Comfortable environment. Friendly staff that care whether you like the film or not. Their Arthouse film selection is the best in the area. The big award contenders as well as gems you didn't know you wanted to see but are glad you did. Always fun...More

We were fortunate to watch a film in the upstairs showroom, which is more of comfortable, cozy sitting room with a great screen and sound system, then a typical theater. It was an incredible, intimate experience that we can't wait to return for.

This place is a hidden gem. The folks who run the Showroom are movie lovers who offer the comfort of a living room setting to watch their carefully selected independent films. You just don't have the option of moving around chairs and ottomans in MEGAPLEX-24...More

This place is wonderful, 3 (?) small theater rooms, one with living room lounge chairs; even the snacks are special. Right next door for after the movie is one of the 10 best ice cream shops in NJ.

First time visiting this theater. It's tiny with only 5 rows of seats about 15 across. Very clean and comfortable. The snacks are geared toward vegans but there are other things to munch on also. Priced the same as other theaters. But remember the meters....More
