WHAT IS RETRO CINEMA & BOOKS?
Much more than merely a cinema or a wine bar; Retro Cinema is an experience... an unforgettable, enjoyable, experience. Consider:
Situated in Historic Downtown Madison, Georgia, Retro Cinema fills an entire historic building that has served various roles in its near 100 year history.
From The Retro's gigantic outdoor Hollywood mural, to its HOLLYWOOD memorabilia studded displays, a visit to Retro Cinema is awe inspiring. A walk inside our building evokes the feeling of returning to a time, and place, when searching for a rare gift or watching a classic movie was a worthy experience in and of itself.
Retro Cinema has received outstanding reviews from newspapers whose reporters have traveled to see for themselves just what makes this experience so special. Click on the In The News tab to read of their discoveries here.
Browse our vast selection of vintage movie memorabilia. Retro Cinema prides itself in offering the most diverse and selection of movie posters, Hollywood books and much, much more!
Many comment that watching a classic movie at Retro Cinema is like being invited to a private screening at a movie studio. Posh seats, plush interior and generous room to relax makes for an enjoyable movie experience.
Thanks to a film vault shelved with hundreds of rare Hollywood films, and our partnership with 20th Century Fox, Sony Classic Movies, Magnolia and Shadow Distribution movie fans are treated to an exciting mix of unforgettable films; from Westerns, to Romance- from Bogart to Elvis- we show them all!
Watching a film at Retro Cinema also allows you to enjoy your picks from our fully stocked Concession Stand. Care for a glass of vintage wine or beer from The Retro's Backstage Wine Bar? No problem; it will be yours to sip as you watch the movie.
Our movies may be rare and vintage but our electronics aren't. Thanks to our digital projection system, Dolby 5.1 surround sound system and re-mastered prints many of our movies look and sound as good-or better- than they did when first released.
After a day of filming actors, directors and producers typically meet in a collegial atmosphere to review and plan. These gatherings were often "backstage" and the mood enhanced with fine wines and hors' doeuvres. The Retro has re-created the look and feel of those special Hollywood days in its "backstage wine bar." Plush leather seating, rare film memorabilia and exotic wines and beers offer an unparalleled experience.
