The Enzian Theatre ~ Maitland, FL
Nestled in a cluster of oak trees and hidden under hanging moss, Enzian is a delightful vintage theatre that attracts a fun crowd of artsy and eclectic visitors from the greater Orlando area.
The theatre shows one movie at a time, though several different movies a day may be shown depending on the time. Inside the theatre lobby, posters of past visitors–many of them big Hollywood stars–decorate the walls. The theatre interior is newly updated with comfortable tables, sofas and chairs.
The food at Enzian is a delight. Waiters come by as soon as guests sit down and take orders. The beer and wine list is well-chosen and features a terrific selection at average prices. The food menu has delicious items, like gorgonzola chicken pizza, tomato soup with focacia grilled cheese, and fresh salads and succulent burgers.
Outside, there is plenty of space in the garden to sit down and enjoy a cocktail served up by the Eden Bar. The bar tender doesn’t blink an eye when you order a rare, complex, or top shelf drink. Nothing beats sitting in the garden drinking Campari and feeling the breeze whistle through the trees. Truly, the Enzian is a local treasure not to be missed. Go for a show, enjoy dinner, and sit outside sipping a hand-crafted cocktail under the stars.
For visitors who like free options, on Wednesday night Enzian puts on a “Pitcher Show” free to the public. Check out the latest showing here.
