“Typical theater from the 1970's”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

I hadn't been at the Cinema Arts for a number of years. Went to a late afternoon matinee. The complex has 6 theaters - the theater we were in was surprisingly large from what I remembered. I presume like many multiple screen theaters, they are of varying size. The seating was comfortable, the theater was not crowded so viewing was good and the prices were decent for a movie today. Nothing was negative, but it is an older theater - no stadium seating. For the price, it was fine.

“small theatres, new releases, great price”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

This movie theatre is smaller, but it's clean and reasonably-priced. They show new releases, and there are several inexpensive eateries you can walk to nearby. The theatre is inconspicuously tucked back inside the corner of Fair City Mall.

“Delightful Little Independent Movie Theater”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

I have enjoyed seeing movies at this theater for many years. While it is a bit worn with wear, it still shows as great mix of mostly independent and less mainstream movies which often turn out to be very highly rated for good reasons. They have a nice selection of things to eat in addition to standard movie snacks, including sandwiches and such. I always have good feelings attending movies here.

Great place to go as couples, as a single or with family-small theatre but comfortable and reasonable.

“convenient and comfortable”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

A true neighborhood gem. This multi-theater venue gets plenty of current movies with an appropriately broad genre of selections. It's convenient and has comfortable seating. Parking is usually a challenge, competing with the rest of the shopping center patronage, but you can get there. The price is much better than all nearby megamultiplexs.
