You should definitely plan to attend an event or see a show if you are in the Newport area. This is a great community theater. You can purchase wine or signature cocktails and they have fresh popcorn and other solid snack options. I suggest getting...More

Thank you for visiting our special historic space where we strive to be current. We've been showing films here since silent film and happy to still be doing so 95 years later! Come see us soon & often!

For those of you who enjoy going back in time to see a movie in an art house, the Pickens is the best place to check out the latest indie flick. Fine concession that includes beer, wine and assorted treats.

Great place, I love the consesion stand as you can get drinks (liquor) and a lot of other interesting items! The movies are good but geared to the more "artsy" group. Still worth it and I like to see business not run by gaint conglomerates....More

This is where we go to see great films that aren't showing at our local big cinemaplex. Great drinks, cheap popcorn and no bad seats at the theater.

I always enjoy this place, even if the movie isn't good. They don't totally screw you on concessions and they offer beer, wine and a few cocktails. Often they show movies you won't see in the chain cinemas. Some are really great, others not so....More

Always has films that are a step above the mass-appeal; great snacks/beverages. Parking is at a premium so come early. After the film, there are numerous good restaurants in walking distance.

I know Newport has a lot of things to offer but if you have a free afternoon or evening and/or a rainy day go to this theater. The theater is in the heart of Newport and it is a beautiful theater. Great lobby concessions and...More
