This is an awesome independent cinema. The movies that are presented here are wonderful. The theater is very comfortable and the projection and sound outstanding. One could not ask for better!

Got "hooked" on The Screen during a film noir marathon, and have enjoyed the wonderful films ever since. This is a definite "hidden gem".

The Screen shows films you may never be able to see elsewhere. They also show LaScala operas and ballets from around the world. A real treasure.
