“Call before you go”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We went to the theatre on Thursday afternoon and looked for available parking. There is none, except a public lot about 2 blocks away. I found street parking and ran back to the theatre only to be told that the movie was sold out - very unusual for early on a weekday. Probably won't go back, but am glad that many people like and support this theatre.

“Wonderful theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

This is a terrific venue for movies. The theaters are small and play the more intelligent movies - this is not for you if your preference is car chases and brainless comedies.

“Everything great an independent movie theater should be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Burns Court Cinema gets it right: great location, great staff, usually pretty good choice of movies and you can have an adult beverage while you watch. Love going to this place, by far and away, my fave in the area. When you add that you are supporting a non-profit, in the Sarasota Film Society, its a win-win. Keep up the great work!

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

We love it and we support it. Great evening out. Old time movie experience. Small rooms, quiet audience, great films, beer and wine as a choice at the concession stand.

“Sarasota's so-called Arts Movie House”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

We do not frequent the Burns Court Theatre much because the seats are uncomfortable, the size of the screens in each auditorium are small, and they do not offer senior price tickets.
