“Great movie selections”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Got "hooked" on The Screen during a film noir marathon, and have enjoyed the wonderful films ever since. This is a definite "hidden gem".

“great venue for independent film”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

this facility located on the campus of an art college, shows foreign and independent films. It can be a little hard to find on first visit so go early. They usually have a weekly line upon 3-4 features. The lobby has a small concession stand, but no fresh made popcorn.

The films I have been to so far (maybe 4) have been almost like private screenings, with small crowds, no waiting, low noise levels, etc. I love this! They show consistently interesting films covering a wide range of genres and subjects.

If you like indie film, this is for you.

“Tops in Northern New Mexico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

FIVE STARS to the Screen! Absolutely the best cinema in Northern New Mexico. Great sound, comfy seats, and excellent projection...not to mention the on spot programming for anyone looking for the latest indie or foreign films. Staffed by some of the nicest, film-savvy people around. A big step up from your run-of-the-mill refreshments, too. Why spend time at a chain cinema when one can have a superior viewing experience (plus plenty of parking) at The Screen? Tip: the multiple viewing punch cards are a great way to save money. Sign up for their emails to get the coming week's showtimes.
