about Enzian Theater:
The Enzian is a member-supported organization, and the theater's mission is to entertain, inspire, educate, and connect the community through film. Most movies screened at the theater are geared towards adults, but there are definitely films - and festivals - for the entire family.
The theater itself is a cozy retreat, with plush chairs and interspersed tables that give off the sense that you're watching a movie at home - with a hundred or so of your closest friends. You can even have a full meal at the theater. Offering sandwiches, salads, pizzas, and more, the menu provides more than your typical popcorn option.
Speaking of festivals, the Enzian hosts some of the best around. KidFest, normally held in the summer, is a week-long event featuring a Young Filmmakers' Academy and screenings of unusual and classic children's films. By far the most popular is the Florida Film Festival, a ten-day event with narrative and documentary features and shorts, animation, family films, and a full array of educational forums, glamorous parties, and other special events.
Another special program - co-presented with the City of Winter Park - is Popcorn Flicks. On the second Thursday of each month, classic films are screened for free in Central Park. Free popcorn is provided, but bring your own blanket or lawn chair. And be prepared for a pause in the movie when the train goes by.
