Great location next to airport. Easy to get to with convenient parking. Staff was pleasant. Although not new seats, they were comfortable.

Expect to discover the have-nots of Hollywood film making. Always something worth seeing. Good seats, good screens, good sound, good popcorn, good beer, good food, good drinks, good staff all combine into a good experience.

Oh, where to start? A year after moving to Des Moines I️ was talking about Oscar contenders with a friend. He deftly pointed out that many of the films I sought were at The Fleur. Gasp! Horror! I had never been there? He insisted we...More

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...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...More
