I love an indie theater (although owned by Landmark) that plays actual indie films unlike CineArts which plays "indie" films such as "Australia". The theater is not the most comfortable for a long film, and the screen is small, but it is a great intimate place to see a film.

This theater is definitely a reminder of olden days with small theaters and nothing fancy. They carry some unique films that are worthwhile seeing. Make a point to take in a movie here every now and again.

For independent film on the Peninsula, the Aquarius is usually the place to go. There are two screening rooms, but both are kind of on the small side. Prices are about what you'd expect to pay: $9 for the regular price ticket, about about $10 total for popcorn, soda, and a candy bar. The sound is quite good, but the picture quality can sometimes leave a bit to be desired. That being said, the films themselves are usually excellent, and they frequently have weekend midnight showings of cult classics (something beyond Rocky Horror cheesiness). The location is great too, right off University Ave, so there is lots to eat and lots to do before or after a show.

PROS: wonderful movies outside the mainstream, great locale
CONS: small screening rooms, not so comfy seats
