The Independent Picture House
- Open Now
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 ).
This little theater is something to experience. It was my 1st time here as I went for a movie screening & was pleasantly surprised at this place. Now, it's in the middle of an industrial-looking area & one would not expect to find this here, so this leads me to believe maybe the area will be built-up in the coming years. The place was really clean (seems almost new) with adequate parking outside. The decor was welcoming & all film related of course. Staff seemed pretty cool. There looked to be only three theaters: a "micro" theater & two bigger auditoriums, let's say half the size of an AMC therater maybe. It's nice & quaint. The seats do rise up a few steps, but only so much so beware of sitting behind a taller person (they will block your view, that's the only reason I took a star off). The seats don't recline too much & are not heated, they are just regular cinema seats. The concessions are your normal popcorn, drinks, and candy. Not sure if alcohol was served, I didn't notice. It would be nice to have an ICEE machine there in the future & more options for concession snacks. The bathrooms were clean but take note that they are "All Gender Restrooms"- no male only/female only bathrooms and they seemed to be different sizes inside. Not sure if they rent their theaters out for private events, but it'd be super nice if they did because it's such a personal theater. All in all I'd come to see a movie here again.
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!
Newish multi-control seats in theaters with great sound and video quality. The style in the lobby is brightly colored, and the bathrooms have old movie wallpaper (very cool). Enjoyed finding this place and looking forward to watching more movies at this independent theater.
Fabulous theater! Knowledgeable staff and very intimate as there were very few people here when I caught a movie with my Dad. Had the whole theater to ourselves! Not sure how long this secret will last but definitely worth the trip if you want to see something besides another Marvel Superhero movie. Thanks for being here.
