If you're tired of the big movieplexes and yearn for thoughtful movies, The Grand Cinema is the place to go. You can always count on The Grand to feature the great independent films that never seem to make it to the big theaters. Not enough blood and guts I guess! This theater also has a good snack bar and their prices are reasonable in comparison. Two thumbs up!

Small, funky, great films, relatively inexpensive (although I wish they'd roll back their coca cola prices...that's the only thing that makes me think it's "just another movie theatre rip off" (but not as bad as most, that's for sure). Really great selection of films on almost any day.

I love to go to this movie theater because it shows great movies (indie type) that you usually don't find at the larger theaters. Each theater room is small and intimate. The staff is also very polite and friendly.

Love this movie theatre option, especially with the newish renovations. Definitely better quality films than mainstream theatres offer and a different (usually quieter) clientele. Loved the last, post-movie discussion we joined. The facilitator was well chosen and managed to abbreviate the chat in just the right way, considering the number of participants.
