The Screen is the movie theatre on the campus of the Santa Fe University of Art and Design. It is a very comfortable, almost retro, space. The screen is classically wide, not the little screen that is in some of the multiplexes, and the seats are comfortable. Just a nice simple cinema with good indie films and documentaries. We like it.
It is not the easiest place to find the first time - just another campus building.

Sometimes it's hard to find theaters that will play the non-blockbuster films. The Screen specializes in this and it's a relief to be able to try something different.

The theater is quite large and when I went, there were few people so it felt like I had the theater all to myself. Unfortunately a group of older ladies sat behind me and talked to the screen and each other throughout the entire film. However, I don't blame the theater for this.

The reception area is quaint and the ladies behind the counter were very friendly and helpful.

Finding it was challenging because it's located on the campus of the Santa Fe University of Art and Design. Just follow the small signs and you'll eventually make it.

Overall it was a good experience and I look forward to trying it again, hopefully without the rude patrons.

If you are looking for a smaller more intimate indie theater and aren't into the huge sound systems that will make your seat vibrate, this place is for you. Seating is good and staff is friendly. It's on campus but the way is clearly marked with signs. Plenty of parking. And with dinner in Santa Fe, a great way to spend an afternoon/evening. And the other good thing--you can get a Groupon so the tickets are very inexpensive.

We go to indie cinemas everywhere we travel. We find The Screen compares well to others in similar sized US cities. There is always something to see that is entertaining or thought provoking. Light refreshments. Go early for a good seat.

Lovely big screen and stadium seating as well as art, alternative and documentary films. Saw a documentary about Janice Joplin last week and it was marvelous. The theatre is housed at the College of Art and Design.
