350 Alvarado St., Monterey
An Osio Cinemas employee recently shared that an elder patron yelled at her because the theater was showing The Human Centipede 2. And therein lies the beauty of this downtown Monterey movie house: They make fringe the mainstream here, while still offering the popular flicks that appeal to the masses. Osio also teams up with nearby Montrio Bistro for dual movie tickets and dinner for two, making it the perfect place for date night. Get there early and grab a coffee and baked treat at the theater’s lobby-located Cafe Lumiere.
