The West End Movies opened in 2009. This independent featured art and classic movies. It evidently wasn’t too successful since the theatre closed in 2010.

This theater operated in a single room in an upper floor of a business complex. The floor was carpeted, the seats were folding chairs, and there was a single screen and (probably consumer-grade) digital projector. It accommodated maybe around 60 people. There was a small concession area in the same room with freshly-popped popcorn.

It was a small business with limited clientele. The employees and patrons were friendly and cordial. It filled a very small niche, and at the time, it didn’t need to be anything more. Greenville’s downtown area had been recently revitalized when this business opened, but there were far fewer residents at the time, so it was a risk. The city has grown by leaps and bounds in the intervening years since its closure. No doubt, this kind of thing would be more popular now for Downtown’s nascent, courtly denizens.

I screened the original Metropolis and Nosferatu silent movies here. It was a simple, but quite positive, experience.
