The long-darkened 1930s Waverly was once again illuminated in 2005 when it was reborn as a modern three-screen art house, showing the latest indie hits, choice midnight cult items and occasional foreign classics.

    There’s more movie in the first three minutes of John Magary’s feature debut than there is in entire film trilogies: a cacophonous swirl of honking horns and barking dogs soundtracking a night in the life of a deadbeat. Mat (Josh Lucas), a scraggl...

One of the best independent cinemas in the country.  Great place to catch a Q&A with the director of a given documentary or film on opening weekend.  Clean and attended with friendly service.
