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.

Small theatre showing independent films. All of the films begin at the same time so once they are running, the lobby seems deserted. Nice night out!

Quaintest (is that a word?) little movie theatre shows some of the most powerful films around. Three small intimate screens where you feel safe, comfortable and among adults frankly. Join the membership to save on films, popcorn and wine if you plan to frequent the...More

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