Man, I LIVED in this place in the summer of 1989! Batman (six times!), Star Trek V, The Little Mermaid, Ghostbusters II, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Great memories there!

The Aperture took over in 2002 after the Northpoint Cinemas closed. For years the Northpoint 5 was to place to go see first-run exclusive features as well as arthouse, independent films along with documentaries, foreign and Oscar winning presentations. It also had the opportunity to screen second-run films and once in a blue moon reissue standard Hollywood classics(ranging from “Gone With The Wind”, to “Casablanca” and “Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo”). It was Winston-Salem’s only arthouse theater from 1987 until it closed in 2002.

For many years Northpoint 5 was the go-to place for foreign, arthouse, indpendent and award-winning films. It was a great theatre. I hated when it closed. Luckily, Aperture kind of fills that void now, but Aperture’s screens and seating is not the best.

I loved this theatre growing up. Around the time I was in high school, it was the only theatre in the area that would let you into R-rated films without an ID. They also played many controversial arthouse style pictures, including ‘Romance’ and ‘Y Tu Mama Tambien’
