Sundance Kabuki Cinema

Cinema in Nob Hill & Russian Hill

Cinema-going at its best. Reserve a stadium seat, belly up to the bar and order wine and surprisingly good food to enjoy during the film. A multiplex initiative by Robert Redford's Sundance Institute, Kabuki features big-name flicks and festivals – and it's green, with recycled-fiber seating, reclaimed-wood decor and local chocolates and booze (hence the 21-plus designation most shows). Validated parking.

Note: expect a $1.50 to $3 surcharge to see a movie not preceded by commercials.
