“fabulous spot for "off-the-beaten path" flicks”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

The "Nick," as it's known to Santa Cruzans, is a comfortable theater that shows the movies you don't get to see in the huge megaplexes. Great snack bar and popcorn. One of the theaters is especially small, which means I ended up sitting closer to the screen than I like, but that's avoidable if you get there a little early.

“Wonderful, intimate local theater”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The "nik" has foreign and carefully selected films of all kinds. It is a locals haunt right on the edge of the Santa Cruz main street. Their snack bar is the ONLY one where we ever buy a snack because the are reasonably priced and excellent! Try their popcorn, a great cup of coffee and a fresh cookie or piece of cake. 4 or 5 different shows playing each week.

“Great for foreign films!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We are so lucky to have this movie theater in Santa Cruz. You will get to see films that are only shown in Berkeley or Palo Alto. Every year I make a point of always seeing the Oscar nominated films include foreign and shorts. Every year I depend on Nickelodeon to show them and I am never disappointed. Very same theater, but never over crowed. Good priced matinees.

“Movie Fun”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We decided to see a movie because we had to much sun the day before. What a cute movie house. It's small but has everything you need. I particularly enjoyed their organic popcorn
