Average Cinema, Strict on Outside Food Policy.
I like Gallery Place's cinema mainly because its convenient to where I live, plays all the current movies, and is relatively clean. Because the location is central to most neighborhoods in DC and close to the metro, however, it's often crowded and finding a good seat for a movie on opening weekend can become a mission. Another big downside: they're ridiculously strict about bringing in outside food - I've experienced this in other cities before but Gallery Place is unnecessarily strict. I've come here to see movies multiple times where I had leftovers in a box or food from shopping and they didn't allow me to go in - what can they expect if I ate at Bar Louie but can't go home and drop off my leftovers?? Just expect to eat everything if you have dinner beforehand.
