Were we go to see the "indies"

The best atmospheric theater to see independent movies old and new. We live about an hour away but go often and frequently meet friends for movie and meal at the Tower Restaurant.

We watch a movie at this venue every couple of months or so. It shows foreign films (Grand Budapest Hotel), or independent films that are interesting but may not have a wide audience. A visit to the Tower Theater will transport you to 1938 when it was originally built. In the 1980's the single screen was replaced by three different... More

This theater has such a old world charm to it. Went here for a play and it was very entertaining. Really enjoyed the friendly staff and the great actors. Can't wait to visit to see another play again.

I saw "When Harry Met Sally" here the night before my Masters exam in 1989. The Art Deco outside and the hippy dippy style of the staff and inside just makes going to the movies a little more special. A real Sacramento treasure.

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the fall comedy series they had. I forgot the name of the group but it was something like the 4 incredibly handsome comedians or similar. I love comedy and this was a lot of fun.

Badly in need of TLC. Bad viewing, bad sound, and no one seems to care. We want to support independent businesses, but we need some value for our dollar.

I am not sure if the Tower Theater or the Crest Theater are my favorite in Sacramento but both have a great atmosphere. The big screen is much better than the two smaller screens so beware. But, a tub of popcorn, a Sprite, and two hours later I feel like I have been to a mental spa!
