Located in historic Old Town Portsmouth, Virginia, THE COMMODORE features a 41 foot screen and THX and DOLBY DIGITAL sound. Every film is presented as it is meant to be seen, in a luxurious, state-of-the-art theatre. We now are very proud to announce that we have installed the latest in digital projection equipment: BARCO DP4K-23B with the DSS200 DOLBY server! Our presentation is better than any other theatre in the area!
Another first for the COMMODORE, a dual charging station for the all electric TESLA vehicles! We now can offer FREE charging for TESLA owners who need their vehicles charged while away from home! While they enjoy a meal and movie with us, we charge their car in our private lot. Please pass this on to any TESLA owners that you might know to be traveling in the Norfolk/VA Beach, VA area.
We receive quite a few inquiries about our reservation policy for our dining area. The reason we do not accept phone or internet reservations is that seating assignments are done from a seating chart that is only available in the boxoffice for the same day as the performance and we find that sometimes plans change and reservations that are made more than one day ahead tend not to be used, possibly depriving someone else that table.
There are a few ways to avoid the “sold out” issue in dining: plan on attending an early week night (Monday or Tuesday) as these evenings are usually slower than weekends; also most matinees are not as busy for lunch. Normally, the shows that sell out in the dining area are the Friday and Saturday evening performances; however, due to the popularity of this film, we may sell out other performances as well. If you wish tickets for any show, plan on being in line by at least one hour prior to the scheduled opening times listed below. Please call our information line (757-393-6962) for seating availibility.
The Commodore boxoffice is open Wednesday through Sunday at 12:45 PM; Monday & Tuesday at 5:45 PM If we have a line to buy tickets, we may open earlier than normal. Our balcony is open Friday, Saturday & Sunday only. Popcorn, candy & soft drinks available in the balcony. Sorry no phone reservations can be taken. Same day ticket sales, in person, at the boxoffice. 24 hour Theatre & show information: (757) 393-6962.
We offer the best in sandwiches, desserts, and pizza, as well as beer, wine, and traditional soft drinks. Our unique ordering system allows you to pick up the phone on your table and place your order directly to our kitchen!
