The Charleston area has seven movie theaters. You can get a complete list of area showtimes at Google. Most have more or less your standard fare, but we have a few thoughts if you're looking for something in particular ...

For the most posh theater: We recommend the Palmetto Grande for their posh seats, multiple screens and newest building.
For the cheapest ticket: Visit Summerville's Cinemark Movies 8 and get $4.75 standard admission and $2.75 during matinees.
For a movie off the beaten path: Visit the Terrace. You can even get an alcoholic drink there!
For food: Visit Cinebarre. Click through to their website for their full menu including alcoholic drinks.
