Discovered this gem when looking for a place to go for Valentine's Day. Went and enjoyed a movie with my wife and went back a couple weeks later for a movie with the whole family. Love the atmosphere, the popcorn, and of course the prices are amazing. Let's us get out and enjoy a movie in the theater without breaking... More

Big screen theater at its best. Price is right. Concessions are tasty and not over priced. Seating is comfy. Audience is well behaved. Lobby is retro as are the restrooms. Go, Go, Go. On street parking is always a bit of a walk from the theater.

What a discovery & great theater for a cold, snowy afternoon. Staff were very welcoming, seats were comfortable (even for a 'large' person). I was pleasantly surprised that it was so easy to find & get to in South Mpls.

You can not do better than the Riverview- excellent neighborhood place, great value, real butter on your popcorn. They have special showings during the holidays, and different shows from the cookie cutter places. I am so pleased to be able to take my family to such an affordable place. Thank you Riverview!!!

The prices are the best in town, the seats are comfortable, and the popcorn has real butter yes I said real butter. If you haven't' discovered this movie theater check it out. The only down side is they don't always get the movies I want and you just never know what movies they will choose to have and how long... More

This movie theater is great! It is $3 for second run movies so a great inexpensive adventure. It is wonderfully preserved and is just a neat place to visit. I personally love the gold bubblers and cat print wallpaper in the ladies room. The screen is big, the seats are comfortable and the popcorn is yummy & cheap by movie... More

I don't like going to other movie theaters because the Riverview is such a great place to watch a movie. It is large. The atmosphere says you are in a movie theater. The seats are new and clean. The movie selection is varied. The price is unbeatable. Popcorn is great. It is vintage! The Riverview owner also puts on events... More

The theater is giant, majestic, and super affordable with tickets and popcorn under 4 dollars. The whole place is well-maintained and super clean. The theater is giant and the picture resolution is of great quality. The thing is... they don't have a great variety of movies. This theater will almost never screen a great art film or any great film... More

The Riverview Theater is a movie theater with a nostalgic feel. While the movies aren't opening weekend fare, there are relatively new but for $2/person, you can't beat the price. The facility is pretty much like it's 1950's decor however some accommodations have been made to add wheelchair seating and modern projectors. There's only 1 auditorium (but it's pretty large...

This theater plays current releases in a beautiful old style theater surrounded by beautiful restaurants and shops that make up a great local neighborhood. Discounted prices, great surroundings and current releases. What's not to like.
