“One great movie theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

My husband and I frequently watch films at The Screen which one might call an "art house". It shows award-winning movies from around the world, ones that are rarely shown at regular movie theaters. Most recently we saw "The Reluctant Fundamentalist".
The theater not only offers excellent choices, but also has very comfortable seats and better-than-average snack choices.
For out of towners, it is a little off the beaten path but is worth finding on a map if a first class movie is what you have in mind.

This is an awesome independent cinema. The movies that are presented here are wonderful.

“Great little repertory theater in Santa Fe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

For a small city, Santa Fe has a bunch of movie options. The Screen is a repertory theater, meaning it shows some interesting films that you won't find in the main stream locations. I saw the German film "Barbara" there and it was a very enjoyable experience. You can get fresh coffee and some other stuff in the lobby. This is part of the University Of Santa Fe off of St. Micheal's drive. It's a little hard to find, so be patient.

“Great movie selections”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Got "hooked" on The Screen during a film noir marathon, and have enjoyed the wonderful films ever since. This is a definite "hidden gem".
