A jewel of a tiny movie theater to catch all the independent films that you would otherwise have to travel far from home to see.

Three small theaters, seating about 24 each, offers an intimate setting to watch small independent movies. Dinner and movie offers for local eateries are also available.

Asbury Park's Showroom Cinema is a terrific venue for serious movie fans. We recently visited to see "LBJ," which exceeded our expectations and would not have been nearly as gripping in a larger theater.

Comfortable environment. Friendly staff that care whether you like the film or not. Their Arthouse film selection is the best in the area. The big award contenders as well as gems you didn't know you wanted to see but are glad you did. Always fun...More

We were fortunate to watch a film in the upstairs showroom, which is more of comfortable, cozy sitting room with a great screen and sound system, then a typical theater. It was an incredible, intimate experience that we can't wait to return for.

This place is a hidden gem. The folks who run the Showroom are movie lovers who offer the comfort of a living room setting to watch their carefully selected independent films. You just don't have the option of moving around chairs and ottomans in MEGAPLEX-24...More

This place is wonderful, 3 (?) small theater rooms, one with living room lounge chairs; even the snacks are special. Right next door for after the movie is one of the 10 best ice cream shops in NJ.

Didn't know what to expect at the Showroom on our first visit but found ourselves seated in a very comfortable 15 lounge chair theatre. Like having a private screening room in your own mansion. Our second visit was a larger venue - maybe 50 theatre...More
