“very cute movie theater”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

Love the selections offered at this theater. The screening rooms (there are 2) are small and the seats are old-fashioned. However, there is a quaintness to this place. We also like that it is located right downtown in Kingston. All the other movie theaters are gigantic places near malls.

“Best Movies in town”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

Great little theatre that shows the best movies in town. Many are indy films that get missed at the big screen theatres. I know I always enjoy the movies shown at the Screening Room. One year I managed to see most of the Oscar nominees at the Screening Room. Great place and a little funky.

“Traditional movie theatre”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

The screening room is the only remaining non-mutiplex movie theatre in Kingston. It still has that old fashion way of going to the movies, and it is very well located, in the heart of Downtown Kingston

“Amazing place! ”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 via mobile

Where else these days can you go to see a quality movie with food for under $20? Only here!
Playing all genres of movies, offering all typical theatre refreshments, and even serving coffee and tea in actual mugs are only a few of the things I love about The Screening Room! I will always choose to visit this theatre above any chain theatre and have never been let down yet!

“a great place to see great unknowns in a small intimate theatre”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Its pleasant , staff are polite and talkative and knowledgeable about the days features. the only draw back about the screening room is the hokey seating and snack bar , but you dont go to the screening room for that you go because it strikes you as a comfortable intimate setting , i like it and have returned about 6 times.
