Excellent theatre with a good range of art house films. Very close to bars and restaurants for something to do before and after the film.

Great theater watt movies others do not have

First time here to see Midnight in Paris. The theater was packed with people, but the air was quite stuffy and badly in need of some circulation. Once the movie started, the projection was a letdown as the image was quite dim with a yellowish tint. Did they reduce the brightness of the projection? Seemed like it. It's great to have independent movie theaters nearby, but I wish they made it a bit better. Overall a very mediocre moviegoing experience.

Melissa April

Beautiful theatre, great sound system

Lynne McVey

If you like movies in an old fashioned theater that serves alcohol...this place is for you! I love the historic feel of the building. They show eclectic movies and mainstream, and occasionally show the Russian Ballet live!! What a Newport Gem!

Cool, intimate place to see a show. Its age means legroom might be an issue. Also, wish they'd turn on the fans.

Deberra Cassidy

My favorite theater! Seats are comfortable, the wine is better then some restaurants and munchies are great. My favorite is caramel popcorn. Love the choice of movies.

comfortable but seats were small, Nice vintage theatre, great if you enjoy the classical feel of an old time theatre with good showings and a warm comfortable atmosphere that doesnt have the cheap feel of other movie theatres

Besides the insanity of no air conditioning, really dislike the change of not extending a discount to seniors and trying to coerce patrons to become members. Shame on you!

Awesome old fashioned theater with comfortable seats and an awesome drink menu!! Plenty of on-street parking is located near the theater.

Local theater which shows a wide variety of movies, ranging from indie films to ballet & opera, to classic movies. For the recent showing of Caddyshack, they put a 4-hole mini-golf game on the stage! Also, they have a liquor license. Genius!

Such a cool place. Old fashioned theater. Great.

A small, older theater house with charm. Parking is in back of the building with cobblestones on either side street to get to the entrance. One movie is offered daily, alcohol is available, theater and bathrooms are clean. The seats are the old style, and not stadium seating which can get a bit uncomfortable. All in all a decent theater.

Kathy MacPherson

Great showings, but it's usually cold in there

Barnes Newberry

Wonderful experience at Jane Pickens. Great Bob Dylan show. Theater staff, Linda, Kathy and Mel were terrific!

Martha Parker

Jane Pickens in a great Theatre with first rate movies and amazing special events such as the live feed ballets. THANK YOU for being here!!
