We were looking for something to do in the evening in Santa Fe and found this little place. It was great--we watched an indie film we wouldn't have seen otherwise, and the theater was comfortable and clean.

The Screen is the movie theatre on the campus of the Santa Fe University of Art and Design. It is a very comfortable, almost retro, space. The screen is classically wide, not the little screen that is in some of the multiplexes, and the seats...More

If you are looking for a smaller more intimate indie theater and aren't into the huge sound systems that will make your seat vibrate, this place is for you. Seating is good and staff is friendly. It's on campus but the way is clearly marked...More

We go to indie cinemas everywhere we travel. We find The Screen compares well to others in similar sized US cities. There is always something to see that is entertaining or thought provoking. Light refreshments. Go early for a good seat.

Lovely big screen and stadium seating as well as art, alternative and documentary films. Saw a documentary about Janice Joplin last week and it was marvelous. The theatre is housed at the College of Art and Design.

This little theater on the campus of the College of Art and Design shows interesting films you probably won't see elsewhere in the city. Plenty of parking, easy access, friendly staff. Not a huge selection, but mostly very thought provoking films.
