The Screen is very reminiscent of the best Greenwich Village Art movie houses - only a lot cleaner! The choice of films is outstanding and the staff is friendly and eager to please. Being on campus makes it seem out of the way, but a...More

A challenge to find (it's on the campus of the Santa Fe University of Art and Design), but worth the effort. We saw a great movie there (Bonsai) that would definitely never run in our home town!

The screen is an independent gem tucked away on the former campus of the college of Santa Fe (now Santa fe college of art or something like that). They show new releases before any other theater in NM. Bonus: the theater is kept very clean,...More

The Screen is not well known in the community, but it has wonderful movies. I try to support this venue at every opportunity.

One of the few venues in Santa Fe for 'arty' films. Always an interesting selection of films. Comfortable seating. A pleasure to see films here.

The Screen is the best place in Santa Fe, along with the CCA, to see movies that are foreign or out of the mainstream. Mostly locals go there because of the difficulty in finding it. A major contributor to the intellectual life of Santa Fe.

Always a good mix of foreign, independent and non-mainstream films. Nice theater with comfortable seats; good snacks, including some locally made; easy access and parking on the campus of Santa Fe School of Art and Design.

One of the sites in Santa Fe that shows the best, non-Hollywood movies. Lots of seats, good sound system and banked seating. I am really short, so this last is especially important to me. Also very good: CCA
