5458 West Lovers Lane just off the Dallas North Tollway
INFO: 3 Screens DLP Digital Projection and Sound. Built in 1947. Operated by Landmark since 1988. Just off the Dallas North Tollway, the Inwood Theatre is the Dallas area's premiere home for independent film and foreign language cinema.
Located in the theatre's lobby is one of Dallas's most popular hang-outs—the Inwood Lounge. A full service martini bar, it is the ideal place to meet friends before a film or to discuss the films you have just seen. But if it is food you seek, besides the excellent popcorn that you can find at the concession stand, the theatre has many eateries nearby ranging from Italian, to Chinese, to Texas Barbecue, to Mexican and more. There are over ten places to eat within five minutes walking distance from the Inwood.
The Inwood undergoes a new lease on life. In January of 2005, following the purchase of Landmark Theatres by Dallas based Todd Wagner & Mark Cuban, the Inwood was refurbished. Maintaining the integrity and beauty of the original theatre, the theatre’s murals were touched up and re-lit, its historical neon sign was re-built and the upstairs auditoriums were transformed into screening rooms replete with leather lounge chairs. In addition to new carpet, seats, sound and screens, the concession stand and bathrooms were also upgraded for your comfort and convenience. As part of the refurbishment project the much-loved Inwood Lounge, Dallas’s best martini bar, truly became a part of the theatre when patrons finally were allowed to take their drinks with them into the auditoriums. There is nothing quite like a movie while enjoying a martini.
The Screening Lounge Auditorium debuts at the Inwood. In May of 2008 Landmark Theatres introduced its newest Screening Lounge Auditorium at the Inwood Theatre. This unique auditorium—the first and only one of its kind in Texas—gives audiences an unparalleled movie-going experience. Working in partnership with the LoveSac® Furniture Company, Landmark completely re-invented the first-floor auditorium of the Inwood with a variety of unique seating options including couches, loveseats, chairs and ottomans, as well as the original LoveSac.
The Inwood welcomes customers with special needs, however, only the downstairs auditorium is wheelchair accessible. Downstairs theatre programming is subject to change at any time.
PARKING: Ample free parking is available in adjacent lot.
OPERATING HOURS: The Inwood opens 15 minutes before the first scheduled showing and closes 15 minutes after the last scheduled showing starts.
