Decent prices and very interesting movies for the most part. Since it's located in the old Metcalf South shopping center, we're not sure how much longer we're going to be able to enjoy this place....

I am so glad we have the Glenwood Arts Theatre in the Kansas City area. It consistently screens important films necessary for any true metropolitan community. To enhance your experience, they have recently added a cafe that serves lovely sandwiches, soups, and delicious desserts. Wonderful place!

The theatres are small and intimate. The seats are not the most comfortable, BUT it is worth it to see movies with mature audiences and no kids. The employees are always friendly. Convenient location with no-hassle parking.

If you want to see indecent and thought provoking movies this is where to go. They have a good selection and timely movies. They fill up so get there early.

This is an older theater that offers great films for the mature guest. While they offer a smaller intimate theater experience with no noisy children. We watched the movie Chef and loved it! Give the Glenwood Arts a chance..

I feel like I'm entering an old time theater in a very small town in the 1960s. Wish they'd update the bathrooms. If their movies were being shown at the big theaters, I'd go there.

If you prefer independent, original films to the Hollywood remakes, then this is the place for you. Comfortable seats, good popcorn and other treats. And the prices are very competitive and much cheaper than the chains' rates on weekends.

The Fine Arts group saved the seats, marque, and other items from the old Glenwood Manor Theater. Great idea and we enjoyed watching a movie there but it lost something in the move. It was a fun setting but the restrooms were in need of repair. However that being said, the tile and other items were more than 20 years... More

Charming theater, lovingly preserved. Comfortable seas (but no cup holders). Shows great indi films. Reasonable prices! Popcorn is good too, and the soda was fresh. All in all, a great movie going experience. A little difficult to find though. It is in the back of an older mall that only has few stores. The good news is that parking is... More

The theater was small so arrive early if you want a good seat, or at least a choice. Tickets are a little less than the main movie theaters.
