I walked into this place a couple of times to peek around at the facilities but never watched anything here. Essentially it is a bar-lounge with video/DVD type projection onto a pull-down screen. The programs, as displayed on a poster, are often quite interesting and well-selected, with a good variety of movies and, as its name implies, some revivals of classics. It would be nice, however, to have back in Westerly a movie theatre with 35mm capability and theatre seating in a non-socializing-and-non-drinking ambiance. At the moment Westerly has none. This is not to put down this establishment. Indeed having one like it in every community everywhere would be an asset, and I wish the place well, but I would like to see what I underlined above also. To my way of thinking, that is what real movie theatres are about. I should add that I do not live in Westerly, but in Johnston, about 35 miles away.

Some of the newer films shown here from time to time represent the only public RI showings. For example, the upcoming A State of Mind, a fabulous documentary about the mind-boggling North Korean “Mass Games,” has not been shown in the area and is worth going out of your way for. The coffee served here is excellent and can be had in real ceramic cups! Remember those?
