat . A tip for service in watching a movie ? No thank you. MAKE SURE TO CHECK YOUR RECEIPT!!!

Thomas Rosenberger

Great place for movies and especially Tues at $5.00. A well deserved shout out to Manager Nick who diffused a problem with free tickets, popcorn, fries and drinks. Job well done! Nick is the man.

Bo Stone

Plush, cozy, comfortable. Just don't pick 1st row

Josie Gonzales

It has a great face lift from the original gaslamp theatre. Nice contemporary interior. BUT it become quickly apparent the theatre was design to be Instagram worthy and they did not take into consideration the quality of seeing a film in theatres. DO NOT go see a movie with a lot of dark scene, like a thriller. There is so much ambient light from the floor lighting and the projection booth (they forgot to turn off a light I believe) that depletes the quality of the picture. It is hilarious that with the remodel the escalators are still broken a lot.

Jeff Kiser

Great theater experience.

Danielle Fye-Turnage

Love love love love this place, best seating for watching a movie and you get served at your seat for drinks or food.downstairs is eating and candy galord....number one on my list

magic kid

Loved it. Fair prices for wonderful theater experience !!

Trishelle Harvey-Goodwin

Super dope venue, music is good however a bit loud; definitely worth visiting, a bit pricey also but the food and drinks were good.

Sushi Rob

Second time here, all was good until I bought 2 non alcoholic Virginia Strawberry Lemonades for $20.47 a piece total $40.94 with tax. Purchased them thinking my son and I could take the cup (plastic( as a souvenir, but come to find out that the we were followed to restroom and as soon as we walked out of the restroom Mr “In Charge” in a Salmon pinkish sport jacket asks if we paid for them and if I had my receipt. I showed him my receipt and laughed because I could not believe I was being question by Theater Box Management and then Mr Manager says that security tracked us through CCTV and that I didn’t pay for the “souvenir option” and if I enjoyed the drinks with a smirk and nervousness in his voice....I told him I couldn’t believe how pity it was for them to track us down to the restroom for two plastic cups.... geez! But good customer service from Sean Vaums

NATHAN ELLIS

Rude, aggressive doorman throwing his weight around and confiscating your shopping bags as you walk up the elevator for fear that you might snack on your carrot sticks during the movie rather than pay their absolutely ridiculous menu prices! It came as no surprise that the theatre was empty, this was not a pleasant experience. More like an institution than a movie theatre!

Jessica Yip

I won’t be able to see a movie anywhere else now that I’ve been to Theatre Box.

Kurt Whitney

Went to there web site to get ticket to the bumble move there site sent me to fandango. Tickets not for sale there Call theater they told me they were not showing the movie and it left last week....... It’s important that a movie theater up date there web when most of there sale are assigned seating sold on line. Come on people let’s get with it do your job your paid for and get off social media

Paul Fisher

Way overpriced food and drink.

Gabriel Turner

The service was good however the seating is a little awkward and some of the theater rooms. Extremely over priced. I don't see how it lasting very long in San Diego. It's centered around candy it's Called the Sugar Factory so I'm not surprised. I feel like San Diegians are more health conscienced. The movie and sound quality was great.

Amanda Hutchins

The minimum I expect of a theater is the ability to show the movie. 20 minutes after the movie was supposed to start, they finally got the pre movie ads going. An hour later the movie started. The Lot and AMC seats are better and they have free parking. And I really don't need $20 milkshakes in my life. This was a one and done.

Bryttni Gutierrez

Very nice accomodating great service

Marisela Robles

I didnt see the dining area but i enjoyed the theater who doesnt want to recline and watch a movie with service of drinks and food right to your seat

Lydia Posada

Ridiculously Amazing!

Mike N Gross

My wife and I went to see Avengers End Game here in late April and wow- what a find! Love the location, the prices, the service, and the fact that they serve you in your seats. The theater itself is part of the Sugar Factory but is upstairs and has a full menu of food, drinks, and alcoholic beverage. The seats in the theater are overstuffed leather recliners and leave lots of space to stretch out and watch the movie. You can push a button on your seat and a waiter comes and serves you. The menu has lots of regular items as well as some really cool unique meals, snacks, and drinks. I had the Cheesey Cheeseburger (it has Mac and cheese in it) and a chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich. The wife and I were pleasantly surprised with the facility, the upscale service, and the prices (which were very comparable to what you’d expect to pay at an entry level theater). Hands down our new favorite place to see movies in San Diego.

Savagian

I enjoyed myself once I was at my seat, but the rest of the building is desperate for a cleaning. The bathroom was dirty and several stalls were out of paper. The railings down the stairs were covered in some sort of flakey film that got all over my hands, and then my clothes when I tried to dust myself off. Maybe if they sell some d-list celebrity photos they could buy some cleaning supplies.

Robert Davis

This place is great. Very clean and modern. Super comfortable seats. And candy galore. Definitely recommend coming to check it out.

Brian Perkins

I love this place! Great views from every seat and amazing food selection. It can get pricey though.

Sarah Cordial

I’ve been spoiled; going back to a regular theater will be hard. The recliners in Theater Box is comfortable and can be adjusted to your preference. It has a built in table for your meals/snacks and drinks. A waiter is available to take your order with a press of a button. What more do you need?!

Travis Garrett

Great place to go to down town

Paul Cardoza

Amazing place. Awesome people. Will visit again.

Asa Diamond

I have been covering the movie industry for over 25 plus Year This is the Best Experience On Steroids...

Rosii And Kids

They made us wait for our reservation when we arrived 10 min early as others without reservations walked right in and there were tables available. Waiter forgot things that we asked for ie: water, napkins, silverware. We had to remind him several times

Bradley Schwenke

Very neat experience. Pricy, but worth it to see

Erin Biszak

I was impressed til around 2 hours into Avengers Endgame 2:30pm showing and realized just how hot it was in the theater. I can only assume the AC was broken and that's why it was so incredibly hot! But, if they are trying to save on the electricity bill than they may save a lot more as no one will come back! It kinda made the whole situation unbearable. I ordered the cheesy burger with a lot of requests( mac on side) and other things taken off and they made it perfect! I was very relieved and impressed! Husband had chicken sandwich and said his was good too. I was honestly too full after all of the food to order much else and then it just got so hot that I just wanted to go. We said that we would come back again only if we called ahead to see if they were going to have the AC working or on. Other than that it was a fun day at the theater with a good lunch! Just a shame it was so overwhelmingly hot in there!

Joe Ousley

Love the chairs! Service at the seat was okay, but details were less than accurate. I suggest making your own box of candy before the movie. If you are ordering food, get there early to ensure all is correct. Great sound, comfy atmosphere, and $5 Tuesdays!

Diana Rachel Reichart-Larson

Great experience! Sears were super comfortable, food was good, and service was right on point.

karriem b

Great food a bit pricey great atmosphere food and drink served in movie theater great idea

Steven Rubin

Preety kickback good spot.

Roger Thompson

Cool venue. Hope they tighten security enough to keep out homeless crazies. Maybe it's community outreach?

Kevin H

Awesome location and close to my house. Service was terrible though. I thought id love this place but I honestly don't think id go back. I tried to get a drink before going into the theater. There was not one customer at the bar, and the bartender did not even come over. She sat behind the bar on the other side on her phone. It was really awkward so we decided to just get drinks at our seat. We pressed the button 10 minutes before showtime. It took 55 minutes to get our drink. By that time I didn't even want it. $28 for a drink that I couldn't even drink because I got it so close to the end of the movie. The staff in the theater was ok but not too friendly. Ill stick with cinepolis or AMC from now on.

Cathy Powell

Had a Marvelous time celebrating Erica's birthday! Oolia was fantastic!!!

Gloria King

It was our first time and we really enjoyed our time there. The seats are super cool and we had dinner served to us while watched the movie. They need more blowers in the bathrooms for sure .. but besides that it was great. I would bring a blanket of you run cold .. I was fine but saw lots of people w them. This felt like a real date.

Antonio Rico

Paying for the dining and the over hyped sugar factory not the actual movie itself

Anthony Valencia

Was very impressed about the theater and the ticket prices where very cheap like the place allot would come and watch a movie again

James Hitherland

Came into theatrebox to watch a movie over the weekend, not only was the atmosphere and the setting amazing but the drinks were top notch as well. Our server Sean took great care of us, not only did he make sure our drinks were refilled after every time we were close to being done with them he made sure to check in with us to see if we wanted any appetizers or to try there rainbow sliders! We will be back again as this is now our go to theatre

Tasha Pargo

Excellent. Movie, drinks and dinner all at the same time. While reclining in super comfy chairs. I love it!

Anna Kang

I recommend sharing a Sugar Bowl. Plan to leave with a sugar high. Overall, the amenities were very nice. It's worth a trip!

Erin Somers

Theatre Box in San Diego was awesome! The theater is connected to Sugar. I grabbed dinner in the theater and ordered the crunch roll and spicy tuna roll which were great. Also got the chocolate cake which was pretty mediocre. I should’ve gotten the Nutella pizza.

Theatre Box in San Diego was awesome! The theater is connected to Sugar. I grabbed dinner in the theater and ordered the crunch roll and spicy tuna roll which were great. Also got the chocolate cake which was pretty mediocre. I should’ve gotten the Nutella pizza.
