Cheap movies, great popcorn and a retro vibe.. Cheap movies, great popcorn and a retro vibe draw people to this Minneapolis theater. This '50s-era South Minneapolis theater would set Dean Martin’s heart aflutter: Mid-century modern furniture ornaments the lobby; a retro carpet looks like it’s been decorated with party favors; hanging lights look like translucent candy pieces; and the tiled walls and curved ceilings spell Hollywood glamour. Those aren’t the only things drawing theater-goers to this renovated masterpiece. The Riverview showcases cheap movies ($2 or $3), and serves up some of the best popcorn in town. It’s made from local corn and topped with butter from local producers Hope Creamery. In fact, the scent of this famous popcorn is so alluring that people come from all over to grab a bag to go.
Great Old Time Theater Is Reborn Here. This place takes me back to my youth (looong time ago). I feel like I'm so welcome when I come in the door. The temperature is always just right. They really support neighborhood activities and often offer local films as well as big time movies. The popcorn is a gourmet's delight. As cheap as this theatre is, I urge you not to bring your own treats. Their treats are great!
Riverview Theater. If the retro charm doesn't get you, the popcorn will......plus you get a cheap movie to boot! The Riverview Theater is a must-see.
Beautiful neighborhood theater with great decor and wonderful sound system. First off, best popcorn I've ever had. They do it old school with real butter melted right there! The theater was redone in the 50's and everything is original besides the actual theater which has new comfortable seats and a great sound system. Friendly service, very clean, and only $2 for a show.
