You can see a blockbuster anywhere. These days, moviegoers want to know: Can I get a beer with that? How about a gin and tonic? Or a grilled panini and a salad? Yes, says the Arena Grand, you most certainly can.

The theater across the street from Nationwide Arena shows first-run Hollywood films and art-house entries. There's also a bistro serving subs, wraps, pizzas and fresh salads next to a bar serving beer, wine and liquor. It's exactly the theater that Downtown deserves.

Runners-up: Studio 35, Drexel Theatre
