“My link to the outside world”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

I love, love, love the Nick! Intimate and old-fashioned (there's only ONE movie playing at a time--which means less congestion and no noise or thumping of the surround-sound from another movie), the Nick brings movies to Columbia that other theaters won't. Small-budget, art films that feature Sundance, foreign, and themed festivals are the mainstay of their program. My only wish is that some films would remain longer.

“wish it were larger”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

The downside to this is the small theatre and that you can't purchase tickets online. The upside is the variety of movies and you can drink beer in the theatre.

“A Fun Place For A Date Night”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

My wife and I have frequented the Nickelodeon over the years. We recently had a chance to catch an Independent Film at their new location on Main Street. We were very impressed with the beautiful new building. Definitely an improvement over their old location.

“Shows movies I can't see otherwise in Columbia SC”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Last night I went to the Nickelodeon to see Twelve Years a Slave. There are occasions when the Nickelodeon is the only place in town to see certain movies. New location and new auditorium and new seats. A good experience.

“Outstanding films projected in a classic manner”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

Some wonderful classics projected on one screen! There is pop corn and there are beverages. Not too many people and some comfortable chairs. Classics like Casablanca or Chinatown as well as recent films like the Lady with the Dragon Tatoo. Fun!
