I love this little theater in Asheville. My husband and I frequently make trips downtown and often catch a movie here. Tuesday afternoon movies are just $5. What a bargain! I also love that you can preview films on their window kiosk. So even if you don't have time to catch the whole film, watch the trailer. It's free.

A flash back to the OLD times, reminds of the old movie theaters. Wish they update the seats though.

Great selection of films in downtown Asheville where walking around the neighborhood is great and there are many, many great eateries.

Small theater with comfy seats, good prices. Special discounts on Tuesdays. Good choices of films. Pleasant environment. Center of town makes it a great convenient location.

This is NOT a run of the mill movie theatre. More of an art house but not exclusively. I always check their listings first before going to the regular theatres. Large screen, small house.

Great ( a bit off-beat. Not your typical) movie selection and seating. Previews running constantly in window so you can see what might appeal to you. Can even take a beer into theater with you...

Get a glass of wine or a beer and watch a movie in an old fashion movie theater. You can choose from movies that you will not find in the chain theaters, foriegn films and independent films, Really a gem in asheville.

Combine a gallery visit at Blue Spiral with a meal at Limones and a movie at the Fine Arts Theatre and you will be quite happy.

The movie theatre is a real treat and is so easy to visit when in downtown Asheville. Usually shows the best of Indy style Films. Good bar service. You can get a really small popcorn which is great if you are having dinner before or after the movie. This place has a great history.

Great movies - usually not your mainstream but always good! Even if you think you don't want to see a movie, their choices are thought provoking and entertaining.
