Cute little retro theater with cheap prices and fresh popcorn. Great place for a date night. Check out the wine bar across the street and then catch a movie.

We love this theater! It is such a great place to come and enjoy a movie with the community. It's literally big enough to hold the whole neighborhood! Great popcorn with REAL BUTTER, and great prices!

Tastefully done with accuracy and subtley, this marvelous theater was a delightful step back into a golden age of movie-going - 1950s and 60s. One big, attractive, clean viewing area! No subdivided cineplex. The return of the communal sense of attending a movie. The improvement upon the era - updated sound and optional beverage holders with the comfy seats. Only... More

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
