Originally built as a Zion Episcopal church in 1836, Newport’s only downtown cinema is elegant inside and out. Just see its old-time marquee sign and Greek Revival pediment, and inside find an antique organ placed next to the stage, and 500 seats split between an orchestra and balcony. Even the programming is tastefully done, with indie and foreign films—plus occasional screenings of classics like Dr. Zhivago and the 1949 version of The Great Gatsby—taking precedence over the latest summer blockbuster.
