Gateway Theatre

9700 Stonelake, 512/416-5700
"Hey! You just stepped on the school insignia. Nobody does that, ever!" That line from Nick Ray's Rebel Without a Cause will echo in your head when you see the giant Texas star emblazoned on the Gateway's massive marble foyer floor. Tread away, though. They can take it. Sixteen screens, all THX and Digital, seating up to 242 patrons per screen on stadium-style seats so that guy with the 10-gallon hat in front of you can just leave that sucker bolted on. Like most chain theatres (in this case, Regal Cinemas), the Gateway can screen only the industry standard 35mm prints, but with the Texas-sized opulence going on here, that's less of a sticking point than an observation. True managerial quote: "What's unique about us? Not much. Everybody knows we're the best. That's about it." Hey, Val Kilmer called. He wants his ego back.
