“A Softie for Arts Cinemas, and This One is Great!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Cinema Arts Theater was the only place we could find a Canadian movie my husband was interested in. We'd never been there and were surprised to find it tucked alongside a super-sized grocery store and other smaller mall occupants. It was like finding an old friend. The titles matched our "non Hollywood action movie" tastes. And speaking of taste . . . they have self-serve real butter for the popcorn. We've seen that at the Garden in Princeton NJ, but rarely elsewhere. We'll be back!

An "almost" art movie house but also first runs. Above average food. Bargain prices certain including Senior pricing on Wednesday.

“Great selection of films”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

They usually show highly rated films, some of which are the winners at various film festivals. Great pricing, much lower than at the chain movie theatres, and they have student and senior discounts. It is a little outdated as far as the seating and sound, but you get great value for your money.

“A Community Cinema worth supporting”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

In a world dominated by large. studio-owned chains, it's a pleasure to be able to support a locally-owned cinema that shows indie and foreign movies ignored by the big chains. Prices are always reasonable but $5 Wednesdays for Seniors are especially good for mature cinema fans like me and my wife.
