Please don’t close. Please. I love going to see your midnight movies. Long live the Ken Cinema. Don’t do this. 🎥🎞📽💜
Are you closing your doors for good in March?
Do Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf again, but on a weekend please :)
🤞🏽🤞🏽
Yesterday, for the first time on the big screen, I saw "The Man Who Knew Too Much." It still holds up after all these years. It is my favorite Hitchcock film
Movie recommendations. The Crow and Natural Born Killers for their 25th anniversary.
Great theater still operating from films golden age. The current managers Laauli, Tyler and Veronica doing a great job managing and caring for this classic cinema. Can't ever forget Teresa who has been working there for years. Great Art house for Documentary / foreign films / & Classic films from the past. A great combination. Plus midnight movies weekly on Saturdays. A five star experience always!
Show Blade Runner (The Final Cut) on Tuesday November 19th, 2019 for the story's exact timeline setting.
