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.

Great time with my kids in this small theatre that has 2 or 3 sections. Comfortable chairs and in a cute area of restaurants and shops. No lines, no wait.

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