This place has been around forever, and for good reason. They show a wide range of movies that are on their way out of theaters and often times show the classics. I went by myself once and for $9 got the movie ticket, medium popcorn, and medium soda - if that's wrong, then I don't want to be right. An... More

Having lived within a few miles of this theater many years ago, I went there often and still try to go when in the area and have the time for a movie. Of all the places I can go to a movie, this is my favorite.

This is one of my favorite movie theaters in Minnesota. It has such a fun retro vibe! Great mix of new releases and classics for $3 a film. If THAT's not cheap enough for you, they also have $2 Tuesdays. Concessions are reasonable and the seats are comfy. Grab a glass of wine at the wine bar across the street... More

Discovered this theater on a brief visit to Minneapolis where we caught a matinee for just $2. It's a beautiful theater in the Art Deco style including furnishings in the lobby. Well worth a visit! Very pleased that we came, and there's a nice coffee shop and very nice wine bar and restaurant just across the street.

This was our first visit. A five o'clock show was only $2. The popcorn and pop were inexpensive as well. The staff was very friendly. They appeared to clean the theater between each show. The seats are very comfortable. You can sit with the armrests up or down. Pick a show and go!

Best popcorn in town and it feels like a experience when you go. Absolutely the best prices in town but make sure you have cash. It's cash only!

I live in the same neighborhood as the Riverview theater and love going there to see movies! Even though they usually show movies that have already been in other theaters for a while, they also do fun events. We've gone to the Sing-Along Sound of Music and a midnight showing of The Princess Bride. Concession prices are reasonable, the seats... More
