Nestled away in downtown Sarasota, in the middle of historic Burns Square, is a small raspberry-colored theater that many people consider a landmark of the surrounding area. After opening its doors in 1993, Burns Court Cinemas has continually proven to be the best place around to find first-run, hand-picked foreign language, independent, and art films.
Showcasing nothing but the best cinema has to offer, Burns Court Cinemas is also home to many annual festivals and series which have become staple events for the Sarasota area. One of the most popular, Cine-World, has striven to bring films from all different countries, cultures, and communities within the framework of a weeklong, extremely exciting and popular event.
Many of the films shown here are obscure, and lack prominent media coverage, but don't let that keep you from coming and checking it out. We know that many people don't have the time to spend countless hours researching and tracking film releases from across the globe, and that's why we're here to do that for you! Come on in to the lobby and you'll find fliers on each film that's currently showing as well as what's coming soon. We're happy to provide you with all the synopses and reviews, to make finding the right films for you as easy and pleasurable a task as possible.
