11200 Lakeline Mall Dr., Cedar Park, 78613, 512/335-4793
Another cinema that's out in far Northwest Austin, the Lakeline comes complete with nine screens and is notorious as Austin's only bifurcated mall-bound cineplex. While you're running to find the thesaurus, let me rephrase a bit and say it's Austin's only split-level movie theatre, with half up top and slightly more than half below. Handicapped accessible, natch, 35mm only (with chains, like Regal Cinemas, that's what you're going to get), and matching concession stands up and downstairs. "It's an interesting design for a mall, actually," beamed the manager-on-duty I spoke with. Presumably I.M. Pei was not involved, but nonetheless, the Lakeline is still a top-notch cineplex and a blessing to those of us who live anywhere west of the Arboretum.
