A delightful single-screen theater, showing the best of modern and classic films, with an emphasis on art house films that typically don't screen at megaplexes. Theater and balcony seating. Great popcorn, made with organic non-GMO kernels and a buttery topping that may not be a...More

I have been a fan of the Naro for years. They bring in the documentaries that often go to much larger cities often with speakers. They have opened my eyes to a different way at looking at cinema. Also, how many theatres still have a...More

the Naro is located on Colley Ave in the safe and well-lit neighborhood of Ghent, with restaurants and shoppes. We purchase a booklet of tickets with 10 tickets for $68.00. That means the two of us can go to the theater for $13.60. If you...More

In my opinion, the sound system needs improvement. I am not talking about adding a high definition surround sound system. What this theater needs is some speakers in the balcony and some addition speakers in the back of the first floor. I found a great...More

Love this small, art deco theater. Named after Nathan and Rose, the owner's parents. Great to have an honest, independent, small family theater left in town. I go there for new releases as well as classics and of course, Rocky Horror!

Great local art house type theater. Vintage decor and atmosphere with a flair for the artistic and out of the norm films. Don't expect Widescreen super sound but good quality entertainment. Seating is vintage as well so make sure the film's not too long
