The Tower Theatre

Conseils des habitants
Great spot for independent or foreign movies (among others). It's old but charming, and we always grab a post-movie bite at the adjoining Tower Cafe (this place gets packed at brunch and prime time dinner hour, but is calmer after an evening movie).
It started as an outlier, a neighborhood theater showing second-run films that had premiered weeks earlier in first-run movie houses on downtown’s glittering K Street. Seventy-five years later, the Tower Theatre stands as the center of foreign and independent cinema in Sacramento.
Built in 1938. It is a Sacramento landmark. The Tower cafe, next door, has wonderful outdoor dining.
A Land Park/Sacramento icon. The theater that spawned Tower Records. It's a 1930's deco theater that specialized in independent and foreign movies. Definitely the best place to see a movie in Sacramento. Especially if you see it in the main theater. The have 3 screens.

Point of Interest
“B Street Theatre was founded by actor Timothy Busfield in 1986 as Theatre for Children, Inc., the company's first focus was a touring theatre company for children. The B Street Theatre School Tour (formerly known as Fantasy Theatre) was and continues to be extremely popular in the community— performing 12 times per week, 38 weeks a year. The School Tour has received critical acclaim by the media, educators and most importantly, the estimated 3.6 million California children (currently about 200,000 per year) who’ve attend performances. For many children, The B Street Theatre School Tour is their only exposure to the live theatre. In 1991, in an effort to broaden the success of B Street Theatre School Tour, Busfield and his brother Buck Busfield created B Street Theatre. Most of the plays produced each year are world, national, West Coast or regional premieres. B Street Theatre has enjoyed stunning success since its inception. B Street Theatre performs to approximately 70,000 adults annually.”
