    The first Fantastic Beasts had a lot of heavy lifting to do. It needed to establish a world connected to the Harry Potter universe, but also one that was self-contained. It had to introduce several busloads of new characters and kick off a story c...

Checked this place out on Friday, and was very pleased with my night. I thought this would be a great date night spot and it was perfect. We had dinner next door at the Carbon Arc Bar which had great food and drinks. The décor of the restaurant ties right in with the theater and the best part is you can take your drinks and food with you to the move! The theater themselves were a great combination of old time movie with the updated technology. The only thing I didn't like is the walls seemed a little thin and you could hear some of the movie from next door but I'm just picky. 


If you are wondering is this spot is worth the drive up to the north side, without a doubt you will have a great night.  


Can't wait for it to reopen and provide another vibrant cultural spot to enjoy in Lincoln Square!


My grandparents used to bring me here as a kid to catch cheap flicks. Now it's being transformed into something that looks much more comfortable, and most likely more expensive, but I still love this tiny gem of a neighborhood movie theater.


So excited for The Davis to reopen! Was my favorite spot to see a flick! Love this theater!


Was an amazing place to see movies for $6.00 can't wait to see how amazing it is after the update, I suspect it'll be the same feel with more to offer.


A classic, no-thrills movie theatre in the heart of the neighborhood. Can't wait for the new renovated theater to reopen.
