Independent movie house that expands ones horizons. The theatre is a historic building with what you’d expect for seats. The cafe is wonderful with a menu that would suite anyone. The films are great!

A pleasant evening at the Little Cafe with live music on a Monday night. A light menu of sandwiches, salads, pizza and nightly specials to choose from with beer and wine options too.

The venue has the most spectacular vibe! The friendliness of the people and the food/desserts that are offered is grand! Great place to feel like you are away from the typical theatre but close to home!

The Little is awesome if you want to see movies beyond the blockbusters that most theaters show. They show a wide variety of independent films and have amazing treats!

This theater has so much to offer. Great foreign and indie films, a cafe with coffee, food, and live music. The movie theater sells the best popcorn! If you go , do not forget the popcorn.
