    Great place to catch an indie film or documentary. Much cheaper than any of the Regal/United Artists theaters. Close to some cute restaurants (Zahav, Positano Coast). Make sure to park in the garage.

    If you love indie films, this is the place to see them. A short walk from just about anywhere in Old City, Society Hill, South Street and Penn's Landing.

    This place doesn't have that typical gross movie theater smell, and the seats recline a little which is nice.
