“Great theater for otherwise unavailable movies”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

Very comfortable, large screen, movies you wouldn't expect to find in a small town. Good about sharing their space with other organizations that want to have special showings.

“Another excuse for us to come to Asheville.”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

As if we needed another excuse to come to Asheville besides the food, here sits the Fine Arts Theatre, showing movies I actually want to see that don't dull my senses with over the top special effects and mindless banter. You can grab a beer, popcorn, Coke, candy....and sit back and unwind comfortably in one of the two theatres. Another plus is that the crowd you will encounter here understands theatre etiquette, and are here to enjoy the movie.

“The Best of Asheville”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

Nothing more like Asheville than enjoying a local brew while watching smart film. You won't see Adam Sandler anywhere near here! I like to meet friends in the critics lounge before the show :)

“very good art house movie theater”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

We've been lots of times. They often get movies ahead of the main first-run theaters. It's fairly small; the upstairs screen is where the old balcony used to be. I have never availed myself of it for fear of falling asleep, but they seem to have a good selection of beers. Chances are they have a good movie running, even if you go at random. Lots of restaurants within a block or so.
