I've been everywhere all over Florida, and I love movies. I went here with a friend who lives in Key West, and loved every moment. Best popcorn flavoring, and believe it or not, the celery topping was the best! They sell beer and wine inside, and the movie theater still has that old glamorous look to it, made to make... More

Great movies. Employees love their jobs. A quaint place to go on a date. Intimate setting and in the heart of Key West for pre movie dinner and a walk around town after the movie.

We tired of the cruise crawlers and wanted a respite. This was the answer! Beautiful old theater restored to its glory! Staffed by volunteers with love and pride. The concessions include the usual popcorn but with REAL butter and you can season yourself. No overly salty stuff here. Also candy, grilled items, and assortment of beer and wine. The cinema... More

To be truthful, only saw the outside of the building. Still, it looks great and the first-run movies on the marquee were terrific. Serious and artful.

Love being able to feel relaxed & not rushed in this small town feel theater. Enjoying a cocktail is nice as well.

We were very happily surprised to find this gem of a cinema right off Duval Street. It has been lovingly restored and shows some wonderful independent flicks :)

They were gonna tear this movie theater down and it was saved. The people that work there are volunteers that actually care about the art of film. Seeing a movie here is like stepping back in time. Even though we saw a current film (though have mostly independent films), it was still a great experience.

It is a cinema between the historic and the modern one. You can watch the actual movies. You get a feeling of the 50ies there. Expect it!
