The film center has made a major difference on the island. It runs interesting films (and hosts other events), sometimes with appearances by the filmmakers or others connected with them. (this summer I attended two such events with fascinating Q & A sessions). Highly recommended. and become a member for discounts on the tickets not to mention supporting a fine... More

We love the range of films avaialble on the Vineyard and mourn the loss of several theatres on the Island. The Film Center offers interesting films and the theatre has comfortable seats with good views of the screen from all parts of the theatre. Interesting snack bar as well and parking has not been a problems

Although most of us travel to the Vineyard to partake in outdoor activities, there definitely is a place for a quality movie house, such as the Film Center in Vineyard Haven. My family took advantage of some terrific movie offerings this past week, and it was especially nice for my father-in-law, who has limited mobility, and wanted to have interesting... More

The only thing larger than the ticket prices...Richard's ego! Come on, this is a small island off the coast of Massachusetts, not NYC.

...has become a community's treasure! Thank You, Richard P, for your blood, sweat, & tears in bringing the Film Center to life! Always great bookings, & fun programming (Guests, Speakers, theme-night co-ops with local restaurants). Much more than just Good Movies. We live here, we love the Film Center, and we'll see you on movie night!

Although we all love Martha's Vineyard for it's sylvan setting and glorious beaches and water views, sometimes you need a little entertainment of a more sophisticated nature. Sadly, except for the small Edgartown twin theater that mostly exhibits blockbuster and wide releases (fun, too, but not all the time) the rest of the ancient theaters on the island are in... More

We love this new film center. Richard and his crew do a tremendous job of film selection and customer service. Can't wait for the September Film Festival.

The film selection is fantastic, the amount of special and advanced screenings is great, the snack selection is wonderful, the seating comfortable, and has all the great touches of a more personalized independent movie theater.

This is a small personal theater. The snack bar is also small, offering a different selection--you probably will not find junior mints here. The seating is very comfy, the sight lines are great (i am short & too often have sat behind tall people --not an issue here). The selection of movies offered is varied, sometime quirky, and often a... More
