We are a small family and locally owned business. Zach was raised in Ashe County. By day he teaches at the local community college and by night Zach and his wife, Kristell, both run the Movie Lounge. Kristell is originally from Venezuela but lived in Northern Virginia as an IT Consultant before moving to Ashe county with her husband. Our daughter February just recently turned two and our second, Francis, was just born this Thanksgiving day!
About The Movie Lounge
Welcome home movie lovers! We wanted to create a space that felt like your own intimate living room but without compromising the picture quality and sound of a big theater. We are a full service digital theater with a twist. The Movie Lounge came about as a creation of combining things we love. As a business owner raised in Ashe County, it is an honor to share our little treasure to our beautiful neck of the woods.
We have recently become a two screen theater! Each side is unique and tries to preserve the original structure. Did you know our buildings were built in 1916?
Welcome home! Step inside side 1 and snuggle up on your favorite chair. You'll often see movie loungers with their favorite blankets cozying up with their favorite snacks. You can admire the original Tin wall, concrete floor and walls and our beautiful wooden ceiling. If you look close enough you can see all the original nails and craftmanship from the 1916.
Now open! It's located next door to our first screen. Please pardon us while we continue to finish renovations. Zach and I do almost all the work ourselves while juggling a cute 2 year old so it does take us a little longer to finish. This side has a wall with a few of the movie posters we showed during our first year of being open. Our concession area has a chalkboard wall which often changes with seasonal drawings and the latest drinks and snacks.
So please, give us a try. With our brand new state of the art digital cinema projectors and dolby surround sound, we can't wait to see and hear what you have to share!

PERSONAL SERVICE BY THE OWNERS
Have special needs? We believe everyone should enjoy the movies. That's why we do things like stock special equipment for the visual and hearing impaired, or offer low volume opportunities for those sensitive to sound.
CLOSED CAPTIONING DEVICE (CC)
Moviegoers who are hearing impaired can see captions with their personal closed captioning device. The devices offer personal monitors with digital text displays that easily attach to cup holder armrests and allow the user to adjust the monitor to their preferred position. The devices are wireless and easy to use.
ASSISTED LISTENING DEVICE (ALD)
Guests who have some hearing loss can amplify the movie soundtrack through their personal ALD. The devices are wireless headsets that receive a signal that allows the user to customize the volume to their liking.
AUDIO DESCRIPTION DEVICE (AD)
Those who are visually impaired can receive additional audio narration with their personal audio description headset. The headsets provide the user with additional description of the visual setting and action taking place on the screen. The devices are wireless and easy to use.
