Sure it's not a high-tech theater, or fancy, or brand new, or large. But it's a cozy theater that shows many 'artsy' or independent films (as well as mainstream ones), at relatively cheap prices.

The place has a "hole in the wall" type of atmosphere and is rarely crowded with a great parking lot area available. It is usually pretty easy to get tickets or buy discount tickets through Dealflicks. The concessions are fairly priced. I went with my older teen to watch "Suicide Squad". Now the cons: no stadium seating and the seats... More

Great movie selection. New seats! Best popcorn, And ticket and concession prices are reasonable. Save your dollars and support an independent theatre. Plenty of free parking. Love this place. Be sure to pick up a Cinema arts card and earn free movie tickets and popcorn.

Always interesting films - new comfortable seating - a treat night out! The venue is small but clean, friendly, and comfortable. Parking is ample and snacks available.

Great place to see top films. And, every film seems better in the comfy new seats ! The theater is easy to access from main roadways; there's plenty of free parking and lots of places to dine right in the shopping center.

Glad to have the Cinema Arts Theater so close to home. With a huge parking lot near the theater, arriving close to show-time is not a problem. The theater sometimes carries films that are not so widely shown in the area. I wish they did show more independent, and foreign films. The ticket booth at the Cinema Arts is rarely... More

Seats are better than big theaters. A unique experience compared to big box theaters and of course the prices are much less. Also close!

Located on Main Street of city Fairfax, Cinema Arts features the most popular and latest movies. I usually visit Cinema Arts Theatres on weekends and every time experience a good picture with fine audio quality. The reason of giving four stars to them is their old screens. I am hoping that they will upgrade the screens for better picture quality.... More
