and for the lover of artsy movies. The theater is small. Before or after the movie, you can choose to dine al fresco and listen to the fountain. Or order your food while watching the movie.
Wine and beer are also offered. The food is good quality, and the prices are fairly reasonable for an independent, non-profit theater. This is not your regular theater, but chairs around tables. Some tables are reserved for members, so if you are not a member, get there about 30 minutes early to get a good table. Tables are for two or four people, and the seats swivel for your viewing comfort. The seats need a good cleaning, and hopefully they will be during their renovation... This is a great place for two couples or a date night. Stay away from the glitz at Universal and try the Enzian for your enjoyment!

This is a beautiful building and location with meals served in the theater as well as outside on the covered patio. It's an easy 25 minute drive from Kissimmee and I got to see a film not showing anywhere else within 100 miles. Parking was virtually full at the time of the show, so heed their recommendation to get there early for stress free parking and to order your food and drinks before the show begins.

This gem is located in Maitland in a garden setting. It is the very best way to view award winning and indie films while having a food and drink option available while there. There is an outdoor covered bar and restaurant with an excellent selection of food and drinks. Inside the cinema, food and drink are available as well. Enzian is noted for offering films that the big chain theaters do not. It is home to the Central Florida Film Festival, and a valuable option for Central Florida residents and out of towners!

You MUST visit the Enzian Theater. Sure, it might not have the most delicious food but it makes up for it by having an amazing atmosphere and offering a unique experience to movie fans. This is the only place that shows award winning independent films that you wouldn't be able to watch anywhere else in Orlando. You can also catch those classic films that you've always wanted to watch again or that you've never had the opportunity to. The whole experience of sitting in big comfy armchairs, watch a good movie AND have a nice meal makes this place an absolute must. Their menu is varied but I recommend the amazing grilled cheese sandwich, the carnitas tacos and the Eden burger which is so delicious! You can also eat outside and grab a drink at the Eden Bar overlooking the lush garden (specialty drinks are overpriced but they have good specials and happy hour!)
Since this is a non-profit place, you can also buy a membership to help support the film society. The membership gives members discounts for movies and events, free popcorn per show as well as the opportunity to reserve their favorite seat in the theater.
Give it a try, you wont regret it!

Enjoy meeting friends at the Enzian, such a great variety of films. I have been very pleased with the food at the Eden Bar or having my meal served while watching a film inside the theater. Go at least once a month, so reasonable and fun.
