In 1985, Enzian began as a repertory house offering six to 12 classic films each week as well as the occasional live show. By 1989 had Enzian refocused and moved into the then-risky field of showing first-run independent features. Surrounded by weeping oaks, a bubbling fountain, and a beautiful courtyard, Enzian Theater is a unique movie-going experience. It’s Central Florida’s only full-time, non-for-profit alternative cinema.
There were no comments here, so I put up something from the theatre’s website. I saw Inherit The Wind here in 1986, and it was a unique experience: instead of theatre seats, there were tables and chairs. You could bring your dinner in from the attached restaurant; and eat while watching the movie!

The Enzian has added a bar to the restaurant. This has got to be one of the swankiest places to see an independent film in the world.

Here’s a recent article.

The Enzian is one of a kind in Central Florida.

It’s also home to the Central Florida Film Festival.
