Dan Harkins' family lived in the apartment upstairs when he was a child and his father was first stating the Movie theater biz. Dan has lovingly restored this theater and shows very limited run Gems!
Mmmm red hots
Awesome place for indie flicks. Expand your movie horizons and come here!
This place is small, but you can find movies that aren't in other theaters and it isn't usually crowded. It's still a Harkins though so you can get a student discount with ID. Easy to walk to as well.
As an indie kid, I'm in love with Valley Art. It's my favorite theatre in AZ, and while it only has one screen, I feel a genuine love for the film medium during each and every visit.
I visited the Valley Art Theater for an extra credit assignment for my Politics Class. I've walked by here before, but discovered that it is the oldest and longest operating movie theater in Az!
OK, everyone has to go here at least once during ASU days. I say Rocky Horror Picture Show in 80s more this than I can count. Great foreign films and AZ Family Harkins' history, legacy Cinema
buyer beware at concession stand.
If you like independent or foreign movies this is the place to go. Right on Mill Ave so it should be very close for most students. Usually only plays one movie as there is only one theater.
Nice classic 1 screen theatre very clean
Great place to see an independent or foreign film.
