Great place to see independent films and film festivals. Parking is available usually within a few blocks. Some films sell out so advanced film purchase may be necessary for some popular films.

love this jem of a movie theater. They offer films that would only be offered in the city. They also have screenings with the writers and directors of the film. You can hear all about what motivated the writers and directors to make the film
