a/perture cinema is an independent, locally-owned art house cinema in the heart of downtown Winston-Salem, North Carolina, "the City of Arts and Innovation." Screening a mix of independent, foreign, documentary, local, and festival films in two 80-seat theaters, one 45-seat screening room, and our newly added 25-seat alternative viewing space "petit a/", a/perture cinema is the community's home for film and the cultural dialogue it spurs.
 
In addition to the traditional freshly-popped popcorn, candy and Coca-Cola beverages, a/perture also offers a wide selection of beer and wine, healthy snacks and special treats made by local bakeries.  Plenty of parking is available in the surrounding downtown area, both on street and in the Cherry/Marshall Parking Deck adjacent to the cinema (see our "downtown" tab for more details).  a/perture brings back the intimate movie-going experience while showcasing films that enrich, educate and challenge us all.

concessions


about page- beer2about page- candy
We've got lots of concessions to offer! a/perture cinema's concession bar features more than the typical multiplex- we offer a rotating selection of over fifteen domestic and imported beers and over ten wines that are available by the glass and the bottle.  Want something a little more traditional? a/perture serves fountain Coca-Cola products as well as assorted bottled drinks and made-to-order hot coffee and tea. Of course a trip to the movies would not be complete without a/perture's freshly popped popcorn--which makes a surprisingly good pairing with an elegant red wine or nice cold beer. 

As a local business, we're proud to carry a number of locally made products, including Wolfies Frozen CustardChad's Carolina Corn, candy from Black Mountain Chocolate, beer from Foothills Brewery, and more. a/perture also has a large selection of different candies ranging from imported Belgian chocolate to staples like M&Ms, Raisinets and Skittles. 
Stay tuned for more info on inventory, specials, and more!
