Sometimes you just gotta say… FLICKIT!

About Us

Welcome to FlickIt! Fridays
at Naro Cinema!

Over $34,000 Raised To Date for Local Non-Profits!

Naro Cinema is an independent movie theater located in the heart of the Ghent neighborhood in Norfolk, VA. Originally opened in 1936 as The Colley Theater, this single-screen, art-deco style theater has been operated by the current owners since 1977.

FlickIt! Fridays is our monthly movie series that combines having a great time with supporting your local community. It was created in 2016 by two of the Naro’s long-term employees, Theresa Schindler and Atlanta Daniel, as a way to encourage a younger audience to frequent the cinema.  It proved extremely popular and grew into the fundraiser it is today.

Each month we partner up with one of our local non-profits to bring a beloved Cult Classic back to the big screen for a night of pure nostalgic enjoyment. In addition to our usual delicious Naro Cinema concessions, the chosen non-profit will be selling local brews with all proceeds going to support their cause. We rotate through non-profits and local sponsors each month to spread the love as much as we can. It’s a win-win!

Our spinoff series, Naro-Minded, was created in 2017 as an exclusive partnership with our next-door neighbors, Naro Expanded Video.

UPDATE: RIP Naro-Minded and Naro Expanded Video. Naro Video closed their doors in September 2019, and they will be forever missed.

We also host seasonal series throughout the year — Fright Nights, NaroKids!, Holiday Classics, 20/20 Perfect Visions, Universal Monster Matinees… — and hope that you enjoy the show!
