This is a great neighborhood theater where you can watch unique art films, as well as popular movies. I went to the The Showroom just yesterday to see the movie "Carol" (great film). Being on the shorter side, I tend to have difficulty seeing the screen if someone is sitting directly in front of me, which was the case yesterday,... More

Great small venue in restored building near shops and restaurants. Friendly staff. Variety of good snacks. There are 3 theaters. Although they are small, they are very comfortable

This is a charming little movie theater right in the heart of Asbury Park that plays primarily "art" films. There are 3-4 theaters and each of them only sets up to about 20 people. It's very intimate and fairly comfortable. The gals that work the front (tickets and concessions) are really helpful and friendly. Tuesdays movies are $6 if you... More

The popcorn is never ready, but the consessionaire delivers it to you in your seat. It's been a pleasure to watch how long they have come. It started out sitting in beach chairs, and every one getting a pillow to make them more comfortable to now a regular movie theater seat.

Outstandanding small town feel. A choice of three different sized viewing rooms, one for less than 20 people is just like you were sitting in an easy chair at home!

Awesome, tiny movie theatre, very clean with cozy seats, flowers in the theatre. I love indie movies and they are an amazing little place if you love movies! They also play vintage cartoons before the movie, which is great.

In the heart of downtown Asbury Park, is nestled one great, cozy, movie theater showing really good movies. The movie room are small and comfortable. And the snacks, delicious. Imagine, fresh coffee too. Not to miss.

Nice seating, small theaters, clean and the best food\snacks of any local movie house. Only problem is that sometimes it is sold out, and you cannot sit with your party.

This is a collection of very small screening rooms. So get there early if you want to get a ticket. This theater generally has artsy type movies that don't usually play in the big theaters, which is why i like it.
