Burns Court is an interesting area. Our walk to the movie was entertaining & pleasant as we enjoyed the beautiful,quaint old houses on the way there. The theater is well kept & clean. Certainly a charming place!

Saw "A Fantasic Woman". All the money from ticket sales, popcorn, candy, etc. goes to support the Film Society of Sarasota. Theater is small. There is free parking at a lot on Orange - a couple of blocks away.

If you like art house and intelligent movies you cannot go wrong here, It is one of the few places left that shows art movies.

Great time with my kids in this small theatre that has 2 or 3 sections. Comfortable chairs and in a cute area of restaurants and shops. No lines, no wait.

Small theatre showing independent films. All of the films begin at the same time so once they are running, the lobby seems deserted. Nice night out!

Quaintest (is that a word?) little movie theatre shows some of the most powerful films around. Three small intimate screens where you feel safe, comfortable and among adults frankly. Join the membership to save on films, popcorn and wine if you plan to frequent the...More

Clean, comfortable and artsy. Great selection of unique movies. Small theaters make viewing very intimate. Great downtown location for drinks and dinner before or after your Indie film. Worth looking at the schedule to try something a bit different from mainstream theaters.

I love Burns Court because of the well-chosen films. This is not the place to see 3D block buster movies. Also there are no annoying teenagers running up and down the aisles! The concession stand has great ice cream and good snacks. Great place.

There is no parking for the theatre. Be prepared for a long walk unless you get lucky.
