Philip Cypher

We enjoy being able to enjoy a movie and have a couple of beers with ok food

Joel Grafstein

A great place to watch a movie and have dinner and a drink.

Tom Boyle

Good casual food, snacks, salads and sandwiches. Great way to watch a movie.

Steven Westall

The Gilson is unique. It runs first run movies as you have a waist affordable to bring you drinks, appetizers ans/or dinner. It is tavern fare, I've found a number of items that are pretty good. The Chilli is about the best I've had …

Rich Perreault

Great for dinner and a movie

Frank Johnston

I love the Gilson! I come to CT several times a year for work and a night at the Gilson is always on the agenda. Unpretentious, fun, first run movies now, great house drinks and a surpising number of menu options. It's a uniquely communal experience and I just wish I had a Gilson where I live.

Fantastic food

Robert Henselder

Love the atmosphere

Ian Ferreira

Interesting place on Friday or Saturday. Food is better than you might expect. Not originally intended as a movies theater, so not the best place if you're just interested in the movie. Service is good. Nice place for a date night. Adult beverages. Fair but not great prices.

Awesome place for a movie, drinks and food.


Went with a friend, and had dinner. I will never again buy a glass of wine though. $6.00 for a tiny wine glass, 4-ounces is my guess. I was absolutely astonished that I was charged that price for what I got. The sandwich was worth the price, however. The movie was good, seating was comfortable and the view great! Nice folks all around so there was no talking and other pointless noise happening. Price of wine was not the waitress' fault and she was very good with us all. Would love to go again.

Great place for dinner and a movie

Bill Yeager

Unique! Had a great time and looking forward to returning soon!

James Murch Eschert

A lot of fun. We saw a movie upstairs - haven't been in the part before but it was great. Their menu is much larger then it used to be, reasonably priced and the food is very good ! We had the chefs salad and eggplant parmesan sandwich - both very good. Highly recommended.

Great concept....good Food, great service, and first rate movies at a great value!

Chris Fairbanks

Reasonably-priced food and drinks with your movie. I liked my ham/turkey/horseradish sandwich, and eating in a theatre is always the best. The upstairs theatre isn't as nice as the main screen. The sound is OK up there, although it's a bit tinny, coming through speakers more suited for a band.

Margit Gentile

Jurassic world! Great movie..

David Hartzell

When I go to the movies this is the place I go.

Brenda Matavs

martin wilson

Awesome place and great service

Melissa Reagan

Dinner theater like no other. Sit in pairs of comfortable chairs with small tables. Order food, drinks, excellent desserts and enjoy a (usually) first run movie. Make a reservation or get there early, popular movies sell out. Smaller theater upstairs so you have two chances to have a great time. Dinner for two including drinks and movie run a minimum of $50, plus tip. Typical meal for me is a cup of clam chowder, sausage and pepper sandwich, pitcher of beer or soda and the not to be missed hot fudge sundae.

Nicolette Whiddon

Diana Azevedo

Never been there before. Enjoyed myself very much. Will definitely go back

Todd Cieplinski

Don't go here for the food, but the concept is great. Good place to drink or have beverages before or during a movie, but the food is awful.

It was fantastic! Got to have great food and service all while watching a movie, not too bad on price, completely reasonable. I had a great time taking my grand mother and everyone else seemed pleased as well, no complaints of any kind

Joel Hurliman

Fantastic place to see a movie. Reservations normally required on the weekend. Waitresses serve food from a very decent menu. They also have a full range of adult beverages available. The seating is very comfortable and the price is very reasonable.

DawnLowrey Donaldson

Enjoyed myself very much

Glenn Larson

First visit. Food and service were excellent. My wife and I both had the chili. We both agreed that it was the best chili we've ever had at a restaurant. I would definitely order it again. The portions were large.

David Burr

Such a great combination. Dinner, drinks, and first run movies. The food is basic, but good. The wait staff is very friendly. The seating is extremely comfortable. A wonderful experience. We'll be back.

Cozy cinema cafe with simple food. Tickets go fast on weekends so reserve in advance!

Always a good night out. Friday and Saturday nights are 21 and over only. Other days are 12+ but must have parent. Suggest reservations if going on Friday or Saturday nights. Table service and full bar available. Popcorn made with real melted butter.

Nice place to catch dinner and a movie

Edward Fairbanks

I love this place and the concept. The food is good and the place has a great ambiance. Waitress kinda rushed us to settle up on the check during the movie which made her tip lower. I wish the overhead lights had been dimmed more and that …

Slim Anetacs

This is a fun place. Dinner and a movie without changing seats. You can get there early and eat first or eat during the movie. Comfortable seats too.

william gilliand

It's ok.. a little ruffled around the edges

Jodi Boada

Tom Rivera

Great service. Solid menu I haven't ordered anything that I didn't like. I can recommend the Philly cheese steak and the Ruben. The seating is well spaced so watching a movie and having dinner with full service feels very comfortable.

Dyan Ali

Thomas Dorr

Great value, movie and dinner, drinks. Very relaxing.

David Breitsprecher

A great evening out -- Dinner and a movie in the same place!

C Carrier

An enjoyable night out that you can actually afford to eat, drink and watch a movie. Date night for 2 including movie, drinks, meals, coffee and popcorn for 50.00!

Moe Levesque

Very nice place, comfortable seating, good food. Waitresses need to come around more often.

Bill Smith

Judi Lauriat

Stephen Campbell

Shawn Smith

One of a kind, great night out that won't break the bank. Dinner theaters are hard to find no matter where you live, we are blessed to have this one. Owner operator cares and is dedicated to making your experience a pleasant one. Worth every penny!

Scott Sherwood

Good service. Good food. Good movie. I have enjoyed this place two times now.

Sheila Reidy

Ena Dinnen

Food is well made and well presented. You pay as much as any theater, but it has the value of being in walking distance and you can have a glass of wine while watching the movie.

Steve McConaughy

This is a very nice retro theater. They play current release movies. Food is fair but you don't come here for the food.
