Only by chance did we attend an Argentine series of shorts called "Wild Tales". Theater is small but decent size screen and very comfortable seats. Have visited Ft Lauderdale for many years and this was the first time we "found" this place. Minutes from downtown.

This theater will show films that you cannot see elsewhere. the seats are the best in the city. they do premieres and other special events. If you are getting ready for the Oscars, they do great short parties and run all day long showings of animated to foreign films. They also run Rocky Horror Picture Show! great place for friends...

Great movie selections. Small refreshment stand serves snacks and beer. Seats are comfortable and arranged on an incline for good views.

The two employees (and the cat!) were nice and made me feel welcome. I would recommend this place anytime for a date or a family evening.

How cool and OLD CHURCH (ugh!) TRANSFORMED into a theater between the high-rises! Go. Support the local film makers!

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
