Jane Pickens Theater
There is no better place in Newport to watch a movie and feel as though you have just stepped into an old fashioned nickelodeon. This quaint downtown theater manages to keep its unassuming spot among busy nearby shops and restaurants. Jane Pickens Theatre is host to the independent and foreign films you would find in New York's Greenwich Village, and is one of the hosts for the annual JVC Jazz Festival . The one screen theater has erratic show times and sometimes absent ticket takers, but the freshly made popcorn and large, worn seats create an ambience that make every movie pleasurable.
Jane Pickens is great. It is a single screen (the Opera House theater next door has three) and shows a lot of great independent films. There ARE other options on the island (including next door and Holiday Cinemas in Middletown with 5 or 6 screens), they just aren't very good.
The best thing about this theatre is its location in downtown Newport. It is not a modern theatre but there are really no other options in newport or on the island. The original reviewer is incorrect about the single theatre. There are indeed three . The main theatre (but least used) is a similar to that of a medium sized playhouse. The other two are small and cozy.
