Last week we went to see a movie about wild mustangs. It was a benefit for All The King's Horses Equine Rescue. They rented one of the theaters there for this movie. The theater is beautiful inside, well worth the trip to New Haven.

Long layover waiting in the train. Caught the free shuttle to explore and found this place. 10 minute walk back to Union Station after the movie. If you've got a couple hours to kill, it's worth the walk or the ride.

Very comfortable cinema. Smaller size, not a megaplex. Shows mainstream films, arthouse, and revival films. Check for the weekend midnight movies and Sunday "movie and mimosa" matinees. Easiest parking is directly across the street in the parking garage.

It always seems too expensive when parking is considered, but the titles, projection and seats are good. and does not have Cine 1-14 goofy reserved couches.

First of all, they validate parking. All you have to do is ask for a validation...it lowers it to 3 dollars, which is a bargain. Second of all, they serve wine and beer, which you can now take into the theatre with you. Thirdly, they...More

The expensive ticket prices are surely 2017 but everything else here feels like you stepped back to 1977. There is a quaint pace here with low key staff and an aura that is less hyped than movie chains. Check out the original piping and ventilation...More
