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!

We visited Sarasota for a week, and went to Burns Court twice because they have a choice of three interesting films. We were staying at the hotel Ranola in downtown so it was an easy stroll to the cinema. Burns Court is a very attractive area, and the cinema is next to Owens Fish Camp. On one of the visits...

Saw a movie there with friends. i liked the small friendly venue. I could see and hear the movie well and did not feel I was sitting in the bleachers somewhere! The Burns Court area is fun and interesting. Will be going back! Price was right as well!

Small arts theatre. Shows a lot iof indie films -- things that you won't see at the chain theatres. Convenient downtown location.
