It is always a treat to go to the Little Theater. It is the type of place that you feel celebrates the arts in all its glory. Film, Music, works of art, food. It is a ambiance that stimulates all of the senses. It enhances the experience being in company of friends.

I went here for the first time ever to see a friend from high school perform. I was pleasantly surprised!

THE art cinema in Rochester, and deservedly popular. Plus there's a nice little cafe inside that occasionally has live music. Parking can be a pain — especially if the weather's bad. But overall it's a great place to take in a film — the best in Rochester.

Always enjoy our visits to the Little. We live outside the city but will make the trip to support the Little. We are lucky to have this place.

It's the go to place for foreign and Indie films in Rochester. And it has a much more interesting array of snacks than any other cinema in town as well.

There are many charming things about this theater, but I think the bit that strikes me most is that when they serve you popcorn they ask if you'd like real butter on it as well. The historic space, the delightful atmosphere, the diverse range of films are all nice, and all done well, but that butter on the popcorn really... More

The Little Theater is located in one of Rochester's entertainment hubs. It's a neat little place that shows a wide variety of films. The café has wonderful desserts and often hosts musical groups. The facility is a little worn but for most, that's part of its charm.

This venue certainly is a treasure nestled in the heart of it all! Music is wonderful and the films are by far the most intriguing. Friendly and welcoming!

This great theater has been at the forefront of art film appreciation. When they originally started, they introduced the concept of "food and a film", at least in the Rochester area. They have expanded nicely and continue to offer quality in both areas. Great place!

It is so pleasant to see a movie knowing that the audience will be attentive, that the cafe will have good music and food, and the price will be right. Rochester is fortunate to have a theater like The Little!
