Upcoming Shows


Lexington Venue


The Lexington Venue is a small, independently-owned movie theater in Lexington center. The films on offer are current, the popcorn is tasty, and there’s a parking lot directly behind the theater. Venue audiences tend to be adults who know how to behave properly and are grateful to pay a bit less that at the multiplexes.

I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti
For Giulia, an Italian New Yorker trying to navigate life as a single gal, a new date is the perfect opportunity to show off her home cooking. While preparing a three-course dinner from scratch, she recounts stories of good Italian food and bad boyfriends. Her superior cuisine far surpasses her inferior taste in men in this mouth-watering new comedy.

Eight audience members at each performance can even purchase seats to join Giulia on stage and be served the dinner she is cooking during the show!
