Opened in 1947 and recently restored, the Inwood Theater showcases more than amazing films. Its expansive lobby boasts an underwater-themed original mural by artist Perry Nichols, a member of the Dallas Nine, and its ceiling dances with a bevy of beautiful water nymphs. A double-aisle staircase leads to the mezzanine, where neon-lit transparent panels are etched with realistic fish and underwater foliage. Newly updated screening rooms feature leather lounge chairs, comfortable sofas and loveseats, and popular LoveSac seating. A private bar also was added, allowing patrons to purchase cocktails and soft drinks without leaving the auditorium.
Moviegoers often arrive at the theater early to shop at Inwood Village, or share a drink at the Inwood Lounge, a full-service martini bar and popular Dallas hangout. Drinks from the lounge are allowed inside the theater as well, so you can enjoy a martini while you enjoy the show.
