If you are looking for a smaller more intimate indie theater and aren't into the huge sound systems that will make your seat vibrate, this place is for you. Seating is good and staff is friendly. It's on campus but the way is clearly marked with signs. Plenty of parking. And with dinner in Santa Fe, a great way to... More

We go to indie cinemas everywhere we travel. We find The Screen compares well to others in similar sized US cities. There is always something to see that is entertaining or thought provoking. Light refreshments. Go early for a good seat.

Lovely big screen and stadium seating as well as art, alternative and documentary films. Saw a documentary about Janice Joplin last week and it was marvelous. The theatre is housed at the College of Art and Design.

We have always seen very interesting and different indie films here. I'm always surprised there are not many people given that it is a great theatre. Where else can you get a Mexican coke to take into the movie? You definitely should check it out, whether you are a local, a visitor, or a semi-local like me.

This little theater on the campus of the College of Art and Design shows interesting films you probably won't see elsewhere in the city. Plenty of parking, easy access, friendly staff. Not a huge selection, but mostly very thought provoking films.

Great screen, great sound and always a great selection of foreign / independent films! By far the best cinema in Santa Fe and perhaps anywhere!

We went two times to see arty movies that are shown at special theaters where we live. It was close to Days Inn where we stayed.

It's at the SF University of Art and Design, between St. Michael's and Cerillos. If you like the smaller films it's a great place to watch them. Easily the best sound system of any theater in Santa Fe.
