This small, 1 screen theater shows a great variety of first run, little known and classic films. Best place in town to enjoy lower Dauphin St. Dinner/drinks with a movie.

I love this independent theatre. Small and intimate. The owner is great. Chairs are comfy and if you arrive early, you might get a recliner!

Walking through Dauphine Street in Mobile we stumbled across a small cinema that looked interesting enough to look inside. I'm glad we did; the proprietor runs the whole thing, he advised us to reserve recliners, pop out and come back for the 6 o'clock showing...More
