First time here, awesome old building. Found parking on street pretty close, pouring rain might have helped tamp down visitors....was there for Banff Film Festival. What a night!

Great acoustics and bookings for films

I have been visiting this Theatre since I began visiting Marin before I moved here in the 1990's. Smith Rafael has offered my family and friends and I so many wonderful film experiences that I couldn't remember all of them. However, I have never had an experience there which I wasn't fond of. Every great Yoga movie has been shown there. And many excellent documentaries over the years have been held over by popular demand. The staff is always friendly. The space is neat and tidy. The seats are pretty comfortable. And the films are spectacular. They keep the very rare and novel films and documentaries going continually so there are always excellent topics to choose from.

Keith Metcalfe

The three theaters are wildly different in size and quality, but all are good. Well worth supporting the theater as well as the types of films they show.

It is one of - if not the best - movie house in the Bay Area. Why? Because of the broad range of movies and documentaries shown, including superb animation. I've been educated viewing political documentaries, nature films (Symphony of the Soil was short of amazing and still relevant today), artsy films I consider 'way out there,' and main stream. Of course, foreign films. I can't say enough good things about this theater. Also, don't miss the beautiful art (deco?) designs in the theater-on the walls of three women and elk or bucks. Very cool.

Steve Ramsey

Marin's arthouse theater. The screens are pretty small and the seats close together but it's still a fun place to catch an indie film without driving to the City.

Jacek Machnowski Sr

Allways a nice experience, great service and interesting movie selection.

Joanne Orion Miller

Laura Bingham

Michelle Myers Beare

Love this theater! They show the best movies and they have beer and wine on the weekends.

D. A. Kell

Comfortable and accessible (elevator), eclectic selection of films/documentaries.

One of the best of top quality Art film theaters and film culture centers (renowned for various film festivals, including the world famous Mill Valley Film Festival - now 40 years old), as well as Educational opportunities for youth in various aspects of film making. First release Feature films; and International, documentary, and quality independent films shown in a beautifully remodeled art deco theatre. Q&A's with filmmakers, actors, musicians, creative celebrities from around the world. Bravo to the Smith Rafael Film Center staff and volunteers!

Great theater to catch a movie. The seats have that old charm, plus they are comfy. I wish more theaters were like this.

What a wonderful place to see a movie... has a old time feel overall .. all smiles here =)~

The Rafael & CFI (California Film Institute) are a priceless gem in the Bay Area! Throughout the year wonderful independent & top feature films emerge from the experienced evaluations of professional staff with what constitute stimulating, thought-provoking film! Every form of taste & preference can be satisfied with the wonderfully creative leadership of CFI, not only at the marvelous Rafael theatre but other fine theatres in the county from the Sequoia in Mill Valley to the Lark in larkspur, but make the Rafael your first stop in your journey of exploration into the world of exciting film from every corner of the globe. As a former film producer, actor, financier I cherish the experiences as will you.

Always good and important films! Often foreign films, docs which appeal to me. Not to mention the actors, directors and producers who often speak or are available on nights when there’s Q and A. Mill Valley Film Festival is in early October each year. I’ve gone for decades! And had film experiences that have enriched me, inspired me and enlightened everyone I know.

The Rafael Theatre on 4th Street in downtown San Rafael is a favorite destination for film enthusiasts and movie goers. Incomparably wonderful in all respects!

Raymond Rifenburg

Wonderful facility and excellent films.

Richard Herrera

Ed Ivey

I was lucky enough to attend the world premiere of a new movie about the great cornetist buddy bolden. The facility is really nice and the staff were extremely professional. The movie was about New Orleans jazz musicians and there was a brass band playing live in the lobby.

Good Theater. They should sell healthier snacks.

This theater usually shows artistic and Indie movies. The seats are not super comfortable compared to other theaters. But the place is clean. Flawed design: the cup holders are too small to fit the large size soda cup they sell.

great joint in downtown for a movie that might be hard to find!

Robert Noguchi

Brought back childhood memories of seeing first-run Disney films. Beautifully renovated and comfortable.

Annie Silverberg

Secret Ingredients was great and so eye opening about 5 families that went 100% organic and literally reversed Autism Spectrum children, diseases....the Writers were there, great Q & A, excellent movie about the positiveness of organics!

Always an event

Claudia Burg

This theater is beautiful. It offers independent films. Return trips will be taken.

Tom Ruppanner

Fabulous

Sam Khandelwal

Small, indie theater that plays small, indie movies like The Party. And yes they accept MoviePass. The concessions are expensive (no more than your chain theaters), run by teens (who are pleasant, but its probably a first job, don't expect movie trivia conversations) and theaters that are intimate (50 seats perhaps). Parking can be a pain, but there are garages and a lot. Go there for a curated selection of movies that you will rarely find in chain cinemas.

Lynnette Frary

I love this theater, the parking situation is horrible, but the theater is fabulous. Retro. Inexpensive. Great older, and indie films

Rebecca McClellan

Fun to have a glass of wine while watching a good film. And a classic building with now-comfy seats.

Ted Dudziak

The theater is very nice with excellent AV and limited seating but big enough for that theater experience. I saw the "The Spy behind the Plate" about baseball player Moe Berg and his contributions to the war effort during WWII. I highly recommend it.

Loren Kertz

They usually screen Academy Award nominated short films there.

Sharon Malone

Rose Bud

I would really like a way to find out which theatre the movie I wish to view is in. If it is in the tiny, ridiculously stuffy #3, upstairs on the right, I will not come to see it! What a horrible theatre experience...I felt like a sardine...two different times, and could not enjoy the movie!!

Veronica Bach

The beauty of the Smith Rafael is it's connection to the community, and it's devotion to sometimes obscure documentaries that you can't see anywhere else. I also appreciate their flexibility when one of these indies sells out, the Rafael will schedule a viewing of it again for those who missed it. I don't need a reclining seat, I just want to see the film. I think pretty much everyone loves the Rafael!

Jose Orellana

This review is not about the theater. I give SR cinema the highest praise, hence 5 stars. I actually want to submit a review about a current movie: Happy End. I give the movie 1 star. In short, it’s a terrible film. I just can’t see any redeeming value in it. I know it’s not supposed to be ‘ Hollywood’. But over all, it is a ware of time. No amount of artsy discourse will remedy the films pervasive flaws. I can’t see any redeeming quality or message, or even novel film art craft. It simply fails at each level and device in movie making. The critics offer some immense stretches of the films merits. I can’t agree on any point. To sum it up, while movie making is not an easy endeavor, and while , equally important, many non standard presentations can be done with beautiful effect, the subject should be left to qualified people. I came away with the notion that I had witnessed total failure in the craft. review for a current movie: Happy End

Great theater. Home to the Mill Valley Film Festival. Great programming. First run treats not found anywhere else, and old classics. Lots of guests over the past years. Everyone from Jonathon Winters to Sir Ian McKellan to Helen Mirren has been on stage for interviews. Part of the California Film Institute.
