“Great movies, decent cafe, yummy popcorn!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We lived in Rochester for 2 years and "The Little" was always top of our list. It isn't like your crazy multiplex with all the usual blockbuster films, it is so much better than that showing independant movies.
The cafe is really good with great value for money and you can grab just a coffee and cake of a glass of wine and a meal.
The service at The Little was always excellent and should we ever find ourselves back in Rochester, it will be one of the first places we visit.

“Saw Twenty Feet from Stardom”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Loved the audience--mainly an older crowd. Loved the upscale treats. There is popcorn and pop, but they also have carrot cake and brownies. Yum.

“Easy, Economical, and Enjoyable way to Support Local Art”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

The Little Theatre is one of the great little institutions of Rochester helping to create a rich quality of life for Rochester residents.

Much has been mentioned in previous reviews about the offering of hard-to-find Independent and foreign films, gourmet nibbles and drinks, as well as live music. I have been frequenting The Little since the 1980's and have found it to be a place of inspiration.

The Little is run by a not-for-profit film society who does their very best to help preserve art and film. I think it quite appropriate for the city that raised George Eastman to have theatres like The Little, Dryden, and The Cinema to ensure we honor our roots. As their Web site states: "it is apparent that the Little, like many arts institutions, will not survive on box office and concession revenue alone. Community support is essential. With community support the Little will survive for another 75 years and beyond."

Folks who's employers participate in RARES (Regional Area Recreation Employee Services) can purchase discounted admission ahead of time for $6.50.
