Very thought provoking movies are brought to the big screen here. Sometimes there are even people who are involved with the movies that have Q & A sessions

Interesting underground theater in an old building. Definitely worth a look if you have not been before.

Cool place to watch a movie with substance. It felt like I was back in the 80's which was a positive experience. Nice people, not crowded, decent concessions. Only "negative" as mentioned in previous review- the seats are from the 80's too. Not the most...More

Everytime I come to see a movie at the Ross I feel like I get a little more "culture" in my diet. I'm glad this theatre is in Lincoln

Wonderful production of Macbeth from New York. Will go to these offering again soon. The opera was complete with subtitles which helps me greatly as I am a novice where opera is concerned. For what we saw, it was very reasonably priced, too.

Give it a try. Fantastic assortment of films to see. Something for everyone. Very comfortable theatre and fun location on campus of UNL. A gem for the City of Lincoln and our guests.

Always a great time with unique movies -- we're lucky to have this theater in town. Always a great experience, and, unfortunately, no crowds to fight so you're in and out easily unlike the Grand down the street.
