The theatre itself is fine and is a nice place to watch an independent film - the seats are comfortable and it's nice to not have to sit through commercials (they only show one trailer and no corporate ads). But when we asked for a cup of tap water at the concession stand, the staff person wouldn't give us one,... More

This theater only plays two movies at a time. The movies are sometimes good, sometimes bad. The seats are pretty comfortable, but definitely not the best. While the cushion was fine, I didn't really have that much leg room. The bathrooms are clean. They are also a little pricier than most main stream movie theaters. If you are looking to... More

Always love going to this theatre. It shows first run movies as well as indies. Seating is stadium, but seats could use updating. Plenty of parking nearby and concession prices are quite reasonable.

If you are downtown Princeton, for example, at the University, you can walk to the Garden Theatre. By today's standards, its a small town theatre having only two screens.
