The cafe is very casual, order your food and they bring it to the table...food was fresh and tasty. Soup was wonderful, had a little wine. and then headed in to a... More

Enjoy an old time movie experience in a landmark movie theatre with real popcorn Have dinner in the Café ahead of time. Five off the beaten path movies to choose from. There's always something to see and good stuff to eat. Have a glass of wine and enjoy live jazz after the film.

This independant movie theater helps Rochester give character. The choice of movies, the gigs by local musicians, the display of the works by local artists, the delicious food and baked goods in a cozy place is a breath of fresh air in an America of strip malls and chain movie theaters.

We went to the Little for the first time in a decade yesterday and were not disappointed. It offers at tasty fresh-baked goodies, gourmet coffee, traditional popcorn, and an audience that does not talk during the film! Yes, these film goers know it is not their living room! As a person who loathes overly loud places, I loved this sound... More

We go in streaks when it comes to seeing movies at the Little. We are downtown all of the time but when we do see movies we tend to go for the suburban stadium seating... we need to stop doing that and be more diligent supporting this venue. The Little's selection of movies always draws us back usually after seeing... More

I've eaten here before, but last night I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw that they'd added two items from the Orange Glory Café to their menu, a spinach burger and a lentil burger--thus expanding their limited but good vegetarian items. Orange Glory is a favorite place for lunch in the East End, but they're not open for dinner.... More

I remember back in my high school years making the trip to the The Little to see Akira and Hoop Dreams. This was before I really got into my whole independent film craze. I don't come here as much as I like, but I usually show up a few times a year to catch some films I cannot find anywhere... More

My girlfriend and I decided to attend the Little Theatre last night to see Selma. I appreciate the Little for the opportunity to view independent movies and movies that are only offered on select theatres. We arrived at 7pm, tge next showing if our movie wasn't until 930pm we were fine with that because it would give us a chance... More

An Oasis, along with the Eastman Theatre, for movie lovers. I have only been in the main theatre (not smaller theatres 2-5) and I enjoyed the old-timey size and atmosphere - and the movie. There is a campaign to replace the seats in the main theatre and the timing is good on that initiative, they are old-fashionedly narrow and worn.... More

We love to go to the Little Theatre. We start with dinner; they have a limited menu but the food in fresh and delicious and you can get vegetarian and vegan choices (just leave out the cheese). They also serve wine. The popcorn is fresh with real butter and they have other yummy choices for the theater. All this and... More
