Watched the movie "2012" here on the big screen and enjoyed a meal and a good beer at the same time. I can't believe they only charge 3 bucks to get in this is a great place and I will be going back sometime.

But many of their properties, including the Mission Theater, have equally deserved reputations for poor service and mediocre food. The McM's seem to get a pass for...More

Great place to watch a movie along with some delicious nachos and a drink from the McMennamins bar. They play new and classic movies.
