We visited on Friday, September 12, 2014. This is an art deco style theater in downtown Fargo. Well restored and in very good shape. The sign is iconic in Fargo.

Great 1920s Art Deco building on the National Register. A very-well-maintained older theater with a balcony.

Quaint, comfortable, beautiful place to watch independent and foreign films. Great service too. You will feel like you stepped back in time when you go to the beautiful art deco Fargo Theatre - with a grand main screen (and a Wurlitzer on Friday and Saturday nights!) and a second screen for smaller films. Always a must when in Fargo. Location... More

This is a wonderful & quaint theater. It is historic and restored in 1999. It is small, but comfortable. The prices for admission and concessions were quite reasonable as compared to the larger chain theaters.

This theater is wonderful. It almost makes you feel like you are on the set of a movie yourself! The art deco is perfect. The balcony is perfect. We did not want to leave. It is also quite neat to be able to view movies that are not at the "mall". Fargo has one of the best downtown feels I... More

If you are visiting the Fargo-Moorhead area, or a long time resident, the historical Fargo-Theatre is a must visit. It has been grandly remodeled to look as it did when it was built in 1926. It is the host of the annual Fargo Film Festival in addition to a variety of other events and concerts as well as daily independent... More

We went to see the movie Chefs while in Downtown Fargo. It was an enjoyable movie theater - historic theater decorated in art deco. Good movie theater, nice staff, and great location. Parking was nearby. Their popcorn was also good.

Having lived the first 17 years of my life growing up in Fargo/Moorhead, I recently returned for a visit after 20 years. When I lived here my friends and I spent many many times seeing movies at the Fargo Theater. As I returned I was happy to see it had been restored to the old days of glory. Great job.
