Midtown Art Cinema might not have the fancy gimmicks of your local stadiumesque theater, but in addition to showing blockbusters, it screens indie and limited-release flicks, serves White Castle cheeseburgers, and has the homey charm of theaters past. Film buffs will appreciate the Tuesday classics and special programs, such as Out on Film. Everyone will appreciate being able to buy beer (there’s a decent selection of craft brews), wine, and spirits. 931 Monroe Drive, landmarktheatres.com
