The small lobby in the Cineplex Odeon Shirlington misrepresents the clean, comfortable and large-screen theaters inside. Three of its seven screens are curved, and seating capacity ranges from 165 to 350. Thus, it's well equipped to handle any flick, whether it be an action-packed blockbuster, an independent or an unrated foreign film. But you probably won't see the latest Disney release here. The movie choices generally target an adult audience. You can buy a cup of coffee; you won't find a video game. The restrooms are inconveniently upstairs, and like the lobby, small. The theater towers over the nearby Village of Shirlington, and offers a pleasant art deco style reminiscent of a different place and time. Street lamps illuminate the village, which has various restaurants and small shops. From the village, you can easily spot the neon lights of the theater marquee. A large lot behind the theater provides free parking.
