“Tops in Northern New Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

FIVE STARS to the Screen! Absolutely the best cinema in Northern New Mexico. Great sound, comfy seats, and excellent projection...not to mention the on spot programming for anyone looking for the latest indie or foreign films. Staffed by some of the nicest, film-savvy people around. A big step up from your run-of-the-mill refreshments, too. Why spend time at a chain cinema when one can have a superior viewing experience (plus plenty of parking) at The Screen? Tip: the multiple viewing punch cards are a great way to save money. Sign up for their emails to get the coming week's showtimes.

“Always interesting films”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Unlike many commercial houses, this campus based locale has banked rows of seats allowing good viewing of the variety of showings. Documentaries and "art house film" with occasional first run films. We are here about three or four times a month. Check out passes which are cheaper per film showing, sold in six film sets. This is a real small town treasure.

“Superior Screening Room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

This spectacular theater presents a full gambit of international and domestic independent films. Located on the old College of Santa Fe Campus, it is one of the best theaters I have frequented and I include New York and San Francisco. It is spacious, immaculate with great seats. The front desk and projection employees are students with strong film backgrounds.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The Screen shows films you may never be able to see elsewhere. They also show LaScala operas and ballets from around the world. A real treasure.

“Sit behind the Hulk, it'll be okay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

The theater seating is ramped so sharply toward the front that unless you stand less than 5"0', you'll see the screen from corners to corners. Which is totally great!

Then again, the film selections are so eclectic it's hard to imagine anyone liking every film on the monthly dockets. Saw some wondrous cinema there, though
