I found this place on Trip Advisor..and it is a very awesome theater showing great independent films...three theaters with the largest one having 50 seats. One of the theaters has about 10 comfy chairs in it...just like your living room! The hosts were very friendly too!

Didn't know what to expect at the Showroom on our first visit but found ourselves seated in a very comfortable 15 lounge chair theatre. Like having a private screening room in your own mansion. Our second visit was a larger venue - maybe 50 theatre seats where we thoroughly enjoyed Scully. And there is a third room as well. Don't... More

First time visiting this theater. It's tiny with only 5 rows of seats about 15 across. Very clean and comfortable. The snacks are geared toward vegans but there are other things to munch on also. Priced the same as other theaters. But remember the meters. In effect till midnight so check the length of the show. The people working there... More

A cute independent movie theatre with 3 movie rooms. Comfortable seats, great snack bar and friendly service. There's an ice cream shop right next door that has yummy traditional and vegan ice cream.

Gorgeous newly renovated cinema with extremely comfortable seats and a great lineup of movies. BUT the best thing I loved about The Showroom was their snack bar.... I'm a foodie. They had the most delicious snacks you would NEVER think would be sold in a cinema. My kids got kale chips, I got some gluten free cookies and a superb... More

The Showroom in Asbury Park is my favorite theater in the shore area. The owners are very hospitable and treat you like family. There are three small intimate theaters in which to view films. All the films are first rate and non- commercial. It is a pleasure to have The Showroom in Asbury Park, NJ.

This place is about 4.5 stars, but that's only because it's a bit expensive. They have a 13 seat venue which is like watching from your living room. That theater has comfortable chairs like you'd have at home. The 30 seat theatre is cozy, but not cramped. This like the biggest theater has traditional movie seats. The big theater holds... More
