“Charming venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Happened upon this small cinema, and decided to take in a movie. A lovely space, fantastic lobby and sitting areas. Bonus: the most comfortable seats ever!

“Always friendly.”

Feel like you want to see a film with that home theater feel...it happens here...ok we got the people who think they need to narrate the film to each other but hey it could be worse.

“Makes seeing any movie an event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

They don't call this the Southernmost Hollywood Theater, but they could. From Seward Johnson's Marilyn outfront to the Hurrell portraits inside, you can tell the folks who designed and run this theater really love movies. The refreshments are a cut above multiplex fare and so is audience behavior. I have never heard a cellphone go off or noisy conversation during the main feature. I can think of no more uniquely conch way to spend a rainy afternoon in Key West.

“Fun and exceptionally clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The theatre is small, but it is perfect. Volunteers work the theatre, which is supported by the patrons. Saw Quartet. You can get popcorn and soda, wine or beer. Great place. Wish we had one of these in Charlotte.

Best old fashioned popcorn I can remember and a well stocked wine and beer list. Seating was the comfortable and it was immaculate.
