The Riverside 12 movie theater in downtown Reno is considered to be the project that started redevelopment in downtown Reno. Taking an ugly city block and transforming it into a state-of-the-art theater and retail complex was the first step to bringing people downtown. This theater has a big spacious lobby with concessions and a separate espresso bar, and very steep stadium seating to ensure your view isn't blocked during your movie, and the latest and greatest digital sound. Go catch a movie! Park in the Garage across the street from the movie theater (entrance is on First Street) and your parking is free with validated movie ticket.
