“The level of service at TERRACE THEATER is fantastic. Having been a customer for many years, I am consistently impressed by the professionalism of every staff member I have come in contact with. Thank you!” THE SPARRICINO FAMILY!
“We sometimes go to the Terrace Theater without even checking the listings, because we know there will be at least one movie that we want to see. In fact, the hard thing is usually choosing which film to see first. The atmosphere in The Terrace is so nice, and it’s great being among other film lovers, including the staff themselves. We don’t know what we’d do without the Terrace– it’s one of our main meccas here in Chas. We are so glad to have access to so many great independent movies thanks to the Terrace.”
“Hello, Paul, My wife and I usually spend a week in  Charleston every summer.  While there we like to visit the Terrace for a film or two.  Our visit this year is the 4th of July week.  Can you tell us what will be playing that week, so we can avoid seeing them in Nashville next week (e.g., MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING) IF we can catch them at the Terrace during our week in Charleston?  Thanks for the help.”
