The Little is a non-profit organization that has 5 screens showing wonderful movies you can't often find in other theaters. If you can catch one of their "Talk Backs," you'll be in for a treat because they are a bonus after the film. I went when the writer of "Me and Orson Welles" was there to answer questions after the film. I highly recommend supporting this gem in Rochester. We're lucky to have it!
For the price you pay this theater really is great!! I don't feel like I'm getting ripped off and I don't mind waiting the extra time for my favorite movies to hit the screen. I have never had a bad experience here and I love being able to go to a movie and be able afford to buy all the drinks and snacks that I want. It reminds me of how easy it once was to take the family out to see a movie.
If you don't want to spend $8 on a movie, Movies 10 is a nice alternative. This second-run theater shows popular films just as they start to come out on DVD. Films are just $1.50 or $2 on weekends. Friday and Saturday nights CAN be an issue, though, as teens come out in crowds. Weekend matinees, though, are great and management DOES try to control the crowds. Good popcorn.
