I went to the movies yesterday. This theatre (in Oakland) is fantastic. You sit on couches, you can order food (and they bring it to your chair), and their information sheet says how they pay their employees a living wage.
They're also reasonable people too. We ordered a milkshake but somehow it got lost in being delivered. A little later I went back and asked about it and they had put it in their refrigerator and/or freezer to keep it good for us. They knew someone would come back for it.
So... their movies are a couple of months out of "new releases", but that's ok with me. I'm not the type of person who goes to opening night of movies. Heck... I don't like going to a movie that's been out less than 2 or 3 weeks, since I know seating will be a problem (unless you get there 30+ minutes before, and wait outside).
So if you're in the Oakland area, consider going to this cinema: http://thenewparkway.com/
