The Fargo Theater is a beautiful Art Deco theater which shows movies that you probably couldn't catch anywhere else. Plus in March, they are the home for the Fargo Film Festival, which shows movies of all kinds from all over the US. We love seeing movies (and other entertainment such as concerts) here.

The popcorn is hot and fresh. When you walk into the Fargo Theater you feel like you are walking back in time and it's wonderful. I would... More

This is a lovely example of Art Deco architecture, built in 1937 and restored in the 1990s. We attended a concert with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt and the acoustics were fantastic, even in the balcony. The place is SMALL, so milling around before a performance or during an intermission is difficult. There is lots of good parking in the... More

My friends and I just went to the Movie "Lion" there last week and it was a wonderful place. Organization and Friendliness was outstanding and fun to visit a historical site. We enjoyed it very much.
