“Singular cinematic offering”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

This little Little theatre is a treasure. Showing everything (less X-rated) from current indie flicks to mainstream movies, in an environment evocative of 1950s-60s theaters, this lovely place is wonderful.

“Great Films and Atmoshphere”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

The little has visiting film celebs in to speak as well as great films. Love their hand bills describing each film that you can read before you select a movie. We are never disappointed.

“Glory Days”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

Unfortunately, the Little is is need of a major overhaul. Depending which house you are visiting, you may be sitting in seats with loosely coiled springs and looking at overhead asbestos. The staff is always very pleasant and friendly. The theatre also tends to attract - and this has been my experience over the past ten years - the pretentious who enjoy talking throughout the film, trying to impress those around them. It is unfortunate the theatre houses films that are difficult to find elsewhere, but they try to appeal to a variety of audience and raise money for these renovations. It may be a theatre worth keeping an eye on, but for now, I rent these films through other sources rather than be uncomfortable for a couple of hours. Also, be aware that parking is limited and nighttime parking can be particularly problematic on weekends.

“AS GOOD AS IT GETS!”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

The Little Theatre(s) is actually a five theater cineplex in Rochester's funky and fashionable East End. The Little also features a wonderful little cafe and an art gallery to boot. Live music is featured five nights/week with no charge and the ambiance of the total complex is magnificent sand hip. It is one of the best first, second, third and forever date places in the world, let alone in Rochester, NY. Enjoy the best in foreign and independent films, a portobello mushroom panini, a glass of Rex-Goliath Merlot, and the best popcorn on the planet.
