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. Actors and directors often introduce their work here on opening night, and the high-toned café provides sweets, lattes and substantials.

    Would definitely recommend seeing a film or event here!  Aside from the theater itself, the best part is the poster gallery up in the theater. There are always a lot of great pieces of art on display (currently, it's Eastern European movie posters of classic films like The Birds and Back to the Future).  If you love movies, this is the place to go on a Saturday afternoon - there are always unique films screening, great Q&A events, and fun midnight showings of classics.


    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.
