The new theater’s website says: “As a boutique independent cinema, The Last Picture House offers audiences a refreshing experience miles away from the multiplex. Relax and enjoy a coffee, a bite, or a drink with friends in the cocktail lounge, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Arsenal Bridge and the Motor Row District.”
“Take in the rare art collection, featuring posters from all around the world and one-of-a-kind movie props used on screen in your favorite films. Watch a movie beneath the stars on the rooftop screen with refreshments provided from the rooftop bar, all next to a sweeping view of the Mississippi River. Or grab a comfortable seat in one of the two state-of-the-art theaters, featuring incredible Dolby Atmos surround sound, laser and 35mm projection, and balcony seating that harked back to classic movie palaces of yesteryear.”
