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!

Nestled among tropical trees on Burns Court, the cutest street in Sarasota. Good selection of films. Four screens in small rooms, an old-timey feel.

They specialize in IFC and foreign films. Become a member and pay only $5 per ticket. Best popcorn in town and wine is available.

This is a charming theater in the historic Burns Court area of Sarasota. The theater is small with only about 3 or maybe 4 rooms. Brick walls, cement floors and fairly comfortable chairs is what you will find here. Wine and beer are served in addition to snacks. You can see films that are not in the mainstream theaters. It...
