The Idea

As a genuine arthouse cinema, we’re unabashedly committed to bringing to the Sierra foothills the finest, funnest, smartest and all-around best offerings of independent first-run titles from Hollywood and around the world. Film is at the center of The Onyx experience, and our hope is that the people sitting in our seats will connect with the dramas, comedies, documentaries and other works we present; creating a shared experience in a cozy, friendly environment where you might even feel or learn something you didn’t quite expect, or make a new friend.
