We first went to this theater on Museum Hill a few months ago and saw Under the Skin, a Scarlett Johansson film. It was a decent screening, and the seats were comfortable. The popcorn is very good--real butter! A couple of weeks ago we saw Chinese Puzzle. We were in a different auditorium, seats were very comfortable and it seemed... More

With a stadium seat auditorium with new comfortable seats, this is a well curated film theater. A second room has been added and a lobby with tables has been established for refreshments. They have plans to link up to their art gallery which has interesting and stimulating exhibits.

Also, a black-box style screening room for large-screen dvd presentations. Great programming (mainly indies and documentaries) and a wide choice of different films every week. Closed Mondays. Be sure to sign up for their weekly emails to get the latest... More

My favorite type of movie theater.....independent and foreign films. Not the best popcorn, but there was nutritional yeast to sprinkle on it :) Lots going on there....events, exhibits and lots of incredible films.

Santa Fe must have more cultural things to do per capita than any other city in the USA. This is a venue that challenges you and your concepts of what arts are. If you already have an appreciation for and understanding of contemporary arts, you will probably like this.

Like Santa Fe's "The Screen" cinema venue, the Cinematheque at the CCA provides an excellent venue for seeing films which do not generally get much in the way of commercial exhibition. I saw Lars von Trier's "Melancholia" there a few weeks ago, but, to give the flavour of what you can expect, the current week's programming demonstrates the range. There... More
