Nice place to see the significant but not so commercial movies (don't look for Aquaman). Wine and beer are available and the theaters are intimate. I have loved going there for about 15 years. It's a treat.

Saw "A Fantasic Woman". All the money from ticket sales, popcorn, candy, etc. goes to support the Film Society of Sarasota. Theater is small. There is free parking at a lot on Orange - a couple of blocks away.

There is no parking for the theatre. Be prepared for a long walk unless you get lucky.
