Best College Theater in the Country

The Valley Art has been around longer than ASU has been a University (1940). Back in the 70's and 80's they used to have all day Beatle's or Rolling Stones film festivals with rare concert footage. They even showed the 8 hour long Soviet Unions version of Tolstoy's "War and Peace". Every friday at midnight was "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and Saturday's was "EraserHead".
Now it's more mainstream and no more Rocky Horror which is a shame. But the place is worth visiting for no other reason than the cool Art Deco interior.
They still manage to maintain the collge atmosphere though with the occasional art film or concerts like Joan Biaz a couple years back. Check this place out.

Make a Night of It

Walkable Mill Ave. has bars, restaurants, and shops galore, making it perfect for an after movie stroll.

Plan Your Pit Stops

Remodeled restrooms are beautiful, but tiny, expect long lines after the movie.
