Independently owned theater
Baxter Ave Theater is great because they play a mix of the new blockbusters along with foreign and independent films. It is in the heart of the artsy Highlands neigbhorhood so it is a great place to catch a movie and then go out to a great restaurant or bar. It might not have the hugest screens or fancy concessions like the larger chain theaters, but the staff is friendly and believe it or not, people come here to actually watch a movie. Even on weekend nights when there are lots of teens about, I've never been disturbed in a movie by loud talking. Keep a watch for the different film festivals they have throughout the year and their midnight cult movies.
