I highly recommend the Enzian. It is truly a one of a kind Central Florida establishment. They have art house flicks and oldies...nothing run-of-the-mill. Great place for a first date because you can chat a bit before the movie, they have food, beer and wine. I took someone there years ago and he recently mentioned that he still remembers it. A must for movie buffs!

The Enzian is a great little movie theater that plays interesting movies. You can order food and drinks to enjoy while the movie is playing - I recommend wine and brie. This theater plays newer films from the film festival as well as older classics, such as The Birds.
A summer favorite has been Popcorn Flicks. This consists of one movie, one night a month that is free and outside in the park. You can bring blankets, chairs, food and drink. It is a great experience for the whole family or if you want to bring a special date.

Independant films and a craving for something different is your reason to go to the Enzian Theater. Munch on some light food, sip a glass of wine, and open your mind to films you most likely will not see anywhere else.

If you want food and wine delivered to you while lounging in comfortable seating--while watching a movie on the big screen... you're going to have to deal with servers walking through.

Luckily, these aren't action movies, folks, and the stories unfolding on the screen in front of you will keep you captivated far more than an occasional head bobbing through the audience.

Compared to a mega-plex, I've never yet heard a screaming child, or an audience member talking on a phone or AT the screen here.

Pros: Rarer Films, Comfy Seating, Table Service

Cons: arrive early, parking limited, few show times

.

I went solely to see a movie that wasn't playing up here in St. Augustine or Jacksonville.

The couch my friend and I sat at was comfortable, food was good (eating a BBQ sandwich during a movie was a silly idea - drippy, and I had a coffee table, rather than a regular table - several tables, though), the dessert was excellent. Our server was very sweet, and we talked with her about the movies she was looking forward to and about the chef before the film. Both my friend and I had a great time, and I came back two days later with more friends. If you're worried about not having people in the way, get there early, at least a half hour before the show so you can get a good pick to see. I would suggest a couch, they're down in front, but you're totally unobstructed.

Pros: atmosphere, food, staff

I don't understand why people order pizza, sandwiches, etc during the movies. All that noises, interruptions, distractions, etc. I ordered one drink & the waiter interrupted me to gather my money during the climax of the movie. Waiters kept going back & forth during the entire movie. Irritating! What is the whole point of going to the movies if you spend most of the time ordering, eating, paying the check, etc? Plus all the distractions from others. When the door opened, people ran like greedy kids to get their tables since non-members couldn't reserve the table in advance. Like a private club - that means attitude & pretentiousness. Too bad, a small independent film theater gives the multi-plexes a much better name.

Pros: Film selections

Cons: Distractions, Noises, Horrible seating

.

The seating is horrid: heads in the way everywhere. The food is overpriced and the popcorn was stale. Some movies are great, but most are just class B. Parking is a nightmare becaues there is never enough spots. Only go if you're looking for something different. Different it is, but great it's not.

One of Central Florida's better cultural experiences.
