Went to watch a documentary of an American Idian there and the place is amazing. If your going to watch a movie and it is sold out get there early for good seating. They serve refreshments and have adult beverages lso.

Magical.
Jan 2020 • Couples
Magical and small venue to see indies and artistic films rather than blockbusters. Old school charm. Affordable. Delicious popcorn. A fun local experience. Very great service.

Love this venue!

This is Spokane's best movie theater - intimate theaters, great films that you don't see in the big movie theaters, and popcorn in metal bowls! And, for those above 21, there is beer and wine for sale. Finally, before or after the movie, you have so many great restaurant/bar choices in the neighborhood.

not your corporate movie theatre
Feb 2019
Love seeing movies here! They play many movies not seen at other theatres in our town. The popcorn in a metal bowl, and drinks in reusable glasses are the icing on the cake!

Great Place in Spokane to See an Indie Film
Jan 2019
I'm a big fan of Indie films so I am usually at this small theater to see a film at least every other month. Less expensive than going to one of the mainstream movie theaters as well as the theater has a throwback enviance to it. Recently saw the Green Book there and plan to see the new Laurel & Hardy film when it comes to the theater.

Look to the Magic Lantern for those Searchlight movies.
Aug 2018
The Lantern is where you will find the great small films that are ignored by the AMCs of the world. A couple of weeks ago we went there to see RBG the great bio documentary about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. The two theaters are quite small, informal and intimate. Popcorn is served up in stainless steel bowls. We had boxed leftovers from our dinner next door and they were kind enough to let us borrow some space in their beverage cooler for our box until we retrieved it after our movie. For an eclectic and fun movie experience it cant be beat. So we check out what's playing at the Lantern on a regular basis.

Delightful theatre
Feb 2018
This is definitely not your normal theatre. Very intimate viewing rooms. It felt like a mom and pop operation. Truly one of Spokane's highlights

If you're into foreign films and risky business.

I like to go to the magic lantern when the normal theaters are not showing specific shows. It's nice to support a local theater.

Cozy and nice combo with the Saranac
Nov 2017 • Couples
This was our 1st visit to the new location and it was nice to see that folks could bring in adult beverages from the adjoining Saranac. All ages attended and popcorn in big stainless bowls was the de jour for many kids & adults. Seating is adequate, but should be more comfortable, and addition of cup holders for beverages would help. Parking on Main St is still an issue, so you may need to drop folks off and hunt for a space.

Our venue was a documentary film followed by a live presentation that was excellent!

It's Magic at the Lantern!
Nov 2017
I love this theater. The Lantern has been in Spokane for a long time, even though it was closed for awhile and later moved to the current location. They have REAL homemade popcorn in aluminum bowls like you might use at home. Its small and intimate with coffee and snacks. They play movies you may not be able to see at the bigger theaters. It's a treat to have a night at the Lantern...and there are plenty of restaurants nearby for drinks and a meal before or after a movie!
