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.RENTALS
