Movies with Some Great Lines - as in Red, Blue, Green and Orange Lines
Taking DART to see a movie is a great way to pass a winter's afternoon or evening. Whether you want to laugh, cry, get scared or be thrilled, some of the coolest cinematic experiences are near DART Rail stations.

Angelika Film Center, located at Mockingbird Station, has become a Dallas institution, and for good reason. A mix of indie and mainstream releases offers something for everyone, and the great sightlines and comfy chairs make for an intimate cinema experience.

The Magnolia also screens both art films and blockbusters, and has a full bar in-house, where you can hang out before or after the movie. The stylish theater, which has won numerous best-of awards, is in the heart of West Village, about a three-block walk from Cityplace/Uptown Station and right along the M-Line Trolley line.

Alamo Drafthouse, the Austin-born, dine-in theater, is expected to open its third North Texas location by February. Located in Irving's Toyota Music Factory, the state-of-the-art theater features large screens and great sound that provide optimal viewing. And some of its theaters even have 35-millimeter projectors, so that great films of the past can be seen as they were intended. This trendsetting movie house is a short walk from Irving Convention Center Station.

A different kind of movie experience is located on Downtown Garland's historic square. The Plaza Theatre periodically offers crowd-pleasing classics for free. To make the deal even sweeter, candy and other concessions are only $2 each. The circa-1941 landmark has been fully restored to its Art Deco glory, and is about three blocks from Downtown Garland Station.
