Williamsburg gets hot in the summer, so a retreat to a modern theater was very appreciated at the end of the day. The Kimball shows the latest films from indie, documentary, and art house genres. The building itself is cool, intimate, and old (like everything in Williamsburg). Apparently theater students at the nearby William and Mary College put on performances here as well as small, music acts. When we went there weren’t any live performances, but the air conditioning was definitely enjoyed.
