Returned to Burns Court Cinema for the much heralded "Brooklyn". Fantastic film in one of three small theaters. Get there early for a good seat and to find parking. It's worth it. This group always has some of the best lesser known films. Play your cards right and go next door to Owen's Fish Camp, southern style fresh seafood and... More

Lakewood Ranch Cinema is an excellent venue to enjoy first run movies at $5.00 if you are a member of SFS. The movie was excellent, and the theatre is in a great location to grab dinner after the movie.

This is the place to go to see art house motion pictures. They always have the best selections and it is a wonderful place to go on a rainy day or any other time you need a flick fix. They serve wine so you can sit back and relax.

My husband and I decided to go to Burns Court Cinemas today for a movie with dinner afterwards. What a nice little theatre! I have been here a couple of times before but have not added a review. It's small but the seats are comfortable and they do have a concession stand that even has wine. We saw I'll See... More

Looking for something to do on a rainy afternoon during our vacation - we were thrilled to see that there was a fine arts movie theater not far from where we were staying in Longboat Key. what a treat - and it's in a great location for exploring the neighborhood. And, if you time it right - Owen's fish Camp... More

Small theater offers films not heavily marketed or independent but high quality acting and cinematography, including foreign films. Tucked away on a side street, you could miss it and parking nearby can be an issue. Cheap popcorn and great staff.

I love Burns Court Cinema. They always play the best, not your every day movies. It's small, so no large crowds.

I watched an Argentine movie here that I had heard about on NPR. It was the perfect thing to do while my husband was off fishing for the afternoon. It's a nice, small place to watch an independent film.

We support small cinemas catering to Independent films! The Burns court cinemas did not disappoint! Our choice of film was the Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel! The cinema was small! however, were were surprised with the participation of the audience! Comfortable seats and good sound!
