First time visiting this theater. It's tiny with only 5 rows of seats about 15 across. Very clean and comfortable. The snacks are geared toward vegans but there are other things to munch on also. Priced the same as other theaters. But remember the meters. In effect till midnight so check the length of the show. The people working there... More

A cute independent movie theatre with 3 movie rooms. Comfortable seats, great snack bar and friendly service. There's an ice cream shop right next door that has yummy traditional and vegan ice cream.

Gorgeous newly renovated cinema with extremely comfortable seats and a great lineup of movies. BUT the best thing I loved about The Showroom was their snack bar.... I'm a foodie. They had the most delicious snacks you would NEVER think would be sold in a cinema. My kids got kale chips, I got some gluten free cookies and a superb... More

The Showroom in Asbury Park is my favorite theater in the shore area. The owners are very hospitable and treat you like family. There are three small intimate theaters in which to view films. All the films are first rate and non- commercial. It is a pleasure to have The Showroom in Asbury Park, NJ.

This place is about 4.5 stars, but that's only because it's a bit expensive. They have a 13 seat venue which is like watching from your living room. That theater has comfortable chairs like you'd have at home. The 30 seat theatre is cozy, but not cramped. This like the biggest theater has traditional movie seats. The big theater holds... More

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.
