A great theatre

Really powerful selection of films. VERY comfortable seating. Very reasonable prices. Not only the best theater on the Island, but one of the best anywhere.

The MV Film Center is, by far, the best theater on the Vineyard. Stadium seating and state of the art electronics that provide the best possible picture and sound. The theater offers a diverse and interesting variety of films that are a cut above the normal summer fare.

a great newly built theater, every seat with an unobstructed view of the curtain, seats that are comfortable and Richard's vision in bringing art films and first run films to a community that has nothing like it.

The film center has made a major difference on the island. It runs interesting films (and hosts other events), sometimes with appearances by the filmmakers or others connected with them.

We love the range of films avaialble on the Vineyard and mourn the loss of several theatres on the Island. The Film Center offers interesting films and the theatre has comfortable seats with good views of the screen from all parts of the theatre. Interesting snack bar as well and parking has not been a problems

Although most of us travel to the Vineyard to partake in outdoor activities, there definitely is a place for a quality movie house, such as the Film Center in Vineyard Haven. My family took advantage of some terrific movie offerings this past week, and it was especially nice for my father-in-law, who has limited mobility, and wanted to have interesting... More

...has become a community's treasure! Thank You, Richard P, for your blood, sweat, & tears in bringing the Film Center to life! Always great bookings, & fun programming (Guests, Speakers, theme-night co-ops with local restaurants). Much more than just Good Movies. We live here, we love the Film Center, and we'll see you on movie night!
