“Best movies in town-fresh popcorn”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

The Fine Arts is an Asheville institution downtown on Biltmore Avenue next door to the Blue Spiral Art Gallery. This is a small movie house with up and downstairs rooms so they can show two movies at once and they usually have the best films in town. They actually have good snacks as well and unlike absolutely every other theater in town, the popcorn is fresh. They even have decent wine.

“Fab”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

This is one of best theaters ever. Play first rate movies of the highest quality. Excellent popcorn and good beverage selection. This is a wonderful way to see a film with mature adults.

“A real art theater in Asheville”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

The movie feels so much like the movies of yester year. No multiplex, 2 fine little auditoriums, great popcorn and you can get a beer to go with it, if you want.

“Fun movie experience”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Old, intimate little theatre which plays excellent, artsy movies. Always a treat. Explore downtown Asheville after the movie.

“Great movies. Tight seating”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

I love the fine arts as they bring some excellent films you won't see elsewhere. My only complaint is the seats are right on top of one another so there's no room in the seats if you have longer legs. Plus if someone tries to pass you in the row to get to some seats you really need to get up and out of the row or they will step on your feet.
