This is a really cool, swanky cavernous venue located in the basement of El Gaucho in Belltown. It's awesome for a rainy winter day to escape to the jungles of animal print furniture, lush velvet drapes, and comfy movie theater seats. It is small, intimate, and non-commercialized although they have opened a second venue in Redmond and have started showing more mainstream films and less artisan films. And the discount nights make the Big Picture an affordable night out (as long as you don't order too many drinks). I love this place!! And I love to arrive early to lounge around in this sexy and sultry movie house and have a pre-movie drink. BUT, I have to say that on more occasions than not, the owners Mark and Katie, as well as other staff, have been extremely rude and air a certain level of arrogance that is appalling. Not only have I gone to many many movies here, but I have also rented the facility for private events and every time I have walked away without any warm and fuzzy feelings towards the staff. Believe me, I love this PLACE, but have vowed to never go back to support people that act like they just don't give a rip that you are handing your hard earned $$ over to them.
