Were we go to see the "indies"

The best atmospheric theater to see independent movies old and new. We live about an hour away but go often and frequently meet friends for movie and meal at the Tower Restaurant.

I saw "When Harry Met Sally" here the night before my Masters exam in 1989. The Art Deco outside and the hippy dippy style of the staff and inside just makes going to the movies a little more special. A real Sacramento treasure.

Fun Fun Fun with a great atmosphere, fair pricing, great parking and just an all around wonderful time was had by all of us that attended. The show was so funny, seriously. You will laugh your butt off. LOL

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the fall comedy series they had. I forgot the name of the group but it was something like the 4 incredibly handsome comedians or similar. I love comedy and this was a lot of fun.

Badly in need of TLC. Bad viewing, bad sound, and no one seems to care. We want to support independent businesses, but we need some value for our dollar.

I am not sure if the Tower Theater or the Crest Theater are my favorite in Sacramento but both have a great atmosphere. The big screen is much better than the two smaller screens so beware. But, a tub of popcorn, a Sprite, and two hours later I feel like I have been to a mental spa!

The Tower is the only theater left in Sacramento where you can regularly find independent (including foreign) films. While a bit funky inside, (hey, it's old), always a good bet for serious movie goers. Lots of history around this corner too; old location of Tower Drugs where Sal Solomon started Tower Records, now a great restaurant.

Yes, it's old. If someone tall sits in front of you, you might have trouble seeing. Oh well. Great indie movie selection, nice staff, and the popcorn is so much better than the typical rubbish at larger theaters.

Terrific venue with an art deco look. This was our first time to this venue where we saw David Wilcox. The acoustics were perfect and it looks like every seat offers excellent viewing. The theatre has a bar section where you can get drinks and snacks. There is also ample free parking either on the street or in the parking... More
