Let's Go to the Movies (in Oakland)

November 20, 2011 by bryan

We love film and honestly watch movies very, VERY frequently. One of our favorite things to do together is watch a film that has interesting insight into humanity, delves into deeper truth and philosophy, tells us something new about the world or involves some form of a vampires in a postapocalyptic world. The following are our favorite places to go in Oakland for a movie and where we would enjoy having a discussion afterwards.

 
Paramount Theater
  • Where: Broadway (Uptown)

  • Why: Movie classics, Art Deco, Dec-O-Win, Mighty Wurlitzer organ, 5 bucks...Why not?

  • After: Xolo for late night tacos or Era Art Bar for beer and spirits in a lovely atmosphere
 
Grand Lake Theater
  • Where: Grand Ave.

  • Why: Historic theater, best sign around town, fun atmosphere for a blockbuster's opening night
  • 
After: Boot and Shoe Service for cocktails and pizza (the meatballs are a must if available)
 
Piedmont Theater
  • Where: Piedmont Ave.

  • Why: Small theaters, comfortable seats, independent films and audiences that enjoy them 

  • After: Lush Gelato for innovative flavors or Adesso for their happy hour drinks and small bites
