Look Cinemas

Three fearless and successful entrepreneurs, Tom Stephenson, Brian Mason and Joseph Palladino had an idea they believed would be a perfect fit for North Dallas.  Look Cinemas was born.

Mr. Stephenson was previously President and CEO of Rave Motion Pictures. Mr. Mason is an accomplished entrepreneur in many enterprises, including digital media, and advertising. Mr. Palladino is a co-owner of Nick & Sam’s Steak House and creator of various dining concepts. With a team made up of members with an overload of talent and successful experience, their venture was certain to be a winner.

Tom, Brian and Joseph had a vision to make the movie going experience the best possible. They wanted to incorporate, the best sound, seats, atmosphere, food and customer service possible. They targeted four types of moviegoers.


1. Look: They wanted the type of person who wanted to see a movie and desired a full-service dining experience with fine cuisine, wine and great service.
2. The Loft: The second type of customer they were seeking would be over the age of 21 and wanted lighter fare.
3. Evolution: The third type of person would demand the best screen, the best sound and the best chairs.
4. Fourth and final type of moviegoer, the General Admission: This person simply wants to enjoy a movie.

The dream team accomplished what they had set out to do. This amazing theater is located on the spot where the old Studio Movie Grill once stood on Beltline. The building was designed by Tony Pleskow and the 11 screen, 1,900-seat cinema opened her doors on March 29, 2013. Look had a price tag of 17 million dollars to build.

LOOK Cinemas is connected to two wonderful restaurants. The Ivy Kitchen and Coal Vines Pizza and Wine Bar. You can enjoy both places without having to attend a movie. You may also enjoy them before, after or during your movie.

LOOK & DINE in a luxury dine-in theaters with service from IVY Kitchen; savor handcrafted cocktails and take-in fare with your movie in the LOFTS; or enjoy the big screen experience in EVOLUTION with power recliners. You may also spend time with the family in the LIVING ROOMS with power recliners, sofas or armchairs.

All LOOK Cinemas screens feature ultra-comfortable seating. Around the theater you’ll find power recliners, armchairs and sofas with ottomans. LOOK also features state-of-the-art technology and a variety of quality concessions. They also offer fresh food and beverage choices.

All seats can be reserved on their website and valet parking is available weekend nights and select weekdays.
