Athena Cinema is a great little three screen theater that focuses on independent and art house movies. There staff is always friendly and the snack and ticket prices are affordable.

A very clean, and amazing theater to take grandkids! Alittle expensive for treats when you have 5, but well worth the money to see the shows they want to see.

Went for a Sunday matinee which turned out to be a private showing for a quirky indie film. Comfortable and clean.

Sam Elliott in the Hero movie made my day. The movie was great and the Cinema was also great, clean and comfortable.

I love coming here to watch indie films or old films on the big screen! There were many that I didn't catch in theaters (Big Lebowski, Pulp Fiction) that I can see at the Athena. Small theater, but big on taste1
