“Excellent vintage cheap theater!”
Reviewed March 20, 2011

The Riverview is currently a second-run movie theater. Three bucks gets you into a movie that you'll be able to rent next week, but don't go for that reason alone. The REAL butter popcorn, authentic 50's decor, and enormous amphitheater seating are the real reason to go. A real Minneapolis gem!

Reviewed August 22, 2010

This place is a gem and a Minneapolis instituion. Cheap ticket prices and inexpensive sacks. Real buttered popcorn. The interior decor is frozen in time from 1960.

“Funky cheap theater”
Reviewed January 29, 2009

The $3 to see a movie is worth it just to see the vintage interior of the movie theater. You have to check out the bathroom too. It is one of the oldest stadium seating movie theaters in existence. The screen is smaller than new movie theaters so I would recommend sitting closer to the front so the screen fills your view more. The just put in new seating in the last year.
