My friend was showing me around town where he grew up and brought me here to check out this great theatre! Very small and quite. It's like stepping back in time. It's a beautiful place with very friendly staff.

We visited here yesterday and it's probably been 20 years since I've been here. My last time here, there were three screens and the place seemed slightly "seedy". Things have improved considerably and the number of screens has doubled. We had snacked before getting to...More

The Esquire is in the center of Clifton, down the hill from UC. The have a variety of movies, typically not the big blockbusters. Ticket prices and refreshments are reasonably priced, and their popcorn is delicious.

The Esquire theatre is a local indie film theatre. Most films only stay about 2 weeks. Popcorn (which is best in the city of theatres) and COKE products + beer/wine, usual candy, plus sweets from local bakeries. Always a great experience.

I love movies, all kinds of them. Big blockbusters, little independent films, and international - here is where you get to see the great movies that don't get to the suburban chain theaters. I also love the Clifton neighborhood with so many great restaurants. Make...More

I attended a sold out theater on an unusually warm Sunday afternoon. All 3 shows for that day were sold out so get your tickets early. I'm glad it wasn't cold outside as the line went down the sidewalk. Before the movie is started, 6...More
