The Little Theatre – #1

240 East Avenue
Rochester, NY 14604


In 1929, The Little Theatre opened its doors with a mission of providing moviegoers with an intimate alternative to the Hollywood-dominated programming that was standard fare at the large downtown movie houses. Over the years, The Little has stayed true to its mission by providing Rochester with an independent spirit. They have expanded from the historical landmark Art Deco theater on East Avenue to include four more screens, a café, art exhibits, live music, film festivals, talkbacks, and educational programs.

Theater 1, the largest screening venue and the original theater, is housed in the signature building on East Avenue.
