Smack in the middle of the restaurant zone. Large, comfortable theater. The movies selected are often off-beat and always worth seeing. Enjoyed recent Fort Lauderdale Film Festival.

Non-commercial movies, is the opportunity to learn, in 80 min or so, about different cultures, real stories, a piece of history, a documentary, someone's struggles, and the list goes on. It is also, the chance of many new filmmakers to show their creations and for the public to support the arts. I really enjoy going to both, the location in... More

Theater that feels like the days of yore. This spot very often has movies that are not playing anywhere else.

A quaint theater showing choice "Indy" flicks and putting on a huge Film Festival every fall. Membership gives you so many benefits like free films, parties and a chance to discuss the film with other film lovers.

A group of Pan American flight attendants celebrated their organization, World Wings International by attending a screening of "A Powerful Noise."

My wife and I usually come here for the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival held in the fall. But we also stop in a couple times during the rest of the year for a foreign film. The seats, in this former church, are plush and comfortable. The concession stand offers limited food, but we are okay with popcorn. Beer and... More

They have a small little bar in the lobby that serves beer and wine and a few other mixed cocktails and snacks. Its a cool place to check out if they are showing a film that interests you. Beware there... More
