The Aperture took over in 2002 after the Northpoint Cinemas closed. For years the Northpoint 5 was to place to go see first-run exclusive features as well as arthouse, independent films along with documentaries, foreign and Oscar winning presentations. It also had the opportunity to screen second-run films and once in a blue moon reissue standard Hollywood classics(ranging from “Gone With The Wind”, to “Casablanca” and “Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo”). It was Winston-Salem’s only arthouse theater from 1987 until it closed in 2002.

For many years Northpoint 5 was the go-to place for foreign, arthouse, indpendent and award-winning films. It was a great theatre. I hated when it closed. Luckily, Aperture kind of fills that void now, but Aperture’s screens and seating is not the best.

I loved this theatre growing up. Around the time I was in high school, it was the only theatre in the area that would let you into R-rated films without an ID. They also played many controversial arthouse style pictures, including ‘Romance’ and ‘Y Tu Mama Tambien’
