    I did not expect to met one of the creators/designers of Joda when I woke up in Philipsberg, St Maarten. Avoid the water taxi and walk the short distance to the town centre and on Front Street you wil...  more »

    If you dig Star Wars, along with other effects-based movies, this place is worth a walk-through. Cool videos and memorabilia. The owner was there and answered our questions and was a really nice guy.  more »

    We had the best experience! We were anticipating this visit for almost a year. And Nick did not disappoint. He talked movies with my husband, gave our teenagers great words of wisdom, he was very tentative to us all. We took pictures with him and purchased memorabilia to mark this occasion.

    An interesting collection of movie memorabilia focusing on the owners work in the film industry. We arrived early and had plenty of time and space to enjoy looking through out the space. It could easily be cramped and uncomfortable during a busier time. The bathroom was extremely clean! The exhibit ends right at the owners work space.

    A must stop for any Star Wars fan. Nick is very friendly and is happy to chat you up.

    I've been here on 4 separate occasions and each time there's something new to see! If your a Star Wars fan...or just a Movie fan, there's plenty of memorabilia to see (and buy) here. Nick and his wife are always here and love to chat with patrons and maybe get a picture with them!
