“Cool neighborhood icon”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This older theatre is friendly and has the best movies showing. A plus for those of us who like to protect our eardrums is that they do not have the sound system turned up to the highest ! They even have dessert available in the lobby!

“awesome place to see a movie!”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

Love, love, love this theater! The flicks are well-chosen, the atmosphere is vintage, the refreshments are unique and well-priced. Even the cost of your ticket is low. You gotta go if you haven't been already!

“Love it”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

Olde timey theater in the heart of Ghent. One big screen. Great movies, documentaries, and often there are events with discussion afterwords. Nice snack bar with the usual plus juices, baklava, baked goods. Friendly. A neighborhood treasure. Walking distance from many restaurants on Colley Ave.

“NARO”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

A fantastic local theater! It's on Colley in Ghent, right next to some great restaurants and bars. I go to the movies all the time, and the Naro is one of the few theaters I've ever been to that gets me as excited as I was going to the movies as a little kid.

“The Best”
Reviewed 26 January 2013

I love seeing films at the Naro. Naro audiences value movies and understand how to behave in a movie theater. No one talks, or has their cell phone on, or texts during the movie. If it is a particularly good film, they applaud. I also love their popcorn. It tastes so much better than popcorn you buy at chain theaters. I also like how you can get a cup of coffee or baked goods from the concession stand. It's fun to sit in the balcony, but there is not a bad seat in the house. We are so fortunate to have this treasure in Norfolk!
