“Great Place to See a Movie!”
Review of Fine Arts Theater

Fine Arts Theater
Ranked #5 of 32 Fun & Games in Asheville
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 December 2013

This small theatre plays fantastic movies you can't see at the big mega-plexes - plus it is comfortable and they serve beer. It is also right downtown, so dinner and movie is great - just park in a garage and you can easily walk to some of Asheville's best restaurants (Limones, Wicked Weed and Curate are all a block or so away)

This is a great gem in downtown Asheville where movie-goers can grab a beer with their popcorn and enjoy a not-so-mainstream flick. If you're going to see a movie whilst in Asheville, this theater offers a very unique experience!

I come here on many visits to Asheville. I always appreciate the chance to see films that are out of the mainstream. Matinees are priced well and upstairs is my favorite. There is plenty of leg room and no one sitting in front of you is ever a bother.

We attended two different movies this week while we visited Asheville. Great theatre, the lower theatre is especially nice. All indie films. Outstanding popcorn.

Day-trippers note: they do not sell tickets until 1/2 hour before show time, so don't bother stopping here before dinner...
They bring a great mix of interesting films to Asheville, and for that I'm extremely grateful. However, apparently artists aren't the only ones who have to suffer for art...don't expect comfortable chairs or enough leg room here. And whatever you do, don't buy the popcorn. It's stale, over-salted, and flavorless. I asked once for butter, and got " the look"and a lecture on why they don't serve it. All that said, I still come here at least twice a month, because no where else in town shows the indie and foreign films that the Fine Arts does.
