“NARO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

A fantastic local theater! It's on Colley in Ghent, right next to some great restaurants and bars. I go to the movies all the time, and the Naro is one of the few theaters I've ever been to that gets me as excited as I was going to the movies as a little kid.

“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

I love seeing films at the Naro. Naro audiences value movies and understand how to behave in a movie theater. No one talks, or has their cell phone on, or texts during the movie. If it is a particularly good film, they applaud. I also love their popcorn. It tastes so much better than popcorn you buy at chain theaters. I also like how you can get a cup of coffee or baked goods from the concession stand. It's fun to sit in the balcony, but there is not a bad seat in the house. We are so fortunate to have this treasure in Norfolk!

“The best in cinema, locally-owned, delicious popcorn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Really, this is where you go to see the best in film. The balcony is cozy, the seats everywhere cushy, and the popcorn is fantastic. Also available are brownies and baked goods and all sorts of fun stuff.

“Resembles A College Town Theatre With Uniquely Norfolk Feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

While my wife goes here more often than any other theatre, I go just occasionally but enjoy each time. Its in the heart of Ghent, Norfolk's neighborhood that feels like the best of a college scene with cafe dining, bars, and this establishment as its center. I've notice that there are far more grey heads here at least if its not a cult film. The staff here are terrific. The viewing collaborative with respectful participation. There are opportunities for a book of tickets to save money. But this is an important Norfolk cultural icon and should be supported. They bring to town some films that would probably not be seen here otherwise. This is a good institution to support.

“Great location and small enough to really see the stage.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

This old theater in the heart of the Ghent section of Norfolk, has been turned into a venue for band performances. It is close to MacArthur Mall and many restaurants. It is small enough that you can really see the performers and mingle with friends.
