REVIEWS OF Philadelphia Film Center IN Pennsylvania

bunny larogue

Great sound system, cool place to watch a movie.

Madeline Nixon

Beautiful movies


Great theater downtown Philadelphia. Saw Quentin"s Jackie Brown movie. A throw back in 35mm movie

Richard Gettlin

Great experience in the black box theater

Jin Yoon

Left halfway through a movie because we saw two mice running through the aisles very close to other viewers. As a result, the experience no longer became comfortable/enjoyable. I spoke with one of the employees on the way out, and he simply responded with a dismissive "We're aware." No attempts to remedy the situation. If the mice weren't an issue, I would give the theater 5 stars, however, until then, I will not be recommending this place to anyone.

Ralph Henderson

One of the best venues in the city for the gathering of like minded individuals and enjoy arts exchange. Great seating along with the value proposition.

Art Clemons

Nicely rebuilt theater.

Cassidy Strode

Great venue. I don't know when it was built or redone bit it's really nice, looks very clean and sharp. It made me feel underdressed. Good acoustics and clean comfortable seating.

Jim Coleman

Nice lavish laid back atmosphere

alina barbash

Just a lovely place! My kids love it there!

Negar Ghasemi

A nice theater, which was called "Prince Theater" before. The air system is really good, which doesn't make it feel unnecessary any cold or warm temprature inside the theater. I had performance twice in there. Piano was tuned and I liked the touch. Bathrooms are very clean. Everything was good and staff are friendly.

James Parker

A great venue.

Alberta Mapp

Always pleasant

Melissa Campbell


Venetta Smith

Eye-opening experience! Looking to make changes in my neighborhood as a result.

Stefan Schreffler

Went to the black box theatre and it was great. Might be a different story if you're trying to see the big, new, blockbuster action movie. Even if you were, the screen is a good size and the sound is fantastic.

matthew hopkins

What a marvelous event this was. I still shimmer in the afterglow!

Howard White

My first time in this theatre. Will definitely go back

Jeremy Proto

Honestly not that bad, I'm used to the Cherry Hill Dolby theater but a friend and I went to see El Camino here and it was decent. Not the craziest movie cinema wise but good nonetheless.

Jessica Marine Sharp

Watched Aladdin and it was amazing! They theatre was so nice and surprisingly clean!

Cody Drissel

We just saw Pulp Fiction on an original print and only had to tell one person in the front row to shut up!

Robert McCormick

Great space to see movies. It used to be the Prince theater, but now is part of the Philadelphia Film Society. Get yourself a membership and support independent theaters in our great city.

Merys Rojas

We go there for the Sunday service :Freedom Church.

Nicholas Banton

Very good tasty food. The portions are average; the pricing is reasonable for a center city restaurant. However, if you are particularly hungry, your dining experience will get expensive.

Ezekiel Preston

Other than the fact that they were showing Avengers: endgame, this theater was awful. The staff was lackluster, did not seem like they wanted to be there. The concessions were ridiculously over priced for the minuscule amount of luke warm popcorn you get, let alone they ran out of butter, (a theater... ran out of butter). Over all if I had the choice to watch a movie here or literally a projector on a wall with a popcorn machine? I'd watch it on the wall. Don't go here.

Thomas Carlson

Clean, quiet and very enjoyable movie going experience. The bathrooms were nice and clean. This is the only movie theater in the area WITHOUT a super sticky floor. I was somewhat amazed as to the lack of adhesion.

Nitin Paighowal

It was a wonderful experience at Prince Theater. It was cute small theater but with very good service. They had a black box theater where they kept chairs and tables for you. It felt like you are sitting at home and watching a movie. Overall it was a good experience and would love to visit it again for next movie.

Daniel O'Connor Ellis

Good theater.

Timaree Schmit

Great location for such an incredibly big theater, audiences are chill, staff is lovely.

Michael Hart

Wonderful theater! The people are friendly, and the Black Box is perfect for a horror movie!

Circular Squarez

It was a nice theater that I would definitely recommend

Kim Castelli

Saw a movie here while visiting some friends, it was a nice theater that I would definitely recommend.

Arjun Singh

Very nice movie theater and nice seating plan

g Bernard Wandel

Cool organization Meets monthly Local films Free or with donation Such a great community art event!


Always a great experience at the Prince Theater. The staff are always so helpful. I also love that they have adequate bathroom facilities instead of just two toilets and you have to wait in line for 15 minutes. No problems like that at the Prince Theater. :)

Edwin Machado

Pretty cool small theater. The Black Box theater is literally chairs like in a waiting room so not as comfy but still good experience

James DiMartino

Great venue for out of the way film.

Nick Cvetkovic

Great place to view films..huge screen

Fred Alluso

This gem of an independent theatre is not too large but it is clean and professionally run. I attended a special presentation in one of the theaters and was impressed by the staff and facilities.

Ryan Cain

It was a different movie expierence but very cool .I will do it again.

Nikolai Tillman

Good except small theater is slightly uncomfortable with the small chairs and table set up. But I do love supporting local business so it's worth it!

Rowana Marie

The seats are pretty comfy and the audio is also pretty amazing

Christina Bradley

Nice, new clean seats, conveniently located near my office... The theater is not responsible for rude noisy patrons. I think they should not sell liquor or allow it in.. Big drunk purposefully stepped on my feet.

Pete Bainbridge

Very fine facility. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

orema smith

Freedom churches here on Sundays.

Jenna Schuster

Professional staff and nice auditorium and sound system. Seats are old fashioned, but comfortable. I always enjoy my experience watching movies here.

Jackie S Yoon

Philadelphia Film Center is smaller than I thought. Its lobby is not large but nicely decorated with plaques and caricature cartoons. Its staffs were kind. Its location is very easy to find on Chesnut Street.

Audrey Troutt

The black box theater was great for watching a movie with a group. There are little cafe tables for your snacks. The sound system is excellent, the room shook with the big bass sounds. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The screen is smaller than a big theater, but I didn't mind.

Philip Frank

This is a review of the black box theater at the Prince. I watched a film in the black box and was impressed. The sound system is awesome. The seats are quite comfortable, with four to a table. The film we attended was not a packed house. I'm not sure what the sight lines would be if it had been. That said, I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye on the movies scheduled in the black box.

Ian Lazarus,CRB,CRS

Really cool venue for movies. Very clean and nice. Saw Rolling Thunder Revue tonight. Awesome.

Andrew Joos

Went to see Mary Poppins here. Best movie theater experience I've had in a long time. I'd definitely look ahead to see what else is on the schedule for the main stage theater.

Debbie Ferrell

It was enjoyable to hear the critics discuss the oscar winners. I thought I was going to a party so I was a bit disappointed but it was still an interesting evening.

Shonda Johnson

Wonderful theater! The Shaft movie Premiere I attended was absolutely amazing!

Kj Lawrence

Acoustics are absolutely the worst - sound goes straight up. Seats are cripplingly bad. Site lines are good.

Evelyn Reyes

Lovely very nice place to visit

Kate Powers

What a cool movie theater experience!!! I had no idea. There’s two movie rooms and you use the elevator to get to them. When you get to your floor, the elevator opens to the movie room. And there are tables with comfy chairs around them. Sort of like a comedy club, minus the noise and grime. I’ve never seen anything like it. Super quiet and intimate experience. Plus you get to sit so close to the screen at eye-level! Amaze.

Michele Spann

I was there for a screening of Behind the Bullet!! The theatre is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable!

michael reed

For one the best cinematic experiences in the city, come here. These folk keep it clean, friendly, and efficient.

Olga Krejci

Awesome movie, we watched Citizen Kane

Juan Cholula

Nice place may be it is not one upgrade theater but it's clean friendly staff good price.

Lily Groot

Lovely place to see films

Stephenie Gibbons Jackson

Me and my boyfriend got here to see Creed 2. When we got here there was no line. The box office lady was nice. We went straightforward and viewed a cute setting of seats to pick from. One thing is.. If you are 5'6 tall and above your knees will be touching the back of someones seat..Also the rows are super tight so just BEWARE of that. Also, they do not serve fountain drinks (cups w/ or w/o ice) only bottled drinks. They do NOT have popcorn either

Jerome Barnes

Awesomely dope I saw screening of the Shaft.

Andrew Pollard

Showcases the newest movies like other area theaters, but has a wonderful, vibrant, inviting type of atmosphere throughout, especially with its Black Box Theater.

Kylthia Roberts

Great theater. Only problem is parking in this area. There is a lot on 16th just past Chestnut in the Liberty building. The theater gives discount coupons if you remember to ask. This brings the cost down to $15. Public transportation is better if you can do it.

Thomas Whitehaus

Amazing place! We visited from it of town just to see Mary Poppins and it was worth the trip.

M Tamimi

Saw Avengers: Endgame here. Such a classy place for a movie theatre! Not many people per room, so less risky of noisy people ruining the experience. Absolutely loved it! Will definitely be seeing a lot more movies here!

Michael O'Malley

Came for PFF Springfest, saw two incredible films, and can't wait til I'm back in Philly so I can catch more!!!

Yvonne Sherrill

Nice people place to see movies. Members only theatre

Jack Butt

Love this theater, it is a historic treasure. We come from NJ to see movies at this venue.

Emanuele Chisari

Old historical cinema in center city. It works well and the popcorn are good

Phillip Santan Santana

Great,the big screen experience is becoming obsolete and I'm a dinosaur when it comes to that outlet.It's gpod to know that The Prince Theater alows for that experience.

Ronald Ford

movie Was Great!

Debbie Mcfaddin

Saw the movie creed 2 enjoyed very much nice atmosphere

Isabella Nicole

Nice big old movie theater, with beautiful old marquee. Seats are not the most comfortable.

Kelsey Hageman

I always used to walk right by this place paying it no mind, but seeing as though it was one of the only theatres playing Midsommar we thought why not. We were instantly greeted politely, all of the staff were super friendly. We went to the second floor to an intimate theatre with tables. The chairs were uncomfortable, but the intimate setting made up for it. So glad we came!!

Kirill Bykanov

A great organization for cinema lovers. A wide variety of events ranging from New film screenings, old classics, interactive events and meetings makes it a perfect social hub for artists. A big stage, room and screen serve a great viewing expirience.

Mikayla Malchione

Really beautiful. Nice seats. Pretty large screen. Free water lol. Kind of expensive drinks and popcorn but that's understandable as they probably make a lot of they're money that way


Best price for the whole family

mary mills

I was with my 3 small granddaughters ages 3, 4 & 6 to see Secret Life of Pets2. They loved it and the space, the chairs and tables were set up very comfortable. They really thought they were big people, with their drinks and snacks.

Robert Blake

Updating my previous review of The Prince Theater, now renamed The Philadelphia Film Center. Valentines Day weekend was also my birthday weekend. As a gift, my girl took me to the film center's special event of presenting all eight Oscar nominated films for 2018, from Friday evening through Sunday evening for $50 per person. One of only a few venues in the entire country that played all eight Oscar nominated films back to back. A wonderful time for true movie buffs it was. And finally they have a pure butter dispenser for their bit too salty popcorn. But don't mind me because I am not the world's biggest salt fan. My girl likes the popcorn as it is now with 100% butter topping available. The venue is always clean, particularly the bathrooms that can be the thing of nightmares at other venues at times. The staff is accommodating and the seats are old school comfortable. Sorry, no lean back seats on tap here. Management should make it a priority attaching cup holders to the seats. All in all a very nice movie going experience. With other upgrades and one of a kind events in the works for this year, the Film Center is on its way to being the watermark standard for movie theaters in the city.

Damien Escobar was excellent! No problems.
