If wasn't for this classically-styled theater, the Des Moines area would miss out on a lot of award contenders and other independent movies. Support them! In addition to the typical concessions, they also serve wine and other small eats.

We visited the Fleur Cinema for a late matinee showing. Staff was very accommodating, seats were comfortable, audio/video was very good and we enjoyed being able to order a glass of wine to enjoy during the movie. Movie ticket and drink prices were very affordable.

Great theater for independent movies. Clean and modern lobby. Lots of legroom. Chocolate cake was great, along with popcorn and coffee. Will come back!

This place reminds you of the theaters in the old days. Nice place and reasonable prices. Didn't try the food or the drinks but interesting idea to be able to combine those with your movie...

If you get a chance, go to the Fleur Cinema for a movie. It's an older theater that was remodeled some years ago, but it is very well-kept. It's the one theater in Des Moines that has the "independent" films most of the chains won't show. Service is very good and concessions are well priced. You can even have dessert,... More

I absolutely adore the Fleur Cinema. It's more of an old school theater which I enjoy, especially for the less "special effects" pictures. Their concession prices are reasonable, and I think their popcorn is some of the best. I'm also a fan of the giant Rice Krispie treats. The only thing that keeps it from being a 5 for me... More

We really enjoy this theatre and have been there many times. Although we only had popcorn and a diet coke, there are plenty of option to choose from including bakery items, deserts (great cheesecake as I understand), espressos/lattes, beer, wine, etc. Plenty of friendly staff and service, but apparently nobody cleans bathrooms which is an area that the theatre administration...

Fleur Cinema always has a few of the movies that are a bit out of the norm. Most recently saw Chef there (really fun film by the way). It is clean, comfortable and their employees truly seem to be there unlike the drones often found at Century or Windsong.

I would't bother with a mall multiplex showing the same dozen movies shown everywhere--who'd care? This cinema is not a chain. I discovered it on a recent business trip to Des Moines, and it made me wish I had something like this back home. In the very large lobby of this four-screen cinema are many comfy retro-design chairs (and a... More
