Carousel tends to show more indie movies than all of the other theaters in Greensboro put together, and they even have a bar that serves alcoholic beverages. My only complaint is that the seats are very low and could be replaced, but other than that, this is one of my favorite movie theaters in Greensboro.

While this multiplex offers a great many shows and genres you can also get an alcoholic beverage or snack from the bistro before going in to your movie. The theater could be a bit cleaner or updated inside.

Not only do they show films much better than the over-hyped crap Hollywood pushes out, there are some intimate theaters (one is a room like an in-home theater) and sometimes beer and desserts are available to take in!

We have been frequenting this theater for about the 20 years since it was first built. Before that, the same family owned and operated the Janus Theater nearby, which was closed when the Carousel was built. This theater, by far, does the best job of presenting the high quality, "non-blockbuster, non-shoot 'em up" films; without it, the piedmont area would be a virtual wasteland for serious films. They are willing to take a chance. We have seen many Sundance-type films, and foreign films, here which would never have been shown in the area otherwise. They have a bar and you can take a beer or glass of wine into the theater, which is a nice touch. The theaters are very comfortable; we particularly like the smaller screening rooms. The management does many civic minded things, such as hiring the handicapped and doing free food and admissions for big-screening of the Oscars each year. It is family run and not a conglomerate.
