Where to Catch a Flick in Indianapolis

Indianapolis is the capital of the state of Indiana. It has a population of about three quarters of a million people. With that many people, it is likely that many of them will be movie lovers and there is a wide selection of movie theatres in the city.

Tibbs Drive-In Theatre

Residents of Indianapolis are lucky to have a throwback from the past still open and operational. The Tibbs Drive-In Theatre has four screens and offers movie goers two movies for the price of one. That means that on any day except Tuesdays, all summer long, there are eight different movies showing. In addition to the movie, the drive-in offers a snack bar with all the usual favorites, hamburgers, hotdogs, popcorn, cold soda, candy,  ice cream and slushies. It’s a great opportunity to pack up the family in the car, put the kids in their pajamas, and head to the movies for a great night.

AMC Showcase 17 

This AMC Showcase has stadium seating, digital surround sound and is wheelchair accessible. There is an IMAX theater as well.  Weekday movies Monday-Thursday before 6pm are $5, after 6pm the price is $7.50. AMC has a new rewards program called Stubs, with  $100 that is spent rewards members get $10 in reward credit, upgrades on fountain drinks and popcorn all the time and no online booking fees.  This theatre is located on the south side of town

AMC also has a Showcase 14 at Castleton Square.

United Artist Circle Center 9 

This is an old fashioned movie theatre without the newer stadium seating so one of the big complaints is that there just isn’t the leg room and the view that you get at some of the new theaters. What this center does have is a great downtown location and first run movies. For that reason, it is popular with anyone who lives downtown or is visiting and doesn’t want to have to get out the car. The Circle Center Mall is a big attraction as well and provides a great place to grab a bite before heading to the movies.

Cinema Grill

For something a little different, why not choose the Cinema Grill and get a movie and a meal. The menu is more extensive than your usual cinema, there are appetizers, pizza, sandwiches, salads and meals. Whether you are in the mood for fish, chicken or steak, you will find it here as well as a tasty selection of desserts. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and are not allowed at shows after 6pm unless they are G rated. This is a great way to enjoy a day or evening out alone or with the kids.

If you live in Indianapolis and you want to go to the movies, you have lots of choices. No matter where you live, the nearest movie won’t be far away.
