My favorite theater in Madison. Best popcorn with real butter. Good food and drink choices including espresso drinks, beer and wine. Great location for dinner and a movie with lots of good restaurant choices less than a block away.

I gave up on Sundance. Expensive, not great service, and the way they do their online calendar is as if they don't want anyone to show up. When you bring this up they get perturbed. If I wanted a snotty attitude from a hipster hack who is not doing his job well, I'd go to Forequarter. I didn't want to like it, but Palace is way better, and the way they advertise their first run calendar and classics for $5 series is decipherable.

Worth what you pay for shows here, though we really never use the "amenities." Not sure why some people think you can't choose your own seats here--as they point out all over online and in the theatre you can choose seats in advance, at the theatre kiosk or if you buy a ticket at the door they show you a screen where you can pick out your own seats. There's literally no way you can go in *unless* you've chosen your seat in advance. smh Anyway, though the weekend nighttime adult ticket prices top out at $13, I've found the prices for beer and food to be surprisingly reasonable, for such high quality choices. It's the only way to see a movie on the big screen these days. And the underground, arthouse, limited release films that come here can't be found anywhere else.

Definitely one of my favorite movie spots in Madison, especially because there are significantly less children/teenagers. They often have releases that other theaters don't have also, as well as a nicer atmosphere.

I love the Sundance. Movie selection is great and I adore the ability to reserve seats in advance. Beautifully decorated. The weak spot is the food, only mediocre. Coffee is great though.

This is my favorite theater. The prices are similar to others, but Sundance provides a better experience for many reasons including excellent food and drink options, a roomy and comfortable lobby, and the ability to select your seats and purchase tickets from home.

A friend once suggested that the amenity charged for tickets at this theater was to keep the "riff raff" out. I'm not sure if that was the intention, but it seems to be the result. I go to a lot of movies, and I can count on one hand the number of times that that my experience has been ruined by rude patrons at Sundance.

No doors seemed to be labeled "Sundance Cinema." Despite that confusion I really enjoyed the place. The aesthetics of the whole area of the movie theater are phenomenal. Lots of browns, lots of metal, a little bit of a rustic feel. There's a coffee shop and lounge with lots of couches right outside the theaters so you can sit and talk with your friends about the movie you just saw together. The theater itself has a nice modern set-up with comfortable chairs and stadium seating. Seating is actually assigned so if you get your ticket early you can still show up close to start and get a reasonable seat.
