Even though we feature state-of-the-art projection and sound systems, our customers enjoy the opportunity to "step back in time" and experience movie-going as it was in the 50s, when neighborhood theaters were in abundance. Some of our customers walk to the theater and enjoy arriving early in order to relax in the spacious lobby on the mod couches and chairs.Before you visit Minneapolis, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

I love going to this neighborhood theater. This will not dent your budget! Inexpensive tickets and popcorn. The best popcorn in any theater! The seats slant up toward the back, so there is no obstruct... more »
I was visiting from out of town and found this little gem of a theater. Great price, nice seats, large venue and good movie. The place does get pretty crowded when a movie is ending the new crowd starts to line up for the next show but the theater is big enough that seating isn't an issue. Great find!
As a kid in Milwaukee, they built Budget Theaters in the mid 80s. 2nd run movies at a discount price in a multiplex setting. Movies 2 or 3 months later at a fraction of the price, I loved it. Milwaukee also had a few landmark theaters. Restored theaters playing indie and art house movies. Riverview is both of these put together and it's one of my favorite theaters ever. Reduced ticket prices, check. Restored theater, check. Neighborhood feel, check. And to top it off, really great concessions pricing. It's cash only, so bring a $10 bill and treat yourself to fresh pop corn and a soda.
