The Violet Crown Cinema in Austin, Texas will be opening to the public on Friday, April 29, 2011. The new theater is owned by Austin native Bill Banowsky, who founded Magnolia Pictures. The name of the theater came from Austin's nickname, "The City of the Violet Crown."
Programming for the Violet Crown Cinema will be "art, independent, documentary, and international" movies. Customers will be able to enjoy traditional theater concessions as well as gourmet appetizers. Violet Crown's Bar & Cafe offers a full cocktail bar, including an extensive beer list with several local draft beers, and a wine list containing fine wines.
All seats for all shows are reserved and can be purchased at the cinema or online. The web site says that they will be showing no commercials before the movie, and minimal previews. Seating begins five minutes before the show's start time and the movie will begin within ten minutes after the scheduled time. Children under the age of 16 are not admitted without an adult.
The Violet Crown Cinema will open on Friday by showing the French movie Certified Copy (Copie conforme), the Mexican documentary Circo, and Academy Award nominee for Best foreign language film from Denmark, In A Better World.
