Great selection of movies, friendly service, perfect ambience, and yes that's REAL butter on the popcorn! Actually, the snack and drink menu is inspired. They know what you want.

Really the only place in Kingston where you will catch independent films. A great place for aspiring film students to catch small, low-budget films that they would not see otherwise. Friendly staff with very reasonable prices. Small theatres with great seat views. A lovely, alternative stop for a film buff looking for something international, Canadian, or even local... just depends... More

Great regular movie lineup, good popcorn and snacks, very creative and enjoyable special showings, good support of local film endeavors and film festivals, and all with friendly staff and good prices. What more could any want from a local theatre.

A small venue with great movies to enjoy at a very reasonable price. Don't think there is a bad seat in the theatre and the chairs are quite comfortable. A fun place to go without the big crowds.

A delight to discover a cozy, if slightly threadbare, cinema showing non-mainstream fare. Good picture and sound and comfy seats. Only let down by the scruffy and uninviting entrance - seems to have more to do with the sale of lottery tickets. Maybe it could do with a bit of a spruce up but all the essentials are there. A...

The films shown are cool, and the food is also good. Very nice if you plan on spending the day downtown.

Enjoy watching films, both new and old box office hits, as well as alternative or independent films. You can even get a mug of coffee in this cozy theatre as you sit back and enjoy. Friendly staff make this theatre a way better choice, unless you need a HUGE screen.

This is the only movie theatre downtown in Kingston and it's wonderful. Run by some very hip people who know good film. Great for a date or night out with friends. Plus they sell tea and cookies at the concession stand!

I don't know if young people are deaf thse day, but we avoid the main movie theatres because of the ridiculous volume of the sound. Especially during Coming Attractions. But teh Screening Room is not like that. It is a small theatre and shows non mainstream movies or movies that are no longer running in main theatres. Usually higher calibre... More

Love the selections offered at this theater. The screening rooms (there are 2) are small and the seats are old-fashioned. However, there is a quaintness to this place. We also like that it is located right downtown in Kingston. All the other movie theaters are gigantic places near malls.
