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.

Thank goodness for The Independent Picture House!! I went to see Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song which I loved. I loved The Independent Picture House more! Ever since The Manor closed Ive been missing movies that will never play at Regal or AMC theaters. Very cool theater and GREAT POPCORN!!

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 ).

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!

Just saw my first film at the new Independent Picture House in Charlotte. Fantastic experience! The new cinema is a really cool spot with a fun and interesting new lobby and the theaters are super comfortable. Having a true art house cinema in Charlotte is a cultural destination that a growing and vibrant city like Charlotte needs. Go see a film!!
