This small 3 screen art house movie theater is one of the great great assets of Palm Springs. Very much off the beaten path and for those not familiar with the town probably hard to find. I worry often about the survival of this gem of a place as seldom are there any crowds except when it is used for... More

The cinema floor is nicely slopped so there are no bad seats. The seats are comfortable with soft chairs and plenty of leg room. We have seen a number of films here over the course of the PSFF and like this venue.

Located a mile from downtown PS on the side of what appears to be an abandoned shopping mall, there is lots of parking just outside the... More

Make sure you sign up for the newsletter from the web site for this theatre. Some extremely good thought provoking films shown here, and some films not on general release or perhaps a little hard to find in the main stream theatres.
