Heather MacKay


The best, all around place to see a movie. Superb selections.

Bozenna Redett

Thank you Norwalk for having and keeping this place going.

Tom Burkert

They need a better website. Do they take credit cards? What are their matinee prices? What time does the Box Office open? How do you talk to a person when you have questions NOT covered on their recording?

Betty Cosgrove

I love the movie selection at the Garden (a local independent and arthouse distributor). Parking can be challenging with small lot and ongoing construction. Seats are older, cash only, but it's a family run business so I support it whole-heartedly.

Barbara March

Desmond FitzGerald

Cozy, friendly, comfortable seats, and a good Greek restaurant next door.

Alexis Goncalves

Ellen P

Great local spot for indie, arts and also mainstream movies - and friendly, personal service, unique accessible seating (self-serve, seat reservations not required, and that's a GOOD thing) that guarantees good screen viewing; and great popcorn, snacks/beverages.

Christopher Baring

This is an art cinema and should be preserved. Many of these movie houses are becoming extinct. Shame!!!

Mike Verrico

great movie in Roma. is there no wifi?

I loved this theatre back in the 90's. It lost it's luster when with a single rude gesture, the manager, who also took tickets acted as if i had never been in there before. I guess i have sucker written all over my face. Today, when i walk in 20 minutes to show time, he asks me, what can i do for you? as if i'm here for a haircut. His tattooed assistant makes another comment, saying "breaks over" as if i ruined their break by walking in to see a movie. It gets 1 star for nostalgia, and an extra star because it shows woody allen movies.

The best movies and the most amazing popcorn (with real melted butter if you want it) ... But don't forget cash, they don't take credit cards.

Janet Karabin

Always shows the best films. Nice clientele too!

Andrea Wilson

Do yourself a solid and go to the Garden cinemas its a step back when going to the movies was a real date night. Much more intimate than being bearded into so many doors.

Steve White

The local art and independent movie theater -- no town should be without one. This place is a little run down and needs repair (2016), but there is no where else to see these movies locally, so I am grateful!

Michael Tier

Lisa Feld

Peter Powell

Good spot for pictures that appeal to sophisticated audiences

John Utah

Anthony Niznik

tucker clark

Best films and welcoming staff going

Cathy Castoldi

Nice theater with movies thst are of quality that you don't find another theaters. It's a disgrace to this city thst it's been sold yo be turned to a parking lot. Turning Norwalk into a cement city withouf the charm it has always had.

Richard Deming

Terrific place to see films. It's a place where people really love movies and it's one of the few places in the state where you can see surprising fare. No superheroes in sight!

John Amato

Great Independent movie theater that shows documentaries, Independent and small release films. Friendly staff Reasonable prices on tickets and concessions, fresh popcorn and baked goods along with typical movie candy. This is not your big box ultra HD lounge chair theater but if you want to see great movies at a good price without people talking or using cell phones this is the place to go. Always support independent movie theaters.

Scott E. Baylow

Great Theater!

Peter Soares

is this cinema still in service?

mack ebron

Subha Clarke

Steve Derby

Lisa Wilson Grant

Always enjoy the movies here, wish seats were a bit more comfortable.

Elayne Mordoff

I love this movie theatre. They play the kind of movies that you don't usually see in the mainstream cinemas; in other words, all the award winners. This is where you come to see the Oscar nominees. Also, they pay for their patrons' parking, but the parking lot owners don't let you know that ahead of time.

Maria Anna Panousaki

Wonderful movies you won't see anywhere else. We love this movie theater.

Elayne Dener

Matt Murray

Nice having non main stream movies to see here.

They take no credit cards or gift cards, only cash.

Non main stream movies in small theatres.

Like the garden cinemas


Pros: They show independent films and other "art house" films -- great for our community. Cons: The facility is in dire need of rehabilitation. You must bring an extra sweater/wrap to put OVER your coat in the cold weather. The heating system is either inadequate or not being used to keep customers comfortable. The only accept cash - a real inconvenience. Due to nearby construction (2016), there is little available parking outside of their small private lot.

Peter Bradeen

Great movies and popcorn.

Mike Burns

A throwback to times gone by.

This is a very nice movie theater that shows interesting and good independent movies. My only complaint is that during one showing I was in, I heard the movie from the theater room next to mine. It was only for about 30 seconds when the movie I was watching had a very quiet part, so it really didn't take me out of the movie too much; it's just not preferable. This has only happened once since I've been there. You have to check this theater out!

Todd Ehrlich

Our theatre was very cold, but if they ran the heater it was very loud. On the plus side, nice, big old school seats. Also, be prepaid, they don't take credit cards.

John Verel

Janet Luongo

Love the films!

Stephane Collot

Jeff Zuckerman

The Garden is great--the only good movies in the area. Very comfortable seats and good concessions. Parking can be tough, so allow for extra time on weekend evenings. A big plus is that the upstairs theaters are great if you can sit close. The one major drawback is that upstairs ventillation is not always great and it can get stuffy. Otherwise, five stars.

Meghan Chvirko

Frederic Chiu

Irene Judge

Great little theater, movies that are not big time but are little gems.

Kathy Gallagher

My favorite theater! You’ll see things that don’t run in the big places, independent and European films.
