Where can you go for a bite to eat beforehand, see an art film, a documentary or a mainstream film and then have a decadent dessert while listening to folk music or jazz? The Little Theatre!
Now this is not a fancy, new place...but a cozy, old-style theatre, which is really a group of small film rooms. A favorite place of mine. Why not make it yours?

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.

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.

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.
