“Reminded me of our old theatres in UK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Decor so similar to the Victorian theatres in the Uk that it is like a time travel and teleport to Malvern Theatre in Uk.
Trust me, sit there and be entertained while be surrounded by history and its memories.

“Great old movie theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

We were delighted to find this small movie theater in downtown Newport during our stay and made a point to see a move there ("The Grand Budapest Hotel"). The theater dates from 1919, and the building was originally a church built in 1834. As you can read on their website, it is to some extent in the process of being restored to its former glory, but that doesn't take away from the experience of seeing a movie there. The concession stand has a great selected of snacks, treats, and drinks (including beer and wine). It's definitely worth a stop if you are in Newport.

“Jane Pickens Theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

This theater is so much more than going to the movies. Attractive entrance with a welcoming feel and what an assortment of food and drink! Not like going to the Showcase Cinema. Spacious theater, yet small enough to be comfortable, even a balcony! Great selections of films.If you're in Newport, make this a stop. If not, it's worth the trip over, very cool.
