We like that this theater shows smaller independent films and the theater itself is small. It has comfy seats and cheap eats/drinks.

This theater has a retro feel, very clean and reasonably priced on movie snacks. I had a great experience and have told family and will tell friends about it. Look forward to next time!

What a gem of a movie theater! It's quaint, clean, and everyone who worked there was sweet. The moment the movie finished, an employee was already holding the door for everyone, asking all how they enjoyed the movie and wishing everyone a good night. The decor is very nice, and the theater isn't packed or a winding maze of hallways-- it's just right. It's a bit far for me, but I would come make the trip to see a movie here again, and recommend to friends. Thank you for a wonderful, personable experience!

From Our Editors

It's 1980-something. Glen, a young boy, dons a pair of glasses with one blue lens and one red, excited by this new technology that's supposed to make things on the screen pop out at you. During the next two hours, Glen ducks swooping avians during the revival of Alfred Hitchcock's ¬_The Birds_ in 3-D, terrified, yet thrilled. This is one of Glen Gray's earliest memories about the theater his father built more than 30 years ago. Today, Glen lives out those moments each day as the proprietor of Movies of Delray, where the projectors roll a medley of Hollywood features, and foreign, art-house, and independent films.

Gold walls and burgundy curtains lend to the lobby’s art-deco air, and a large chandelier illuminates more than 60 pencil drawings of movie icons of yore, such as John Wayne, Elvis, and Marilyn Monroe. This old-fashioned lobby disguises the updates within: brand-new bathrooms, granite countertops at the concession stand, and in the theaters themselves, digital surround sound and updated seating. Rows of black leather seats cushion moviegoers with high backs and wide benches so cozy that Glen claims guests have fallen asleep in them, only waking up at the end of the picture or when Bruce Willis turns out to have been a metaphor all along.

In celebration of film, professor Shelly Isaacs graces the theater with screenings of obscure Oscar-winning or Oscar-nominated foreign films. After each screening, he discusses the film with audiences, dissecting and analyzing the cinematography, characters, and plot.
