Seven Favorite Spots to See a Film in Phoenix

There's no better escape than the one found in a theater seat in front of a large screen. Great films take their audiences to cool, faraway places with interesting characters and captivating stories.

Sure, you can hit up your local big box for the latest Hollywood hit, but if you're looking for an independent experience, here are seven of our favorite cinema escapes:

7. Phoenix Art Museum Phoenix Art Museum shows art films and films that relate to current museum exhibitions, and curators bring in experts and host post-film discussions. Don't bank on sneaking in snacks or grabbing a slushie at the front door, but do plan on seeing a cool independent film from movie makers around the world. Admission is usually free or $5 (depending on the event), and while you're there, check out some artwork.
