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.

  • Sturges' remake of Kurosawa's Seven Samurai is always worth a look, mainly for the performances of McQueen, Bronson, Coburn and Vaughn. The theme of the group of professionals coming together to defend a cause or undertake a useless task, mainly a...

      Amid all the mirrored surfaces and hazy ambiguities of Olivier Assayas’s bewitching, brazenly unconventional ghost story, this much can be said with certainty: Kristen Stewart has become one hell of an actor. The former Twilight star was easily th...

      If you wanted to point to the perfect Hollywood Western—not necessarily the most complex or delicately shaded, but tallest in the saddle—John Sturges’s iconic 1960 oater would be hard to outgun. It sweeps you up in manly camaraderie, has a killer ...

        Most modern filmmakers got their start in commercials and music video. David Lynch, on the other hand, started out as a surrealist painter and indeed, his earliest short films "The Alphabet" and "The Grandmother" were partially animated. He wanted...

      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.
