We love going to Burns Court for a movie. It's charming and small. The only drawback is parking can be a problem to go early to hunt. We are happy to support The Sarasota Film Society. It is a great value; can't beat the price...More

Only place in town for the less commercial movies to be seen. Good selection of art movies. Negative: very small rooms, sometimes you can hear the movie playing in the next room. But it needs to be supported and I recommend it.

this little independent theater (3 screens?) offers artsy and foreign films not found in larger, main-stream theaters. delightful setting on the cutest side-street in sarasota, adjacent to "fish camp" restaurant, dwarfed by huge rainforest tree.

It is important to get tickets early as the best shows draw a large cinema going audience. The theaters are small but seating is comfortable. Their selection of movies is the best. Nearby restaurants are almost all good. The seafood one right next door does...More

There is no parking for the theatre. Be prepared for a long walk unless you get lucky.
