I would need a 7 hour slow-cinema epic to express my happiness for the existence of this theater. It has been a long time coming for Charlotte to get an indie focused, independently owned cinema. I kicked off my journey with a screening of Memoria which is exactly the type of film only a place like this can provide. I cant wait to see many more moving, thoughtful, and enlightening films here in the future. Its a beautiful haven for film fans that is instantly a cant miss stop for those living or traveling through the Queen City. I also cant wait to see what special, curated programming and festivals they bring to the city (heres hoping for a horror festival one day ).

Oh what a wonderful movie theater! We loved the vibes we got the moment we drove up! We watched Marcel the Shell with Shoes on! The theater itself had great sound quality, comfortable seats and a great selection of snacks and drinks! Love that we have such a cute place here in the CLT area!

Having visited a few times, I cannot recommend the Independent Picture House highly enough. The theater staff are all extremely nice and there is a good variety of concessions (huge fan of the cookies). The interior design and feel of the theater is incredible and if you look around at photos in the lobby and the film ads decorating some of the wallpaper you can see a lot of fun nods to Charlottes history of independent theaters. The screening rooms all have top notch picture and sound quality and I think the micro cinema will be a really cool place for future small film screenings. Most importantly for me, they have excellent film programming. This theater has not been open for a very long time and within this short time I have already been able to watch a number of very interesting and diverse films there. Most of the films I have seen there are movies that I would not have known about at all if they were not screened at the Independent Picture House. Having a place like this to discover new films and art is incredible for our city. Very much looking forward to the future of this theater and experiencing more films here.

I am SO HAPPY that Charlotte finally has an indie movie theater again! The staff are so friendly and welcoming. I love the special touches throughout the theater, including the wall of past movie posters that were shown at the Manor Theater (r.i.p.), what a bittersweet trip down memory lane. THANK YOU INDEPENDENT PICTURE HOUSE!

I watched my first film last night at the Independent Picture House! I absolutely loved it. The staff is friendly and the rocker style seats in the larger auditoriums are very comfortable. I am yet to try to recliner chairs in the Micro Cinema but they look very cosy. I love the interior in the welcome area too. You can tell they have included lots of little details and nods to history of film in Charlotte. It's a perfect place to watch films you won't get to see anywhere else in Charlotte and hang out afterwards. I will be back again for sure.
