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...

I like this little theater. Do not love it but like it. The advantages are that it has fresh, no not fresh 4 days ago, I mean fresh as in just made just now, popcorn. It is a small theater and in a upscale area of downtown. The seats are terrible, accountics non-existent and you can hear the sound from... More

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...

Hard to find the first time and parking is always a problem...but this charmer plays unique movies and always worth checking out. Sometimes the movies are awful and more frequently, they're pleasant and entertaining. The popcorn is fabulous and they serve wine so you can decadently watch the movie. Get there early since the old folk do come early and... More

Great popcorn! The only place in town showcasing independent films. Been here since the mid 1980's and hasn't changed. Charming, tasteful and a not-for-profit organization who cares about quality films! Support Burns Court and enjoy your time watching great films. There's no place like it.

My kind of movies...with wine and popcorn, to boot. Well worth a yearly membership for discounted movies and weekly updates. Love this place!
