Where are the crowds? This quirky little theatre is the BEST deal in town and I'm always surprised that it's not packed. They run great movies, offer adult beverages, good concessions, bistro tables in the back rows if you want to dine during the show, and front door parking. The owners are friendly and available and though I'm not crazy about the menagerie of birds and reptiles in the lobby...they certainly add to the adventurous spirit of this jewel of a theater. The showtimes are never the same from one day to the next so you always have to double check to see when your choice of movies is showing, but at a mere $3.00 a ticket...who cares? South Windemere Theater is a Charleston entertainment masterpiece. I think I'll go again tonight!

Pros: Small and intimate, you can enjoy alcoholic beverages and eat dinner during the show, convenient parking, fun and friendly atmosphere

Cons: Must check movie showtimes daily, if you are afraid of birds and lizards..go somewhere else.

Pros: 3 DOLLAR ADMISSION, ALL SHOWS, ALL DAYS, ALL NIGHTS

This is an inexpensive spot to see a movie and worth a try. The sound system is not very good and the there are birds in the lobby that can start chirping during the movie.

These may be the largest screens in Charleston...with excellent projection...the way films should be seen.
This is a family owned and operated theater and tickets are still only three dollars... they are able to do this because the new releases they show are a few weeks behind the opening dates in the major chains. It is worth the wait. The concessions are reasonably priced, a variety of beers are available, and you can order dinner from next door. If you arrive early, you can visit with the theater's iguana ( caged).
The proprietors select the better current films, ranging from G to R, and sometimes bring in older classics. No slasher or sexploitation junk.
This place is unique, and I look first to their billings if I am thinking about going to a movie. If you haven't been there, give it a try.

South Windermere Cinemas is smaller and less comfortable than most of the larger, state of the art theaters but their popcorn is good and the prices are more reasonable.

They have one major advantage over the larger movie chains and that is that they frequently show offbeat films that their competitors don't.

Parking is ample and the staff is friendly. If you want to see the 'quiet' films that rely solely on script, ambiance and acting to tell the story, South Windermere Cinemas will be the most likely theater to be showing that small gem that won't even be playing at the others.

This is a great little neighborhood theater. Be careful about the times on the web or phone-- sometimes they change before you can get to the theater. Seats are not very comfortable, but otherwise this is a great small theater. There are tables and chairs in the back so you can get pizza, sushi, nachos, beer, etc. Candy and sodas are really cheap. If you become a regular, the people who run the place will feel like friends. Be sure to look for the parrots (or are they macaws?) in the inset in the wall, to the left of the concession stand. They aren't talking to strangers yet, but they'll click at you.

This place is fantastic! The management is the nicest bunch of peope I have met in some time. You can order adult beverages with your movie. But, wait....it gets better. You can also order sushi or mediteranian food from the resturants adjacent to the theater and enjoy them while you watch your movie. Last, but, not least, all shows are $3 and the consessions are reasonably priced! This is the best deal in town and a great atmosphere. I can't say enough good things about this place.
