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

If you are looking for the best in movie theater entertainment look no further. This Theatre shows the movies the mainstream theaters do not. There is a lovely café there to get a bit to eat and listen to some great music before or after your show

Nice, small, family theatre with wine and food. The popcorn was okay but nothing to write home about.

reminds me of old classic movie theatre-shows movies that are not main stream but great movies-prices are reasonable-concessions have good fare

The Little is THE movie house in Rochester. Great foreign and indie films presented in an excellent atmosphere; then there's the live music. Arrive early on Fridays in December; and have a bite to eat while listening to beautiful music by Year of the Ram.Then, enjoy your show!

My favorite place in Rochester. The Little does a great job of bringing in films you cant see on the big screen anywhere else. Great location, cool old marquee, fun place to visit!

This is a great theatre complex, kind of like going back 30 years ago. Very artsy and great culture. There is one old large theatre up front and the rest are in the rear with a small parking area. Plenty of street parking though also. Prices are reasonable and they show great flicks there both international and new movies. They... More

We want to the little theatre to see "The Skeleton Twins". The movie was much better than expected and the atmosphere felt very inviting. It's not as flashy as the larger theaters that have fancy seats or huge screens but the theatre is much more fun and plays much more unique movies. Highly recommended to visit.
