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

The Naro is a small but comfortable theatre. Old but classic and in good condition. Staff is very nice and helpful. It's the only theatre in the area that shows foreign and independent films. Movies with substance. Highly recommend.

Have seen many interesting films here. Some went mainstream, some just good to have seen though they did not become "big". Hope they never close

Naro is one of those retro-style theaters, shows movies you might not find on the big-screen; the crowd is definitely different, "high end" if you like; the movies brook intellectual conversations (I went here to watch a movie as part of a class once); you...More

We have gone to Naro several times and enjoy the classic styled theater. Ticket prices are lower than at the big chains, and their featured movies are well chosen. Come to the Naro if you like a theater with a balcony. Great fun for the...More
