James Island Cinema
This theater has been around for what seems like forever, but that makes it all the more charming. Located thirty minutes from Kiawah and just minutes from Folly Beach, this has been my go-to theater for years. There are never more than a couple of people working, but that seems to work for them. The theater is old but clean and well-maintained. The screens and sound are okay, but the seats could definitely use an upgrade. They're a total throwback to the days of slim, rigid theater chairs. I've never been to a sold-out showing here, so chances are pretty good that you'll have the theater (mostly) to yourself. They don't serve alcohol, and the concession offerings are pretty basic, but this is definitely a solid option if you're in the area.
