“Ok, but nothing special. Overpriced.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

I have been many times since I live in San Juan. If you are going, I recommend the one located in Popular Center, Hato Rey (in the heart of the financial district of San Juan), since it is newer and located in a very busy business district. Other than that, it's really just a normal cinema, except that films are more fancy, historic, etc. It is overpriced, really. If you go to the Hato Rey one, you can later eat at the overpriced Ruth Chris Stakehouse on the top floor of Popular Center.

“It's fine not only for the movies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

There is nothing to dislike. I live at walking distance to the theater. It has been remodel and you may have lunch, a brunch and a very good wine before enjoying a quality art film. Prking available and very good restaurant nearby, such a Lima (Peruvian cuisine) and many others. Go and visit Fine Arts
Cinema, it wont dissappoint you.

“BEST cinema in Puerto Rico”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

It's definitely the best cinema in Puerto Rico. It has a tremendous food collection, wide comfortable chairs and excellent service that brings the food straight to your seats. It's also the only venue where you can watch actual good movies, as the rest of the island's theaters are flooded with spanish dubbed versions of all recent 3D and animated films. I wish Fine Arts' selection was even more up to date with recent limited releases, but I guess that would be asking too much.

“Very good choices of movies, but bring a sweater!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

The cinema always offers a great selection of films. The cafe' inside has also a good variety of food. Just bring a good sweater, because the air conditioning will make you freeze!
