“Spokane's only art house cinema”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

This hip little twin-screen cinema is nearly the only place in town to see uncommon movies. Theaters are small but very clean and comfortable, with great refreshments available. Sound is good, so it feels like a larger theater.

Out-of-towners may find it hard to locate, however, as it's tucked behind restaurants and shops, up a few steps in the back of the Saranac Building. It's worth the search.

“Old school Theatre”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

It was a pleasure to see a movie at this "old school" theatre. Brought back memories, I used to work at this theatre when it was located downtown Spokane, Wall street back in the 1980's. I serviced many McDonald Matinees and mid-niters. I even did a commercial! It was nice to share this history with my son.
