This is a place for people with a real passion for film, those who can’t wait to see the latest independent release, or a re-showing of the movies that they can spend hours happily dissecting. The owners have made it their mission to bring the visiting customers an experience that will have them coming back again and again. There’s been a genuine focus to equip the theatre with top quality sound, a brilliant looking picture, and comfortable and well-placed seating.

The Belmont

If your idea of a mesmerising night out, is getting dressed up in some glad-rags and polishing off some exquisite cocktails, then we have just the place for you. The Belmont is located on Upper King Street and has a sophisticated, but laid-back, vibe that makes it an easy place to enjoy a night sampling some of the delicious drinks on the menu. Some of the marvellous options on the cocktail menu include; Bells of Jalisco, Belmont Manhattan, Bootsy Collins, Beatnik, and an Americano. They also serve all the classics, and can also put their own delicious twists on a whole range of them.

The decoration of the bar is gorgeously understated, and mirrors its high-chic, but without trying too-hard, approach. There are even classic black and white films projected onto one of the walls, so you can take inspiration from icons of the golden age of Hollywood.

The bar is open every day from 6pm till 2am, and can be found at 511 King Street,

Charleston, SC 29403.
