This place is unbelievable. There are 3 different movie theaters. One has maybe 12 seats and you get an ottoman. The other 2 have maybe 20- 50 seats. They show amazing independent films and they sell local goods from nearby vendors. This is such an...More

The Showroom is a relatively new multiscreen cinema. This is no giant screen city center horror. Screens and theatres are comparatively small but with great seating and good sound. The staff are friendly and helpful, and free lobby posters of past screenings are often available...More

I’ve never been here before and was pleasantly surprised. Comfy seats. Very friendly staff. Parking is difficult but not impossible. I would go again.

Three small theaters, seating about 24 each, offers an intimate setting to watch small independent movies. Dinner and movie offers for local eateries are also available.
