  • The is an incredible art gallery/movie theater combo. The interior aesthetic is very clean, simple and modern. The curators are never short on interesting, contemporary installations meant to provoke thought and conversation. The staff is very friendly and welcoming to art enthusiasts new and old. The theater is truly a treasure. It's quiet, well lit and has excellent sound quality. Add fair prices and the comfiest seats in GR and you have an unparalleled movie-going experience; under the radar (and underground - literally!) but definitely worth checking out!
  • Fascinating, edgy, contemporary shows. Wonderful spaces all throughout the museum. Lots of support for local artists and art education! Great workshops and a theater with an eclectic variety of indie films!
  • I want to love this place so much, but it's scale leaves something to be desired. I guess that's on me and my expectations, but it's hard to rate it higher until there's actually more to see.
  • Very cozy atmosphere.. The staff are nice. Very modern-looking and clean. Seeing a movie here was a fun and different experience.. definitely a cool place to check out.
  • Been to a couple of shows here. Really a great space, and they are putting together unique and varied exhibitions.
