“Love this place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Long life to the Screening Room! Always good movies at a fraction of the price (same for popcorn) - small room for about 40 people contributes to an intimate viewing, good sound and right downtown. Did I say I love this place?

“Great Films!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Don't expect to be able to find this place until its box office opens in the evening. It's tucked away on the second floor of what looks like an office building.

Once inside it looks to be run by real movie buffs. The films they have chosen are definitely not Hollywood and seem well-selected based on quality and diversity.

The theatre I sat in was quite small, flat-floored and nothing fancy but the screen was in new condition and the sound was excellent.

At the box office area they sell an eclectic mix of snacks and drinks. I recommend the Egyptian licorice tea - that they serve in a real cup that you return when finished.

The people that worked there seemed happy and invested. I will be back there tomorrow night!

“SPECIAL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

See a movie the way it was meant to be seen.
As if you were in the comfort of your own Living Room - with Friends & Coffee or Tea in china CUPS.
Popcorn in hand & INTERESTING / Worthwhile movies on wide screen with latest technology Projection.
And WENDY makes it Personal.

“LITTLE KNOWN GEM IN KINGSTON”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

Great movies, many that do not make it to the Big Name Theatres. Terrific prices. Best popcorn in town. Not usually too busy. Special prices some nights - check website.

“Off the main track and older movies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Looks like you have the wrong place from the outside a syou have to go around a corner and up a flight of stairs to get to the theatres. My friend loved the popcorn. I enjoyed the small intimate theatre and a very good foreign film.
