After a day in beautiful Alexander Spring, this was a nice surprise in "Brick town" (Ocala). City centre of Ocala is Brick Town and to European standards small. But at least some some sort of old city centre. Few good restaurants and the Happy Days cinema. Very decent prices for the newest movies. Only two choices since they have only... More

We visited the Marion Theatre this past weekend to watch the new Jason Borne movie. The theatre was very clean and not crowded at all. The snack bar even serves adult beverages. We were pleasantly surprised by the $8 ticket prices and they offer various discounts for students, etc... We found this much more reasonably priced than the theatre we... More

Located just a block off the square in downtown Ocala is this magnificent little movie theatre. Completely remodeled, sort of retro flare, the once grand old theatre with straight back seats and a stage, is now very plush. Their refreshment stand offers wines, by the glass or bottle, beers, and the usual movie theatre treats. Plush oversized seats, still attached... More

This is a great theatre with an old classic feel to it. Love the atmosphere! It's a smaller theater and not as crowded either. It is very clean and the staff are very friendly. The ticket prices are less expensive compared to the other theaters in the area. During the summer at 10:00am on select weeks, they have summer movies... More

We loved this theater with its old style ambiance and excellent selection of movies. The snack bar is also very nice. We recommend this theater to anyone who lives in Marion County and in particular Ocala, FL

The Marion Theatre is very retro. It's like you're stepping back in time. I have been there quite a few times.

This is a little gem in the heart of downtown Ocala. There is a bonus on Tuesdays, free small popcorn and soda! Although there are some modern additions to the movie experience , i.e., beer and wine, the overall feeling is of the small hometown theaters of our youth (youth that is, if you are a baby boomer!) clean and...
