We watch a movie at this venue every couple of months or so. It shows foreign films (Grand Budapest Hotel), or independent films that are interesting but may not have a wide audience. A visit to the Tower Theater will transport you to 1938 when it was originally built. In the 1980's the single screen was replaced by three different screens. The foyer appears Art Deco in style. Chairs look decades old.

Parking can be a problem, and we often have to park on the street. On our last visit to the Tower Theater we missed a street sign that said that one had to be a resident to be able to park on that street, and we found a ticket on our windshield.

This theater has such a old world charm to it. Went here for a play and it was very entertaining. Really enjoyed the friendly staff and the great actors. Can't wait to visit to see another play again.

The best atmospheric theater to see independent movies old and new. We live about an hour away but go often and frequently meet friends for movie and meal at the Tower Restaurant.

I saw "When Harry Met Sally" here the night before my Masters exam in 1989. The Art Deco outside and the hippy dippy style of the staff and inside just makes going to the movies a little more special. A real Sacramento treasure.
