We are THE MOST FUN YOU CAN HAVE IN A DALLAS THEATER and have been since 1980. Well known for our popcorn tossing melodramas, with comedies, music, and improv comedy at great prices.

We attend shows here often. Entertainment is good, but the food needs work. A Ruben sandwich is the only thing that is consistently good. Should be better food for a dinner theatre.

We went to Pocket Sandwich Dinner Theater. The food was inexpensive but average. The acting on the other hand was superb. We went and saw "Scrooge". It followed very closely the movie. Bob Kratchet actually cried when Tiny Tim died. Now that's acting. I would...More

Really enjoyed this place. Food is so-so but you go there for the atmosphere and the farce. It was so much fun throwing popcorn at the actors and booing and hissing at the villain. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would love to go back next...More

We recently went to see Ebenezer Scrooge. The cast was fantastic. Even with a familiar story, they were still able to "draw us in", with emotional dialogue and good acting. This made for a really nice memory-making outing for our family. We highly recommend this...More
