The legendary South Street Head House District in Philadelphia has character and lots to offer anyone, residents and visitors alike. Jim’s Steaks, the TLA, Lorenzo’s Pizza, rolled ice cream (and lots of other treats), Brauhaus Schmitz (a great spot to watch the World Cup), Retrospect Vintage, Philly AIDS Thrift (just around the corner), shopping, festivals and now… its own movie theater: South Street Cinema.

Find it at 327 South Street, across from the TLA. Stop in and see what’s playing any day of the week or check here for event listings. Kristen recently had the chance to chat with Bill Arrowood, who runs the theater. Listen above, or check below for the basics about South Street’s cool new spot:

1.) It’s cheap. Pay what you like. (suggested $5 donation)

2.) It’s BYOB (just “don’t be a jerk about it”)

3.) There’s FREE popcorn!

4.) Movies and content you won’t see anywhere else. Special features include 80’s Friday nights and Saturday afternoon kids matinees. Plus, marathons like ‘Crazy for Swayze’ , “Cage Match” (pitting Nicholas Cage movies against one another), and playing the Bill Murray movie Groundhogs Day ALL DAY on February 2nd.
