“A favorite”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Cable Car is a special place. Cuddle up with your s.o. or have your own single seat. Fabulous foreign and art films. Bottomless popcorn! Love it!

“Support this Art House Film place and cafe!”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

The Cable Car is working hard to bring extreme indie fare and documentaries to RI. They also host a bunch of great local film festivals. The cafe has been upgraded since the past owners and is a great spot to just meet a friend for a beer or coffee even if you are not seeing a film. They have bargain tickets on Mondays and Tuesdays. This place needs community support and patronage to stay in biz.

“good cinema”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Like The Avon, The Cable Car gets great movies and it is a venue where you can relax to enjoy them. No rumbles and screams through the wall from the movie next door, because there is no movie next door. One film,one screen, one big room. Just like DeMille wanted it to be.

“Low key with great flicks...”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

Love this low key cinema house. Always has great, off the beaten track, films (this is not the Showcase Cinema.) Big couches and comfy overstuffed chairs make it a great place to snuggle in and watch a good flick.

“Cool little theater”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

What a great theater! Leather couches, a cool little waiting area, and beer and wine that you can bring with you into your movie make this a fun movie experience.
