We discovered this charming little movie theater and went there to watch an independent foreign language film. The price was fair, the people were friendly and the seats were clean and comfortable. The room we were in was small but we had a great time.

This theater is so cute! Just enough seats for let's say ten families to get together even though the people around us were mostly strangers. Everything is compact but clean and esthetically pleasing. Such a nice little discovery!

My hubby and I love this theater. The seats are very comfy and the viewing rooms small but great quality picture and sound. Great date night!

New building and theaters are a huge upgrade from The Showroom's humble beginnings. Consistently varied and interesting selection of films. Fellow patrons are typically quiet and respectful which is almost impossible to find in the area. They are there to watch a movie, not kill two hours. One downside is the lack of 4k projectors and deep black levels. Dark... More

This is a charming cinema with 3 theaters. The largest is only 60 seats. The middle one has about 20 seats ( I felt like I was in a private screening!) and the 3rd is upstairs with about 10 club chairs! Their choice of movies are very diverse ranging from first run to documentaries to Sundance Film types. Something for... More

Finally! A comfy place to watch unusual films! This theater has three rooms for viewing, form 12 to 65 seats. My favorite is the 12-seat small, with armchairs and end tables. But go online to get your tickets ahead of time! You don't want to be left out! The best was getting to see all the Oscar-nominated shorts, animations, and... More
