Overview

We show first-run films of high artistic quality. We’ve added special programming like classic Hollywood and foreign language films; filmmaker appearances and lectures; Saturday kids matinees; and theatrically broadcast events such as from the National Theatre in London. We endeavor to improve the quality of hospitality and service from the theater’s staff. The Garden is operated as a nonprofit, tax-exempt entity. All revenues, memberships and gifts are reinvested in the theater.

Not particularly attractive or comfortable, but venue offers really nice combination of art house and classic movies, rather like the old Thalia in NY. The reason to go here is that they are showing a film you want to see.

Nice quaint theater in the heart of Princeton that usually shows quirky and/or independent movies rather than the usual selection of "blockbusters"

Plays a little t of indie movies that you don't see other places in NJ. Refreshments are mostly natural, has a counterculture vibe. Not the fanciest, but a great place to see off beat films.

The Princeton Garden is now under new management as of the fall of 2014. I think the improvements have finally made this into a great independent movie theater. The renovations are nice and improved the comfort, but the biggest change it he programming. The Garden...More
