The tower is a sacramento treasure. Beautiful art deco interior, with a palatial main room with a large screen and two side rooms with smaller screens a third of the size; playing a variety of independent, limited release, and foreign movies. students get in for 6$ with a current ID card any time of any day. Support independent cinema, almost any movie you see at the tower will be at least quite good. The seats aren't brand new, some reviews complain about them but I think they are fairly comfortable, definitely not a reason to not go to the tower. The tower cafe next door is lovely and the food is in large portions and delicious.

the seats in main theatre are broken, or near broken. So sad the owners don't care about such a basic

I love old movie theaters and was so happy when I found the Tower. While it would have been great if they could have kept it as a single screen theater it is still worth the trip. Even among old movie houses it stands out for its' unique archtecture. The selection of movies is excellent with a good blend of artsy and limited release main stream films.

The seats aren't the greatest, but in the MAIN screen, the surround sound is out of this world! Actually in the other 2 screens the sound is very similar, however the MAIN screen projects it better. I recently seen "Top Gun"...I felt as if I was in the aircraft myself! The staff is so so, the snack bar lady very rude (the blond or bleached hair).

This is the only independent art house cinema Sacramento has left, since the Crest sadly discontinued its daily films last Spring. And I was pleasantly surprised to find Tower has brought back its all beef-frank. I'm not a big frank fan, its purely nostalgia. Something about munching a dog at a Saturday matinee in an historic art house. The best films I've experienced, I've seen at the Tower. I'm proud to have exposed my son to true art and entertainment, through these films, while he was growing up. There are mainstream films shown here, many have been nominated or won Oscars. Sure, the seats aren't so comfortable and the two small screens are a bit funky, but one can always opt to view the new releases while they're still in the main large theater. And for the budget-minded, Tower's admission fees are below others in the area: $1.75 less for matinees; $1.50 less for seniors and kids; and $1.25 less for general. So a family of four could take grandma and grandpa to the Tower for $42 or pay over $50 at Century. For me, I'll continue to support the Tower and hope new customers will also see the benefits.
