This is an older theater that has been updated but still retains the old movie theater feel. Huge selection of every type of movie snack imaginable (cookies, candy, coffee, mixed drinks, ice cream, and more). Theaters are a bit small but the screen was nice and clear. Overall, very nice!

First of all this is a Non-Profit theatre. It is staffed by volunteers. The individual theatres are quaint maybe only 50 seats top in each one. They feature first run movies in addition to independent movies as well. Such a refreshing change from the movie theaters at home. We went one afternoon to escape the humidity. The prices were in...

Very cool little cinema located downtown Key West. Feels like how the old time cinemas would have been like.

This cinema is run by volunteers. It is clean and comfortable and we enjoyed taking a break from the sun to catch a movie.

My son and husband needed a break from walking and came for a matinee of Monuments Men. They loved the art deco setting and the refreshments.

Operated by volunteers, showing all types of films, and in a modern clean facility. This place is another of the genuinely nice things about Key West and reflects the vibrancy and volunteerism of the people more permanently living in the community.

I absolutely love this place. From the friendly staff to the amazing film (and snack!) selection to the cleanliness of the theaters, this is one of my favorite places to go on the island. I'm proud to support such a great place.

We came here since it was rated quite well on trip adviser but don't know why it's rated so high. Yes it's an older style cinema with a couple of cool looking statues out front but it looks the same as many other older cinemas. Perhaps if you've never seen one before but since the average tourist is at least... More

What a terrific place to see a movie! Friendly staff, clean theaters, and a very intimate feel. Makes me never want to go back to a multi-plex!
