The Screening Room runs wonderful films, serves up popcorn with amazing toppings in a small, intimate space for reasonable prices. It's the ONLY theatre that I ever visit now!

Love this theatre for the variety of movies they bring in, prices, small theatre size and the friendly family-type atmosphere. Very low-key and personable service. Nice option to the over-stimulating mega theatres of today, and again, being able to see foreign flicks and documentaries is great!

This is a gem and now the only movie theater in downtown Kingston. They have renovated the theaters by replacing the seats and flooring. Always great things going on here, the owners clearly love the biz! HIghly recommended!

The Screening Room won't win any prizes for quality of seating or cleanliness, but it offers a range of films that is unmatched by the big cinema chains. This is THE place to catch art films, movies that don't make general release and foreign films. I highly recommend it. Amongst other factors, it's now the only movie theatre even remotely close to Kingston's downtown.

For those who feel overwhelmed by gigantic screens, 3-D, and bombastic sound systems, this theatre is perfect in both size and ambience. Seats are comfy. The bill is fabulous, consisting of a mix of classics, indie films, mainstream films, and the occasional themed series, such as dancing, cult favorites, and "worst movies." Friendly staff, reasonably priced concession popcorn, candy, drinks.Admission $9, reduced for members of the SR film society.
