It seems unfortunate that this used to be a great local cultural resource. I have been in and out of this area for the past few years and this theatre has not shown anything but mainstream movies exactly like the ones in the suburbs during...More

Stumbled upon the Roxy cinema whilst exploring Burlington. We were eager to see a film which had just came out so we decided to buy tickets. The cinema's foyer was what you would expect of an old-school American theatre which was great. Pop-corn was delicious...More

I was visiting my son at UVM for the weekend and we decided to go to the cinema to see a current movie. The tickets were very affordable and the location was easy to walk to right downtown. Highly recommend!

Roxy does a good job of offering offbeat and indie type flicks, about 6 screens and they have a pretty good concession, as theaters go. Comfortable, newish seats, volume is just right and it is such a delight to be able to walk across the...More

Small, clean, centrally located and well-priced, this was a great little theater. Indie-films in a renovated space with nice seating and great concession stand. Liked the movie selection and the staff was friendly. What's not to like about this place?
