This is the coolest place in town. First run gems, old cult classics and everything in between. Beer and popcorn and a cool environment. Go.

Great local cinema. Theater decor influenced by a large spectrum of films. A rare, personal haven for a community to have. The average movie goer or film buff should feel right at home :)

Awesome theater with intimate seating and a wide variety of films shown. I love to keep up with their Instagram and other social media to get updates of the schedule. Really appreciate having a cool, local independent theater in the heart of Knoxville.

This is a small 100 seat cinema that plays great vintage films as well as select new releases. We saw "Smokey and the Bandit" tonight. What a fun time. The concession stand is affordably priced. My husband was delighted to find they sell beer and hard cider. You have have to check their calendar for what's going on. My husband is looking forward to $5 kung-fu night. We will definitely be back.

A great throwback to older theatres! The walls of this historical building are lined with old movie posters, and they regularly play old movies in their festivals. They have reasonable prices, and friendly staff. If you ever consider coming …

I showed up to see Godzilla GMK with some friends and there was a dude in a suit dressed as the King Kaiju himself. Homie slapped me five. What an awesome experience. :)

Seats are not the best, but the theater is amazing.

Jaxx Fox

Intimate, unique, and awesome! Plenty of beers and sodas plus the classic popcorn to compliment WHATEVER film is playing. In the same day, there can be multiple films so make sure to check all the showings!

Mrs. Frankenstein

Great intimate movie theatre. We went for the double feature of the Universal Monsters series they are showing this month. Prices are extremely fair you get 2 movies for $15. Seats are a little small but there wasn't a big huge crowd so that was nice! Great posters, great owners! Give it a try!

Howell Evans

A truly amazing space run by truly amazing people.


Went here to see Akira a few months back and it was a wonderful experience. Made me want to come back. It was a joy to visit and see others who were also invested into this timeless classic. The previews they had made before the movie started were funny to watch. I like a place that has a sense of humor like that.

Spencer Siefke

Absolutely amazing!! Central Cinema delivers what other movie theaters just fail to deliver! The people who work there really care for film and are knowledgeable about every genre, no matter the obscurity! They host more than just film …
